Hibiscus   3 comments

Pink pancakes non-caloric

Satisfy the soul

An appetite never waning

Ever wanting more

“Nonsense! I’ve never sensed a mother, consequently she doesn’t exist.”

Believe and see the kingdom of God that is here and now – captured in a moment – fleeting on this plain – momentary reminders of what is and what will be

Make a Splash   Leave a comment

Everyday – another opportunity – to make a splash 😉

Doreen Birdsell Blog

The oceans must find a shore to make a splash

A ripple on the sea

All of us as one swooshing sea

At times stands out as one of these

Abundance   Leave a comment

A flower’s gift and its lesson for this day:

Set your eyes and heart on riches that no one can ever steal.
