born to fly

You can’t keep a butterfly  down born to fly-  won’t stay  on the ground  flitting and floating  you’d think it was gloating that her post-cocoon freedom  was found!  “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest”-  Psalm 55:6 My girls went back to school this past week. […]

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 […]

before the sun sets

Before the sun sets  waiting for the afterglow  watching for nightfall  mountains like oceans  undulating clouds like waves  a twilight delight  playing hide and seek  sunlight slips behind slivers  of silver lined clouds  50 shades of blue  the Blue Ridge Mountains aglow  sun sings her swan song  not a single sound  not a plane nor […]
