Easter Sonrise!

Easter
New life,
Spring’s eternal promise
Strives to not ever
Leave us
Having only just to guess.

After a cold sleep
And winter’s death
Sweet Spring always brings
Earth’s bright regeneration
Our Hopes it never shuns.

Miniature blades of new grass,
Erupt from underneath
A hardened earth’s brown crust
In delicate tendrils, their fresh
Green beauty they each to all bequeath

Struggling, bursting through
Dark, tight skins of bark,
each trembling newborn leaf
sings of a perfect life renewed
as tree limbs reach to heaven.

New Babes come forth
On land, sky and the sea
Joy vibrating in sky’s air
Showing a Creator’s Power
To cause each new life to be.

I do not think
(I may be wrong)
No chance seems it to me
That Earth’s spring brings
each a new life within
a freshly resurrected King!

His frail dead body
Hanging on a lifeless tree
In shame and
ignorance of man
shows God’s always
most Immaculate of Plans.

Eternity on display
Upon a cross
Sent to cleanse
Destroy forever
Each soul’s darkest dross.

It cannot be by
a Mere Coincidence
That within each Earth’s Spring,
Fair Easter brings a Christ’s new life
Fulfilling our deepest need.

Thus through His death
we all receive
a heaven’s eternal life.
Is this not man’s most
Heartfelt song,
a bright Rebirth,
an end at last so final
to this decay of earth
in dark and woeful strife?

May you have a very blessed Easter. May the presence and love of Christ cover your day. Praise God!!

Re-creation

A simple plan
Twas always meant to be
Not coming from earth’s man
Involved land, sky & sea

A universe restricted
Only by power’s hands
Inspired by divinity’s
Heaven and its love of man

Twill be again someday
A brave new world
With clear, fresh eyes we’ll see
That always this was meant to be

Re-perfected, re-created
Brought back to original glory
Within a Holy Book
Is openly declared this story

Pray, do not miss
Your one and only chance
To live in unbelievable glory
Do not miss even a tiniest glance

A new Heaven and
A completely new Earth
Way of life unknown since
Its first original birth

No more darkness
No more sin, death or pain
All in love is given
Purely for man’s eternal gain

In love He reaches
With fingers so gentle
To lead and persuade
To live within His Love’s cascades

Pouring, showering
Us each day
His profound love
Even as He laid

His life out on a cross
He did it for His world
All within so blind and lost
Within a tomb was laid His pearl

Until it burst forth
From underneath cold death
Willing now to give rebirth
to all souls who ever walked this earth

Each, animal, plant and man
Will be rebirthed to a new life
Lead by the gentlest of hands
All and each removed from any strife

Unbelievable beauty
Unsurpassed joy
Both beyond my mere words to say
will fill for all and forever
each gloriously bright and newest day!

No More Death

artforlust

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.

The Eternal Now

God is eternal and unchanging, always with us even when we are not aware of His presence. Unseen physically, but not unfelt. You can be as close to Him as you desire. He will never turn you away. He will be closer than a brother. His love is absolute, deep, passionate, profound, unchanging and perfect. He is with you every second and every heartbeat. He is your Eternal Now.

An Eternal Now

An Eternal Now
Looming on the horizon
Getting closer as I view
My life and thoughts.
Beauty unsurpassed
Intertwined within this life.

Lingering to watch
And hope for such
A life
Of pure joy and wonder
Unexperienced before.

it is Always Today in His
World, God’s level of existence,
Never out of his sight and care,
This Eternal Now!

 

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.

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!
