REJOICE AND BE GLAD

September 8, 2018

My world is quiet.

As I begin to awaken

My puppy gives me an eager kiss

And her favorite toy.

The worries of yesterday

Try to find me

As I prepare the morning coffee at the sink.

All I hear is the running tap

But I think of cleansing water

As I push those inner clouds away

And glance out the window

As the aroma fills the room

And I see the rising sun

Brightening the land

As it reflects on the dew kissed lawn.

I see the glorious blue sky

Filter through the branches of the trees.

Then, I heard them!

Countless tiny birds

Sing Your praises

And I, smiling broadly,

Cannot help but join them!

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.

A Glimpse of Heaven

August 17, 2018

I believe the birds sing more sweetly than ever when they see me in my favorite spot, the white wicker settee, rejoicing with them. All the stress and uncertainty drifts away and only hope and joy remains.
