as a child…

Gilded chandeliers on high Columns reaching to the sky Centuries old this wondrous sight I wonder what God sees… Golden statues, candles’ flames Crowds that come and say The Name None to folly, none to blame I wonder what God sees… Folded hands, heart open wide Searching soul with closed eyes Praying words too deep to hide I’m thinking this God sees… …this young child kneeling there hands held out folded in prayer, kneeling down and casting cares I’m thinkingRead more

Sunrise, Sunset

So yesterday began with beautiful sights. It was the whole ‘Super Blue Blood Moon” Lunar Eclipse morning. And here’s the “Super Blue Blood Moon” eclipse. Pretty cool sights all before 7:00 this morning. Sunrise On the way to work, I always pass a beautiful spot where the sun is usually just peeking out while I’m passing by.  I beat it by a few minutes today. The day was a good day. It was my first day back after being sickRead more

Standing Still

I can hear it before I see it.  Some days it’s louder and faster and more powerful. Other days it’s slower and  more quiet and peaceful. But I can always hear it before I see it.  I know plants can’t hear. But I’m sure there’s some sense of the water raging by. And spiders hanging by threads inches from the waters edge….I’m sure that they are aware of the powerful force of the waves beneath them. And rocks,…more like boulders,Read more

A Slow Unfolding

If a sunflower could wink, I think this is what it would look like. It’s slowly unfolding its petals and unveiling what’s beneath a little bit at a time. Kind of feel like life is like that sometimes. Sometimes it takes a good good long while to see the bud turn to a bloom, and then the bloom to surrender all the petals to reveal what’s beneath. Sometimes it takes awhile to see hard work pay off, lessons be learned,Read more

“All for Nought” … NOT!

Well, I found myself thinking something today. I was thinking that I didn’t want a lot of effort in certain areas to be “All for nought”.  I didn’t want years of effort and prayer and work to be futile, meaningless, and void of any good benefits.  Like so often happens, what we think tends to come out in our words in a matter of time. For me, it was only a matter of minutes before what popped into my brainRead more

Mono chromatic Pebbles Weekly Photo Challenge

Pebbles.  A millions little pieces that can become the ground we walk on.  As a child, I knew the feeling of walking barefoot on little pebbles, for we had pebbles that filled the spaces around the back of our home.  We played in pebbles by making mounds, we smoothed the pebbles with rakes, we threw and scattered the pebbles with buckets and dump trucks and were strongly reminded to make sure the pebbles get back to the area within theRead more
