If I were a flower.. …My son, Christopher and his wife, Tammy, went farming
in northern Virginia for sunflowers! Look what they surprised me with! Aren’t they beautiful? Happy flowers that smile and makes me happy! If I were a flower I think I would choose to be a sunflower because they seem to always follow the sun!
What flower would you like to be and why?


A Path…

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:6, NKJV)
 ImageI have spend the last year or so trying to build a walking meditative path on an acre of land that was purely neglected farm land for years in eastern NC. It has a small pond that is worked into my maze. We have now planted 20 plus Crepe Myrtle Trees along my charted design.  Hopefully, with the downpours of rain and sun sprinting in between we will see blooms to delight the eye in a week or two. It’s still rough terrain with much work to do. As I contemplated my second part of this oversized plan I felt the pang of discouragement tucking at me. When out of the clear I hear the words from the man of wisdom; stop and acknowledge God and then He will direct your path! Looks like I have work to do inside myself so my walking meditative path can take on it’s intended character and use.

I hope each of you have a well “lit path” as you do your work today! May enlightenment be your greatest reward!

Hope Woven in The Cross

Hope Woven in The Cross

Psalms of Praise and Songs of Grace
Have done their best to paint The Cross.

The height of The Cross is not impressive
And the shape is not expressive.

Yet there hung a man of gentle and humble
Lineage bearing our shame.

The Wood of The Cross has not been revealed,
Insignificant in the woven work of The Cross.

The splendor was not in a tree that held
The blood stains that dripped from the thieves
Or the King.

The majestic life of The Cross was how the rainbow colors
Of the tears, sweat and blood were woven in the tree
Uniting you and me with the work done on the Tree.

The artist has depicted you and me woven
In our humanity and shown love by the Divinity
of The Cross stained by His Blood.
