I heard His words echo “Follow,
Follow Me” and my heart told me go,
Go, leave the chaos, Follow Him,
Him, who knows all there is to know.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27
I see you
Standing on the street corner
Holding a cardboard sign that says
Nature shows us
Can be beautiful
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” —Author Unknown
Flew in this morn
Trees waved their greeting
Leaves danced around her feet
Welcomed her with a bright kiss
Banishing morning dew
As roses bowed
Step by step
You will make it soon
Determined steps always
Keep moving forward
This poem is based on an experience I had this summer where I faced a block walk up a steep hill, i had already walked nearly 4 miles, it was a hot day, I had no water with me, there was no place to stop and rest. I was tempted to quit, turn around, give up, but I didn’t and I am glad. It was difficult but I made it, slowly, one step at a time. And, as I look back now that was one of my best days, as I felt I had accomplished something that at the time seemed impossible.
Sometimes life is that way. Sometimes we want to just quit, give up, stop caring, stop trying, for just getting through the day seems like we are walking up a steep hill, with no place to stop and take a break, no refreshment or reprieve in sight, but if we keep moving forward, slowly, we will make it—one step at a time.
Never. Ever. Give Up.
In the Fall season of life
It seems the sun wanes,
It’s lost its strength.
It doesn’t cast warm rays as long,
Nor with as great intensity,
As when in its summer season
Then it was so bright and strong,
Vibrant, heated, remaining long,
But now it’s lost it’s fervor.
Yet, it still shines.
It still rises.
It still does what it was created to do.
It gives light,
Even though limited.
It doesn’t give up.
It shows up.
