Branch Out!

June 11, 2019

If a tree were to resist

shedding her colorful autumn leaves,

when would come spring?

When would come summer?

If we resist change

we cannot question why

we do not grow.

Do not choose death – choose life!

YES, YES, YES!

You were always there for me

Loving,

Guiding,

Protecting me

And yet,

I took you for granted

Until one day.

I looked deep into your eyes

And you looked to my heart

And I gave it to you.

Then,

I was reborn!

When We Call

UNRAVELLED

 

 

We begin life finely knit together,

One to another,

No labels,

Many colors,

Plump or delicate,

Uniquely different yet all the same

In likeness to Him.

Sadly,

We mature and our eyes,

Those human orbs,

Deny the truth held in our hearts.

Wisdom From Uncle George

October 25, 2018

Some see things as they are and ask why

— I dream things that never were and say why not.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE

August 20, 2018

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.
