IT’S NEVER ME!

August 10, 2019

Why is the shepherd running ahead?

Does He not care?

Where are my caring friends?

Again,

nobody wants me!

“My child.

I Am ahead of you preparing the way!”

They quietly discussed His purpose,

though the child wondered.

Hearing and seeing many behind the two,

she asked the Lord

“What are they doing?”

“My child, they are fasting while providing prayer support!”

She knelt at His feet.

MORE THAN ENOUGH

I pray and I pray

“Lord, give me strength!”

All He did

with His love.

Thank you!

PATH IN THE WOODS


WE ARE FAMILY!

April 22, 2019

Scrappy and I had lunch in our screened porch amid birds singing, a gentle breeze, blue skies viewed between leaf filled branches and the wonderful sound I love to hear – the sound of a saw cuttng wood! The sound and smell is life giving to me and perfume to my soul! Daddy was so skilled at EVERYTHING since if he didn’t know, he self-taught and worked with perfection. Sadly the last 15 years of his life were spent sedentary due to Parkinsons. Lord, heal me and or show me the way to shine and to make my parents proud for the 3 of us!  We love you and hunger to serve with the treasure you bestowed!

I HUNGER FOR THE MUSIC

April 18, 2019

I awakened early,

and all seemed still asleep.

A cup of tea,

a wicker chair,

a sunporch just for me. . .

but I was not alone,

you, too, were there.

I hungered for your music,

heard when we’re alone.

You never disappoint!

I sipped and listened to the gentle breeze

the creaking of the porch door,

the singing of a bird high in the tree.

Soon I heard the tinkling of tiny tear drops

of moving water in the rivulet nearby

and they mirrored myown

tears of thankfulness and joy.

Soon the day would grow busy

and the gentle sounds of your gifts,

your voice,

would be lost in the confusion

and distress.

But in the din I will close my eyes

for just a moment

so that once more

I can hear your music.

It is well.

THINK ABOUT IT

April 13, 2019

Read …Recite …Relationship

Pray,

It should mean something.

It does, doesn’t it?

When we’re finished, we sing and leave!

But . . .

I don’t need to read the book,

I can easily recite.

That counts, right?

Even if I forget the words?

Does it mean something?

How will He know what I said

if I don’t . . .

I’d rather have

A relationship with Him

using my own words

from my heart.

It matters to me

and to Him.
