symbols of change
butterfly and dragonfly
are popular ones
I defied the odds like the
fat little bumblebee
June 30, 2016
Did you know that the bumblebee should be incapable of flying? Scientists don’t know how they do it.
I have gained weight in the last two years, and I have not lost it. But I have had good changes in my life too. I am surviving. It may not be pretty, but I am surviving in this world.
*These photos were taken over the course of 3 years and are not of the same caterpillar/butterfly.
waiting for gentle breeze
Do you ever pray for direction?
How do you decide where to go, when you’re not sure where to go?
Can a broken vessel serve God
Can it hold rain water
Sent to moisten the sod
Can a broken vessel glisten
And bring forth light
Can it make hurried people listen
Can I stop hearts
And mend broken thinking
Can I pull carts
Loaded with good will
And peace for all men
Fates- can I unseal
Can I pull men out from the fire
Dust off the ashes
And show them Godly desire
A worm encased lies
Before me starts a process
And comes out a butterfly
Do you ever wonder if you are good enough to serve God?
God has used beggars, thieves, murderers and even a donkey to relay his messages.
Beauty in the Garden
Vines slowly grow ‘round the angel
Sitting so sweetly still in the garden
Orange flowers caress her pedestal
And the purple flowers dance before her
Butterflies flutter by lazily
Beetles scuttle by unnoticed by her
For she is stone and unmoved
By the beauty before her
This is my little flowerbed. This poem was actually inspired by this statue and the flowers around it.
Have you ever wrote a poem about something that was right outside your front window?
