Treat Tenderly

T

Treat hearts tenderly ~

R

Remember they’re fragile, may not be much resilient…

E

Even the wizened, encased in ancient armadillo armor

A

Are vulnerable:  deep abrasions, agony from arrogant embraces, all due to awkward

T

Trust placed in those unworthy…scars tattooed by cruel magic spells of Truth-disabled.

Treat tenderly all hearts.

Heart to Heart Conversation

Sheep know Shepherd’s voice

Love’s words recognizable

Even in half-sleep

Heart to heart conversation

Weary Year Finally Ends

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/finally/

Limping toward last hours

Wrinkled calendar meets end

Frayed triumphs tear-blurred

Blind faith, hope, dreams clutched in bag

*To be redeemed in New Year

*The Lord’s Encouragements:

New International Version
“The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.” ~Ecclesiastes 7:8

18 “Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. 19* “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.  Isaiah 43:18-19 ~~  New American Standard Bible

27 And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28* And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.… Romans 8:27-29 ~~  Berean Study Bible

In the Almost Lost

In the “almost lost”

Faith clings to mountain, weeps, waits

(Doubts…) prays God’s rescue

‘Midst this “almost” soul decides

Persevering trust or Death

~

During “almost lost”

Heart is no less radiant

Volcano-burnished

Call For Extravagant Hearts

Extravagant hearts

What whole world needs in New Year

Desp’rate souls languish

Big money, small consciences

Self-consumed “all about me”

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

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
