Morning Prayer

Ears to Hear

Lord, I’m drawing a blank again.
I need some insight from You.
I feel like an awkward stranger,
and that causes me to feel sad.
I like it when I get those ahas.
Those times when You speak
And I hear and know that I hear.
God, please, give me that again.

Today’s Bible Gateway verse is
“So do not throw away your confidence;
it will be richly rewarded. You need
to persevere so that when you have done
the will of God, you will receive what
he has promised. Hebrews 10:35-36 NIV
What is Your will for me this Sunday?
When in doubt, love God and love others.

Gnomes Autumn Acrostic


O range, yellow-orange, purplish-red
R ed maple trees lining the road
A rtistic brilliance in every mile
N umbers of people
G awking at beauty
E nergy rising as temperatures fall

22 gnomes autumn acrostic


C rispy, crackling leaves crunching under foot
R acing through the breeze as summer goes kaput
U nderneath the moon
N ew adventures soon
C rispy, crackling leaves raked into a pile
H aving autumn fun, leaping with a smile
I recall those autumn days of when I was a child
N ow the autumn of life is approaching. I’m
G oing out with style.

gnomes summer dance

Moonlit summer dance
Bodies, hearts and souls entwine
Then the testing comes

20 gnomes summer dance

Last Dance

The summer dance is near the end,
As breezes blow through verdant leaves.
The sun smiles down like leaving friend,
While weather offers short reprieves.

Adventurers will rush about
To get in just one last hurrah.
They’ll camp and sail, and try new route,
A summer thrill to give them awe.

And soon the leaves will dance in time.
They’ll drift and lift in autumn air.
In bright new dress, they’re quite sublime.
Let summer end with splendid flare.

I nvestigative reporters may put their
N oses where they ought nought be to get the news. Scouring for
F acts they may come up with lies    
O r even fudge on a few details causing their
R eports to be more fiction than reality, as they develop their
M aterial. We need to examine
A ll the evidence with wisdom and discernment.
T he vast communication we experience today and the abundance of
I ntelligence available online can be
O verwhelming. The knowledge we gain is tremendous, though
N ow we’re never sure the data we receive can be trusted.
