kk_febtrio11-001life takes a toll

on all that we know

life is not funny

some days are not sunny

there are lessons to learn

tears that are shed

from turbulent times

we may fear

or dread

from the unknown

of what’s ahead..

but as i gaze

on the face of this flower

it reminds to stand strong

at this time and hour

it’s time to reflect

and not neglect

to look inside my heart

that peace of mind

is what i will find

when i commit

to pray…

      Thank you Linda! I purchased two small sunflower plants months ago. One is now tall and gangly about seven or eight feet with one flower and the other about six foot tall with several flowers. I have been watching and waiting to see them bloom…

    I saw this today on a church bulletin board and I’ve been wanting to share it. I got some life changing news today, and it was just after seeing this. I hope it makes you feel good too: Fear knocked. Faith answered.
    Lovely post, Roberta.
