Blessed and Refreshed

In the earliest moments of morning

While traffic outside is quiet,

The family sleeps,

The dog is still . . .

My stress disappears . . .

It’s just you and me.

I have all I need

And more!

A Knowing

Ah,

that delicious moment

when you don’t know how it’ll happen

and have no idea how things will play out

as you realize you can do nothing about it

yet

you know who does

and your soul is filled with peace!

YOU RAISE ME UP

May 19, 2018

Finding Love

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

NATURE’S VOICE

Tears of Joy

I sit at the water’s edge

hearing the music of the droplets

tumbling over the rocks at the shore . . .

sounds of strength and hope.

Such beauty

in a faded lily

still smiling in the sun!

You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame

BETTY’S HEART

November 7, 2017

betty carol

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? 

Leviticus 19:18

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
