Happy Easter

 You rose

And are 

Always there

To remind me

Of Your Presence

Even if

Or when

I’m blinded

By earthly falsehoods

He is alive

Within me

More than


On any day

Especially today

Saturday, March 30, 2024



Is the beast

I’m fighting

Right now

It’s not


I’d be

Seeing again

So soon


Come find me


Thursday, March 28, 2024


 I saw something on Instagram last week, and its rocked me to my core. I wish I knew who said it. It said “instead of being well known, strive to be someone worth knowing”  I’ve had a preoccupation with the former and not the latter. Maybe my therapist and I will have a chat about it, but a simple sentence is reshaping how I want to live. My soul is undergoing renovation. Maybe we as humans need a total gut job or just some minor tweaks. 

Reno work

Is an ongoing process

I may actually enjoy

Now the my brain

Is receptive

To realignment

The smallest realization

Yields the biggest result

Country days


Come say hello

So I can enjoy

A long walk

Through the grass

In the trees

And around 

The meadows

Let me see

If I find

The daffodils

Popping up 

In unexpected places

R and R

A little 
R and R
In a place
That brings
My mind
A peace
That can’t
Be manufactured 
Foggy covered peaks
And cool rain
The backdrop
And a fire
Roars indoors

 My joy for today

Rainy days

Lazy days

Word searches 

Good books


Your turn?

Monday, March 25, 2024


 Holy Week

May I appreciate

And understand

A sacrifice

I’m glad

I’ve never

Had to contemplate


Thank you

For what

You do

Even when

I fail

To comprehend

Your motives

Love yourself and one another

Saturday, March 23, 2024


 God determines

When I bloom

When I prosper

And when

My bum

Needs to be

Sat down

I used 

To despise


Now I welcome

Its presence

With a newfound appreciation



I don’t know if you’re teaching me more or if I’m just listening. I’m not fighting. I’m being still, and letting your dominion be my haven. I’ve known more pain in the recent months, but I’ve known more peace too. I’ve shared some here, but not gone into detail because right now I don’t have answers. That is okay for now. Discovery is a process. I don’t know if God gives us more than we can handle. All I know is as long as He is with me, I will not ask. 

Oneness with You

Is enough

More than enough

Even when

My humanity

Takes hold

And runs amuck 

Of center

And serenity

Friday, March 22, 2024


 A sunny day

To greet me

A hearty breakfast

To savor

And a friendship

Of twenty years

To treasure

Finding the joys

Of life

While the 

Tangy sorbetto 


My tongue

With otherworldly bliss

I’m getting better daily. I thank you for your love. Could you intercede for a friend in need of love and support right now. Thank you.

 In your light

Darkness is no longer

A damper

To the soul

Your goodness

Is the warmest

And coziest throw

The chill

And icy nature

Of outside forces

Is no match

For the power

Exuded in 

One look

Tuesday, March 19, 2024


 Learning how to rest

Even if I don’t want to

Lord I’m listening

But my 

Follow through

Is missing

Monday, March 18, 2024

Love you all

 I may be out of commission for a bit. Medical procedure today. If you’d grant me intercession in your prayers, I’d appreciate it. Love you all.

I’m learning 
How to give
To self
As much as
I give to others
I decided to 
Grant it to
The one
Who needed
It most
To survive
How to be
To be selfless

Friday, March 15, 2024


 A long nap


It’s what

I needed 

The body

Finally said 

I’ve got you 

And take care 

Of me

As much 

As you 

Do others

Cherry blossom

 The cherry blossoms

Call me to grateful reflection

Signifying the change of seasons

And differing outlooks

That implore me

To breathe deeper

Seek truth

And grant forgiveness

Whether it is warranted

As the child of God

And a disciple

To the Son

My judgment 

Is not in humanity

It’s in

The triumphant 

Glory of The Deity

Who claimed my soul

For His own



The gift you are giving me now

Is this

I no longer

Want to know why

The one word

That caused more pain

Than can be said

Why I’m the way

I am

Is no longer relevant

It just is

I accept it

For what it is

And questions

If there

Are left unanswered 

Because that 

Is answer enough

Right now

 Out the door

The sunshine

And green grass

Mix to make

An early spring parade

Where the early blooms

Arrive to display

Growth and grace

In a sturdy vase

Known as 

Mother Nature’s

Early birthday wishes

To a frosty world

Needing a warming glow


 I haven’t done of these in awhile. 

Life is hard

Life is great

Because amidst the pain

Is purpose

The silver lining

That glimmers

In darkness

How may I pray for you today?

 Playing in the dirt

Picking rocks out

Of hard clay

Teaches about


It burns

The muscle groups

Into subliminal bliss

Masked as popcorn


Providing relief

It arrives

With such

Accurate precision

Monday, March 11, 2024


 Equip me

To find joy

In the spaces

You provide 

Soften my heart


And willing

To be a willing participant

To the purpose

That is made

For me

Sunday, March 10, 2024



And in pain

Is where I’m at

Right now

Don’t feel bad

For me

In this place

God is teaching

Me how

To be grateful

In spite

Of what I 

Feel right now

It’s a gift

I’ve never fully 


Or have



Friday, March 8, 2024


 I never thought

I’d be envied

But I’ve gotten

So many compliments 

On the writing gift

It’s as if

I just pluck words

Out of thin air

And make magic

Happen when

The thoughts


The ratty tees

And sweats

Are my uniform

And it is

A blessing

To call the shots

A privilege

I never 


I’d possess

Thursday, March 7, 2024



Give me strength

To continue

To use the gift

The courage

To be honest

Even when

I hurt 

My own feelings


To push past


And joy

When my life

Doesn’t look

Like I’d imagined 



You’re remaking me

In your image

And I’ve not realized

When pride is laid down

Work is done

In crafting perfection

I never understood what Your purpose was, but now I start to see what is happening. Your desires for me are bigger than I have for myself. I need to trust that I’m capable to do what you see for me. And you’re doing it while I’m clothed in old sweats and a Longhorn t-shirt.  I don’t need my legs to write. I just need a willing spirit and the talent that has always been there. I doubted the talent. I still do. I’m writing because it’s what you demand. 

Love yourself and one another

 The vessel

Of truth





The spirit

Is alive

And active

Within my being

Tuesday, March 5, 2024


 Had a doctor’s appointment yesterday. 

Here’s what I learned

I need the hard truth. 

I need the facts

Answers will come when I need them

CP is static. That’s great. I can’t reverse the damage it did.  It did damage. The amount, I will never know. I really don’t want to know. When the doc said, at least you can walk. He’s right. Walking is a privilege. I may tire easily, but that’s okay. I just want to be grateful for what I can do. I compared myself against a world I can’t identify with. 

Acceptance comes when you don’t know it will. 

Love yourself and one another.

 Peace is here

When my heart

Can’t understand

The delays

In what 

I wish

In what

I desire

Questions come

But I won’t fret

Fearing what

Is unknown

Is antithetical

To faith

And faith

In You

Is reason


To stand down

And bring the knees

To kneel

Sunday, March 3, 2024


 Singing into the 



In silence

My voice

Is heard

When movement

Is initiated

By you

Friday, March 1, 2024

Thank you

 Thank you all for your prayers and love. Right now I’m in a cycle of exercise followed by sleep to alleviate the discomfort. I may not reply to all. I’m grateful for all of you. 

Tell me something good that happened this week?

Favorite purchase?

Any good books?

Thankful for you
