Hanging There With You


Though worn out, wind beaten, battered and bruised 

know you’re not alone love, I’m hanging there with you

Whereas distance separates us, many miles apart

Spirit connects us within our hearts

And together we’ll weather whatever winds blow 

until the time comes to finally let go

Then we’ll dance on the breeze into endless blue skies

amidst fluffy white clouds our souls will fly

There will be no more suffering, no more pain

only love and joy and peace will reign

Before the Evening Comes


Evening begins to fall, as daylight gives way to night

and on the brisk spring breeze, dark clouds roll in

as we stand, together, courageous

with the light of the moon glowing between us

just before the evening comes

Springtime Serenade


I bask in the beauty of bright blue skies

feeling the warm caress of the sun on my skin

The scent of fresh earth fills my nostrils

grounding me

The sweet melody of the robin fills the air

as green buds too, burst forth in song

Springtime’s serenade reverberates within me

breathing new life into my senses

I wrote this yesterday while I was outside enjoying the lovely weather we had.  Seriously, the warm sun on my skin felt so amazing, and the blue of the sky was glorious!  It was so delightful to hear the birds singing and to smell the scent of dirt again.  What… you don’t like the smell of dirt?  😉

Then I noticed these buds sprouting on my lilacs and seeing that fresh, new spring green made me feel like new too.

What a gift the changing of the seasons is.  It really is the simple things that bring me joy.


Wishing you joy today…

Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping beauty, little one so fair

blissfully dreaming and unaware

while grandma watches over with loving care

whispering her quiet prayers

My regular morning time ritual has been altered over the past two weeks to include sharing it with this cute little cuddle bug.  She comes in and naps in my room so her mommy can get some extra sleep in the mornings after being awakened throughout the night for feedings.  I’m used having my mornings to myself, but I don’t mind sharing them with my precious granddaughter – I’m cherishing every moment I get to spend with her.  Which mostly includes just watching her sleep.  And praying over her.  ❤

I hope for so many things for her life…


I promise to try not to go too overboard with all things baby in my posts, but as I have always just shared whatever happens to be currently going on in my world, it’s bound to sometimes include my sweet Noelle.

There’s not much going on outside here – everything is drab and dreary, no signs of spring yet, but I’m sure I’ll be sharing about it once there is.  I can’t wait to bring Noelle outside and show her the garden, even though she won’t really know what’s what.  Hey, one is never too young to get acquainted with nature!  😉


Have a wonderful weekend my friends!  May it be filled with beauty, and with…
