Prayer is the key
to unlock a heart with faith
and lock out all fear
Focus on the best
Build him up and don’t tear down
Stand beside your man
If you believe
you’ll see the glory of God
Walk by faith – not sight
Sunshine on flowers
spotlights creation’s beauty
Basking in limelight
Parcels wrapped with pain
require believing hands
to unwrap the gift
Thank you for gardens
and seeds that I can plant there
Lord of the harvest
First rose of the year
Shed no tears – for winter’s past
Aroma of love
Two hearts joined in love
a journey for a lifetime
Eternal soul mates
May Flower Blessings ~ Wendy
PS – One year ago today I posted my first entry on greenlightlady. I did not start with poetry; however, because of the warm reception I received when I posted one, I decided to come out of my poetry closet. Poems have been pouring out of my heart since childhood.
I would like to thank the following bloggers for either reblogging one of my posts or nominating me for an award. And since I no longer participate in awards – this is my way of sharing the blog love that has been passed my way.
I have found some of my favorite blogs by reading through lists of blogs that others have posted – as I have just done. Be sure to check these out, because you may find a treasure or two suited perfectly for you! xo
And of course do not forget to visit my Bible blog at:
Thank you for your visit to greenlightlady.

Best wishes ~ Wendy
What a great medley, and the poems themselves go together like a bouquet of wisdom and encouragement!
I have seen the best and worst of my kids come out while I’ve been battling a stomach bug for the past day…it’s good to sit and read these reminders of prayer, faith, and love. Have a beautiful weekend–Alison
Also, happy one year blogging anniversary! I’m excited to see what the next year brings!
Thank you, Alison! I hope you are over the bug. My computer died again, so I’m sharing the family one…(lineup time) 🙂
Wendy, thank you; your beautiful pictures and prose have made the world a brighter place.
Thank you, Steve! 🙂 Have a nice weekend.
Beautiful work as always, Wendy!! I like the “Build up” one a lot!!
Thank you, Arindam! My husband likes that one too. 🙂
I love the idea of prayer being a key that “locks out fear”–and I’ll be pondering the “parcels wrapped with pain” one. Lovely photos as well, Wendy. God bless you–love, sis Caddo
Thank you, dear Caddo! I was thinking of “all things can be used for good” when I wrote about parcels. xo
Ahh YES, that’s excellent Wendy–I love having visuals to help me with scripture verses, so I appreciate you helping me out here. This past week, since I was having a crisis, I was struggling with Rom 8:28–so your words are “working” for me today! Love you!
Some more lovely Haikus and flowers here , Wendy. I particularly like Rose and Love. We still await a first rose – now over 4 weeks after last year’s date,
Julian, it’s been rainy here in May. April was sunnier. Our rose is: Rosa Frau Dagmar Hastrup – (Poulsen /1914) It is planted against the south side of a fence – very sheltered. Thank you for your visit. 🙂
I thought it might have been DH … we have it and love it and its usually the first out, but we’re still waiting…Let’s hope it becomes sunnier for you in June…
Like always, beautiful pictures. it helps us all to take a minute and notice the beauty of God’s creation that is all around us. Thanks for continuing to use your talents for His glory. It is a blessing to us all.
Thank you, Rob! Even if poets don’t praise Him, the rocks and hills continue to cry out his name.
The Lord my friend has blessed you with the gift of encouragement.
Thank you, Laurie, for blessing me with such kind words!
Loved it!!! Another beautiful poem. So glad you stepped out of the poetry closet and blessed us all 🙂
Thank you for your kind words, Kimmy!
I loved the one about the parcel wrapped in pain. We’re always happy to receive the “good stuff.” The others – not so much. Thank you for the beauty of your poetry and “picturey”. Thanks also for listing my blog.
Finally, congratulations on the first anniversary! A lot of blessing has gone forth in that time.
Thank you, Von! May all your gifts be wrapped with grace, opened in faith, and filled with joy.
A whole year – you’re just like me. I didn’t start off writing poetry at all – I never even knew I could write poetry, actually. I so love your little gems in this post – especially, the one about unwrapping pain parcels with hands of faith resonates deep within, Wendy. Thank you for your faithfulness in writing God’s truth in such beautiful ways!
Thank you, Melody! Some parcels are wrapped in sandpaper that slough off the roughness of selfishness. Parenthood is a good example of this kind. But under the rough surfaces the softness of deep joy and love are found. I guess I better write another poem…
Sounds like one is bubbling up right now! 🙂
Beautiful combination of words and pictures Wendy. May blessings abound for you.
Abundant blessings to you also, Lyn!
It’s hard to pick a favorite Wendy, these are all beautiful! Congrats on reaching a year, and finding your poetry through the blogging world. We are all blessed to see your images and words. Thanks for the list of other poets, I will check them out.
Thank you, Linda! Your words of kindness have blessed me this morning.
I love to come here with my cup of coffee in the morning. What a blessing to walk with you through your flower garden and smelling the sweet fragrance of Christ through your gracious poetry!!! Blessings and love, dear poet friend!
What a sweet aroma you have sent my way, dear Heidi! I love how your walks in the woods are hand in hand with the Maker of them. There is always a holy hush about your posts that give me peace. xo
“Faith” is my favorite. I needed that little reminder today. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Tami, for the inspirational words you post on your blog.
Back atcha! 🙂
Stunningly beautiful ~ words and photos. thanks
Thank you, Sue! I have been enjoying the flowers you’ve been posting on your blog.
Thanks. You are inspiring me to learn haiku ? Spelling. Love your poetry. Also, of the need for a macro lens! ! Blessings
So many comment Wendy. That is because of you beautiful poetry and photography. Congratulations on one year!
Thank you, Tim! I enjoy both your photography and your art.
Beautiful Wendy! I love all pictures, and especially the fern!!! 🙂 Hugs~
Calee, we seem to have similar photography interests… on Friday I got a picture of a heron eating a fish; but the zoom on my camera is too weak and it turned out very blurry. When I upgrade my camera I know where to find the herons. xo
Beautiful poems and photos, Wendy. I particularly like the bleeding heart flowers.
Thank you! They are my favorite on this post too.
All who seek beauty
Do well to visit this blog
And sup upon joy.
A joy that is shared
is twice over a treasure
Moments of pleasure
Kissing while smiling
Can cause broken enamel
Be smart and loving.
Glad that we’re married
to each other three decades
It has flown by fast
Gorgeous photos as always, Wendy, and expressive haiku. Hasn’t Spring been colourful? Blessings, Mollie
Thank you, Mollie! Roses are starting to take center stage now that the sun is shining again.
I love your poems, and your photos. Happy blogoversay!!!! You inspired me in so many ways. I will be reading your suggestions as far as blogs. Blessings lovely lady. Shazza
Thank you and blessings to you also, dear Shazza!

