REFRESHED AND BLESSED

March 25, 2019

A lovely late spring day

promises a bit of refreshment

from sniffing and sneezing.

As I smile with unspoken joy

reflecting heavenward

from my appreciative smile

I feel a gentle breeze tickle me!

I find that a leaf laden branch from my tree

happily waves its many new leaves to its Maker

as it shares my joy

and springs into new life!

just like silly little elves

cardinal singing

It is cold in my sanctuary this morning

But so vast a choir sings so sweetly

That my heart is warmed

And my spirit renewed.

OPEN YOUR HEART!

February 22, 2019

I remember a company I worked for and was blessed to do so for many years.  BUT On rainy, gloomy days it seemed as if when one wore black and came in grumpy, soon the entire office was disagreeable and it was doubtful many were aware of this, nor had a good reason why. What a change a slight bit of effort to bless one another surely would have made!

If we know the truth of the following words and that they apply to each of us created in His image, AS WE ARE, why must the hate continue to defeat love? Where is peace?

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:14

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!
