The Rarity of Christ

Flowers, white, yellow, orange

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

I find it a most useless plight

As I search among the flowers bright

In all effort, as hard as I might

I do my search long and very sure

Finding tis only one truly right

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

Triolet

( For only Christ is truly pure and righteous and only He will last eternally )

Based on 1 Peter 1:24

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away

Created to Fly

Butterfly sitting on a flower

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

I want to soar, be sublime

I hear the message “It’s Time”

I want to rise in my prime

I want to circle the sky

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

Triolet

Butterflies were created to fly but did you know they can’t fly if they are cold?

Butterfly Kinesiology: Keeping Warm and Staying Aloft

I can also relate this to myself, in that unless I say close to The Son, abiding in Him to receive the warmth of the Father’s love, I will not be able to stay aloft to reach my full potential and do what I was created for.

Something to think about today as I sit and watch the butterflies flutter about my yard in the summer sun.

Omnipresent

Me standing by a lighthouse mural

Everywhere and everywhen

Daybreak and eventide

He’s there time and again

Everywhere and everywhen

Inside or out He’s therein

Ever always by my side

Everywhere and everywhen

Daybreak and eventide

Intermission Time

Suitcase

I’m going on vacation

Bags are packed, ready to go

Plans made, work is done

I’m going on vacation

Looking foward to fun

Expectations high, doubts are low

I’m going on vacation

Bags are packed, ready to go

Triolet

Isn’t it great when we can plan and take a vacation?

Whether is just an overnight stay, a few days away or just a day trip it’s an exciting time.

The planning and packing sometimes are better than the trip itself because of the adrenaline rush they bring into our life.

Something new awaits us!

We are leaving our comfort zone and venturing out into the unknown, anticipating good results!

It’s summer, time for vacations, pack up, go make memories that you can savor when the chilly winds of fall arrive in your life and winter knocks on your door with her icy fingers.

Even if everything doesn’t go as planned you will still be able to look back and be thankful that you took time to take a break and enjoy life!

Spring Cleaning

Figure with push broom sweeping

Distressed?

Oppressed?

Obsessed?

Depressed?

Repressed?

Suppressed?

Get rid of all those stresses

Banish all those presses

Remove all those sesses

Get rid of all those stresses

Add some blesses, progresses,

Impresses, and successes

Get rid of all those stresses

Banish all those presses

How Many Roads?

Image of Bob Dylan
Happy 78th Birthday to Bob Dylan!

How many roads have you trod

In those earthly shoes?

Though worn and weary yet you’d plod,

How many roads have you trod?

Through city streets or soggy sod,

Doin your best, payin your dues,

How many roads have you trod,

In those earthly shoes?

Triolet

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

—Bob Dylan

Happy 78th Birthday today to Bob Dylan!
