i remember when… #childhood #worldteachersday2020

I felt so big

then I opened my eyes

a wheel so large

it touched the sky

pebbles

called sand

sift

through my hand

I sang a song

the trees sang along

my teachers

and I

we made

lemonade

Remember back to when the clouds were so puffy you believed they were cotton balls or better yet cotton candy. Too soon we lose the wonder of the beauty of life and we are often left with bent perspectives. Blue is now grey and a smile is a frown. Teaching keeps the heart young and bubbly all because of … The child

Hope comes in strange forms as does healing.

The hospital I was admitted to was an Oasis for those with little to cling to.

This week I lost my little sister to Cancer. Her fingers slowly lost grip of this life. She was cheerful at the end and surrounded by love.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.

~Hebrews 1:3

In The Midst of … #9/11 #crisis #suffering — We Go Fish

“I was a child soldier stolen from my tribe and forced to learn to shoot a gun. They played tricks on our minds. My wife was made to be their slave– to do whatever the soldiers wanted. God was miraculous– I was rescued before I ever was made to kill another person.” My jaw wanted […]

no scrape of a chair

This year there are many classrooms that stand waiting in lonely anticipation for the voices of children…

Used to Be Home #fires #California #poetry

natural beauty

cruel embroiled waves

obscured by flames

a tricylcle all alone

picture – a melted phone

can’t reach home

For those of you who are in California our prayers are ongoing. We check in by phone and grateful that family can still pick it up. But there are many lines that will never ring again

Thank you Firefighters – yours is a thankless job!!!

Even when I Can’t See #truth

ocean

golden rays

open nature’s aperture

out with the tide

And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?

~Isaiah 40:12
