Enjoy The Journey

Sometimes I like to take a walk

Call a good friend for a

light-hearted talk

Read a good adventure book

Or look around and take

A long hard look

At what is mine in the here and now

To see it in creation

and just say “wow”

I see it in the trees and the sky

and I fill it in the air that is crisp

In the cute, freckle face kid

whose hair is in a wisp

I see it in the stars, in the sun

and the rain

I see it in the comfort and

I feel it in the pain

I see it in my home when

the kids are running free

I see it in the mirror when

you’re looking back at me

I see it all around so I can

slow down my pace

And enjoy this journey now

because of your amazing grace!

“The Calm After the Storm”

Spring Rain
Spring Rain (Photo credit: Esteban Cavrico)

Thunder clashes as lightning shoots across the sky,

Rain pounds on the panes and I hear my daughter cry.

Darkness one moment daylight in a flash,

Fear turns to peace before another clash.

It’s loud for a moment as silence ushers in,

A deep sleep and a rest that doesn’t wake me again.

Till morning when the first rays of light peek through,

The shades on my window off the drops of morning dew.

And I open the window to something so fresh and so clear,

A most beautiful morning erased of all fear.

A freshness that only spring storm clouds could bring,

Through the wreckage the very first glimpses of spring.
