Kingtides

On Saturday morning, we drove to the coast, knowing about the activity, that was to take place for a few days. For this moment, I am only posting this one photo. My heart is heavy, for those swept out to sea, on that day. Out of respect for them I am praying for those that have lost loved ones.

i think of you

not necessary

what i know

only that

you are loved

and on

a golden shore above..

Fifties School Days

Image (21)

It’s that time of year, when I am thinking about and praying for children that are starting their school year. My, how things have changed. Did we not look like wholesome kids..lol! Well, I am sure there were some little rascals in that class.

 Image (26)I loved the dresses during that time. Jump rope, trading cards, jacks, foursquare and monkey bars were my recess favorites, along with hopscotch. Tuna sandwiches rocked, especially if accompanied with Fritos. Oh such memories..

Father, I pray for blessing upon all children. I pray for safekeeping, and teacher’s that inspire and that are committed to seeing that each child flourish and have a successful school year. Father, just as your eye is on the sparrow, you know each child by name. You know the number of strands of hair on each head. Thank you, that you are a loving and caring God and wanting good for all. In Jesus name I pray.. Amen!

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..

Sunday Soul Search

O Lord, You have searched me and known me.

You know my sitting down and my rising up;

You understand my thought afar off.

You comprehend my path and my laying down,

And are acquainted with all of my ways.

For there is not a word on my tongue,

But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether..

                                  Psalm 139:1-4

Played a Song for Me

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..

Thank you for playing a song for me…
