A Leaf in Summer

Brown dried up leaf in summer

Out of place?

Out of season?

A misfit in my path?

Or a reminder sent by God?

A note

To awaken me to count the days,

Wasting not a moment?

“Redeem the time”

He says.

I passed by an old friend today

Tattered, torn and weather worn

From years of dedication

He still stood proudly there

Though faded, not jaded

To remind me

Of freedom

My friend

A Remembrance

Cross

Today

Lying in my path

A reminder of You

Twig cross created by the wind’s breath

Speaks loudly

Cinquain

Yesterday as I went out to get my mail it was windy and raining so I was walking with my hood up and head down, when I noticed what looked like a tiny beautiful cross lying in a pool of water on the blacktop. It was fashioned of two light colored twigs that apparently were blown by the wind to end up in that position. The way the light hit it it almost appeared to look golden. It stopped me in my tracks that’s for sure! As I pulled out my phone to snap a picture I thanked God for sending me this reminder on the day before Palm Sunday!

They “Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” John 12:13 KJV

What is “Palm Sunday”?

What is “Holy Week”?
