Moonlight Mood

Full Moon

The night sky hovers

The trees raise to greet

Strawberry Moon glows radiant

Tonight

In the dark of night

Kaleidoscope reveals

Broken dreams and tears

Yet the promise of new life

Appears amid the fragments

Sighting September

Moonlit night

August tried to warn

Us of her impending move.

She sent us cool drafts,

Chilling memos of warning.

Yet, wrapped in sweaters

We missed her exiting.

Undercover of night,

With just the moon as witness,

Fall bearing September came.

Morning Mood

Bag of Tears

Joy stealer entered

A visitor in the night

Left a bag of tears

Senryu

Psalm 30:5 says

“Weeping may endure for a night,

But joy comes in the morning.”

But, what if joy doesn’t come in the morning? Wonder if more weeping and anxiety comes?

Well, since we know that God does not lie, we know God’s word is true. Therefore, if what He says is not happening we need to figure out why.

Why didn’t joy come in the morning?

Because the enemy stole it from us. The joy stealer struck in the night. He took our joy and left us in tears.

Jesus said in John 10:10 that : “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

So, whoever this thief is, whether it’s the devil, our own flesh, the world, or a person, we can recognize that he’s a joy stealer, a thief that needs to be banished from our life. But how?

God’s word says His mercies are new every morning,

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not, They are new every morning;…

Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV”

So every morning we can choose to throw that bag of tears away from us, and reach out to grasp the joy that God brings us each morning by believing His word and claiming it.

And every night before we go to bed we can cover ourselves with the blood of Jesus and the Armor of God so that the thief will not be able to break in and steal from us anymore.

Sizzling Summer Sunset

Summer Sunset on July 4th

July 4th

God’s Fireworks

Light up the horizon

And set nighttime heavens soundlessly

Ablaze!

Cinquain

(As our neighborhood and city was putting on a very noisey fireworks display, God entered with the most beautiful brilliant sunset that awed many)
