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


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

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
