AWAITING WINTER

October 30, 2016

Snowflakes falling
Silent sounds
Gentle softness
Hits the ground

Quietly
The world becomes
As the blanket
Covers homes

White so clean
We can forget
In that moment
No regrets

Hanging like suspended time
Snowflakes bring a special mind
Times of childhood sledding round
Adult worries can’t be found

Falling like a gift of love
Moments gentle like a dove
Glistening in the sun’s bright light
No more fears the dark of night

Snowflakes like renewing rain
Bring their own refreshing gain
Each one falls unique in time
Like a heavenly artistic rhyme

Snowflakes falling
Silent sounds
Can’t wait ’til winter
Comes around

On Being Understood…Ponder

January 26, 2009

I wish I had a safe place

Somewhere I could just go and say what I want

Somewhere I could be depressed if that is what I was feeling

 

I used to have a safe place

A friend so close and kind

But she left and departed to another place

One I can’t follow

 

I miss that

Being understood

It is a beautiful thing to be understood

 

As a matter of fact 

I think it is one of the most valuable things in life

To be understood

 

And you know what?

I think God wants that too

Is that why He wrote a book?

Is that why His interaction with man is recorded?

I think so

 

Did you know that He once said

That the actions of mankind “crushed Him”

Like the heart of a man that finds his wife in adultery

Giving herself to another lover

 

That’s deep

Why do we think that God does not feel?

Why do we think that He does not have emotions?

Because He is so big and powerful?

It doesn’t work that way

 

Why did He make us?

He wanted a family

Yep – the God of the Universe wanted kids

And His Son a bride

 

Take another look

Our God has feelings

And how often we hurt Him

Oh yes – He’s big and strong

But He feels deeper than we can imagine

 

So take another look

A look at your sins

Is it worth it

When you know it causes Him pain?

Ponder…
