The Ballad of Unity

Dedicated to Mother Emanual A.M.E. Church

When I stand alone

I cannot hear the music

but when instead I hold your hand

the lyrical voices of freedom, hope, love and peace

make my heart soar!

Joy In The Lord Is Like . . .

Martha L Shaw - Poet, Writer, Author, Artist

If  these were leaves

And I was five again,

I would leap into the air,

Land in a giggling heap of joy,

Then raise my arms in gleeful abandon

And do it all over again!

I just might anyway!

Matthew 18:3New International Version (NIV)

The Gift of Faith

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

Lily

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly, come Spring, had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today!
