Are You Blessed? A Challenge!

October 16, 2014

I was just given the following task and I am sharing it with you.  Please take a moment to answer the challenge and if you like, share you response by linking this post to your blog and let us read it!

The task:

Look around you right now. Really look. Take a few deep breaths and notice the beauty in the ordinary.  Share what you discover!

My response:

It is a lovely October day here in SC. I have my home office windows open to the cool air and sounds of my childhood . . . kids coming home from school and having fun, dogs barking happily, birds singing, men at work renovating their homes with power tools . . . the sounds and scents of cut lumber and mowed lawns brings Dad, my childhood home, my playmates back to me . . . it is like music and perfume to me. Blessings known by all the senses.

How about you?  A colored leaf? A puppy’s kiss?  A broken cookie?  What?

Hope

Looking through the branches

was like peering beyond the veil

of darkness into day . . .

from death into life.

Daily Prompt: Back to School

July 26, 2013

 As The Master Sees

Ah, to learn what I had known so well.

As a wee one all around me,

whether sky or the common flea . .  .

All was amazing!

The overlooked trappings of life

Were not overlooked by me!

A puddle was never to be stepped over,

But jumped into with glee!

Every sound was music,

Every step a dance!

As I grew older,

I learned so much!

Suddenly,

I question that.

Perhaps, I knew far better

Way back when . . .

And Why Not?

July 22, 2013

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” – Robert Kennedy

There have been so many times life has brought me “why” situations and admittedly they are often expressed in the tone of a whine.  Sometimes, though, the Lord has led me in directions where I have felt surprised and unable and thought “but why?” in a fearful yet “could it really be?” sort of way.  When I have moved ahead in faith, I have been enabled and blessed.

Of late there have been a lot of both going on.  The former and the latter have both grown MUCH LARGER.  Am I being tested in a new season?  Am I being blessed in a wonderful way?  The impossible challenges sure can be a “never were” and the fear can be staggering, but with faith and trust in Him, no matter how many tell me “you’re crazy!” I don’t have to listen.  I can say “and why not?” knowing He’ll be there EVERY TIME.
