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 [...]

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 [...]

The Mystery

The Mystery

Adventure called So I ran straight out the door! My hopes were high But they all soon hit the floor. My eyes were bright Fixed on a view that I'd longed for Then trouble came running And I lost the metaphor  It's a mystery What tomorrow will bring It's a tug-of-war that can undo my [...]

Fighting Words

Fighting Words

This isn’t what I planned on posting. I'm not feeling happy with what I was going to share, and to be honest the day is attempting to kick me in the teeth. As I started to get tearful, hope and joy began to run the other way. Get back here!!! Stop being cowards!!!! Okay, that [...]

That trials and tears come to an end Dreaming  Of laughter, love and friends  Dreaming  On wings I'll soar and life [...]

Stars

Stars

You hung the stars. How could I forget? In Your hands there is wisdom  There is power in Your breath.  You took such care  As you planned our days  You counted the stars And called each by name.  We're never adrift Your love is eternal  It’s so lovingly written in the skies above. How great [...]

Contentment

Contentment

Sometimes I'm so surprised by how the Holy Spirit leads. I'll be focused on one thing… looking for something specific, then He'll draw my eyes in a totally different direction. I love it when this happens. I'm also so glad that He does. I would miss so much. In those moments I'm quite inspired and [...]

Abound in Hope

Abound in Hope

Don't be afraid to look ahead Don’t be afraid to dream There's still hope in the unseen. Maybe you can't see it with your eyes Maybe you're caught up in all of the lies But in hope we'll see We'll realize  The future bests the days behind.  Don't be afraid to take a chance There's [...]
