FOOLISH HUMANS!

July 10, 2019

If I was passed a glass of poison to drink, I would destroy it – not drink it.  God would urge me to.  He loves me.

Oh, the hug He gives!

Why then, when anxiety plagues me in so many painful ways, do I hold onto it and make myself sick?  Lose my joy?  Perhaps cause others to follow this wrong path with me?

Turn to Him, ask for help, turn it over!

 

DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP!

Surrender

YES! I FOLLOWED!

Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?

HOW MUCH HE LOVES!

July 1, 2019

It saddens me that some feel there is no God.  If only they knew how much He loved them.   My friend Betty had a heart of gold.  She is with the Lord now but I lovingly think of her often.  I recall a night when we were young and it was a Saturday night.  We hungered for our favorite ice cream shop.  Leaving for home, we spied a tiny broken wimged bird by the door.  Betty picked it up and exclaimed “it’s alive!”  She then handed it to me as I wondered if my hands or the tiny bird shook more!  lol  We drove all over trying to find a pet clinic and succeeded.  I still wonder if they repaired the wing.  Betty knows the answer.

HE LEADS – I FOLLOW – IT IS GOOD

Thunderous applause

reaches me from above.

Some call it a storm

but I call it joy

Hidden wonders yet to come!

Branch Out!

June 11, 2019

If a tree were to resist

shedding her colorful autumn leaves,

when would come spring?

When would come summer?

If we resist change

we cannot question why

we do not grow.

Do not choose death – choose life!

LOVE STORY

June 3, 2019

The story with no ending

and chapters I hunger to forget.

My soul stirs in wonder . . .

Could this be the day?

Trust comes hard for me.

But I need it for it holds the map!

Finally I study it and gasp!

In big letters, You wrote to me!

“Fear not!

I am with you!”
