Times of Some

Sometimes, it’s the setting sun. It’s the way the tree appears featureless as the light on the horizon, behind her, is leaving for the eve. A silhouette, left in the dark, until the light returns to brighten another day… sometimes.   Sometimes, its the song. Three single notes, pulling the fears from the eyes, as the acoustic speaks what we couldn’t say. Taking all the … Continue reading Times of Some

It’s All Love

I’m up so early this morning, and just maybe it’s for good reason? I have been noticing how everything that has been going on within my life — outside of the inevitable wages of sin that tend to show up everyday; the fallen world we live in — points me directly to the love of God. I’ll do my best to explain. Everything — from … Continue reading It’s All Love

Daft

The toxic grip of others; the hold they have upon the man or woman who is simply trying. Do they find pleasure in control? Do they look to find faults within another, with the hope that their own faults will soon flee them? What a miserable lie to tell one’s self. The damning shame we carry. Our peace is broken apart by the daily pick … Continue reading Daft

In Layers Of Our Time

The fall of the leaves The lighting of sun’s fire The walk within the forest that I do so desire They bring back many memories of what was for so long in time that will never return with family and friend now gone We had our winsome moments around this time of change in years that will never return and this year it feels so … Continue reading In Layers Of Our Time

Stay Inside

The chilling wind carrying rains of darkness, beating upon the world. It brings the memories of mornings, without; a time when life was much like the calamity outside — no light for sight. No cover for the damp. No insulate for the chilling condition. What if the day brings promising light with the same calamities? Like those days of old.   “Ambient radiance?” No. Just … Continue reading Stay Inside

Break Fast

We wake at dawn to find what we did not know last night Welcoming what is to come as we witness changing light The mind is slowly waking taking in the many ways Those things that will become the memories are now forming in our haze A cup of stimulant to wake us The brewing smell of bean A lovely mug of the idol we … Continue reading Break Fast

Two-Way Street

Tell me, my friend, what it’s like being me Have I forgotten what I had chosen to be? Perhaps–outside, looking in–you know better than me Maybe I’m the one who cannot see? Tell me, my friend, how does life look through my eyes? Does the vision you have speak as clearly as mine? Maybe I should step away and give you my mind and see … Continue reading Two-Way Street

What We Choose To See

The anticipation of spring; the long awaited event that is greatly appreciated after a cold winter. The blooming of the new, full of the bold colors of God’s choosing. My wife requested that we surround the house with flowers this year. We had moved into a different home a little over a year ago and the landscape was pretty bare. It needed a lot of … Continue reading What We Choose To See

Slap A Label On It

I grew up eating Campbell’s soup. Many different kinds. Each kind of soup contains different combinations of ingredients. They never change. Chicken noodle always tastes the same. Beef vegetable always tastes the same. It may vary a slight bit based on the amount of water that is added to the condensed mixture, but for the most part, it remains the same. Campbell’s has to keep … Continue reading Slap A Label On It

A Place of Peace

Saturdays are sometimes the very best days to take a little time to unwind. The long work weeks have a way of draining me physically and mentally, but that is something I value. It is never a disappointment to come home from a long day to see the rewards. Warm coffee, a peaceful song in my headphones to drown out the noise of a fussy … Continue reading A Place of Peace

Slumber

Rest is something that I value more than words can explain! It is one of the greatest gifts within my life! I’m exaggerating, but seriously, I cannot wait to crawl into our comfy bed at times. After a long day or during a lazy day that allows a few hours of no movement, I’m game when it comes to covering up and forgetting about the … Continue reading Slumber

His Marvelous Art

Each day brings a new work of art. His majestic displays are always here, and then gone forever. Capturing those moments is a marvelous blessing. When the sun hits the world at just the right time and way, His work appears. I didn’t miss a few of those moments… Continue reading His Marvelous Art

Simplicity

It sometimes amazes me to the point of laughter listening to people come up with explanation to where we came from. The wild ideas that people have. The perfect beliefs that keep them motivated. The pride that secretes from their every pore and orifice. Don’t get me wrong, I have my own ideas and wonder, but to say for sure where we came from, to … Continue reading Simplicity
