LIGHT STILL SHINES ON A DARK WEEK

May 24, 2017

LOOK FOR IT!

The sun still shines

on dark rainy days.

You can see it reflected

in EVERY puddle!

POUNCE!

SPLASH!

SMILE!

Thunderous applause

Rose – more pretty and more sweet

REBORN AND REFRESHED

May 16, 2017

Like The Garden Grows

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!

Tears of Joy

May 6, 2017

I sit at the water’s edge

hearing the music of the droplets

tumbling over the rocks at the shore . . .

sounds of strength and hope.

HOPE REVEALED

March 27, 2017

UNDRAPED JOY

my other office

A lack luster morning

Holding me back

From being all I can be

And doing all I can do

Instantly made better by throwing open the drapes

And letting in the Son!

HOPE RISING

March 19, 2017

He’s Got This

 

The rain continues to pour

As darkness claims the sky

But

I looked up

And saw through a crack in a cloud

That the sun is still near.

Hope rises.

Come . . .

March 11, 2017

I was in our special place.

I needed to ask . . .

but did not see you.

I called out,

sensing your nearness.waiting

There you were.

“Here,  my child,

I’ve been waiting”
