reflection 3

I’ve had no time for reflection,
too little time for God,
though I am wishing and praying for Him to show up in a big way.

Verse of the day today:
Isaiah 50:4
The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will.


4 The Lord God hath given me the [trials of life], that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary…
(my personalized version, Isaiah 50)

reflection 2

I hear the calling of the raven (or the crow).


I always have loved autumn – but this year it is so much harder…   … as the date of the 25th approaches… this year I find it hard to dance with the autumn winds

I’ve been aware for some time of ‘the bright morning star’,
but I got a full appreciation of it as I drove to my apartment at 6:00 am this morning.

adding to my sadness (at what has happened)

I am over at the apt. cleaning and packing, (after having ozonated the place) and I hear lovely birdsong.  Stepping out onto the porch I feel the beautiful cool breeze of autumn, and I spy my favorite bird… 3 of them in fact… black-capped chickadees…

also spied some yellow-bellied something or others…. probably fly-catchers

Anyway, I am reminded of how much I love this place and am sad/MAD at having to move because of the behaviors of other people, and the refusal to take responsibility, of property owners.

Silence again today
aside from the rustling of leaves
cool, stillness
devoid of birdsong

October arrives
