The birds sing sweetly

while nearby dogs are barking.

Neither seem threatened . .

Fine feathered wisdom . . .

showing such abundant grace

I must learn their song!

THE CHOICE

March 3, 2019

The voice of change,

of peace,

of growth,

of renewal

comes in a whisper.

We must make the choice to listen.

WE DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY ENOUGH!

February 25, 2019

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’Matthew 22:37-39

AN UNEXPECTED GIFT!

February 11, 2019

When The Storm Passes . . .

The threat of a storm lasted long, but now that the storm is over it seems as though it was quite brief.  How often do we find this to be true?  After it has gone, the beauty in its wake seems brighter than ever before  . . .

Here are some photographs taken after other storms have gone.  It seems there is a message in their beauty.

 

29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
   the waves of the sea[a] were hushed.    – Psalm 107:29


A STONE’S THROW

February 11, 2019

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!

WHAT IS FAITH?

HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME

I am touched by the rays

Of a sun I cannot see.

Still, I am changed.

QUIET’S VOICE

I stepped into my quiet place,

My favorite retreat.

The leaves still whispered in the breeze.

The birds still sang softly in the trees.

I gaze up at the blue sky,

enjoying their music.

My soul rejoices.

For this is not a place for silence.

It is the place where my soul

Can truly hear!
