BY FAITH ALONE

April 22, 2017

Despite their fragility,

in body and on branch,

the birds sang on

in delicate harmony.

Thunder and lightening,

driving wind and rain

did not change their spirit!

We have much to learn from them!

MORNING GLORY

April 21, 2017

 

Today is nothing special . . .

I have no particular plan.

I woke up feeling joyful

Just because I can.

 

Some will find this rather odd.

I feel sorry for them.

But as for me, I’m praising God!

Glory without end!

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

BUT WE ARE SAVED – SOAR!

April 17, 2017

The sad little bird,

caged for so long,

hopelessly yearned to fly.

One day,

the cage door was open!

But still he stayed inside,

not knowing what it was

to be free!

Sprung! – A Haiku

Frosted palm  branches

Spring giggles excitedly

winter’s slow retreat

. . . AND YOU WERE THERE

March 23, 2017

I needed to be near you . . .

I chose this cathedral . . .

I heard the choir sing . . .

Your presence was unmistakable . . .
