No problem, or so I thought,
Jumping jacks, really, for how long?
Long? tried doing 10,
Glad they’re over again.
Next tried doing exercises,
with a long purple stretch band.
After pulling and pushing this way and that,
Bring back that child that’s physically fit,
Never a quitter, trying to conquer it.

Climb to the Top

Not my effort, brings me to the top,
Getting through each jagged edge,
each rocky ledge, each uncertain step,
My foothold’s in step with God.
who upholds me never to fall.
Undeserving, uncertain, but leaning,
but learning daily to trust more,
to hope more, to leave myself behind,
There to find the Rock, on whom I stand.
There I Climb to the top.

 

 

Uplifting

Each day a woman knows as she dresses,
that God keeps her abreast
knowing that God
is her source of daily support,
Always, uplifting.

 

Lessons From a Dog

Sadie, our little black  tea-cup poodle snuggled under a pillow on the couch.
Sticking with it, trying to find her own way out.
I sat there and watched, laughing, seeing the pillow upon her back.
Traveling, only the pillow to see, finally she made it out at last.
Reflecting on the problem I witnessed it made me my God to praise.
