Where the Oak Leaves Whisper

20190507_133410

On the trail that day, in the wind, where the oak leaves whisper, shadows of wings covered him, from the sky…

yet he was never afraid, even with the distant sounds of singing, of chanting and drums, he noticed shadows shifting,

so he stopped with a poem nearing its creation. Sitting on a large rock with prayer beginning as a spring,

light flickered and when he opened his eyes he found…..

he was the river, after all.

In the Whispers of the Wind

20180204_120052

In the spaces between snowflakes, winter’s breath unfolded,

reminding us of prayers breathed,

from our wilder moments,

when we actually did

have some faith,

when snow covered mountains

held us,

and God spoke healing,

in the whispers

of the wind.

In Memory of Natalie

20190507_122103

My friend, I know you are dwelling in the light of 1 million suns now, walking with the Savior, talking, having those conversations you always dreamed about,

but I took some pictures the other day, and thought of you as I looked through the lens. I hope you enjoy them.

And I thought of how you have encouraged us so many times when we were down, with your words of light and life, and your beautiful photographs.

Thank you my friend. We miss you….I miss you. Pray for us, those still remaining…..

And Lord God, thank You for our friend….Natalie.

Amen. 

In Memory of Natalie Scarberry, a blogging friend, and source of incredible encouragement.

A Very Special Thank You

20180707_155444

This is a very special thank you because you are a very special group of readers, thank you!

And thank you to all those across the planet, that have been praying for and thinking some positive thoughts for my wife. The mass in her chest (inside her, not on her chest) is actually smaller now, due to treatment. Yay!!

We are in a waiting phase now, for maybe a month or two, to see how it looks through special scans. Then another decision will be made as to whether or not more treatments are needed.

We are so grateful for all of our friends here and for your prayers!!

We wish you peace.
