JOURNEY WITH JESUS

February 16, 2019

The path,

this sacred journey,

is filled with sharp turns .. .

corners around which we cannot see,

but oh, the beauty He has placed there

just waiting for us!

Keep moving forward

with Him!

HAPPY TEARS

January 28, 2019

Memories are not always heartbreakers. There will come a time when tears become joy as the love is still in our hearts. As I wrote something on a different time in my life, though I miss people, places, and things from back then, I also feel the joy and love that I felt then and still can feel IT.. At this moment my feet are cold because this artist feels the snow that had fallen . . and the glow of evening’s moonlight. I can see Mom’s smiling face watching me through the window and can recall her scurrying off to bed so I would not know she watched. She didn’t want to upset me. Silly Mama! IT NEVER DID!

NEW ENGLAND IN WINTER

January 28, 2019

This image was taken by me in the home I used to live in.  Winter was steadily providing snow and I was stronger then and loved to go out in the middle of the night to shovel as I was a banker then and needed to get to my office.  The moonlight reflected on the new fallen snow glowed  so my yard lookedlike midday.  There were always neighbors out doing the saame thing as me.  We often had PJs on with storm wear.  I can still feel the warmth of those times in my life!

Warmth In Winter

Though it’s still winter,

YOUR CHOICE . . . SULK OR SOAR

January 22, 2019

She stood in the corner alone and sad

and looking at the crowd, she wished she could join them

but did not.

People asked the band. . . .

“Oh, please play this!”

Still, she stayed in her corner thinking

“I don’t like this music!”

Did it NOT occur to her

to ask,

to seek,

to knock?

LIFE IS ASTONISHING!

January 18, 2019

I just bought a new devotionals book on praise so perhaps this is why my interpretation of the following quote made me think of my life as a Christian.  It is encouraging regardless of our individual interpretations.  Enjoy!

Instructions for living a life. 
Pay attention. 
Be astonished. 
Tell about it.

The sun is shining

on old dusty memories

while the birds sing praise
