cee’s black & white challenge … big subjects

i have this innate love for trees… their burly and steadfast stance deeply rooted in the ground always reminding  me of the firm grasp of God’s love for me intensely ingrained in the landscape of my life.  in paradox, with the changing hues of the leaves in the boughs of the tree, God’s love never changes… it never falls or fails, it never springs forth in season but eternally blooms overshadowing my mistakes in forgiveness.

His Son, Jesus, was hung on a “tree”  in order to give me hope and life… a gift freely given to those who accept and believe.

being a part of Cee’s black & white challenge

just waiting …

waiting

waiting expectantly…

as I have lifted my concerns,
know about them even prior to realizing
that i had any.

your love encompasses my needs because YOU
are more than able.
I humbly submit my lowly self for your cause…
because I am a channel of your love.

waiting earnestly…

as I am transformed,
in your likeness will I bear fruit,
for your glory alone, I will, by your grace.

minutes pass to hours, days to years,
because each second leads to the next
as YOU allow it so.

nothing moves forward without You, dear Lord…
so please allow me to celebrate waiting in the
hallow of YOUR grace.

impatience tempts the movement of time,
because I focus on me and what I want.
please grant me to wait expectantly…
earnestly…

for what YOU uphold is good by YOUR will.

a lingering look at windows … week fourteen

many come without trimmings,
unhampered and wide open.
yet, this one with iron grillings,
sculpted and seemingly misshapen.

from this perspective shows movement,
that goes around twisted and contorted.
stringing a focal moment,
of continuity leading to contentment.
