The Days of Youth

~~~

As I walk along this familiar path,

Yesterdays return to me.

Those days of youth so long ago,

Thoughts of home and family.

 ~

Summer love that warmed my heart,

That first kiss in the pouring rain.

Embracing, vowing, ever to be,

Then summer ended, as did the dream.

 ~

Age has found its place in me,

As I recall what used to be.

Memories of yesteryears,

Thoughts of home and family.

Another Sleepless Night

Softly, without notice,

light blends to darkness.

Like cat paws…

night sounds begin

to call my name.

 

Quietly, I lay awake

listening to the silence.

In the dark…

Thoughts of morning

Within my mind.

He Calms the Storm

“He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.”* A passage from the book of Psalms. A thought for another day in this busy world. You don’t have to sail alone…let Him help you.

* NKJV

A Place Called Home

And a sailor returns from the sea.

Life is a journey that can take us along many a path to places yet unknown. Along the way, there is joy and sadness…smiles and tears, but when the journey is almost over, thoughts of home come to mind.

It is easy to walk in the woods and lose your sense of direction; though you might think you are walking in a straight line, you could be walking in a circle, eventually returning to where your journey began.

Sometimes, you have to leave home to find it again. Perhaps, that is where life’s journey leads all of us one day…back to a place called home.
