I closed my eyes,

listened to the music,

and knew it came from You!

My drab day brightened

as the gray mist washed away

by the waves of color

drifted about my heart and soul.

Anxiety was quickly forgotten.

Hope’s brightness easily replaced it

like a love song . . .

while violyn kissed piano

and my soul drifted joyfully

in a dance that will never end.

Don’t Stop At Chapter One!

August 15, 2013


When you begin a new book, chapter 1 really grabs you!  It’s exciting, new, inspiring, and fills you with wonder . . . but if you only read and reread chapter 1, it loses something and will soon be none of those things and simply bore and disappoint.  You must go on to the next chapters with their new insights and challenges .

It is equally true whether you are the story-teller or the listener.  Keep going forward, good disciples!  Fear of the unknown . . . giving in to that fear, also means you miss the grace and blessings it holds for you!
