Haiku: Sing and Peace

Haiku Sing and Peace


I should sing a hymn,

It lifts me when I feel grim,

Brings me gentle peace.

My voice is off key,

God won’t care, I sing with joy,

Though peace might be missed.

Haiku Horror & Nightmare


His Love Wins

To Mary’s horror,

 Jesus born in a manger was

King Herod’s nightmare.


Jesus, no earthly King,

Herod murdered infants, his sins

But Jesus’ Love Wins!

Casting Your Cares

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you.” English can be very inadequate at times. The word as a verb, “cast”, has a much more literal meaning in Greek than I ever thought. It means to to throw away or to fling away from you. One article I read described it as dumping our worries and anxieties onto God. That made me a little guilty because I really do not want to dump my problems onto people.164caoceanside But, as a parent, don’t I want to help my child with problems if I can?  Sure, I do! That is the same way that God feels about you and me! When I was a little girl, I went with my Grandpa several times to fish off the pier in Oceanside, CA. Last night, I remembered how my Grandpa would beautifully and smoothly cast his fishing pole into the ocean, far away from him. I recalled wanting to do it just like him, but I didn’t have the knack or experience. Every time I tried to cast my pole, the hook would catch on my wheelchair or on the pier itself. But, Grandpa helped me do it. He was a very special man who taught me many life lessons, even about casting my cares! He always had a way of sharing God’s love!  Years later, there were signs up not to cast your poles anymore when the new pier was built!


BUT Be Brave Be Bold

Daring to live life,

Sadly. there will be some strife,

BUT be brave, be bold.
