Coping with Impossible Situations

This is a reblog my post that I wrote on August 29, 2017. Prayers for all and have a wonderful day!

Clouds 1

Storms come through

excessive wind and rain

impossible conditions

coming in like a train

 

Some people are good

ready to lend a helping hand

others are evil

taking advantage of the storm’s band

 

Impossible situations

difficult decisions to make

critics abound

praying for God’s grace

 

Finally it happens

a rash of good deeds

showing love and kindness

everyone taking the lead

 

Prayers are answered

hope is spread

food, clothing, and shelter

God is not dead

 

Impossible situations

God made us for these

faith, hope, and love

for these we are lead

 

Impossible situations

healing has begun

restoring communities

one by one

Hope: Antidote for Difficult Times

sun on river mountain 1

Panic spreads

throughout the land

a ravaging disease

fear of touching a hand

 

Fear is vicious

taking away people’s power

contagious darkness spreading

despair grows by the hour

 

The sun rises

it is a new day

an antidote grows

light is on the way

 

Rising out of the fear

through the light shines hope

love fights the fear

we learn to cope

 

Time passes

the disease appears to have no end

loving each other

we rely on friends

 

Hope is the antidote

causing the fear to bend

darkness is wiped out

Light wins in the end

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.

 

IMG_3680

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

tea

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

ne

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
