PEACE ON THE EDGE!

April 4, 2017

Just when you feel it all slipping away

and you are ready to let go,

you truly are on the very cusp of something GRAND!

 Hold on,  breathe deeply, keep praying, believe!

DE COLORES

. . . because life was not meant to be just black and white!

 Our individuality was meant for blessing, not distressing!

THE REAL PROBLEM!

March 23, 2017

We fix one symptom, pat ourselves on the back, put our feet up, and nap . . . never facing up to the REAL problem.  Why, then, do we complain that “nothing ever changes” and “nobody cares!”

ARE YOU A CARROT OR A PEA?

March 20, 2017

Grocery shopping can be vexing.

In order to obtain what we need, to meet health restructions, etc., we must read every label, hope for full and clear disclosure, yet still discover we have not seen enough to judge.

WHY then, knowing only God can know a human heart, do we persist in placing a label on one another?

INSTINCT

March 15, 2017

In my heart and thus my life,

love is an instinct.

I was created by Love,

in the image of Love,

in love,

through love,

to love.

Many failures may befall me,

but,

Love never fails!

Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!

 

 


A STONE’S THROW

February 18, 2017

 

I took a stroll

On a clear day.

Passing a brook,

I bent to pick up a stone

And tossed it in

And OH the ripples

Spread far and wide

From that one small gesture.

Believe!

ENCOURAGEMENT DURING THE STORM

February 10, 2017

Seasons Do Change

As the choir sang

In my personal sanctuary

I heard the last bits of the rains of yesterday

Drip from the roof deck above.

Tiny bits of pollen in the air

Caused an itch

Or the occasional twitch,

But brought as well a reminder

Of the coming of spring.

It won’t be long, now.
