Grandson Hanan Samuel, 3 ish
Watching Hanan see the World
Spider, bug,
Ant and bee
In my garden,
At my knee.

Provide a show
For this young one,
Eyes tuned tight
In midday sun.
He alone can see them move
We pass so fast his dawdling proves
Were we more still
We’d find delight

Through childs’ sight. ~~~~~~~~~~~ I wrote this several years ago when our son and his wife and Hanan lived with us. I remember when he was a toddler and he enjoyed crawling around in our yard....there are spiders galore this year--he would love it!

Missing Peace

Sometimes I don't know which direction I'm going

until I open my mouth and speak
and my Father gives the words.

Sometimes I don't know what I'm missing
until the piece presents itself
and I realize, 'wow, there it is!'

Then I am at peace.

Philippians4:6,7 Amplified "6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. 7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
