Taste of Spring

Taste of Spring

Breathe in, drink your fill of sweet air. Draw in color like shades of beautiful character expressing God's own. What traits of His do you see reflected now in your own mind? Look, the blossoms bud once again, though once dead, now bloom, violets and glories of the morning. Trees mighty, their strength towering above [...]

Love Letter

Little dove, my dearest one, you thought your life was almost done. But when you saw that you might sink, you fluffed your feathers and chirped, “Wait! Think! What about those things God has called my wings...?"

A Study of Light

A Study of Light

Moods of water float with ease on ice, broken. Let yours too. Water is drawn to rocky shores near naked sand. So am I. What is Love that it should shine through the dark night of my soul? What is darkness that it should reveal the Light of your love? Through fogs of depression You [...]

Induction

Induction

Eyes clear, ears soothed. No stone impedes your progress. The thin veil discloses gray forms, edges and outline, yet above and beyond—energy: ever-active, inventive, protective—in and around, it comes. New Life.

The Light of One

The tree limbs and branches sprawl and spread across the floating balloon of a sun. Light pushes through, taking center stage with brilliance. Place your candle on the table.

We hear the music of laughter, we hear rumblings of applause. We hear the shouting and rampage, we hear incessant banter. Only God hears the silent cry. Is it our disagreements over religion that offer solution to a longing heart or the silent cry to God believing it's been heard?

Cat Lesson?

Cat Lesson?

Sustaining can sometimes mean surviving and surviving can sometimes be a battle--organizationally and personally. When I've been faced with limitations, my own or otherwise, I've said, You are my Refuge. Sustain me according to Your Purpose. Do not let my hopes be dashed. I have done my best to do what is right and good. [...]

Beauty Enters Slowly

The wind is coming from the north. I notice it first because the tall grass is bending to the south and then I am aware of its caress against my skin. The sun's heat presses down and enters.  You always wait for an invitation.  The grass stills. The bee flies away. You wait. To enter.  [...]

Companion

Thirsty shores quenched by laughing, lapping waves. Sky wrinkled from a long night's work. Clouds, like cloaks, reveal pockets full of mystery. Against the somber waters, wings of hope appear and my eyes can see that nature, my close companion, understands the heart.
