Judge Not—There’s A Time for Everything

The excited butterfly

Shouted at his friend below:

“Fly! Reach for the sky!”

“My time has not yet come”

Said the waiting caterpillar.

Tanka

In its own appointed time, eventually every caterpillar will fly, for it will transform into either a butterfly or a moth.

Perhaps that is the same timing for some people, therefore we should not judge.

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:…

Eccl. 3:1

In Bethlehem

The hustle and bustle

On the city sidewalks

Disappears from view

As the two weary travelers

Seek shelter in a stable

Tanka

And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

One Step at a Time

Steps, feet climbing steps

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

Life is taking on different tone

Stepping out of my comfort zone

I’m out sharing, not sitting alone

Lots to see, lots to do

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true
