  • another rainy day….

    I have decided to be bad today…
    I am not going to start my day with my usual proper breakfast…
    I am having a cup of black coffee, and a piece of strawberry cheesecake(danish).

    Why?
    because it is a gloomy gray day,
    and I feel discouraged that no one celebrates Christ the way they ought to…
    with their whole heart and appreciation…

    no matter how much they profess Christ,
    how much do they ‘feel’ Christ?
    How much do they feel the events that happened 2014 years ago?

    I am feeling discouraged…
    I am in a ‘bummer mood’. :-( Sorry.

    [edit: Never discount God... He always sends just what I need... He sent two little wrens
    that visited my porch today and brought just that little bit of cheer, that little bit of sunshine,
    that little reminder, that God is always near to the downhearted. :-) ]

  • Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 
    He is not here: for he is risen

    ~Christ the Lord is risen today, Ah-ah-ahl le luia ~

  • The weather here today proclaims the solemnity of the day.
    It is a very somber gray day today.

    These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

    4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

    The heavens are weeping tonight.

  • Our Savior in the tomb…

    Today’s poem:  Ghosts

    Ghosts
    that haunt us
    ghosts
    that taunt us
    scepters of the past
    portents of the future
    ghosts may be real
    or they may not
    perhaps only as real
    as we give them aught.

  • Steeples

    Gracing horizons over all the world
    the markers
    places of worship

    Steeples

    places meant to honor the One who gave us all
    Creator of all
    yet do people heed the call

    Do they offer their thanks
    do they take Him to mind
    or give thoughts only of the briefest kind

    Do the steeples any longer draw the people in
    or merely blend with the horizon
    disappear in the haze
    as people are more concerned
    with other things to fill their days

  • It has turned cold again. :-(
    but I hear they’ve had snow in Minnesota and Wisconsin, so I’m not going to complain.

    Today’s poem – day 16, April 16, 2014

    Youth
    O glorious youth
    how quickly you have flown
    remembering when I was a youth
    and could not wait, to be grown

    O the carefree days
    now long gone -
    down life’s weary path
    we’ve traveled on

    Grasping where we can
    at the joys of yore
    as we pass
    from here to fore

    With every passing year
    the bones get a little creakier
    the joints
    a little squeakier

    But happier days we do remember
    and still enjoy to reminisce
    to recreate where we can
    that carefree, joyful, bliss :-D

  • Today is the day of the Feast of unleavened bread (known as Passover)
    - day of the last supper of Yshwe (known as Jesus)
    This day Yshwe is betrayed.

  • Wind Chimes – C.Lynn

    singing in the breeze
    playing joyful song
    tinkling a melody
    their gentle lull
    creating illusion
    to beat the feel of heat
    leading the mind down paths
    to thoughts of coolness
    gentle stirring breezes
    sung out by the chimes

    wind chimes

  • Watching the eclipse…

    If the clouds will cooperate. They have been greatly getting in the way,
    but I am praying that they will blow away, and stay away.

  • I got this idea when I saw JusticeMom’s title today. :-)

    Hijinks jesterand Cabin fever

    Cabin fever
    when you get tired of staying in
    it is the time
    when a lot of hijinks begin

    bored to silliness
    the silly begins
    a time to pull pranks
    for which you’ll get no thanks

    no where to go
    nothing to do
    can cause people
    to go a little lulu

    whether alone by themselves
    or with others as targets
    they can find the most
    uncanny things to do
    sometimes you’d think they’d been raised in
    (or escaped from)
    a zoo.
