Among Weeds and Thorns

January 10, 2018

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

DID I MISS SOMETHING?

December 21, 2017

It is NOT miraculous

that God loves us.

The miracle is our realization of His love

and our eagerness

to return and to share it!

THIS IS HE!

Recieving three gifts,

born in meager surroundings,

came our infant King!

THE GIFT

December 15, 2017

Finally sunshine!

I step out into the cold and see

a rose withstood the frost!

His Garden

December 14, 2017

The gate was open.

I could feel the gentle breeze beckoning me.

I heard the choir sing.

Were they birds or angels . . .

it mattered not.

The beauty of His grace at once

brought me rest and excited me!

I stepped inside . . .

HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 9, 2017

 

The house is quiet.

It is early morning

And the moon is handing the reins to the sun.

The illusion of darkness fades

As the breath of a new day

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.

HEAR THE MUSIC?

November 8, 2017

My body may be broken,

But my heart and soul

Are still dancing.

I am my heart and soul!

This I share with the universe . . .
