On High

Tops of Evergreen trees, night sky, colors, stars

As my prayers ascend

To Him who is on high

Blessings come down

Covering my path

Like falling leaves

Life’s Ordinary Things

Blue Bird singing, Red Rose blooming, Watercolor by Leonas Designs

Bird song,

First rose in bloom.

Enjoying the simple things.

Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun

Blessings,

Priceless, often overlooked,

Treasures are free,

And in our lives

Abound.

Butterfly Cinquain

Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse

Reluctantly,

November Goodbye scene

Tonight with sadness,

I shall say “Goodbye November.”

Month of gratitude,

That causes us to reflect

Upon our blessings,

And give thanks for our life.

No other month does this.

November, I shall miss you,

In December’s hectic days.

Richly Blessed

Stop, look around you.

Blessings come in many sizes,

How many do you see?

And how many are unseen?

Big and small blessings,

That live within your heart?

Treasure them all.

For if you have even one,

You are rich my friend!

Pause to Praise

Praising God
Is your life full

Of good things sent from the Lord?

Abundantly blessed,

Crowned with tender mercies?

Have you been divinely

Healed, Forgiven, Redeemed?

May you never forget

To always praise the Lord daily

For everything He does for you 

Choka
