Many are asking,”Who can show us any good?”

Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.

You have filled my heart with greater joy

than when their grain and new wine abound.

I will lie down and sleep in peace,

for you alone, O Lord,

make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:6-8

Just let this passage soak in for bit.  Meditate on the words and meditate on what it’s saying to us!

This passage embodies the full meaning of peace for me.  The warmth of God’s light, the great joy and the peaceful slumber.  Do not worry your self to sickness.  God is there to be your refuge.

They’re here! They’re here!

This poem was written when I realized that I was in love with Mitch.  I have modified it from it’s original version just a bit.  I have grown as a poet a tiny smidge since this was written all those 12 years ago!

The First Flakes of the Winter Season

The First Flakes of the winter season are a wondrous sight

The chill is mild, not piercing as February winds might

The therapeutic aroma of wood burning tickles our nostrils

A moonlit picture fills the window in our den, glittering snow and we’re thrilled!

The first flakes of the winter season fall straight from heaven to kiss the earth below

One season is left behind, but another emerges, and so goes the flow

He holds me to ease my fear, my pain, my stress and to show is undying love

The fire crackles, the snow falls, he whispers, “Will You Marry Me?  You are a gift from above.”

The moment is perfect and I know the gift is mine

God brought us together and just in time

For every winter until I pass I will cherish these first flakes of the winter season!

The weather has begun it’s turn from warm summer to cool fall, so I decided to be nice to our bunnies and make a couple of pens in the barn for them.  Well wouldn’t you know at his first chance that male rabbit would invade the space of the female!  Hmmmfff!  I made the cutest little pen for them and he chewed right through the wood separation wall I worked so hard on.  Little stinker.  Poor Stella, so now Buddy has been reinforced in his own space and he better stay over there, but I fear that the damage has been done and instead of cute little Easter bunnies, we may have cute little deer season bunnies!  Anyone looking for cute Holland Lop bunnies?

writing-a-book

My big problem? I love the way my pen feels when it’s gliding across a smooth straight line of wide ruled notebook paper. It’s just not as romantic to plunk at letters and watch them appear before your eyes in a magical display of technology. Of course my love of pen to paper is equally shared with a napkin or grocery receipt found in my purse when a burst of inspiration strikes.
