summer mood

DSCN8186-001

summer mood

a bit subdued

heavy heart

from fires that start

loss of life

and loss of home

exhausted bodies

people bemoan

and question why

God bring comfort

and please

 rain down on them..

Played a Song for Me

 

IMG_7450

in conversation

i found out

he is musically inclined

this man child

of parents

perhaps someone’s

brother

i don’t know

but not necessarily meant

for me to know

but what i do

with what i see

i see much more

than what

a picture can portray

easy to see surface stuff

i see a need

for caring, for compassion

for kindness

and going the extra mile

and offering up some prayer

from someone

that is a mother..

yes, i do know their names.. when i see this dog, my heart melts

Thank you for playing a song for me…

Spontaneous

round and round

the world we go

losing sight of what we know

spinning fast

out of control

delving in darkness

that masters the soul…

Lord, help us

help us quick

free us from what

makes us sick..

love will turn this world around

compassion and kindness

can make us sound…

words

Temporary

DSCN4388

the earth explodes

with the beauty of nature

and color

it whispers

calm

and

peace

for those with

ears to hear

in the movement

of lives

that live

to love

and respect

what has been given

as temporary human

caretakers

not to abuse

nor misuse

but simply

as sojourning

peacemakers

sowing kindness

wherever we go..

Hear my prayer O Lord

and give ear to my cry;

hold not your peace at my tears

For I am a sojourner with you

a guest, like all my fathers.

                 Psalm 39:12

The Luxury of Water

DSCN7536Daily Gratitude

The Message

Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Matthew 10:42

RSV

And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
