With a chilly voice.
Daylight turns off her light
Earlier, as each evening fades
Calendar creeps forward to the
(Trying to enjoy each summer day while it lasts!)
Falling through life’s cracks?
Or are you a ground breaker?
Growing in the hard places,
Blooming where you’re planted,
In spite of dry times,
Letting nothing hold you back,
From reaching your goal?
Like teeming dandelions?
Living in this earthly life
His ways imperfectly seen
Until the time of perfection
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NKJV
Of sunny days
Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.
Each day summer’s warmth is cut short
This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.
The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.
Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.
Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.
I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
Quite fearful, yes,
A formidable opponent,
Sent to cause fear.
Yet God’s Armor protects me,
If I but wear it,
And stand firm resisting this
Foe, who hurls his darts
Of doubt, trying to wound my heart,
Until they meet the shield of faith.
Poem Inspired by Dictionary.com—Word Of The Day—Redoubtable
English redoubtable comes from Middle English redoutable “terrible, frightening, worthy of honor, venerable,” ultimately from Old French redotable, redoubtable, a derivative of the verb redouter “to fear, dread.” Redouter is formed from a French use of the prefix re- as an intensive (for instance, in refine), a use that Latin re- does not have, and from Latin dubitāre “to doubt, hesitate, waver” (but not “to fear”). Redoubtable entered English in the first half of the 15th century.

Planting mustard seeds
On my knees, moving mountains,
Breaking down barriers.
Believe and Pray:
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV
