A personal favorite flower- (or weed)
Queen Anne's Lace
They grow carefree and in wild abandon
in the countryside.
Real life is not so free and easy.
A certain daughter has a birthday today.
Been a year of blessings and gifts.
And a number of "closed doors"
to opportunities that she thought would be good.
This week she spent wound up tight and
rolled into a ball of jagged nerves.
And the phone call came- again.
Not this job.
And hope seeps out,
and the sky grays a bit.,
And life seems a bit blurry,
not so crisp and defined.
From my favorite devotion book-
"In this life, we have an incomplete view of God's dealings,
seeing His plan only half finished and underdeveloped.
Yet once we stand in the magnificent temple of eternity,
we will have the proper perspective
and will see everything fitting gracefully together!"
Streams in the Desert- July 25
If God could just give us a word
or two in the sky-
just a clue,
we could rest a bit easier.
so in waiting we hope-
"By faith we eagerly await through the Spirit
the righteousness for which we hope."
this plan we have not seen fully-
"You do not realize now what I am doing,
but later you will understand."
Grab His hand, dear one.
Rest assured to Follow.
He leads you well.
