Reliving a Kodak Moment   Leave a comment

George Eastman’s Desk —

His former home is now a museum in Rochester, NY.  His vision was to put a camera into the hands of the masses … Truly a believer who manifested his dream.   This massive accomplishment inspires me, and I hope you as well, to think big, take calculated risks, dream dreams, and live to accomplish all that you hope that God would hold dear. 

Images reveal truths

Some wanted, some not

One picture portrays

What often words cannot 

From cave walls to canvas

From film to pixels

Quickened by heart 

Perceived by the eye

Freezing life’s moments

One click at a time

Struck by a sunset

Or a newborn child

Photography allows us to be

21st Century recorders 

Of all that we see 

Revealers of truth

Explorers of nature

Capturing love

Always and Forever   Leave a comment

If we could not see the sky

Could we declare it is not there

Yet there are those that would insist

Retaliate and persist to prove it does not exist

The truth after all is this

We are the ocean – We are its beach

Our Creator, like the sky

Always and forever is within reach

There is Only One   2 comments

The colors in the sky are too many to name and varied beyond belief

We try to memorize or duplicate to rekindle for relief

You leave us with indelible impressions everywhere

Water is Your mirror providing for our pleasure and our needs

You are water, You are light, You are the air we breathe

Without any part of all of You nothing could survive

But mere existence is not Your aim

We are made for Your delight, and to delight in You

To love when days are dark or light

To trust that once and for all

You are for one … and for all

With eyes fixed on Your magnificence

Our hearts burst forth with what becomes uncontainable and clear

That the breath of our lifeblood is in our acts of love and care

And to acknowledge that You are with us at all times and everywhere

An Everyday Necessity   Leave a comment

Peace and Love . . . 

It’s that time of year

What time is that you say

It is now; it is always

It is our weapon against war

It is our agent for all disease

It is what wakes us up

And gives us pause

Not to rise up in rebuke

Not to lay down in denial

Not to lie, but to edify

And only when the Spirit says it’s called for

When Bombarded . . .   Leave a comment

Media alerts, and each day’s chatter, mix with prayers of thanks and the many needs for all

Thoughts unknowingly, unwantedly seep deeper while we sleep

Does the vividness of dreams beckon our dissection of a possible prophetic message

Hoping for comforting assurance, and the semblance of desired truth

 

Seeking a life purpose will never be in vain

For the Lord of all proclaims to always guide our path

For the better part of self; the Spirit truly speaking

Engender faith and hope with all your heart for all the lives that you keep reaching

~ A December Day Remembered ~   Leave a comment

Attune to tides, and shifting light

All is worth recording to recall

That there was a moment

Even if only for a moment

Where peace and time stood still and paramount

Representing Placid Waters   Leave a comment

I believe that peace is a choice 

Some things are worth fighting for 

Like defending the voiceless and the young

But the majority of the time my thoughts can be wasted

On things that have not even been done

But only conjured by a worrisome idea

May faith be the blanket that shields me from ill thoughts

To be a beacon for the one who’s seeking shelter

A place to find true rest
