Reach for the Deep (not the shallows) Inside each soul Lie such uncharted depths Deep, Sometimes still Sometimes they flow Quickly, rapidly Furiously But nevertheless Permanently present Reach for those depths Within Waiting to be known Discovered Desiring, needing to be filled That burning hunger Unfulfilled, unsatiated Except by life’s truths Raise your eyes Toward heavenly skies Answers can be shown Just waiting to flow, Covering each, every Truly seeking heart Deeper levels to life Can and will start Only God can fill Your empty depths!
I managed to get a couple of shots of the beautiful, white crepe myrtles before the heavy rain knocked off their blooms. Hope you enjoy. Below is a poem for Saturday.
Purity White, Gleaming, dazzling As the sun blazes Giving out life Yet even brighter Your precious face Beams Without boundaries Knowing no limits Your Love lifts each & All Upward to share in The glory of life Originally intended Oh, Lord Jesus Send your glorious Pure White Love, Eternity’s Purity, My way, each & Every day Offset satan’s darkness We wait with eager hearts For your glorious return!!
Praise God and have a great day!
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!
Mid-Week Haiku Heaven came to earth Christ put on our darkened sin To make us pure light!!
It is getting into the drier part of the summer so the water in the river is down lower than usual, still just as pretty just more shallow. Here’s a poem and have a blessed day!
Clear Waters Clear waters flow Revealing for all to know What lies beneath their surface Every swimming creature, pebble Even every hard stone To everyone is shown Thru its moving, reflective face Christ’s heart is the same To us, He longs, desires To reveal His Royal Name His innermost being But we must be willing To accept the truth Waiting to be seen So take the time to look Inside His written book Those scriptures that reveal His heart, about us how He truly feels Beneath the surface of His Living Waters Flows the glory of your own life!
The part of the south I live in gets so green and lush, and I can never resist a beautiful day to take pictures. We finally got some relief from the heat where I live so I rode along the greenway as I often do. Don’t know the names of all the wildflowers, but they are still blooming although for a day or two because it has been so dry with no rain, they did droop just a little. This monster of a tree is just that, a monster. It is huge. I can’t tell if it is more than one tree growing close together or if it is old and just split at its base.
The river is lower from less rain and in some spots is only a few inches deep. In the shallow parts, the water is so clear you can see every stone and fish in it. It’s lovely! May God, the Creator of all this beauty, bless your day!
