AS SUMMER VACATIONS BECOME MEMORIES …

August 18, 2017

Lord, you offer us

a foretaste of heaven

as we stumble through this world.

Let us taste its sweetness today

as we walk

side by side with you.

I KEPT LOOKING

August 17, 2017

Strolling alone

on a shady and unpaved road

is VERY hard on these weak legs,

still,

I always liked to walk with Him.

Wish He was here now.

Just Him here would bring rest

to my weary heart.

Wish I could do all I used to do . . .

but my soul is young though my body not so much.

Maybe HE could still . . .

I stood a  moment,

gathered my thoughts,

and felt His hand squeeze mine!

In my distraction,

I didn’t notice He was there all along waiting and loving me!

So easy to set aside worries in daylight, but those pests do torment at night. I’ve taken to prayer in their midst, but when they shout too loud I seek Christian broadcasting, and rest in it, and the Lord has led me each night this week to the perfect verse to touch my heart and soul and assure me “I AM” Here’s last night’s – a favorite!

If the rose

Knew only its thorns

Would it still be sweet?

Old Books . . . Old Friends

For lots of reasons, I find myself reading most books these days by ereader, yet still I adore old books and stores which feature them!  I love the sight, smell and feel of them, but there is something more!  I hear the voices of each soul who held, read, and loved the book before me.  Old books, old friends!

The tattered pages

Speak of those who’ve gone before

Can you hear the whispers?

My Birthright

I live in hope of the Light,

Therefore, it is mine.

The illusion of darkness

Is no more!

DANCING IN THE REIGN

August 1, 2017

I heard

the applause of many angels

reign down on a dance floor

glowing

with the stars in gentlemen’s eyes

as the ladies danced in satin gowns

and their best diamonds!

No other light was needed.