Thank you, Sheila!

IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR A MAY MEDLEY!!!!
Beautiful words and beautiful images – I particularly like ‘Light’ and ‘Believe.’
Thank you, I enjoy hearing which ones people liked best.
Wendy, as always your photos and words uplift.. I especially love the ones titled “Believe”, “Build Up”, and “Love”. Thanks for sharing your words.
I will catch up with the rest of your newer entries. In the meantime, I will go and fold clothes, my share in this laundry effort. 🙂
Thank you, Imelda! I only post on Fridays on this blog – so I think you haven’t missed any. 🙂
Glorious pictures to accompany your words.do you take them all
Thank you! Yes, I do take them myself – in our garden.
Some really unique flower that I’ve never seen before in your pics. So lovely! The Lord sure does create things in His time. Although it’s so sad when beautiful flowers die off so quickly, I think that’s how we come to appreciate their re-growth again immensely.
Thanks so much for sharing about your own daughter’s swimming lessons. That’s awesome that she got to learn how to! It was really terrible that day that I had almost drowned in that hotel pool so many years ago. There wasn’t a lifeguard and it was another girl around my age then, who had thrown to me a floater, so I was able to pull myself out. Although the experience probably had been less than 2 minutes, it felt like an eternity trying to get outta that water. My sis is thinking about joining the Navy. Not sure if she’ll ever go for it. But I hope she does, so that we can take swimming lessons together beforehand.
It’s always wise to respect the dangers of swimming even if one knows how to swim. I had to be rescued when I was a preteen because I was not paying attention to how deep the water was when I jumped in. I panicked and started to flail around.
I LOVE swimming–but I never swim alone or take chances. ❀
