For A Moment



I love to support writing by young writers. This is by my 17 year old friend LB Harbin...LOVE it.






For a moment



We have eyes yet don't see



Ears yet don't listen



Be still for a moment Look and see



Hear and listen



Be still for a moment



See the critters crawl And the creatures lurk the earth



The birds sing in the trees and soar the sky



The fish that swim the great blue



Witness their beauty and glory



Hear the song they each sing



Unique to their own identity



All so beautiful Yet not fully yet



They await something more...themselves to be restored



Unveiled for the original glory they were created



for Human kind,



look around As high as the tallest canopy of a tree



As far as the horizon of the sky



As deep as the ocean deep



Look and see



Hear and listen



Be still for a moment



Watch the clouds form



As they come an go



Feel the wind brush across your skin



Taste the sweetness of a honeysuckle



Smell the blossoms of flowers in a field



Hear the flutter of a butterfly



But you have to be still for a moment



Notice the value in each moment you live



Each breath you breathe in Grace abounds, it's all around Each human like the rest of creation...beautiful



Each singing their own song Unique to their own identity



Glorious yet not fully



yet Each awaiting restoration to be fully alive



If only we be still for a moment And see and listen to the beauty and glory of life



Grace abounds it's all around



Look and see Hear and listen



Be still for a moment You're created for something more

the past



Going back to a place of past importance



feeling different but



not uncomfortable



looking at everything



from a different angle



thinking



and happy about



the change but


not in a bitter way

I am blessed to still have my Daddy, blessed to spend Father's Day with him!



He turns 84 tomorrow! Love you Daddy!

Kids and Memories

I wonder what they will remember
when they are my age
the fun of being together?
the fun of the pool in the summer?
knowing they are loved ?
knowing the are accepted?
fighting with each other?
giggling in the van?
Hopefully, all of the above

Summer



Happy Day!



I am so enjoying this summer with our girls! Fun stuff. They keep me laughing.



I'm going to try to start posting some of the funny things that happen around here.



My youngest Cara, has a new name and it is, Lady Godiva. Since we have our above ground pool up, she is in and out of the water all day. She just doesn't see the need for clothing while she is inside, if she is going back outside. It is a funny sight and I have to step in and make her put on clothes.



I raised them to not be self concious about their bodies. I did this on purpose and now I realize I may have tried a little too hard
