REFLECTED BLESSINGS!

June 28, 2017

We cannot have shadows in the darkness.

So, if you see one on a rainy day,

and you cannot find the sun,

that sunny brightness

MUST be reflected from you!

You are blessed!

Be a blessing to others!

DADDY’S LOVE – ABBA’S SERVANT

June 13, 2017

 

Tapers on the sofa table

Gently lit the room

For it was night.

 

While mother slept,

Father and I enjoyed the gentle candle light

And stories from another time and place.

 

We needed no warmth

From those candles, though.

That came from father’s heart.

 

He knew I’d be waiing.

I knew he’d come.

Sleep didn’t come easily to him.

 

We spent hours together

He shared so many stories

Oa life as a boy,family,the farm…

 

Tales of many generations

Retold in the gently lit room

Well into the night.

 

Tears come as I share this

But not of sadness,

All of joy!

 

As we retired for the night,

I waited for his sounds of sleep

Before taking to my bed.

 

He is gone now,

But my memories still bring

Love, peace, and rest!

SHARE YOUR HEART

March 20, 2017

 

 

Joy was a snowflake

Caught in my hand.

Alas,

I held it too close

And it melted.

Joy was a daisy

I picked in the morn.

Tucked in my pocket,

Its petals were lost.

Joy was a smile

You placed in my heart.

I shared it with a friend.

Its warmth glows on!

Hope Rises

February 24, 2017

 My bread dough rises like the sun

In a cold unleavened sky.

My heart is warmed,

My hands reaching out

To prepare the loaf it will become,

To bake,

To break,

To share.

ALL THAT GLITTERS . . .

February 20, 2017

All that glitters

can be dispersed with the wind

or carried off by a Spring breeze!

Let’s be sure to put on a fresh smile

and a thankful heart

each new day!

The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.
