Moon, Ephesians 6:12 scripture verse

Oft times nestle?

Or sometimes wrestle?

A broken vessel?

Not feeling very special?

Run to God, He’s your trestle

They Said—I Said

Big tree

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

They said “ You won’t win”

They said “Just give in”

They said “ Don’t even begin”

They said “Who you think you are?”

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

I said “ I will soon win”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I will begin”

I said “ I will soon find a way”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

Double Triolet

Written to all the Naysayers from a Yaysayer

“Never Ever Give Up!” “Stand Tall” “Grow”

(When I saw this huge tall tree on my walk the other day these thoughts came to mind)

Monotonous Motion

Treadmills at the gym

Questioning my purpose

Walking everyday

And yet I’m going nowhere

On the treadmill of life

Need to stop and get off

That sad revolving belt

Get out in the real world

Find new paths to walk on

New voices to listen

To, and new faces to see

Realize I’m in control

Of where my feet step

I need to choose wisely

And plan future paths

Cruising McMinnville

Grand-daughter’s 1985 RX-7 Mazda cruising downtown McMinnville
Grand-daughter’s 1985 RX-7 Mazda cruising

Ah

Tonight

In my mind

And in my heart

I was young again

I visited the past

Rode down memory lane

Remembered the days of old

While standing on the streets of now

Reverse Nonet

Tonight our hometown had a classic car show and cruise, and I had the pleasure of not only watching all those beautiful cars that I remember from my past drive around,

but also had the opportunity to ride in one!

I began driving in 1960 and I was blessed to have owned many of those cars that are now called “classic”. (And I wish I still had some of them now!😊)

But it was such fun to not only see them all cruising around but to also be able to do so with my 18 year old grand-daughter who owns a 1985 RX-7.

Fun night! Great old and new memories!
