A lovely late spring day
promises a bit of refreshment
from sniffing and sneezing.
As I smile with unspoken joy
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!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

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

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!
