Cross Roads #sundaydevotion

 

Life’s road  uneven

filled with pain

I’ve know the sting

of sin’s dark reign

*

the fork it beckoned

from afar

succumbed to flesh

I see the scars

*

His light it shines

in darkest place

removes the stain

no one can trace

*

I gladly trudge

this burden bear

to heaven’s cross road

my savior’s there!

 

 

“A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.”

Isaiah 35:8

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Life’s Road is filled with rocks and uneven spots. Some days we have little strength to crawl. Though this life is tough, Jesus promises that He is there to walk over the toughest terrain  (carrying us if need be).

Yummy #atozchallenge #children

 

yummy sweets

 the colors of the rainbow

really love grape

I know this is a simple haiku but it speaks of the children and the simple pleasures. They wait patiently for a snack, but they especially love it when we bring a sweet after class.

man size stripes

children forced to bare

who will make this right

cold hard becomes the stare

wire cuts clean through

 innocence dies

sign our own doom

none believe the lies

children pay the price

no money can repay

history must think twice

there is a judgement day

My Focus this month is children. The Acholi people (and presently the So. Sudanese) hold basins of tears for children lost because of military despots. South Sudan has displace over 1 million children most are now orphaned. We try to help but wouldn’t it be easier to stop trying to destroy tomorrow’s hope because of today’s wire thin avarice?

Certainly we have learned very little from the  slaughtering of 1.5 million children in the Holocaust,

This is my son Denis who is an amazing young man. He is determined to be the first of his biological family to graduate from High School and then continue on to college. He is already a leader. We are proud that he calls us Mama and Papa.

We love you Denis and are soooo proud of you!

Oodles of Planes #smithsonian #photography

 

 

 

All ages

captivated by flying

out of air

 

When I think of prolific I think of the number of aircraft at the Annual Innovations in Flight.  From Hot air balloons to planes that break the sound barrier, it’s a great day spent at Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum in Chantilly Northern Virginia.

Set this day aside if your love old cars, old aircraft, history and a fun day.  This year it will be held on June 16th. Did I mention that it is FREE??? The only cost is for parking. Please join us for prolific amount of AIR!!!!
