Nestled close to you

In the shelter of your wings

I finally know

The true meaning of freedom!

my other office

A lack luster morning

Holding me back

From being all I can be

And doing all I can do

Instantly made better by throwing open the drapes

And letting in the Son!

gloomy day

Stepping through the door

into my dark screened porch

I hungered for a beautiful day

I could not see.

So, I closed my eyes

And felt your breath

In the cool breeze

As I drank my fill

Of your living water.

I knew your love spoken to my heart

Through every bird that sang

Rain or shine!

Gloomy day . . .

steady rain . . .

That was yesterday.

Awakening to puddles this morning

I looked beyond and found something more!

If not for the showers,

where would be the flowers?

What God Sees

March 17, 2015

This flower was not like

all that surrounded it.



form . . .

no comparison.

Still it blooms with such beauty

and does not second guess itself.

Young Love

March 17, 2015

When I was a little girl

love was  sweet and simple.

Fancy gifts were not needed.

I only needed to whisper your name

or listen as you whispered mine

to know our love was forever.

Nothing has really changed.
