A Yellow Flower Ribbon



Tying a yellow ribbon

around an old oak tree

sending a message to Heaven

you are still the one for me


Sending you hugs and kisses

from my heart to yours

living each moment

singing like a bird


Feeling you in the wind

your smile in the sun shine

thankful for each day

that you are mine


See all the yellow ribbons

that are being sent in my heart

loving you forever

knowing we will never part


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Healed: Challenge – Triumphant – Thursday


Psalm 30:2 New International Version (NIV)

Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.



Sitting high upon the perch

calling out to the Lord

the loss is great

I can’t sing a chord


Climbing higher

looking to the clouds

is my love lost

chirping really loud


The Lord spoke to me

 love is not lost

your mate is with me

I paid the cost


During this time of turmoil

begin singing again

do unto others

you will be reunited with your friend


Till that time

I have given you a task

spread kindness and love

do as I ask


Healed in that moment

the bird began to sing

tales of redemption

taking away death’s sting


Never again 

would there be such despair

God’s love healed him

the heart had been repaired

Comfort: Voices From Beyond


I heard your voice today

from Heaven so far away

comforting me still

as my faith begins to sway


Tears flowing 

down my cheeks

missing you

all these weeks


A kind word

gift of a book

of words I need to hear

smile with your look


Knowing you 

are not far away

sending a message of love

faith has a way


Time will pass

love will never die

you are always with me

love does not lie


Praying for you everyday

God’s love carries me through

our separation is temporary

love death can never undo

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

Imagine: Praying for London


mom rose garden april 1

Imagine if you can

A world filled with love

A world filled with kindness

Imagine a world with no evil

A world without hate

Where people love one another

A world where people communicate

God loves us all

Of that there is no doubt

Pray for all who suffer tonight

Because of another person’s hate

**Praying for London tonight
