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.

tinges of the color salmon, bordering on the hues of pink and orange… alive and bursting in the warmth of summer in the islands
my first entry for Jennifer’s one word photo challenge
in all these sweeping pattern details,
repeated, united, entangled…
redesigning the heart it entails,
being loved, focused, joyful, angled
to one direction leading to HIS awesome grace that never fails.
joining a weekly pattern of fun… cee’s fun foto challenge
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.
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…
for what YOU uphold is good by YOUR will.
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.
a thursday glimpse… a lingering look at windows
passion is found in nature…

he caught my eye with his pensive countenance which reflected the depth of his emotions. many times we are unaware but others see and feel what our hearts try to hide.
