Looking for Gumption

Nut tree orchard in winter

I’m fighting

The urge to not care

To give up

Abandon

All the minutes given

Me to use today

Shadorma

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalm 63:1

My Jewel

Sting of Pearls plant

Living String of Pearls

Sits upon my window sill

Silent Succulent

Haiku

(I just love my String of Pearls plant that I purchased last summer at our local Farmer’s Market. It sits on the a southern facing windowsill in my bedroom and really seems to like the filtered sunlight that streams thru as it has been steadily growing beautifully.)

Dreams Do Come True

Grandson in LA

Hollywood streets paved with dreams

Where some stars shine bright

Grandson is livin’ his it seems

He’s walking those streets tonight 

Syllabic Rhyme

My oldest grandson is a music artist in LA tonight to perform a show there on Friday. Tomorrow is his 25th birthday. He is so excited because he dreamed his whole life that someday he would go to LA and now he’s there for his birthday and to perform a show. I am so happy for him that his dream came true!

Count The Days

Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR
Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR—June 2012

We count our life in years,

But what about the days?

All the seconds of life?

Cherish all the minutes.

It’s in those moments,

Memories are made,

Chances are taken,

Changes often happen.

Treasure every breath.

Celebrate each day.

Give thanks for your life.

Syllabic Verse

My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?

It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!

It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.

What is HOPE?

Hope Advent Candle

Hope is a Promise,

Hold fast to it without wavering.

Hope is Living, through God’s

Mercy in Christ’s resurrection.

Hope is Grace and God.

Hope’s in you and me.

Hope is an Anchor,

That’s sure and steadfast-cling to it.

Hope is ours for the Future.
