Whispered Promises

There is a crispness in the air
While dew blankets the earth.
The birds call out
As they flutter busily all around.

My mind ponders the question…
Do they trust as they go busily about?
Or do they, too, wonder
Why spring seems no where to be found?

That Little Face

That little face will bring me happiness.
That little face will bring me heartache.

I will cry tears of joy over that little face.
I will also cry tears of pure frustration.

At times, my head will feel like it is going to explode from confusion and anger,
My heart will always be bursting at the seams with love and pride.

Whether sassy and loud or sweet and mild…
Whether headstrong and determined or relaxed and ready to go with the flow,
You are going to fit right in around here.

You already carved your own space…
Right in my heart.


To conform is to be invisible
like a child hiding,
hands over eyes,
lost behind the mask of illusion,
blending in,
The real YOU is gone,
but where?
No individuality,
no unique qualities,
nothing that says to the world…I am ME!
I am special.
YOU are special.
Don’t conform…
be transformed.
Renew your mind,
your spirit.
Be the face that shines.
Be the voice that is heard.
Be the heart that lives,
your very best YOU!
Let your light shine through,
and make the world a more colorful place.

No Room

A great distance they had traveled.

The time was drawing near.

To Bethlehem, they ventured.

A baby would soon appear.


You cannot stay. Every room is full.

I’m sorry, you must leave.

There is no place for you…wait, let me think…

There may be something, please do not grieve.


This is a place to rest your head.

You can shelter here for the night.

It’s not a room; I have no bed.

But it shall do until morning’s light.
