Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

This quote was on the tag of my favorite herbal tea bag. Ah, yes, that mankind could model nature…

Manifold

Tamborine
“Manifold” Tambourine

Many kinds; numerous and varied:

Are God’s Grace and Wisdom shown

To beings in the heavenlies

And to those in the world

By us the church on earth

If we minister

To one another

With our

Gifts

Nonet

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:10

(The photo is of one of my Tambourines that I use in praise and worship. I name all my Tambourines as I feel each instrument has a different purpose. This Tamborine I named “Manifold” because it reflects light in so many ways. I use it in worship to praise God for His Manifold Grace And Wisdom according to the scriptures 1 Peter 4:10 and Ephesians 3:10 )

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].

In the USA

Flag of the USA
Hush over the land

Humanity and Nature

Seeming to be on hold

Flag hangs silently waiting

Who? Will our next leader be?

Tanka

I am feeling a heavy stillness in the air today. No wind at all. Our Flag hangs silently. It’s eerie. It’s almost like nature and mankind are holding their breath awaiting this Election Day outcome. I shall pray and trust in God for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
