CLAY IN HIS HANDS

July 29, 2019

A pot made of clay

by skilled hands . . .

we, too, are thus made

by the Creator God’s hands.

So many types of clay,

so many types of pots,

the Lord GOD lovingly made us all.

They come in different colors, strengths,

yet,

all have value,

all made with equal amounts of love.

Sadly, more importance is placed

on global warming,

than human life.

News broadcasted multi times daily

speaks more of “another” shooting.

than a “tragic” one.

Is there a right or wrong side of the street??

a right or wrong skin color??

We were created with immeasurable love, all of us.

Will we ever put the guns down?

YOU BE THE JUDGE . . . OR NOT

April 8, 2019

We all have opinions, but be super careful in sharing them.  Religion, politics, gender, nationality, sexuality, intellect, and so much more . . . 

SO SAD TO REALIZE THAT WHEN WE HURT OTHERS BY PLAYING GOD, WE ARE OFTEN HURTING OURSELVES AS  WELL AS OTHERS AND GOD HIMSELF BY UNFAIR STATEMENTS AND . . .  

REVEALING OUR PERSONAL FLAWS – DISPLAYING OUR

 

DIRTY LAUNDRY!

WHAT HAPPENED TO LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS?

Still Loving Thy Neighbors?

Used to be when new folks came to our neighborhood we welcomed them, made friends, greeted them with homemade bread or a meal . . . we all got along and lasting, valued relationships were created.

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

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?

I DON’T ADMIRE YOU. . .

July 5, 2017

It’s true.

Admire?

I admire the way you comb your hair,

and the way you mow my lawn.

YOU mean more than what YOU DO;

yes, even what you do for me!

YOU are my neighbor . . . friend . . . brother . . . sister.

You?  I LOVE!
