The REAL Joy

April 29, 2016

reflecting on the crossI enjoy the applause.

Admiration is nice for a time

but,

my lasting joy

is reflecting the Lord in all I AM and do.

I am nothing without His love.

At The Crossroads

April 27, 2016

decision

With my heart pounding

I face the dark passageway

And must make a choice . . .

Shall I retreat filled with dread

Or seek opportunity?

I shall

follow you

one step at a time.

MASK SMASHING

April 27, 2016

We often choose to live behind a mask

in our effort to reduce the pain.

All  this really does  though

is push away the Sun

from our hungry heart and soul.

Reconsider!

Ah, morning breezes

leaves sway to your melody

sunrays dance along

PATH IN THE WOODS


DETOUR

April 26, 2016

Traveling in an unfamiliar place,

now I reach a crossroads!

I sigh in disgust and make a choice.

A pretty path to nowhere . ..

until a detour quickly brought me

to You!

ANSWER THE CALL

April 25, 2016

The beauty of poetry is that it can touch the hearts of each reader individually with the picture it paints and thus seeds are planted where winds may have blown them away. – Martha L Shaw

I AM Yours

April 25, 2016

You whisper my name

Your powerful love is heard

Known above all else
