AUTHENTICITY

April 20, 2018

To repeat another’s words

rather than my own

is the same

as wearing a borrowed hat,

or chasing someone else’s dream.

In order to change the world

for the better

I must be authentic

to do my part.

I am a unique creation of the Most High!

His plan .. . His gifts . . .are best.

You Choose!

IN THIS LIFE . . .

Are we on a quest to DO what is right,

or to always BE right?

These two are rarely synonymous

and one is HOPELESSLY inefficient!

HIS CARESS

Is it just the breeze

Or the brush of angel’s wings

Which refresh my soul

And bring me such peace?

UTTER FOLLY

A snippet you say?

UTTER FOLLY say I!

“One of insignificance!”

NEVER was such created

in His kingdom

on either side of the veil!

UNRAVELLED

November 27, 2017

 

 

We begin life finely knit together,

One to another,

No labels,

Many colors,

Plump or delicate,

Uniquely different yet all the same

In likeness to Him.

Sadly,

We mature and our eyes,

Those human orbs,

Deny the truth held in our hearts.

BETTY’S HEART

November 7, 2017

betty carol

There are really none like my late friend Betty, pictured here on the right with her Mom on the left.  Her heart?  Prime example!  THE MOUSE!  If I met one in my house we are sure to find I freaked out and left town until it met its demise!  Not Betty!  She found one in the attic,thought it was SOOOOO cute,and fixed up a hamster cage for it.  It became family!

With a loving heart like that, can you imagine what a blessing she was to humans? 

Leviticus 19:18

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.


HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

August 30, 2017

Tiny feet

Scampering about,

Carry a wee one

Full of promise!

From such as this

Once was born

A Savior!
