LOOKING BEYOND . . .

May 8, 2018

Too often I focus on the fallen leaves

Scattered on my weed covered bit of earth.

Signs of death and decay?

Perhaps, and yet . .  .

A rake,

A hoe,

A change of focus,

And new buds and blossoms appear .  . .

Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.

Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!

BROKEN YET BLESSED

November 6, 2017

A broken dish

having fallen to its demise

was never to hold treasure again.

Not so,

the pieces of my broken heart,

held in His hands

mended

healed

expanded

returned to me

with His grace.

Thunderous applause

Rose – more pretty and more sweet

Following the storm

AS THE RAIN PASSES BY

April 20, 2017

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

SPREAD THE GOSPEL

December 26, 2016

A new flower grows

A mature plant dropped its seed

Grace pours down like rain

WHAT? I’M NO TART!

November 15, 2016

Honestly, if life was all sweet, would we appreciate it?

Would we grow?

 I firmly believe we need some tart!

SEASONS OF RENEWAL

November 7, 2016

A change of season always brings renewal.

 When we open ourselves to the possibilities,

we see the beauty!  

When we walk in faith,

we reflect the sun!
