Empty words

can never compare to the symphony

of two hearts

joined in silence.

Conflicting Hearts

“What’s that racket?” you asked,

As I flung open the doors

To the sunroom.

All around me countless birds sang!

Feeling the warmth of an almost spring day,

I heard “too cold!”

Basking in the radiance

Of the morning sun streaming

From a cloudless sky,

I heard you closing the blinds

“too much glare!”

My smile faded a bit

As I knew we were together,

Yet in vastly different placed.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Isaiah 26:7-9

dad mom me

As a child my earthly father was always there loving me and when I cried out, he came quickly.  Now I am grown but my needs have grown as well so I often need to call out to Abba and He is always there when I do . . . and when I do not.  He knows my every need.

How amazing is that love?

“It has been a loooooooooooooong and hectic day.  

I will get to that outpouring of grace tomorrow!”

Seeking Purpose?

His Purpose

Kisses From God


Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better,

 happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”

I like this quote because it states something I have come to believe but in a different way. 

I believe that

God created flowers

solely for the purpose of making us smile, feel warm,

and know that we are loved. 

They represent God’s kisses to me.

When your heart smiles,

hope rises.
