Praising God for theGift of a New Day

July 14, 2019

sunny day

 

It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!

Surrender

YES! I FOLLOWED!

Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?

HOW MUCH HE LOVES!

July 1, 2019

It saddens me that some feel there is no God.  If only they knew how much He loved them.   My friend Betty had a heart of gold.  She is with the Lord now but I lovingly think of her often.  I recall a night when we were young and it was a Saturday night.  We hungered for our favorite ice cream shop.  Leaving for home, we spied a tiny broken wimged bird by the door.  Betty picked it up and exclaimed “it’s alive!”  She then handed it to me as I wondered if my hands or the tiny bird shook more!  lol  We drove all over trying to find a pet clinic and succeeded.  I still wonder if they repaired the wing.  Betty knows the answer.

A NEW MORNING


WHISPERS SPEAK LOUDER

June 24, 2019

You walk beside me

and hold my hand.

I STUMBLE AND FRET

WONDERING . . .

“WHERE ARE YOU?”

I pray,

knowing you love me.

My fear shouts.

Despite the heat,

I shiver . . .

I feel alone.

The voices of my loneliness

are so loud that panic sets in.

I jump!

“What WAS that?”

and see the bird.

They are so beautiful that I stop  . . .

softly,

sweetly,

the birds upstage my fear

and I know your presence.

Foolishly,

I forgot your promises,

your love.

I knelt beneath the tree

and wept.

I called, needing your nearness

and realized you were always there.

Your love lifted me up

AS ALWAYS.

HE LEADS – I FOLLOW – IT IS GOOD

June 21, 2019

Thunderous applause

reaches me from above.

Some call it a storm

but I call it joy

Hidden wonders yet to come!
