WHAT DOES YOUR HEART SEE?

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?

AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

August 6, 2018

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass gazed heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

The Awakening

June 7, 2018

Our earthly life can be frustrating

and our human weakness

is like a blindfold

keeping us from realizing the beauty,

the miracles,

and God’s loving hand

guiding and protectig us always.

THANKS Y’ALL

July 1, 2017

As we enjoy the next few days as AMERICANS, let us lay aside our political ugliness, and instead ponder all we are thankful for and all who contributed in any way toward these many blessings, the troops, and families and friends at home and especially those who died for our freedom!

 

HAPPY AND BLESSED 4TH OF JULY!


ALWAYS GIVE THANKS!

For the Light costumed by darkness,

I thank you, Lord.

For the beauty I know but cannot see,

I thank you, Lord.

For the music I cannot hear yet still I dance

And thank you, Lord.

For your secret healing of my every need,

I thank you, Lord.

For living in this broken human’s heart,

I thank you, Lord.

For using me anyway,

All my love and thanks and praise to you.

Amen

GROWING AND GLOWING

June 7, 2017

Days of raindrops

Tinkling like fingers on piano keys

As birds hover beneath a leafy umbrella

Singing along.

Some called it a gloomy day

But I am blessed.

The dust of yesterday is gone

As a new season

Is freshly polished

For tomorrow!
