Flowers give serenity a face and a fragrance.
Words to a poet
are like flowers
to a florist
in a beautiful way
To speak secrets
only the brave
dare to say.
Detours aren’t meant to distress us,
they’re meant to test us.
May we be as
brave and bold
as the crocus
who has endured
both cold and snow
It’s not in the rush, but in the hush, we hear Him speak.
When a poet is still, God fills her quill.
A writer is someone who has learned to listen
and dip their pen deep into thoughts evoked.
No matter how messy things get,
God’s love message is waiting in
the middle of it.
Gratitude is a good rope to grab onto
when we’re tempted to sink under our trials.
When we surrender to God, He surrounds us with serenity.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear,
but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
Blessings of serenity ~ Wendy Mac

Thank you, Pastor Pete. One thing I like about trials is that they slow us down and help us listen to the Holy Spirit better.
Beautiful, Wendy. And so true. I love arranging words. Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you, dear Debbie. Hanging out with online writers is like putting our words in a rock-tumbler–we polish each other and end up with a few gems to share. Much of this post is the result of these conversations. xo

A beautiful post, Wendy. I am reminded of a hymn I learned as a child which has always been my favorite. “This Is My Father’s World”. I don’t remember who wrote it, but they were attuned to nature.
Dear Lavinia, thank you for the lovely compliment. That hymn was the first one I taught to my children. We sang it a lot together during our homeschooling days. Sweet memory. <3
I love all these beautiful pictures and reminders of God’s faithfulness. Oh, how we see it time after time. <3
Thank you, dear Shelli. <3 I'm glad God is a faithful God, and what a blessing we will know Him and be known by Him forever.
