Storms of Life

Tiny, pure, innocent

The storms of life swirl around her

She thrives by the grace of God

To do the work He has sent her to do

Uncommon Beauty

Common roadside beauty

A weed to most

Overlooked, unnoticed

Except for a brief splash of color

Up close its beauty is

Not to be outdone 

Do we often bother enough

To look closely at those around us

To seek their beauty?

All that comes before us

Has something to offer

As a part of God's creation

Longing for this place...

A state of mind

Where life passes at a slower pace

And mosquitoes are my only problem

I'm making my way there

Where days are longer

And peace and tranquility are mine
