THE GIFT OF THE JOURNEY

December 20, 2017

I heard the sweet sound of a bird

calling out from a high branch.

No answer,

he didn’t give up.

He showed no anger.

He listened . . .

he called again.

He sang.

He enjoyed his perch,

then called again

and waited some more.

He performed daily tasks while waiting.

The cycle repeated.

THEN,

the right time came

and he got the Word .. .

He sang with such joy!

Love is patient.

Love never fails!

Love is eternal.

THE GIFT

Finally sunshine!

I step out into the cold and see

a rose withstood the frost!

His Garden

December 14, 2017

The gate was open.

I could feel the gentle breeze beckoning me.

I heard the choir sing.

Were they birds or angels . . .

it mattered not.

The beauty of His grace at once

brought me rest and excited me!

I stepped inside . . .

HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 9, 2017

 

The house is quiet.

It is early morning

And the moon is handing the reins to the sun.

The illusion of darkness fades

As the breath of a new day

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.

LOOK BEYOND!

The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

THE EYES OF OUR HEARTS!

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
