Detached

There comes a time in our lives that we are tempted by something that can change our lives in a way we can never imagine. In some circumstances we can have what I’m going to call a flesh attack. In case you don’t know that is when your flesh demands satisfaction. In that state we forget about the consequences or we just don’t care. A free for all is not necessarily free at all. Someone is going to pay be it one or both involved.

Her future had taken a sudden turn

The flesh got in the way

Never again would she be

The carefree teen she was yesterday

A decision that never crossed her mind

Had been made for her

The secret fun she enjoyed

Had gone a bit too far

She wondered as tears

Streamed down her face

How could this happen to me

No more will life be carefree

When she shared the news with him

He turned and walked away

Hadn’t seen or heard from him

Since that dreaded day

The unexpected bundle of joy

Had made his way

The pain and push

Now complete

Is here to stay

Where is the joy that abounds

Blank face and stony heart

Cold eyes starring into space

No connection to be found

Detached from the start

Wings of New Life

Once I heard someone tell what an eagle goes through when they are being transformed. It’s seems like they are being remodeled; being taken down to the studs. Just like a house being remodeled they look like a mess. I wonder if they even know what they shall be when it is all done. When their remodel is complete they get to test their new wings. I’m sure they have better wings, more powerful wings that will help them soar higher to the highest heights. I’m going to soar as high as I can go to heights unknown to me on a new path with my wings of new life.

The day has come to test my wings

To fly away and begin again

A new adventure in my life

Where I’ve not been before

Sometimes scary

 I maintain control 

Up and down

All around

With my wings I soar

Peering through keen eyes 

Looking for my place

Where I am to be

To start anew

Can’t return to the place of old 

It was temporary 

Has grown cold 

I don’t fit there anymore 

Taking a deep breath and letting go

Using my wings of new life

See Me

For quite a while I looked in the mirror and I didn’t see a person I was familiar with. I thought there is something wrong but couldn’t figure it out. I didn’t like my hair but didn’t know what to do with it. Some mornings I changed clothes two or more times before I settled on a compromise so I could make it to work on time.

Last week I had my hair transformed that I am satisfied with. I purchased a classy dress that made me see myself in a different way. I got a revelation that I had to make some changes so I can see myself like God sees me. I’m not saying a new hair style or new clothes really matter but I believe the success God wants me to have will have a new look that is different than what I’m use to. So along with the new outward look I’m also looking inward so I can see me better.

See me in a different light

Beautiful, strong, full of might

Many talents to be revealed

Starting with my love for you

Breaking open what is sealed

The Little Things

I wrote this in 2016 one day when I was meditating on my relationship with the Lord. I’ve probably posted it but I felt I should post it again. The little things that go on between me and Him makes my life worth while because He is always there for me to keep me going in the right direction-even when my flesh wants to take me the wrong way. I’m forever grateful to my Lord for all He does for me.

The little things no one can see

The little things between you and me

The little things you point out

Only for you and me to see

You guide me to and fro

Whisper in my ear

Only for me to know

When to stay and where to go

The little things 

Mean more each day

The little things that you say

Keeping me straight so I won’t stray

The little things I see and hear

Let me know you love me

Each and every day

You guide me along my way

The little things no one can see

The little things between you and me

The little things, the way you lead

Only for you and me to see

#atozchallenge – Summertime

Summertime

Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald

 

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’

So hush little baby, Don’t you cry
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky

But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you

With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’

So hush little baby, Don’t you cry
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky

But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin can harm you

With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by

My Summertime

Summertime is on its way

Fun in the sun and swimming pool play

Sipping iced tea and lemonade

Sitting back relaxing oh what a day

Without a worry or care

Not an ounce of despair

Summertime, fun time

Oh happy day

 

#atozchallenge -Peter’s Fight

P.jpg

         Peter’s Fight

Unaware of the fight that was ahead Peter kept moving forward on

A course that could bring misery and dread.

Especially because he wasn’t prepared

He kept wandering here and there in great despair

Although pretending not to have a worry or care

Peter took a deep breath and slowly released

All the distraction around him that disturbed his peace

He stood still and waited till all was calm

Until he was sure which way to go

After all the confusion that turned him around

Peter got settled on firm ground

He opened his eyes and saw a new way

To win the fight that caused his delay#
