please don’t fault me if i stutter, or don’t remember my lines,
i am at a time in life, when all is not so fine.
making fun of others does not cost a dime,
but it sets a trend for some humans to embrace,
to influence the minds of others,
instead, i ask for compassion and some grace.
so, if you will be patient and let God do his work,
and bid your time on earth, contributing thoughtful care,
as for me, i ask that you will say a simple prayer..
The above was written out of concern for the human race. We have lost sensitivity and lack of respect in so many ways. It should not matter that we don’t agree with others. It doesn’t mean we should name call or harm people. And my age is a contributing factor. I value life and think about how, our choices have consequences. Besides sowing kindness feels good.
from the sun
cannot make a difference
but there is a Son that can.
i got a letter the other day
i didn’t read it until today
sometimes i have to be
at the right place in my mind
to receive the words from
my friend so kind..
this one did it for me today
her words of kindness
had much to say..
from one whom
has had a hard life
but you wouldn’t know..
it brought tears to my eyes
because it was heaven sent.
positivity from my friend so kind
when i know in fact her world is not..
much to be glum about
but she is not.
reminding me to love
and be thankful for those that do..
to look for the good and for animals too
that are in our care on planet earth..
so a reminder to me
to not murmur nor complain..
be a light in this world
that seems as though
it is losing it’s glimmer
thank you friend for coming along
and sending me a lovely letter..
Return to Sender~
love bounces back
when it hits a wall
when not received
no not at all..
love has no barriers
but some hearts have walls
so love will bounce back
from the good intentions and all..
I wrote the following after reading some content on my phone, in regards to animal abuse. From that my mind wondered to other kinds of abuse in our world. But prior to all of that, the word good was stuck in my mind. Then my daily reading for today mentioned the word goodness, saying to always look for goodness and mercy.. Here is what followed.
look and you will find, that there is good, there is good all of the time-there are good people who live every day, who do good-and if you watch, and hear what they say- and see how they give and not take away- but willing to help those in need-not swollen with pride, or tempted with greed-not rebellious at heart, but live life to care-so never think that goodness is never there-for the truth is that good exists, and is around- but is often not noticed and is very quiet in sound…
I laugh at myself, as I have no river image.. But this is impromptu this morning, although this photo is not..
As I sat this morning, fighting waves of emotion and dealing with what I have heard and what I have not heard. Being suggested to me that I need to do more. So under the weight of sadness, I could break, but I choose to cling to what I know. After years of life’s lessons and life’s being in the pit of self and sin.. I choose life in Jesus. The Jesus, whom I met as a child, in a small white church. The Jesus on the flannel board, that I didn’t quite grasp it all, at that age. Neighbors had taken my sister and I to church, for how long, I don’t recall.. But in my little unknowing heart, I met Jesus, or rather He met me..
I was a quiet child, I liked to sing the songs. Since God planted in my frame a heart for dance and music, I was open to singing the songs that spoke messages of love. Still I am not sure what all I understood. I was young. So here I am today, in a state of mind of frantic and wanting to scream, but God, yes it’s God that brings comfort to my soul. How do I describe this.. how does one explain comfort from God, comfort from the Holy Spirit. It’s his peace, his presence, his still soft quiet voice that speaks and reminds me about His peace. The waves of emotion settle my heart and he will each and every time I cry out to Him… Peace be still my daughter, for I am with you, I am with those that you entrust me for their care.. I am so grateful to be in His presence. To have a personal relationship with Him. I know what it is to not have His peace, to be searching to find what would fill the void in my heart. It only led to much sorrow. And now, I am a new creation in Christ, and no one can tell me any other. I did not have anyone to reassure me at home of God’s love and protection, but He formed me in my mother’s womb. He had a plan and purpose for my life and it was good. He has had his eye on me all along…
He has His eye on you, my darling JADEY…
that cold sharp tone
makes my bones shiver
i know now
that a heart is changed
when one recognizes
does not have
all of the answers
God help us
We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind..
sky so blue
with an open heart
and eyes to see
i thank the good Lord..
for what he has done
for you and me..
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
