Fruitfulness

Vine, berry bush, fence,

Brambles verses barbs

Whether fenced in or out

The vine prevails

Difficult Day

Sunset Victory

What can I say,

About this day?

If my wish were a horse,

I’d have used force,

And just galloped away,

Have my way, and not stay.

But determination won,

And I didn’t run!

This day was not fun,

But now it’s done.

I didn’t give up!

I drank of its bitter cup,

And I came thru,

Battered ‘tis true,

A bit worse for the wear,

But I don’t care!

I didn’t taste defeat,

And Victory’s so sweet!

With Time and Care

Bay Leaf Plant
Wounds are healing

Restoration is at work

New life is coming

Haiku

This little Bay Leaf Plant was growing great in a small area of the lawn but one day he was accidentally mowed down and was deemed too injured to keep. He was headed for the compost bin but I intervened to save him. I wanted to give him a new chance at life and so with good soil, water and sunshine I see he is now coming back. New sprouts are emerging! Soon he will be a big glorious Bay Leaf Tree!  😊 

Life at times is rough

Somedays might be really tough

Never giving up

Holding on til my last breath

I choose life over death

Shepherding

Lamb
Venturing 

Out into the cold,

Adventure

Awaits as

Frozen twigs snap beneath my

Heavy booted feet. 

In the night

A weak little lamb

Strayed away

From the flock

Searching for greener pastures

Led by the enemy

My heart aches

But not from the cold

Rod in hand

I walk in

My Father’s Authority

Clinging to His Word

Fear tries to

Silently creep in

Doubt tries to

Overwhelm

But my feet are as hinds feet

And my mind is sure

Determined

To save the lost 

I move on

To overcome

My face set like flint

Lord God is my help

Wintery

Brisk air fills my lungs

As I cry out

At the sight

Rejoicefully I carry

My long lost sheep home!
