Peace Be Still

My blog is Things I Know, Seen, Tell.  Then I'll tell about my day, this day, this moment in my life.  A morning when you wake and nothing is wrong but you feel lost, somewhat lonely and life wants you to believe its unforgiving. 

There's a soft breeze, that seems to precede a calm that is in the air yet my senses seem to reflect otherwise.  Listening to the outdoors I can hear the birds which seems like I am somewhere else, not here.  Their cooing and peeks seem a lot louder than usual. The trees are swaying and it's hard to believe we were in the mid-80's yesterday, yet today's coolness is inviting, welcoming the mood that I am in. 

A need to regain my inner peace seems to be persistent.  That's when I look to sky, and the clouds are white cotton ribbons, moving in a rhythm with streaks of soft, sky blue.  The flow is so effortless that I have to believe that God is breathing a soft breathe upon us all, and upon me....peace be still.

Your Voice

Barren and cold
snow is falling outside
and bitterness is in the air
a breeze, your kiss against my cheek
I feel you and have a since of peace
that takes my breath away
I hear you say "Tee, I'm ok."
Your voice is clear and crisp
my eyes feel with tears
thinking of you
finding you
and the love God has for me
granting me this peace once again
hearing your voice
hearing you say your ok.

Blessed Assurance

Honored by His assurance to calm my soul,
then, and only then,
can my mind, body, and soul
be strong to conquer and bear all things.

Then, and only then, do I write words that grip my soul.

Then, and only then, do I pursue the vision
that I've held in my mind.

Then, and only then, what I wish to convey frames itself.

Then, and only then, do you see what I feel.
