Got Heart

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.

Merry or Misery

mean, mocking, making fun of..

misery means misguided

macabre mentality

meant to malign

and manipulate

and create malicious

mouthy ranting

meanwhile

mature minded

meditate and

make merry

a message of

mindful motivation

meant to encourage morale

and not a mucky mess..

Maybe just a muddled moment.. lol! It’s become so very easy these days to pick apart people.. Yes, we do have a voice but does it need to be said in a spirit of meanness..

todays a new day

time to play with words

and dreams..

time for laughter

time to sing..

time to reach out and say hello

maybe to someone that you don’t know..

life is full of possibilities..

hope is constant and always there..

time to not be a fence sitter

time to not give up

time to not be a quitter..

Washed

that cold sharp tone

makes my bones shiver

i know now

that a heart is changed

when one recognizes

that self

does not have

all of the answers

in humility

traipsing

to

the

alter

to

lay

it

all

out

that

we be

washed

from the

filth

 of sin..

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..

Isaiah 64:6

 

new year

Happy New Year!

As I looked at this photo, my immediate thought was “Boundaries.”

more love and respect, is what we need, kinder and giving is good indeed, setting boundaries to protect human life and those in the wild. God help me this New Year to see with new eyes, to be a better human as the days of my life fly by. grant me wisdom in all that i do and to make a difference, aligned with your point of view..r gould

as a person thinketh

Rogue

a rogue tongue

not so fun..

being mean

what’s going on?

in you brain

and your heart

we are not all

the same..

we do all have

a beating heart

blood that runs

through our veins..

yours is not more precious

than mine

or any others..

as God is our maker

we were created by

his design..

and it was his plan

for all of us

to be kind..

1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth..
