RIP OFF THE LABELS!

July 8, 2017

Unlabeled

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.

Perhaps

there is a lesson

here for you andme?

Just today, another young life lost whom I knew and many I never knew, due to labels. . .some self imposed, some by society or classmates or undefined loud mouths thrust upon them, but lives lost again aand again needlessly.  Each loved, each with purpose. When will we learn.

 

 

but by His love

 


NOPE! Sure was NOT Me!

June 12, 2017

I have a friend who wakes up all aglow and usually singing.  My late Mom often woke up singing church hymns.  Me?  Clear the way!  I need my coffee, shower, and quiet-time!  Yes,  I sometimes awaken in song, but not too often.  Not today.

sleeping

How we feel does not need to rule the day.  Hope is within us

freedom thoughts

.  Pray with me . . .

Lord,

I give my all to you and

ask that you enable me

to reflect your joy and hope

on this day and always. Amen

In you, Lord my God,

    I put my trust.

REFLECTING ON THE CROSS

April 7, 2017

The REAL Joy

reflecting on the crossI enjoy the applause.

Admiration is nice for a time

but,

my lasting joy

is reflecting the Lord in all I AM and do.

I am nothing without His love.

The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

It is neither late nor light

HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 28, 2016

 

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.
