GIFT OF THE SUNSET

695

Gently, softly, this day concludes

In twilight’s glowing interlude.

Future endeavors laid to rest;

Tomorrow will appear soon enough.

Over the mountains and sea, the sun has journeyed;

Finally resting upon the windswept prairie.

Thankfulness fills the mind and heart;

Happy contentment it does impart.

Every blessing today received;

Sent from the Lord who watches and sees.

Under the canopy of a pink streaked sky,

Nestles the sun on the brink of encroaching night;

Seeping  lower, dipping down.

Evening soon clouds the darkened horizon.

Time to rest while wrapped in the cloak of deep night

Knowing the sun will dawn at morning’s light.

Pressing Forward

039

Stepping towards each tomorrow,

Set aside sorrow;

Let hope reign for the future.

Days and nights will soon follow

Beneath sun’s shadow

And the pale moon’s faint glimmer.

Let joy enter that hollow

While peace, like marrow,

Fill the heart’s deepest chamber.

Time’s JOURNEY

092903_1606[00]

Joy, love, and peace faithfully and patiently pursued;

Overcoming despair while inequality, and every adversity are forever  squelched and overruled.

Undergoing an enlightened transformation of the mind and heart.

Relying on the love and spirit of Christ who promises to never depart.

Never giving up but firmly taking hold of

Enduring and everlasting hope.

Yesterday and each new day gently fade

While graciously paving the way

For that ever hopeful and eternal

Tomorrow.

A Perfect Day

014

A perfect day is

One spent with the Lord

By praying and reading his word.

Seeing him in the glowing sunbeam

And hearing him whisper in the breeze.

Feeling his warmth surround your spirit and soul

As you quietly wander along the road.

Seeing him in the beauty of all creation;

In the forest, the shimmering sea, and the lofty mountains.

It is hearing him in the songbirds’ sweet melodies

And in the rushing currents of the river stream;

When you quietly sit and gladly take a rest

Letting this day heal you with gentle peacefulness.

It is not worrying about the duties of tomorrow

Or regretting the past in deep sorrow.

It is not worrying about those who don’t understand or don’t like you

Because they don’t really know your inner beauty or unique attributes.

Instead it is a day of  thankfully remembering

That the Lord’s love for you is never ending.

It is a day of enjoying many precious moments

Unhurried and allowing time to slow down a bit.

It is not  a day of fear or dread;  nor of stressing

But instead a time of seeing hidden blessings.

Hearing a favorite tune wafting through the air

And suddenly realizing an answered prayer.

The perfect day is one set aside just for you and the Lord;

Relishing in his presence, his love, and the hope he gives forevermore.

Friday Verse Journal Matthew 6:25-27

014

“Do not worry,”

The Lord quietly told me.

“Remember I am God, the Lord Almighty.

Do not worry,”

The Lord comforted the spirit within me,

“and I am your friend for eternity.

“Do not worry,”

The Lord continued to comfort me,

“and do not fear the darkness in the eve

When the sun drops below the distant trees

And the night dawns darkening the vast sky

While you try to sleep until the morning light.

I will stay in your heart and forever by your side;

And I am always with you as your life guide.

So do not worry

When rain and clouds are all you see.

As you awake peering out the window

And see in dismay what you fear most.

Remember instead and do not fear

I am with you; I am here.

Focus on now; focus on today

Lean on me as I lead you the way.

Do not worry about tomorrow

Or be troubled and filled with sorrow.

Let me walk with you and be your friend

Today, and every tomorrow into everlasting.”

Matthew 6:25-27 (Holy Bible New International Version):

“Therefore do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes?  And look at the birds of the air. They do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one  of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
