When I stand alone

I cannot hear the music

but when instead I hold your hand

the lyrical voices of freedom, hope, love and peace

make my heart soar!

TOO HEAVY

May 24, 2017

We have been commanded to love our enemies.

When we refuse to pray for them,

we are holding hate in our hearts.

LET IT GO.

Give it to GOD!

Be free!

DE COLORES

. . . because life was not meant to be just black and white!

 Our individuality was meant for blessing, not distressing!

ROBBERY

January 27, 2017

I need to restore my peace and joy

and so must filter out

all whichkeeps stealing it,

at least for a time.

I look to the left without success,

to the right is no better.

I look up

and there is my source and compass. . .

strength for the journey.

MIRROR OF SINCERITY

November 3, 2016

We say we are sincere, but are we?

True sincerity, like the mirror on the wall, speaks non-verbally.

We communicate it heart to heart!

UNITED YET UNIQUE

Sunshine

And shadows . . .

So different,

Yet alike.

They share the same story

From the other side.

Division Versus Unity – Daily Prompt: Ready, Set, Go!

January 24, 2013

Seems to be – especially lately – that where ever I turn I hear angry voices and see fingers pointed.  I hear of daily reports of shootings somewhere in the nation, of new strife somewhere in the world, but also of this happening right in our own homes, schools, shopping malls, and churches.  Everyone seems to state a desire for “change” but like a game of “rock, paper, scissors,” it seems everyone wants to win. 

When are we going to learn to stop, to listen, to negotiate, to care?

So many amazing things have been accomplished in our world and in our backyards.  How?  Because someone was not afraid to be the one to stop, to think, to listen, and to begin anew.  Someone has to be the pioneer of change.  Are we so fearful, so selfish, so blind, and so full of conceit that we’d rather shoot or be shot than admit that this isn’t working?  Do we have eyes that see?  Do we have ears that hear?  Do we have hearts anymore?

Division = Death  . . . Unity = New Life . . . Make a Choice!

Quote of the Day – Unity

January 12, 2013

Galatians 3:26-28

“26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27 for

all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed

yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek,

slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all

one in Christ Jesus.”

Do we really believe this? Is it what we reflect to the world? Can it be seen when we think nobody’s looking?
