A Potter’s Clay Once soft & compliant Lying now Resistant, hard On a cold, sterile ground in broken shards pieces of shattered clay, damaged jars Then comes those Potter’s Hands Warm & ready Full of good plans They reach out to lift And return to brokenness The challenging gift Of to serve a purpose Adding water to soften A dried-out skin Once more He slowly begins to win A softened compliance Using His own Strength & Will Slowly is He able to fill Restore to a fresh new life Each worn out, damaged pot From the roughened, sharp edges He may receive bruises, a few cuts Lose some drops of blood But in the midst of His pain Will come forth a deeper flood Of love, mercy, compassion For the brokenness He repairs So now with newly scarred hands He removes a crusty dirt’s thick layers Revealing at last a clean new creation Returning to it an original beauty & of its dark uselessness, an ablation!
A Big Deal To an orphan such As I One of the biggest deals I can spy Is For someone to desire Cannot lift them higher Than to want to be My parent And that is exactly What God, the Holy Lord Creator Wants to be For each & everyone You are able to see Wants to be your Father Daddy, Papa Wants every soul to gather Under His wings forever For all of eternity No small trickle Wave after wave rushing Toward you pushing Torrential flood Of perfection’s love So step into the flow Take the time to Get to know The One & Only God Who loves you the most It’s the biggest, best deal This world will ever see!
I was trying to catch the last of this summer’s wildflowers on our greenway system down by the river. The drier season of Fall has set in so the flowers are starting to fade away, but there’s always next Spring! I hope you have a blessed and good Saturday.
Core Essence The warmth starts Purity enters the room Your core essence Enters my heart Love, joy Contentment Such as I have never known On this, Our ball of Rolling Stone Glistening, sparkling Shining Literally almost blinding Filling me full Imparting an evening’s lull To all chaos or pain Is this what it will be like Or I suspect even better In your forever’s paradise? To let loose, unshackle the fetters Of all of earth’s dark chaos? Then come Lord God Come now! I lift a holy shout Pour out your Spirit On any & all who try to crowd Around your feet Attempting obedience to keep Protect & bless But give us strength to Stand all horrific tests Of the gift, this precious faith, So freely & willingly You give!
God will come as close and be as personal with you as you will allow. Take time to enjoy His company!
We got a break in the rain today so I pulled out the old bicycle and did my usual ride on our greenway system. Today was different in that there were fewer people out because it was still cloudy and looked like it might rain at any second, but the ride was worth the risk. It was nice to not have the sun out. It made it so much cooler even though, as it usually is here in the southern United States, the humidity was very high. It makes the air feel sometimes like walking around in a warm, thick blanket you wish you could get rid of but unfortunately cannot.
Most of our regular walkers must have stayed in because of the rain threat so for most of my ride I had the greenway pretty much to myself. It was very relaxing, and I shared the morning with mostly a few stately old trees and wildflowers still clinging on through to the end of August. It was very peaceful and quiet. Nature’s beauty can have a calming effect if you will allow it to. Thank You and Praise You, God, for making the world so beautiful just for our pleasure! Below is a quick poem that came in the middle of my bike ride. Have a blessed day!!
Nature will talk If you will take the time To listen Allow yourself a walk Among the unspoken words She's anxious to say Always attempting To improve your day!
