Saturdays Words

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

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..

 

 

 

poem

Tone it Down

could you, would you, please

tone it down

or turn it off

are you telling the world

this is what you’ve got?

profanity is not pleasing

to my ears

especially when

i consider

that children hear..

if you are thinking

that it will get my vote

i am sorry to tell you

it seriously will not..
