The following quote may be true for some but not for me! Seeing and hearing and feeling the world as a poet is,for me, a HUGE blessing. FELLOW POETS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
the toughest job
in the universe-
of turning silence

There are really none like my late friend Betty, pictured here on the right with her Mom on the left. Her heart? Prime example! THE MOUSE! If I met one in my house we are sure to find I freaked out and left town until it met its demise! Not Betty! She found one in the attic,thought it was SOOOOO cute,and fixed up a hamster cage for it. It became family!
With a loving heart like that, can you imagine what a blessing she was to humans?
18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

When I was a child I never hesitated to run to my Daddy when I needed him, whether I had skinned my knee,was scared by a bug,you name it. I never stopped to wonder if I was a good enough girl, was my problem big enough … I knew his love was more than big enough no matter what I did or didn’t do. GOD WANTS US TO RUN INTO HIS ARMS THAT SAME WAY!

on a shady and unpaved road
is VERY hard on these weak legs,
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!
11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer 29:11

The troubles in life are not the struggles themselves. They are the false notion of separation we feel. The Lord recently reminded me that nothing can separate me from His love. NOTHING. Romans 8:38 – Martha L Shaw
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, Romans 8:38
