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!

MORE THAN ENOUGH

May 2, 2018

I pray and I pray

“Lord, give me strength!”

All He did

was infuse me

with His love.

Thank you!

SING UNTO HIM A NEW SONG

Ah, morning breezes

leaves sway to your melody

sunrays dance along

PATH IN THE WOODS


Among Weeds and Thorns

January 10, 2018

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

THE GIFT

Finally sunshine!

I step out into the cold and see

a rose withstood the frost!

HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 9, 2017

 

The house is quiet.

It is early morning

And the moon is handing the reins to the sun.

The illusion of darkness fades

As the breath of a new day

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.

THE EYES OF OUR HEARTS!

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
