Dusty Road

You say it’s ok
But I want to believe you
You say you love me
I want to receive it too


But I come from a dusty road
Some trees along the way
Offering support
But some decided not to stay


The clock has stopped
So I can’t see
How long been low on gas
The loss of time perplexes me


The gas isn’t my life expectancy
But fuel of hope
What started as destiny
Quickly lost its wide scope


I know others have dusty roads
But mine seems so dry
I choose stick shift to experience life
But you question why


I try to stop asking why
I’ll keep driving
Where the rubber meets the road
Where it’s ok my history was my striving

Trust the Journey

Don’t tarry

Life can be scary

But trust the driver

He knows where he is going

Somewhere we have never been


His heart is a safe haven

He provided food by the raven

He multiplied the flour in a jar

Why don’t you get in the car?


Don’t be afraid of the sharp turns

Or the blaring horns

Or the speed you must go

To reach your destiny on time

In the Warmth of the Night

In the warmth of the night
I can hear the katydids
Playing their song
In the wee hours of the night


I love summer nights
Where the air feels heavy
But more comfortable
Than the day


When many people have gone off to bed
Sleeping in their warm comforters
Throughout the world
It’s just you and me love


Staring at this moon together
We know it’s late
But we love being together
In the thick but welcoming summer air


I know you are going away
Like a caboose ready to ride
The straight and narrow
Please don’t forget me


I know I’ll never forget
Your half-moon smile
And twinkling star eyes
Summer will always be in my heart

Scripture Poem

For God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear
It’s not the healthy who need a doctor but the sick
Know this: the Lord takes personal care of the faithful
The Lord will hear
A bruised reed will not break
He will not snuff a smoldering wick


Promises of the Bible
Are awesome
Gos, You have no rival
You make the ways of the world look dumb

Dear Friend

I know you suffer
But I am here for you
You know I suffer too
But don’t let go


We are here for each other
Like blessing lilacs in the spring
Your smile is my favorite thing
Let the blessings flow


I know you have cancer
Like a gnat that will never leave you alone
You know I have anxiety of the unknown
But trust I God to lead through every high and low


I am sorry I cause you grief
I want you to know that I care
I pray for you to let go of everything you bear
I know God loves us so

Where Time Goes

As the wind blows
Where time goes
No one knows


I just want peace
As trouble I release
As soaring geese


The valleys may be dry
No rain from the sky
But your heart answers the why


I don’t care if I have the answered equations
Numbers can cause frustrations
If the solution comes with allegations


Where’s my hope in humanity
It comes with affinity
As I hope in the divinity


Let go of the sorrow and pain
And try to refrain
From getting out of your lane


We all have our path to tread
So as you wake up from bed
Don’t forget how you found truth when our hearts bled

My Quotes on Persevering

Here are some quotes that came to my spirit this today. I hope it encourages you.

“It’s in the waiting that you are truly strengthened. And it’s all about how you choose to wait. For example, when you wait for a train you can either complain, constantly look at your watch, or reflect on how far you’ve come. The choice is always yours.” – Carly


”Just because a story starts off good it doesn’t mean it will end good. And just because a story starts off bad it doesn’t mean it will end bad. It doesn’t matter how it begins, all the matters is how you preserve in the pages in between to determine how it will end.” – Carly
