Lifeless

Lifeless looking tree

Living in the past

No vision, no happiness

No dreams and no hope

Spring in My Step

Daffodils in red vase

Walking down the street

Daffodils strewn all about

Flowers at my feet

Happenstance recipient

Of Random Act of Kindness

Today as I was walking downtown in search of a restaurant, my eyes beheld a strange sight. I was passing by an old abandoned theatre and there, in the entrance way were scattered 5 fresh, bright golden daffodils, just waiting for a leading lady to pick up. How fortuitous for me!

To My Younger Self

Old woman with young woman

I once was you before you were me.

If I’d known then, what I know now,

I would have told you this:

Remember your creator

in the days of youth,

And listen to

Your parents

Stories,

For

Times

Will come

When you will

Wish you had done

All of that and more.

I would have told you

To plan well for your future

Since someday you would grow old,

Wish you had, but it would be too late.

Works Of Art

Horse Sculptures by Dixie Jewett of Dayton ,OR

At

First glance

I may seem

Ordinary

Yet if you will stop

To take a closer look

You may be quite surprised

You’ll see I that am a unique

Creation of God’s workmanship even though

At first glance I may seem ordinary.

Dectina Refrain

Just as these beautiful metal horse sculptures pictured above are unique creations of art, created by Dixie Jewett of Dayton,OR thru her love of horses and her skill in welding, so are we all works of art, created and designed by God.

Each of us are unique. Masterpieces of our Creator who formed us in love, to reflect and shine His workmanship to the world around us.

Ephesians 2:10 Amplified Bible (AMP)

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].

Point of View

Window

Plans are often made

From the inside looking out

Or from the outside

As someone’s looking in

What is it you see?

Two different perspectives

Are presented

In a vista from within

Or an angle from without
