When the sun rises, so do I

colors blaze across the sky- when the sun rises, so do i a fresh new day  another try when the sun rises  so do i ocean crashes seagulls fly  when the sun rises so do i I climb the stairs with a pensive sigh when the sun rises so do i This past weekend we […]

Hope

I am not really one who likes to talk about politics. Not at all. I definitely have my own thoughts and opinions about things but I do my best to try to look at situations with an unbiased view. I happened to watch the news the other day, and I was heartbroken.  Heartbroken at how […]

hands

Do you ever wonder  if God has hands? And how He formed the face of this beautiful land? How He carved the mountains and the valley below? Did He hand-pick every green thing and tell them all to grow? Do you ever wonder? Do you ever wonder if God has hands? Let the favor of the […]

hurry up and  wait-  what’s the rush?  lay down a while  and feel the lush  fresh dewy grass  beneath my feet  a  morning’s walk  nearly complete perched under a kelly-green foliage canopy that’s where you’ll  be finding me!  I remain confident of this:     I will see the goodness of the Lord     in the land of […]

Help Us Accept Each Other (a hymn remake)

He holds the sky

He formed the clouds within His hand  He holds the sky and sea  The very hand that holds the world- it cradles you and me  And when the distant storm clouds bring  the threat of thunder and rain In the shelter of His mighty wings we can find peace  once again  He who dwells in […]

I almost missed it

lost in wonder we sat under  a tree- pensively waiting thoughtfully gazing  we were both praising  the Lord- and anticipating the silent display  a heavenly array  we beheld a glorious sight  while the world kept on spinning  the two of us grinning-   we watched Him turn day into night  One evening last week, I […]
