FOREVER LOVE

November 10, 2018

It always seems so difficult

to have lost the ones you love

even though we know that they

are pain free up above.

But oh the happy memories

that come back with a start!

For I know that they are nearest

When I look inside my heart.

DON’T HATE MONDAY!

August 27, 2018

Tee shirt vendors got it wrong!  God gave us a new day . . . let’s be hopeful . . . thankful even!  Attitude matters!

I awakened to a quiet house.

It was very early

and the only noise was

the soft sound of my dog asleep nearby.

Sensing my gaze,

she stumbled out of bed and followed me.

I sit sipping my first cup of coffee

and breathe in the peaceful soft sounds of the new day.

I don’t know what the day brings

but I know who brought it.

That is sufficient.

BE A BELIEVER!

August 26, 2018

We are human!  We fall short, we grow impatient, we begin to consider “what if . . .”  Take it to the Lordand be washed in His grace and know His amazing love!

Hope NOT Misspent

 

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

A JOYFUL SERVANT

August 20, 2018

Sometimes . . .

You have to listen really closely

To hear the music in the silence.

But, once you hear it,

Your heart will never forget its voice.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE

August 20, 2018

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.

AT HOME IN YOUR ARMS

August 10, 2018

Come!

I tremble.

You hold me close.

I sigh.

I rest.

The Search

August 8, 2018

Looking for a hallelujah,

At first so hard to find.

I found it when I looked inside

My heart and not my mind.
