Renewal

Scripture verse image for Isaiah 40:31

Waiting

Upon the Lord

Praying, hoping, believing,

All give me strength to begin

Again

Summer’s New Normal??

Sleeping cloud

Summer’s been sleeping,

Wasting her alotted days

Procrastinating.

Weather man keeps promising

Tomorrow for sure

We’ll see her warm sunny smile,

Yet so far it seems

She keeps on hibernating.

Will tomorrow ever come?

Anticipating

Chairs set up in the yard ready for summertime visitors

Waiting,

For summertime.

Looking for the sunshine

To chase away the dull gray days

Of life.

Cinquain

July 5th and it’s still cloudy, gloomy, chilly weather outside. We are ready for some warm, sunny days, but still waiting for summer weather to arrive. Hope it does soon.

The Waiting

Christmas Bags of Gifts

After Thanksgiving

It all began happening

Planning, purchasing

Decorating and wrapping

Now we sit and wait for morn

Tanka

Our family is having our Christmas tomorrow morning because that’s the only time everyone can get together at once.

Presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, and I’m ready to go!

Tonight I am just resting, watching Christmas movies, nibbling on a few cookies, and waiting for morning 😊

Above

Jar with James 1:17 scripture

Treasures abound.

Many gifts are waiting

In my Father’s house.

Only good and perfect gifts

Are waiting to be found.

Tanka

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 KJV

The Passive Line

People

Among strangers

In line together

Mumbling

Grumbling

Shuffling feet in weariness

I stood behind you

As you spoke

A breath of fresh air

Uplifted

Awakened

My senses, because your words changed

The whole atmosphere.

Words full of

Positivity,

Thankfulness,

Permeated

And turned strangers into

Lively comrades

Time Less

HourGlass lying sideways

Unfinished projects abound.

Each day showing me they’re around,

They shift and fall and fret,

Hoping my attention to get.

Some buried beneath a paper stack,

Just lie in wait for what they lack.

Others in plain site collect

Dust, as each day them I neglect.

Sadly they all sit, waiting for the day,

For me to have time to bring life their way.
