rambling child of God…

November 3, 2015


I won’t cry.
The answers are not clear.

Fear is there.
Some things are unavoidable.

My wildest dreams could never have included this again.
Again, what is “this?”

It’s a crazy time.
I feel so far away.

But that is my fault.
Not His.

As I do every day,
I need Him now.

I need Him to hold me up.
The strength only He can provide is my hope.

So I sit here.

Like the clouds…

The clouds in the sky
Remind me of the roads in life
Ever changing

As the Lord places them
So He places me
He knows where I’m going

Even when
Like the clouds
Transition is certain

Life is good
His ways are good
I will stay in His hands

Like the clouds

At the beach…

Grey skies
Blue skies
The sun won’t decide

So many people
Along for the ride

Big kids
Small kids
So much fun had for all

I’m sure I’m the lone
One not having a ball

The beach is alright
If the tide’s not high
And I can take time to write

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I don’t hate the beach entirely. There is much beauty to be seen. The waves are a majestic example of God’s power. The seashore is absolutely His handiwork. I can sit and be in awe of this wonder for hours.

What I don’t enjoy is the sand in my face and the stickyness I feel whenter sitting on a blanket in the sand or after emerging from the salty water. I do enjoy watching the kids have fun…That’s why I am here after all.

There is joy in seeing others have fun. There is joy in casual conversation with a friend.

The sun seems to have finally won the battle with the fog…at least temporarily. Young ones play together in the sand building – or trying to build – a sand castle before the tide rolls in and devours it.

Oh! The tide just won! Start over. 🙂

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Lifeguards stand at alert
Parents chat
The sound of children laughing

Waves crashing down
Dads finding shells
Rebuilding castles in the sand

Sweet music of God’s creation

20 years…

Whirlwind? No.
Fairytale? No.
Wonderful? Most definitely!

We’ve laughed.
We’ve cried.
Done a little yelling.
And done silence too.
We’ve grown.

I am so thankful.
God blessed me.
He blessed us.
He has brought us through.
He brought us together.

I do.
I will.
I am…

Looking forward to the next 20 years.

With you.

In the presence of others
There is reservation

Observation, reception

The “un-love” poem…aka “Poetry #10”

You think you’re entitled
Yet we’re just the same
Wrath unbridled
Don’t play that game

Over the phone
Or face to face
The “customer is always right”
Not in my place!

Use your manners
For goodness sakes.

So…tonight is the third day that I’ve missed in the poetry challenge. It’s hard to think of a poem every day!

Tomorrow I will have a notebook with me so I can jot down ideas. Usually I just write as it comes to me. Maybe I’m just over thinking it. Maybe I should read more poetry…plenty of blogs to choose from!

Continued luck to all who are participating in NaPoWriMo!

Assignment to write
Ideas elude me

I want to keep up
With the others

There’s no flow

My thoughts today
Not bright

I will pray
Will come to me

God’s act

Truth. Just the truth.
Not a caricature of yourself.

Don’t tell me what I want to hear
Or what you think is so

Honesty is all I need
And it’s all I’ll give as well

I thank the Lord
He brought me you

Alone I am no more
