MORNING GLORY

April 21, 2017

 

Today is nothing special . . .

I have no particular plan.

I woke up feeling joyful

Just because I can.

 

Some will find this rather odd.

I feel sorry for them.

But as for me, I’m praising God!

Glory without end!

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

SOMETIMES “NOTHING” IS EVERYTHING

April 12, 2017

I wanted to  give the right gift,

the perfect one.

I had little money

and few skills.

IT NEEDED TO BE PERFECT!

I grew more and more disappointed.

Eventually,

with tears in my eyes

and empty hands,

I threw myself to the ground

and cried out

“I love you!”

He was pleased.

“I AM HE!”

April 8, 2017

When I am wounded,

I have two options

from which to choose.

I can stare at it,

poke it

again and again,

and worry why it does not heal,

or

I can take my trouble

to the One who can!

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.

IN YOUR ARMS . . .

April 6, 2017

Dancing In The Spirit

As I rest in your embrace

your immeasurable outpouring of love

makes my spirit dance and sing

as I bask in your glory.

Together,

there is nothing we can’t do.

I am yours.
