Saturday Humor

there’s a light at the end of the tunnel

i’ve been clearing the clutter away

it’s been such a painful experience

because the clutter wants to stay..

but this disease has got to go

it has been with me far too long

so it is time for clutter bug and i

to find something new to do

i already feel the freedom

and seeing a little light

as i say goodbye to clutter bug

because i want clutter out of my sight..

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…

The Heart of A Poet

DSC_0431

Beside my cottage door it grows,

The loveliest, daintiest flower that blows,

A sweet briar rose.

At dewy mourn or twilight’s close,

The rarest perfume from it flows,

This strange wild rose.

But when the rain-drops on it beat,

Ah, then, its odors grow more sweet,

About my feet.

Offtimes with loving tenderness,

Its soft green leaves I gently press,

In sweet caress.

A still more wondrous fragrance flows

The more my fingers close

And crush the rose.

Dear Lord, oh, let my life be so

Its perfume when tempests blow,

The sweeter flow.

And should it be Thy blessed will,

With crushing grief my soul to fill,

Press harder still.

And while its dying fragrance flows

I’ll whisper low, He loves me and knows

His crushed briar rose.

Sweaters in Waiting

DSCN1451DSCN1452DSCN1454DSCN1456

I consider going to  a fabric store to be on my top ten to do list. I love how  the warmth of  the different kinds of fabric, the yarn and all of the notions call out to me. It all kind of gets my creative juices flowing to want to tap in to different creative endeavors. In my quiet time I have been thinking a lot about our first years experience here in Oregon. I appreciate the vastness of the forest, the many bodies of water, the green fields, the rustic barns and the animals. There are areas that I need divine intervention and it’s in God’s presence that I find what I need.. His direction, His comfort, His wisdom and much more. The word reluctant came to me this morning. In my years I have been reluctant to do a lot of things. Mainly out of fear of failure. So it was like, why even bother trying. So from this Hen, don’t be reluctant. Don’t let the years of your youth and life in general slip away as you sit on the fence. Hop off! I wrote a short poem on this a few years ago and will have to locate it. Don’t wait, don’t hesitate, just do it…And make that sweater…lol! The store I visited is called the Stitchin’ Post  in Sisters, Oregon. I will share some tales about this fantastic place in another post…

gratitude week: day seven

DSCN0247-007on this day of rest

i am grateful

for introspection

a time to look

within

and search

for what may be amiss

as i reflect on

experiences

in life

recent and past

thankful for all

even the hard lessons

not so easy

but have helped to form

who i am..

memories of a baby boy

born to me this day

thank you young man..

for the privilege

of being your mother

for family and friends

reminders of growth

for the sweet transparent

and grateful

hearts

that shared this week

thank you..

to all that read and follow

thank you!

for life that pleases

but always enough unease

to  keep me looking

up

lifting  praise

and thanksgiving

 from my quiet corner of the world..
