A building is not just a place to be but a way to be.

MY SOUL RESTORED

August 23, 2016

Your whispers

In our quiet place

Are a symphony.

A NEW MORNING


Refilled and Restored

August 8, 2013

marriage

It was late.

I was tired.

All was quiet.

I needed to hear your voice

And before I could express my need

You were there

Loving me.

Thank you.

Welcome – A Tanka For the New Season

April 4, 2013

Natural Beauty 

Resting in the rain

And washed in His endless love

soothes body and soul.

Restored, renewed, and prepared

For the coming season’s change.

Droplets of water

Falling, falling, from the sky

You nourish dry ground

and provide restoration!

New life, new hope – praise, rejoice!

Restoration – A Tanka Poem

August 10, 2012

Restoration

 

Loud, angry voices

so often mere steps away

unjust, unwelcome . . .

Your love quietly rains down.

My wounded soul is lifted.

 

Help them see the rose

nestled there among the thorns.

Loves sweet aroma . . .

among makings of a crown

unworthy for my precious King.

 

Let me know your love.

Give to me a thankful heart,

filled with compassion.

Joy found among the wreckage . . .

unexpected beauty found!
