Late Winter

Northern fronts
Can be quite blunt
Back and forth
With a kick pass punt

Changing direction
Chiming windmills
Airbrushing sun tattoos
Before being stilled

Tears on my face
As I tend to the mill
But I’ve had fulfillment
In this long winters’ chill

For trust in God
The key to strength
Endurance, resilience
To go the length

Winter cloths
Caress with salve
Red cracked lips
At the frozen improv

The turning of pages
Brings love to the verse
Settling yesterdays’ bout
With the cold winters burst

Peaceful Prism

Windows glisten, as they frost
Looking out at colder blues
Red and yellow and orange views
Fellow shades for warmer hues

Geometric prisms serve
In patterns turn, kaleidoscopes
eyes are rolling in an arc
painting pretty isotopes

Beyond the specs of yesteryear
Tears that glow yet move on by
For God, our hungry appetite
His beauty sings, a lullaby

Sweet and soft, the tender beams
Filling longing souls with glee
Melting frozen hearts with ease
Holy Spirit heals and frees

He who hung the whole world wide
Holds us in His hand so tight
Lays us in His bosom light
Bids us come without a fight

The eye doth rise above each plight
In His strength and in His sight
His victory grins from ear to ear
His song with muffs to warm us here

March On

His coat is thick
His gaze is long
His ears are sharp
His feet are strong
His Fathers house with chimney high
Branches broad
Clothe much more, I
Taken care of all the while
Through sunshine storm and shadow nigh …
God who loves me as I trod
A simpler path past somber eyes
Sure in step
To meet each juncture
And climb with power past all fear
In victories march
Proceed onward
All for One and one for all
Reward is come
Eternal One
Crown the Master of all mercy
Hail the King of Israel
Crown the Master of all mercy
Glory to God in the new Zion

“He will keep in perfect peace
Whose mind is stayed on Thee”

Lessons

Time, it cannot melt the truth
Oh e’r forget the day
I felt the rain
But don’t regret
The love, it left behind
The long long road
Lit up with strength
Where God’s sweet Glory
Sowed in length
With needles Hidden
Healed all pain
Where all ones pride
Must learn to die
With stupefying fights all fixed
Pity payed no mind to mix
Love turned the lies
Back into Truth
One of loves greatest lessons
To be learned

It is Enough

“How precious is your steadfast love, oh God
The children of mankind take refuge in your wings
Psalm 36:7

Going about in your day today, A Prayer of love is being sent your way.
A prayer that you will know and feel how much you are loved even in the smallest of details.
Right when I got out of my car a flock of birds were flying over my head in the front yard.
They were flying in the pear tree, happily chirping and eating the dried pears,
that were left on the tree in winter. There wasn’t much left, but they were happy. It was enough.
And I just knew that God was talking in the little things.
Let us glean from the Lord and count everything all joy, even when what we would like Is not under our control.
His majesty is constant and all knowing. Everything is in His control, in each and every moment of the day.
His creation is a testament to that.
You are precious to Him in every little way. In everything that happens along your way.
He may not give you what you want all the time but He provides everything that you need. That is sure.
He loves and cares for you, and He is with you all throughout the day.

You are worth many sparrows
Have a great day k

Pulchritudinous

Pulchritudinous, solemn
Uncluttered and so clean
Orderly, sterile, perfect, pristine
Comforting, calm, serene

The first snows a dusting
Upon the evergreens
Winter just beginning
Settling us to glean

A glimpse into the Heavens
A place we long to be
Just an intimate walk with Jesus
On the way to Eternity
