Took a shaking step . . .

suddenly my spirit soars . . .

faith overcomes fear . . .

The leaves fluttered as the storm winds blew

And seemed to hidetheir faces

From the menacing clouds

Yet, on the very same branch,

One tiny bird sang sweetly.’

The Coming

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

In Season . . . Quote For Tuesday

April 8, 2014

Deuteronomy 11:14-16

14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.

Sorrow Has Passed

August 17, 2013

The clouds appeared

Then rain fell in torrents.

The flower,

Once parched,

Now found her petals

Heavy and drooping with tears.

But the clouds passed away . . .

The glow of sun reappeared,

And her tears?

They had become pure joy!

Song of Solomon 2:11-13

King James Version (KJV)

11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
