I Haven't Forgotten

I Haven't Forgotten

To all my friends who’ve come and gone And those who’ve gone to be with God  I’m glad I knew you I'm thankful we met  Your love and kindness, I’ll never forget. I miss your hellos And your words of encouragement The things that made you uniquely you  And all the thoughtful things you said [...]

Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart

Don't keep looking at the darkest skies They'll only swallow you up in lies  Don't forget there's a silver lining  Behind those greys is something worth finding. Don't keep buying what you cannot feel You may not see it That doesn't make it real Don’t forget that the sun still shines  We're not alone  But [...]

Pure Joy

Pure Joy

I really like the sound of pure joy. How about you? Pure joy sounds amazing actually. While looking through my drafts, the following verse spoke to me. However, I wasn’t feeling that pure joy. Infact, I was feeling quite dry, which is ironic considering all of my water metaphors lately.  Yes, dry, burnt out, and [...]

Signs

Look at the colours! Fallen leaves can be so lovely. Every season has it's signs that change is coming. The Lesson of the Fig Tree “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near." Matthew 24:32 Jesus: A Sign that [...]

Wisdom’s Wake Up Call

Wisdom’s Wake Up Call

People are talking. They say that Ignorance is bliss. But Wisdom sees things differently... Wisdom calls out “Wake up!” “You’re sleeping your life away!” Ignorance doesn't respect Wisdom. She taunts and jeers, “I have what I want.” But she doesn't understand that she stumbles around in the dark. She laughs and mocks Wisdom But Wisdom [...]

Suf-FISH-ient

I'm a fish  Blub blub blub Don’t ask I'm trying something different  Thinking outside my box  It was kind of cramped in there anyways.  Wait a minute I'm a fish  Fishes don’t have boxes  They swim the ocean with ease  Sometimes we call them seas So seize the day  And be a fish  If you [...]

Parentage: Part 3

Parentage: Part 3

It's been some time since I continued my "Parentage" posts! Nice hair, right!? Better than mine. (smirk) In the above image are my great-grandpa's sisters. (Nellie, Maud and Rose.) Do you give much thought to family history? I enjoy uncovering or discovering things. Unfortunately, only one side of my family showed any interest in keeping [...]

Aggression

Aggression

I found this in one of my notebooks and thought it was funny. Apparently Andrew and I must have been watching a nature show. This is the first thing I wrote down: "Baboons raising their eyebrows is a sign of aggression." Next were my thoughts on this matter... When I raise my eyebrows it’s a [...]

Power Outage

Power Outage

I'm not a big fan of sudden, unexpected power outages. As the case may be they're almost always sudden and unexpected. Life is the same way. Things have a way of changing on a dime.  Thankfully our power outage occurred on Monday morning after I'd posted on my blog, caught up with a friend, and [...]
