Waiting for the Stars

018

The late afternoon sky resembled a

Tranquil and deep blue sea.

A hint of powder white clouds

Are floating by so effortlessly.

A crescent moon has settled on high

Like a heavenly nightlight in the sky.

The streaming sunlight continues to diminish

Being chased away by the encroaching darkness.

The air is cool as evening approaches

Reminding me to don on warmer clothes.

A quietness reigns in the brisk mountain air

With the soft chirping of a cricket choir.

I sat on the porch waiting in anticipation

To see all the stars that nighttime may bring.

Such a long time since I have seen

The stars at night so brightly shining;

Glowing and glittering in awesome wonder

While stretching above across the universe.

I shall sit and wait here in this still quietness

To see those twinkling gems before I rest.

Becky’s Haiku: Guide and Mad

014

This world tries to guide

Me in lies of “liberty”

Til I’m mad, you see.

For I become too

Confused to see God’s Truth and

What is right for me.

So I hide in a

Solitary place seeking

God and his sweet grace.

I have just attempted another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “guide” and “mad” and this time I wrote a three stanza poem. I am enjoying the challenges and I have no idea how he chooses the words to use.  If you like poetry and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/07/13/

God’s Promises in a RAINBOW

Trailing Rainbow

When a rainbow streaks the sky after the thunder and the rain

Is a time to remember that God keeps all his promises to the end:

Remember Jesus as the Son of God and Lord

And he will also remember us according to his word.

Always faithful: God’s love and faithfulness never end;

For once he’s with us, he remains as our Father and friend.

Individual and personal as he calls us each by name

While through the ages, his deep love remains the same.

Never forgetting: as we live a new life with Jesus,

God promises to never leave nor forsake us.

Blessings and kindnesses he will gladly show

By answering our prayers and giving us lasting hope.

Omnipresent: God’s unseen spirit is everywhere;

In our hearts and in the breeze that filters the air.

Whispering in the soft wind at night, he reminds us of his word

As we lay quietly in that stillness remembering he is Lord.

Living Forever

In the

Bountiful Blessings of God

Eternally free

Redeemed and resurrected from our life of

Transgressions and wickedness, to live forever

Young but loving, caring, and wise in His everlasting kingdom
