BY FAITH ALONE

April 22, 2017

Despite their fragility,

in body and on branch,

the birds sang on

in delicate harmony.

Thunder and lightening,

driving wind and rain

did not change their spirit!

We have much to learn from them!

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

INSTINCT

March 15, 2017

In my heart and thus my life,

love is an instinct.

I was created by Love,

in the image of Love,

in love,

through love,

to love.

Many failures may befall me,

but,

Love never fails!

New Living Translation
Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!

 

 


OUT OF THIS WORLD – Home Redefined

March 13, 2017

My home is the sun shining down on me

And filling my soul

With light.

My home is a song,

An echo from heaven

Which gives my spirit wings.

My home has neither roof nor walls.

It is your hand holding me close.

I sing.

I smile.

I soar.

Come . . .

March 11, 2017

I was in our special place.

I needed to ask . . .

but did not see you.

I called out,

sensing your nearness.waiting

There you were.

“Here,  my child,

I’ve been waiting”

The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

SHINE LIKE THE SON

November 17, 2016

SHINE

sunrise

As the sun rose

Its warming rays touched my

Night cooled flesh

With the thrill of a new day!
