Happy Heavenly Father’s Day

DocFile (4)

 

Our Heavenly Father

loves us so dear

guiding us through life

He is always near

 

Gently pressing us forward

with containers of life’s lessons to learn

giving us the gift of grace

no matter what we earn

 

I pray to God

every moment of each day

thanking Him for loving me

providing for me in every way

 

To my Heavenly Father

thank you for the love you give

I will wish you Happy Father’s Day

as long  as I live

Thoughts of the Heart

petrified forest wood april 14

Petrified wood

bottled up for all time

turning into stone

preserving history like a chime

 

Life can be a challenge

keeping feelings inside

turning our hearts to stone

till we are not alive

 

Sharing our thoughts

with one another

heals our souls

feeling with some other

 

God grants us a day

healing our wounds anew

talking to other people

see things from another view

 

Kindness to each other

helps sad feelings go away

listening to each person

hugging them along the way

 

Our hearts are able

to feel immense joy

when we listen and give

solutions to employ

 

Love one another

each and every day

communicate love

on this Happy Father’s Day

Blossoming of the Soul

DocFile (2)

Meditating on the canyon

observing the day anew

renewal of the soul

blossoming in the new

 

Reflecting upon life

bright colors and hues

the soul is nourished

becoming part of the view

 

God’s beautiful creation

telling stories to my soul

blossoming my faith

with love of ole

 

Relaxed and calm

filled with gratitude

beginning the day

with a wonderful attitude

Honeysuckle in the Spring

Honeysuckle blooming closeup

 

There are honeysuckles blooming

in the early spring

filled with life

part of nature’s ring

 

The circle of life

continues with each bloom

renewing our souls

like yarn on a loom

 

Our faith grows

with each passing year

blossoming our souls

listening to hear

 

God’s creation is awesome

sparkling each day

filling our hearts with wonder

observing nature’s way

 

Nurturing our souls

with each sweet blossom smell

filled with gratitude

for the beauty of nature as well

Geyser of Emotion

DocFile (1)

A geyser erupts

sending water high in the air

people in the stands

continuing to stare

 

Molten lava with water underground

creates an eruption

when it heats up

sending water all around

 

Our emotions are like this geyser

erupting in the heat of the moment

expressing intense thoughts

and causing a commotion

 

We are able to control this

eruption of heat

saying a prayer

that we will not be beat

 

Thinking before speaking

can be so very hard

creating thoughtful communication

instead of thoughtless lard

 

Eruption of emotions

will continue to cease

when we consider our words

communicate with peace

Beautiful flowers

Alligator Hole In One

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

The alligator lies in the sun

with deep brown eyes

relaxing on the golf course

watching the golf balls fly by

 

One golfer hits a ball

a little too close

totally unaware

of an alligator’s boast

 

He goes to retrieve the ball

the alligator’s head in the air

thinking he can hit the alligator

with a snare

 

The alligator sees the golfer

swishes his tail up high

hitting the lost ball

in the air going wide

 

The golf ball flies through the air

for a total hole in one

The alligator rests his head

again in the sun

Imagination : The Rule of the Day

snoopy bicycle clinton

Snoopy flies his plane

high in the air

paragon of times gone by

when cartoons had a flair

 

The plane flies over the world

Snoopy with a smile on his face

having fun imagining

being a World War 1 flying ace

 

Imagination is a paragon

to a foreign land

where kindness rules

people hand in hand

 

Snoopy is a symbol

to people every where

fun and happiness

imagination to bear

 

Have a good laugh today

let worry and strife fade away

Smile at other people

Imagination is the way

The Blue Heron

blue heron at reservoir overlook natchez trace

The blue heron

a paragon of dignity

so easy to see

an example to humanity

 

He stands in the water

with a cap so blue

admiring the sunrise

the day is anew

 

God created him a home

so perfect in every way

providing for his needs

paragon for the day

 

A lesson for us

to be content

standing tall with dignity

not to lament

Tree Stands Firm

rocky springs tree april 28

A tree sits high

above the ground

struggling to survive

the soil is gone from around

 

The summer rains come

each and everyday

thunderstorms light the sky

washing the soil away

 

God gave us a soul

planted firmly in the ground

trusting in Him

to keep us abound

 

Treating one another

with kindness, dignity, and respect

prevents our souls from wasting

away per dissect

 

Loving one another

closes the puncture

everyday in life

as we pass through its  juncture
