No More Death

No More Death
(no such thing)

On a hill, long long ago,
A poor man
Died
Once for all
Abolishing death for all

If you choose HIM

Carrying Eternity within
Himself
He allowed us to destroy
His earthly body

In order to recreate
A perfect body
A new man
Living forever in
Glory

Resurrected to wait
To return us
And all nature
To

Its original glory

The rocks, trees
Even grass
Will sing a
New song
No more death,
Decay

All will live
Every plant, human
Animal
In perfection’s glory
And new obedience,
To Worship!!

Spring’s Beauty

 

Yes, I am going a little stir crazy! Because of my age and health issues, I am weaker than most people. I have had a few rounds of chemotherapy and taken off my hormones so I still have issues of fatigue. Naturally, I have stayed at home to keep away from the corona virus. But I am getting a little tired of staying away from other people.

My husband in his kindness drove me around town so I could take a few pictures of the  beauty of this spring’s flowering trees. I don’t know exactly what kind some of them are, but I do recognize the tulip poplars and what we always called pink bud trees. God in the midst of troubles still delivers beauty in His natural world. Praise God!! I pray you have a very blessed day.

Greenway’s Spring

 

My husband and I went walking along our river’s greenway today(the most germ-free place we could find) and took a few photos. Spring is trying to start with a few wildflowers coming out. The grass is starting to really turn green along with the new little leaves on the trees. I like some of the beautiful old trees in winter without the leaves because you can see the actual forms of the limbs and branches. Hope you enjoy your day and take care of yourself. Praise God!

Spring’s Rites

 

Spring’s Rites

Rites of Spring
Ancient as time
Watching Her fling
Her flowers
As she climbs

Higher, Higher
Becoming stronger
As She ascends
Promising the Sun
He may run longer

Across the sky
Holding night at bay
Within his fiery grip
Lengthening each &
every day.

We rejoice
She has returned
Winter had brought
Cold’s drought
We felt as lovers spurned

From her warm embrace
Denied the beauty of
Her face
We now feel entitled,
Must we really battle?

Over these Rights of Spring
Are we forced to stand
Toe to toe
Cajole, implore, as if
With her we are now foes?

No, we had rather
Love
Receive freely the Rights we feel
Are our due
Release our peaceful doves

As Spring returns
our Happy Rights
To enjoy the sun,
Laugh in his warm embrace
lying aground within the sight

of multitudes, gatherings
of happy flower faces
brought forth amid
Spring’s joyful warmth
Nature’s once again reminder
of God’s great & gentle graces.

I couldn’t help taking a few pictures from around town of the first signs of spring. The moss is turning greener, plants are now floating on the water in our wetlands and the animals have started daring to stick their heads out. Even the birds, a few ducks and Canadian geese, have started returning. I always love this time of year. It’s almost like feeling a return of life after the cold of winter. Have a blessed day. Praise God!!

Spring Rites

I could not resist! I like to take photographs along our greenway system where I live. A few of the spring flowers are out in bloom and there are mounds of heavy-headed groups of honeysuckle. The air is full of their wonderful smells.

The trail winds over a river and along a creek. I even got to enjoy the company of a fine-feathered friend. Hope you can enjoy your spring and try to get outside to enjoy the natural sights our Heavenly Father has created for our pleasure.

Your Day

Dear Lord Jesus, This is your day. All over the world people will be celebrating that the tomb was empty. It’s your resurrection day! Praise God! Thank you for taking my place on that cross. Thank you for giving up your eternal throne of glory to come down here and save all of us from the most powerful to the least of us. Thank you for wanting all of us.

Bless you Lord for the beauty of your face and the beauty of your great heart. Thank you for your great power and authority. Thank you for wanting to give us a new heaven and new earth. We wait in anticipation for the redemption of our bodies also. Again, Lord Jesus thank you. In your holy name I pray Amen!!christasgod2praisegif2

Spring. . . Finally!

 

This winter we have had a record breaking amount of grey skies and rain. I mean record breaking so much so we were all getting cabin fever from having to stay inside. My little grandson is autistic, and one of his favorite things to do is go outside and play in his backyard and on his swing set. However, with all the rain, he was caged inside. His mother is really, really glad to see the sunshine.

Yesterday was sunny. All the pink bud and red bud trees are out in full bloom along with all the fruit trees. They’re all beautiful!! Glad to see the sunshine.

Hope everyone has a blessed day, and try to get out and enjoy good weather wherever you live whenever you can. Praise God for all His blessings!
