THE WIND AND THE CLOUDS

Why is it, when the wind blows with a mournful sigh
our hearts are sad, as though we too would cry . . .
But when it whispers soft and low . . .
through leafy trees, we love it so.

Wildly blowing with no clouds across the sky
But just the clear, cold and azure blue . . .
'Tis then we wish to roam or like a bird fly high . . .
until we too, are lost from view.

Drifting fleecy clouds, all soft and white
The shining sun, so warm and bright . . .
Throwing heat waves o'er the fields of grain . . .
Contented we dream, and build new hope again.

  13. This reminded me of a scripture that I love so much...

    "So I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow wtih hope through the power of the Holy Spirit." ~Romans 15:13

    Joy is a choice. We may not realize it, but we choose our moods and our attitudes. God's promises are the basis for choosing joy no matter what we face.

  23. Hey Margie!!!! Thank you so much for getting in touch with me, you don't know how much it means to me when someone shows concern :) I'm very sorry I've disappeared from the 'blogosphere', mainly due to personal issues my family and I had been dealing with. The recent unexpected death of my grandmother has been one of them, and it's been a very difficult grieving process. However, lately things are beginning to take an up side, and have been getting better. I'm back in school, about to finish the program soon.
    I just read some of your work, and it was an absolute delight to read as usual :)
    I will return to the world of blogging as soon as things recover completely. I also wanted to ask if you have any sort of alternative email for keeping in touch? It would be nice to catch up every now and then.
