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…

Forlorn

DSCN8416her world

has been turned

upside down

enthusiasm

for running

outside

has waned

no longer eager

to explore,

for four dogs

have moved

in next door

although confined

daily

to a small space

in their world

they wait

hours

to be free

to roam

in their

backyard

which is their home

and she our cat

seems to care

that her own

freedom

is not there

so she looks

forlorn to me

her world turned

upside down

is what she sees.

Pondering

This is where a lot of our decision-making takes place. On our front porch, on this bench. From here we have watched the Chickadee family build their nest, feed their young and then move on. Watch butterflies play tag with the wind and the flowers in our garden patch, bloom before our eyes. This seat is very important and serious business takes place here. We ponder now and are contemplating change and my heart leaps at the thought and consideration..Hmmm! We will figure it out right here on our front porch.
