Early Sunday Thoughts

© Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

Allowing ourselves to trust the future is secure is sometimes hard. Knowing we are Beloved of God helps us go forward.

Small steps make progress toward better days. We are meant to grow, not fade. Life is not always what we plan, but the stops along the pathway are often where Jesus finds us open to suggestion.

Why we are here can be unclear, but our destiny is no secret to the One who made us. Take time to reflect on where you are coming from and what opportunities your experience may bring you. Hold your dreams dear, and share them with God. He is on your side.

Remember, a detour may lead to a better possibility than we imagine. Love is the guide and is always with us.

New Addition

Rug for Workout

I am trying to make my workout space so I can do it barefoot. I rescued this from storage. It is an improvement. I added it tonight.

The following poem was written a few days ago.

Ways

Gentle as the kiss
Of dampening dew on grass
As morning hours pass,
Bright as sunlight reflecting
A child’s face, laughing at dawn.
Sweet as a baby
Long overdue, expected,
Often as the care –
Simple luxuries provide
Breath, food, drink, all connected;
Even more than these
Is Love always proceeding
From God’s tender heart
Cradling us each completely.

May all of you be safe and well.

Embrace

Paperweight

Whisper, Soar

Where you
Rest,
Feet up,
Feeling
Under
The wind
Mischievous,
Sighs,
Exhaled
As if
Day can
Be
Before
And
Forever.
Still
The wolf
Hovers,
Howling,
A song
Like
Love
Bewailed
And
Coaxed
Back
To
Life.
Stormlight
Favoring,
Two pair
Wide eyes –
Dawn will
Bring
Busyness,
But,
Just now,
Only
Being,
Reveling,
Lightning
Struck.
Doors
Snick shut
Past
The
Leftovers,
Tangled
Froth,
Where
Once
Was more.
Whisper,
Soar.

Gala

Sprung like
Springtime,
is,
with its
tempestuous
weather
and billowy
enticements,
alive.
We go on,
higher,
and thrive.
Heaven lent us
this time
between times
when
there we
will arrive.

Thank you for reading. Enjoy your week.

Keeping Until

Love – Doves © Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

Following

We win sometimes, but
Other times we lose so hard
We break down and weep;
Remember our tears; God keeps –
Never quit ’til final sleep.
There is a purpose
For every hurt, all defeats,
Pain is creative
Teaches strength enough to leap
Catching dreams Love lives to keep.
No accidents, all
Obstacles, problems build up
Reservoirs of good,
Blessings that shower down on
Us, when we come to grace – show.

Be well, be safe, and carry on.
