A Poem For Thought

Thanks for The Beauty Lord

What you gave greatly adored
Its seen in your creation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

You gave flowers that are vastly colored
Giving sense of smell a sensation
What you gave greatly adored

For in the blue-sky birds soared
Giving sense of sight an admiration
Thanks for the beauty Lord

Nature walks where one explored
Giving senses much confrontation
What you gave greatly adored

The mountains of some unexplored
What a spectacular sight foundation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

The farmland that grows reward
Helping us fight against starvation
What you gave greatly adored

The ocean beached breaths deplored
Water touched, sand felt, great elation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

The rivers and creeks your voice roared
In all of nature you are seen in formation
What you gave greatly adored
Thanks for the beauty Lord

Thoughts: Life can move so fast that we forget to slow down and enjoy what God has given us in His thoughtfulness to our needs and enjoyment of nature, His creation. Looking at the simplicity of nature I realize its not so simple as I think of the complexity of how it all interacts and works to our need and enjoyment. God thought of us His human creation, created in His likeness and gave us dominance over all of beautiful nature; "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps the earth" (Gen 1:26. NKJV). I am in awe at the beauty of nature that the Lord sacrificed His life for us to enjoy in knowing God.  Thanks for the beauty Lord!

Just a Poem for Thought

Work in Progress

When it seems your life is a mess
You just can’t get it all together
Remember, your a work in progress

Your life seems to give you stress
And you start seeing things as heather
When it seems your life is a mess

You can also start to think you are less
But of this you must think neither
Remember, your a work in progress

No need to get sadly and depress
The Lord can help pull you altogether
When it seems your life is a mess

You only need To His comfort confess
He will see you through when under weather
Remember, your a work in progress

To the Lord your life you profess
Then to His love you become tether
When it seems your life is a mess
Remember, your His work in progress
   ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Sometimes it may seem the Lord to be all you have or have left; some in loss of some kind. Be thankful and glorified. Never doubt His presence and passion. Allow Him to work in your life. Don’t stop or give up and remember, your a work in progress.

To my wonderful audience

Do sincerely apologize, but needing a break to take care of some personal business. Will return way, way before dead line on publication of “I Am Sowed” book. Will return, that’s a promise!
