No Burden – Kindness #poetry

 

framed hand with flower

A hand offered in silence

a smile to soothe the days

eyes light hope’s tomorrows

cast warm summer rays

you choose to accept another

 to greet with friendly smile

burdens often we carry

lighter for two over miles

lean forward into fellowship

melt frost on coldest days

sun breaks the mourning

for God’s gift you can never pay

I am daily graced by the kindness of others. The gesture need not be a grand one but just in a simple act, a smile, a word kindly spoken.  The difference can have a profound effect on a person’s day. Try it!

“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.:

~Proverbs 3:3

“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”

~Ephesians 4:32

Love as an Action #devotion #poetry

girl on the move

 May I be motivated to do good

 my attitude be cheerful today

my feet be swift to aid another

kindest words from my lips would I say

may my mind not stray toward evil

eyes mirror what is  in my soul

that I would accept others as a child

generosity spill forth for  poor, young and old

I just got back from vacation and along the way watched people.  What I observed:

With so little effort we can bring cheer and goodness to others as we cross their paths.

How often do you hear a child’s laugh, see her smile and not feel less bothered by the day?

Small kindness can make such a difference in a person’s day.

Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
1 Peter 3:9

Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.

1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Picture Desire #photography

I hope 2

believe

Picture desire

the belief           in goodness

 sweet, confident      repose  of a puppy

waves  carelessly lapping at your heels

the ability to resist hatred and war

the intertwining of beauty

love’s pas de deux

Desires are central to the soul’s unfolding and should not be dismissed before giving them careful attention.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.
