Unreceptive

Unreceptive

(Image by Harmony Lawrence from Pixabay) It's time to return to my Poetic Journey through the Book of John. Won't you join me?

Prioritizing: Part 3

(All photos taken over the weekend at a Ladies retreat) Some Lessons are learnt the hard way. Perhaps, sometimes, this is the only way.

Photographs

Photographs

Image by LEEROY Agency from Pixabay Photographs won't tell the whole story Behind smiles can lay trials Hidden crimes Served time And broken dreams.

God’s Grace

God’s Grace

For a time I regretted naming her Grace. This is one of two cat tales that lead to the adoption of our own two kitties. Originally, we referred to her as Scruffy-Cat. She always looked a little disheveled. At first glance the darker markings on her face made her look like a feral street cat. [...]

Daily

(Photo credit goes to Pixabay.com user Pexels.) Tempted  By false advertisements  Fleeing Our course of defense Embracing  I'm lost here without you  Accepting  That Your way is best. Resisting  A world of distractions Rejoicing  In all that is right Remembering The gift that was given  Learning  To persevere through the night. Surrender Is still the [...]
