About Sand Lashelsea

Just an old writer...USA

Cozy Tableau

Cozy cuddled beneath gray winter clouds

One season obscured, God’s seeds planted mute-deep

Zoo of plush bears, koala, kangaroo…keeps heart

Young and creative, door open, soul true

Faith Confession

Heart would not tempt stones*

To shout o’er my confession

Jesus Lord, I praise

Confess, exalt Christ true God

Let rocks weep their obeisance

*Luke 19:37-40

The Future, Reinhold Niebuhr

Quote

“Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope.

Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith.

Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love.

No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our standpoint.

Therefore we must be saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.”

~ Reinhold Niebuhr, The Irony of American History, 1952

Proclivity (Limerick)

I confess proclivity

For unabashed hyperbole

Lifeblood drama whirls through veins

Employed most oft to entertain

…Though some protest necessity

CHERISH

Call to mind those who reside in

Heart ~ the multi-faceted whole which inspires soul

Every kind face who supports dreams, goals

Runs the race alongside, companions on quest

In it to win it, they witness each triumph

Shore up faith’s courage when loss prevails

Hearts of others hold us aloft ~ celebrate & cherish♥♥

Mild? Not So Much

Mild merry-making

‘Tis only for cautious hearts

We’ll dance till last breaths

Sing glad tidings, Noel hope

Exalt Him, Emmanuel!

Communal Crow Feast

Communal roof gang

Christmas crows line up, appraise

Festive window lights

If snow delays they will feast

Sav’ry stuffing, piecrust crumbs
