Words From Beyond

quill

Here is one for those of us who think that God still communicates in specifics to His own. And, man, do I need specifics!  Just how do I apply this Bible verse?  What am I supposed to say to this person in pain?  I’m worried, confused, or just plain bored.

Please, somebody tell me I’m not alone here.

This beautifully refreshing offering by Sibella at Arts and Rhymes encourages me in that conversation.  She is also a very talented visual artist.  Be sure and check out her site!

Words flow
Resembling
A whispering
Mountain stream
Or
Fly high
On the wing
Of a crying eagle

They tremble
On the rippling
Water surface
Or
Break darkness
With power
Of the light within

And somehow
You know
They were
Meant for you
Or
At least
You hope

And if not
You’re still glad
They were
At the right place
At the right time
In your sight
And that makes you
Happy
And you even
Smile 
A little
As you look up 
And say
Thank You

Happy Sprinter!

quillThanks to Mitch Teemley for this whimsical (but very profound) offering!  If you haven’t found Mitch’s site, The Power of Story, go there!! (Well, I mean, read this first, THEN go there.) You’ll laugh, be inspired, made to think.  And you will have fun. Thanks, Mitch!

Uncertain spring,

no longer winter.

Transition’s the only

permanent thing.

So why should we wait

to lift up our hearts?

Let us huddle together

and celebrate Sprinter!

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”
