A word of caution... The two photos at the top of this post are lovely. The two at the bottom are not, (unless the sight of mice traps doing their thing doesn't bother you?) The picture is included because of the sobering parable it depicts A new day is upon us It lends to me and you A very telling onus By how we live for who Each day is filled with choices A subtle smorgasbord Where what we cherish voices Who is master and Lord Pray, it is He who freed us From the bondage of death Pray we plead Him to lead us In paths of righteousness Behold, today is breaking Alike to one and all ..read more

Something About Planting Season

The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. Ps.24:1 What are you singing, asked my husband on Saturday as he heard me humming while I worked in the flower garden... I thought for a moment and realized I was singing this stanza (to no fixed tune??) which often comes to mind while I putter in the garden, The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,-- One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth... (full poem below post) Something about planting season overflows the heart with cheer... When the plow breaks dormant fallow and dust’s pungent inc ..read more

? Happy May Weekend to you, wherever in the world you are! Below is a glimpse of May from southern Ontario  I love raindrop-dallop kerplops, like a liquid hip-hop dance... I love lilac's starry laughter... I love gardens after winter’s wish-and-dream starts coming true... I love first bursts of green grandeur every rapt gaze can afford I love hoary blossom-halos; pink perfume profusely poured I love flower-garden benches, I love outdoor living rooms And the thirst that nature quenches from bud-founts gushing with blooms I love bold gold and red tulips,  v ..read more

A Prayer (because perspective can easily run askew)

Delighting in these double tulips! The Creator of heaven and earth and the Saviour of the soul; This is our Heavenly Father who cherishes our prayers and  desires us to put our faith in Him! Today's poem-prayer was inspired in part by the verse below Acts 28:24 And some were persuaded by the things which were spoken,  and some disbelieved... Dear Lord, bid I commit to walk by faith and not by sight Dear Lord, confound my idle talk with holy appetite And give me ears to hear and eyes to see, lest deaf and blind To sacred things regarding Thee, I look but cannot find Lord ..read more

We Are Either Blessed or Cursed...

Daily we are blessed or cursed by what/who we most dearly love/serve?? What/who on life's highway will claim our passion today?!!? SO many choices but only two masters! And we all, by the voice of choice, serve only one Matt.6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Jesus~ *** We are either blessed or cursed by what keens hunger and thirst By the guests Thought entertains, by the quests desire unchains By the reasons we confess in our search for happ ..read more

This morning I can't help but lament a little, (a lot!!)  because exhaustion drew me to my bed last night while others stayed up and watched a grand display of aurora borealis/northern lights... but I did grab a few declarations of God's glory earlier while mowing lawns! and one this morning!  The heavens are pitched like a tent that often captures our gaze The surface of yon firmament evokes worship’s unsullied praise Masterpiece after masterpiece in a glorious free-for-all Proclaims a Name that will not cease as generations rise and fall The glory the heavens declare is b ..read more

Good/Happy gorgeous, Friday May morning to you... Across the eastward brink of earth, a sea of unplumbed moments tolls Something about a new day’s birth wakens awareness in our souls For He who sets before our gaze, Hope’s Frame filled with mercy renewed To author a glad hymn of praise and unspeakable gratitude Ahoy! The hours fleetly fly between daybreak and twilight’s knell Soon their plumbed aftermath will lie like husks strewn where dusk’s shadows fell Leaving behind the words and deeds we tossed like seeds along the way A blend of fruit, flowers and weeds that will be threshed on ..read more

Happy Ascension Day! Acts 1:9-11 After He had said this, they watched as He was taken up,  and a cloud hid Him from their sight.  10They were looking intently into the sky as He was going,  when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them.  11“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky?  This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven,  will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.” Isa.55:12 You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;  the mountains and hills will burst into song before ..read more
