Reach for the Deep

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!!

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!

Clear Waters

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!

Lush and Green

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!
