Greatly Surprised

Amazed

At all the wonder

In the world around me

I took time to look for it

And saw

When…

Clouds in blue sky

Worries appear like

Cloud, upon cloud, upon cloud

Threatening your day

Shift the view by looking up

Focus on blue sky above

Tanka

As the clouds move on and pass away, so will your troubles. Therefore, do not worry, but shift your focus to look to God above who is in control of all things.

(While out shopping today I happened to look up at the sky, as I often do because I always enjoy seeing the many different beautiful clouds Oregon has,and seeing this scalloped cloud formation today intrigued me.

As I gazed at it this poem formed in my mind that I felt I should share as it’s always a good reminder to me, as well as others, that we should not worry. )

Lord,

Sky with clouds

Whom have I but You?

To help when I’m sad and blue,

To plant a new seed,

To lift me in times of need,

To listen to prayers I plead.

Tanka

(Based on Psalm 73: 25-26)

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Thank You Lord, for always bring there for me, to listen, care and help.

Life Walk

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23 visual
Original Image— My Creative Bible

My joyful journey

Brings me beside still waters

Trusting my Shepherd

To lead through pastures of green

Peacefully I stroll

Pockets filled with promises

Walking with my King

Over mountains high and wide

And valleys deep and narrow

Choka

(Based on Psalm 23)

My grand-daughter and I had a “painting day” together today. We had fun painting inspirational rocks to put in my rock garden.

She was very creative and imaginative and turned two of the rocks into a horse face! 😊

Coming Home

My home patio

There’s no place like home

Monoku

Dorothy said it best: “ There’s no place like home”

I just got home from a 4 day visit to the coast, where I had a wonderful time sightseeing, spending time at the ocean beach collecting rocks and shells, meeting new people, eating great food staying at a wonderful Inn and just having a great adventure.

But, arriving home, walking into my cozy living room and relaxing on my comfy couch is the best feeling.

It’s nice to get away but it’s always good to come home.

And I am giving thanks this evening that I have a nice home to come to.
