If you’re ever caught in the rain, it’s only natural to seek shelter,
but what if you stopped and stood and turned your head to heaven,
and began to catch the rain in your mouth, taking in every last drop
This torrent is a gift from God after all, and sure it’s a lot to take in,
but why shy away from it? Just as plants are watered by the rain,
so too can we be.
Whether that rainfall is actual or metaphorical,
we have the power to take ownership of it, to use it for our betterment,
rather than our detriment, to enjoy life to its fullest and realest,
even when the rain falls
They say we live in darker times,
but… it’s Spring! the sun is shining,
and I am happy.
Maybe now we can forget the things of
winter, to allow our minds time to reset.
Let us contemplate the yellow daffodils of friendship.
May they bud and blossom in our hearts, minds, and souls.
Working together for the common
Living together as
Sweet honey produced by
such little creatures.
It’s no wonder they suffer,
when we refuse to slow down.
We are all like the waves,
we ebb and flow,
all our sandcastles are swept to sea,
yet there is peace in the coming and the going
of the waters
crashing waves/holding hands
We are content.
I am a star-gazer… a naval gazer
a tree hugger, and a God worshipper
I will meditate on you always
As long as my lungs have breath
For I am tenderly and meticulously made
in you and for you
Let celebrations rise to you,
now and forever,
for you are the Great God
of Mystery and Light.
All praise, hope, and love
Resides in you,
my God, the LORD of life.
