Disturbing

img_0157-003captive thoughts

set them free

if they don’t make you feel better

they must flee

only occupiers of space

that control your mind

 makes you think

that all is fine

let the light of truth come in

and that’s when true freedom will begin..

Last night, before I went to bed, I read about some concerns in our community, regarding those, that have been seen abusing their dog in public. It was disturbing! I hate to think that anyone is abused, man, woman, child, baby, animal. From what I read it seemed that very little can be done when seeing someone kick their dog. What can be done? I would like the truth to this, please…Thank you!

I See a Short Story

DSC_0158-001a torrential rain came down from my eyes

i had fought the tears for so many years

not wanting to go back to that moment in time

leaving home, angry, frustrated and hurt

i felt freedom at last

 forgiving what i had considered unforgivable

loving the old man i was leaving

and looking forward to

when we would meet again..

Stuck

DSCN8412-001

After hearing a very good word on overcoming yesterday, it was clear to me, that I was stuck in an attitude that was only fueling thoughts of defeat. In a web of sorts in my mind. It was making me mentally tired. There is so very much negativity floating around, that we are bombarded with each day. If  we, (I) am not careful, it will consume us (me) in a subtle way. Proverbs 4:23 says, Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. NIV So today I encourage myself to be heart healthy..stop listening to the old worn out record. All it has done is created a deeper groove and playing the same old song of defeat and bondage. What I take in each day affects my thought life.  I choose life, that I may have it more abundantly…

Independence Day

 

A beginners attempt. I learned a few things from this. The sound may not be as loud as I would like it. Please enjoy! God Bless the United States Of America…

The Birds

DSC_0024-004come along and fly with me

we will travel far

for there’s much to see

mountains and streams

treetops to dream

it’s time to soar

like never before..

Skater-Boy

This brings back memories of my son’s skateboarding days. Where we lived they did not have access to nice paved streets. What stands out, were  their Van shoes, that would wear out and they would tape them with all-purpose ..Duct Tape..
