I SHALL DANCE FOREVER WITH YOU

September 20, 2016

 

Your sweet whispers heal my heart and soul

And turn the tempter’s shouts to silence.

My leaden feet now dance with pure joy,

For all my burdens are yoked

Together with you!

Keep Holding On

September 18, 2016

Hope in my pain . . .

It’s like sunshine in the rain.

I can’t see it.

I can’t feel it,

Yet I know its nearness

And that alone propels me.

I move forward

With You.

START THE DAY RIGHT!

August 6, 2016

When we are lost on the highway, we trust our GPS to take care of us. When our heart tells us we’re lost, don’t we have far better direction to take? What do we gain from being stubborn?

You hold hands with me

the breeze of a new morning

reminds me of hope

THE JOYFUL JOURNEY

July 22, 2016

 

watered trees

It was a beautiful day

When we began

But that was long ago.

I didn’t expect time to pass so slowly,

Nor the path to be so rocky

Or so steep.

I noticed though,

As I lay resting,

How sweet the grass and flowers smelled.

Such colors!

I never really noticed their beauty before.

So many varieties of flowers!

The sounds!

As I try to rush I miss them,

But at rest I hear the trickling of a stream

And the calls of wild things!

So vast a symphony,

I cannot name them all!

I love my journey with Him!

He calms my fear,’Guides and guards me!

My greatest joy?

Sitting close by the fire

And just listening

And being!

The sky is deep blue

and punctuated with clouds.

My silver lined soul!
