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!

Blessed By Indifference

Warm thoughts

on a frigid day

do not raise the temperature.

But instead,

make me indifferent to it!

A STONE’S THROW

February 18, 2017

 

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!

HEART SPEAK

February 18, 2017

 

Love is not a word to translate

But rather the joining of two hearts,

Two souls as one.

It transcends all differences,

For they become blessings.

If we believe in Love,

We change the world

One heart at a time!

SEEK, SMILE, GIVE THANKS

February 16, 2017

 

I awakened to clouds

Hindering the sunshine

From lifting my spirits

As I approached the new day.

Stretching,

I sipped morning tea

In my quiet place

Saying nothing.

I heard only

The soft restful breaths

From my pup

Who snuggled close to me

And feared nothing.

I found my heart

And soul awakening finally

Then a bit of morning light

Caught my eye

As a bird called out

To her hungry wee ones.

A duet of fluttering wings

Met fluttering leaves

And the last of the raindrops

Rippled on the ground.

There is always beauty to be found.

New days meet new opportunities.

To find, we must

Seek, smile, and give thanks!

I did.

BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY

February 1, 2017

Around The Corner

The path,

this sacred journey,

is filled with sharp turns .. .

corners around which we cannot see,

but oh, the beauty He has placed there

just waiting for us!

Keep moving forward

with Him!

SIMPLY BLESSED

January 25, 2017

Seeking answers,

seeing none,

I look to the left

and look to the right.

My feet are still leaden.

I hear a bird call

and glancing up,

I understand.
