LIKE THE MOTHER BIRD

October 17, 2018

Just as a mother bird broods 

to protect her young . . .

giving them warmth,

safety,

covered with her love,

and when the time comes

sets them free

to do as they were created to do . . .

so, too, does our Creator God

love and protect us

in the shelter of His wings.

We may not see Him,

but His love, power, and grace

are with us always.

TAKE A CHANCE ON LOVE!

HIS WILL


BUT WE ARE SAVED – SOAR!

April 17, 2017

The sad little bird,

caged for so long,

hopelessly yearned to fly.

One day,

the cage door was open!

But still he stayed inside,

not knowing what it was

to be free!

I Love Rumi – A Quote For Tuesday

October 2, 2012

Oh, this one just makes my jaw drop, lifts weight from my shoulders, and makes my soul dance ALL AT ONCE.  What must the neighbors be thinking?  lol  I hope it catches your soul as well!

“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”  – Rumi


Rebirth

September 1, 2012

The puddles are still near

though the flood waters have receded.

Yet, I am blissfully unaware.

The splendor of your love

so shines in my heart

and lifts my soul

that I am blinded to all else.

I see only blue skies

lit with sun so radiant

that like the birds of the air,

I soar to new heights,

all the while singing your praise.

The storm has passed

and the memory of it has gone;

leaving, in its wake

a new day,

a new life,

a new spirit within me.

I am rested.

I am reborn.

I am free.
