REKINDLED LOVE

On a lonely beach
Dinner for two
Is what you chose

Heart pounding
Hands sweating
Mind unfocused

Speechless
Beside you
I stood

Arm in arm
You guided me
And whispered

Be with me
Stay with me
Live with me

Lighter than air
Softer than silk
Warmer than summer

You embraced
Me whole
With gentleness

You kissed
My lips
With tenderness

I reaccepted
A ring’s
Caressed

My heart
My soul
My life

Has been
It is and
Will be

Only for
My true love
You, my Husband

Cloudy With a Chance of Change

IMG_20180828_102309_824.jpg

Which clouds do your eyes focus on when you travel?

Is it the darkest ones in the far distance gathering for a storm, or the ones above you ready to release their showers, or the one drifting above the grown, soon to vanish before you draw near?

For me? It was the whitest one of all. It drifted low, rapidly changing, becoming smaller the closer my husband drove around the bend.

Clouds fascinate me. They deliver more than destruction or harm when they release the rain. They provide what’s needed for change to occur.

One day, maybe tomorrow or next spring, change will be seen. Not just by the new growth, but by the maturity and strength of how the tree, the bush or the vine endured the dark, heavy clouds that soon would appear.

Micro Bits Of Your Love

20180325_205302.jpg

They may seem like

micro events for others

But your acts of love

Are treasured in my heart

To recall when your gone

 

Tire you come home

With car keys in hand

You say, “Let’s go and

Set your cares free

Be relief and find peace.”

 

When you hold me

Your heartbeats ring

A triumphant melody

No words are needed

To know I’m safe with you

 

Honest words you speak

“Choose your movie

But please forgive me

If I fall asleep before you

I’ve had a challenging day”

 

At night, you kneel

By my side and pray

For the nightmare

Returned and stayed

Our child in trouble again

 

In the morning, I wake

your foot next to mine

I smile, you’ve remembered

What my heart need to know

I’m on your mind and in your heart

Why? I Don’t Know

I’m not sure why tree trunks have captivated me recently.

Maybe, because of their glistening colors at sunset.

Or maybe, they impress me on how they endured the harsh winter weather.

What they needed to lose, their outer skin, and weak branches, were for them to be able to expand and grow.

Besides the fallen branches were not strong enough to endure the snow, ice and winds.

Hum . . . maybe that’s why I experience losses this past season of life.

I need to let go and grow.

Well, I’m ready to expand my horizon and shine with a smile when the sunsets come.

With God’s help, I will carry on.

 

Alaska ~ Like A Dream on Moose Pass

IMG_20180126_074429_958.jpgDriving south on highway-1 from Anchorage, the view is beyond capturing, but I still try.
20180125_120645.jpg
It changes in minutes, just beyond the cluster of trees, over the bridge, after the next set of mountains, practically on every curve of the road.
20180126_082950.jpgBecause there isn’t always a place to pull over to the side of the road, I have to photograph from a moving car.
20180120_161537.jpgOne must be watchful and careful on this highway, it is dangerous, not only because of animals, but people and the weather.
20180125_120831.jpgWhen I see a grand scene, I photograph the view from a moving car as quickly as I can. Many times what I see before me, the camera can’t capture well.
20180126_084225.jpgOne, the grand view changes too fast.
20180125_115349.jpgTwo, light is difficult to photograph period.
20180125_120439.jpgThree, a moving vehicles with a snowy, dirty windshield causes fuzzy photos.
20180125_120212.jpgBut, I kept trying. I had to show you what I saw, because it expanded my chest wider, pulled my shoulders back, released my concerns and helped me breath deeper again.
20180125_115811.jpgOnce, I can stop. I do and then the scene swallows me whole. Nature does it every time, it reminded me of Who is actually in control and it’s not me.20180125_115637.jpg

God is Dominant.
