the frosty oak limbs

catching the first morning sun

point to rays of hope

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

I turned off the screens

and went for a walk by the wood.

Digital Detox.

Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.

The bower is gone.

There is nothing to hide her.

Yet she shows no fear.

buried half alive.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

if God stopped to chat?

The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

Man’s Best Friend

Our tenacious terrier mix, Sami. B- 2007 D- 12/30/21

She was just a stray.

But her spirit stole our hearts.

Good bye, Sami Jo.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
