the sunflowers had withered
gracious had they once stood, competing with the golden hues of the sun, there exuding radiance had been a delight to gaze upon; now left to be fetched when morning came.
withered sunflowers no longer competing with the golden sun
Shapes speak with points of bending. A journey of lines.
Go, go my dear butterfly
On to the garden of flowers you go Don’t ever funk to flutter in wind ‘ll be watching your funny leaps. So gracious from flower to flower Gliding and swimming through the air Rather than flapping your little wings As an artist you turn and twist. Coming and going with ease and will In my garden you dance at thrill On the flowers you sit as still Until get full with honey that fill. Surfeit zest you bring my mind Buried in your flight I forgot mine Unto the sky and heaven I soar To the gracious God, my soul‘ll fly. Teach me dear this art of flying Else I lay buried under soil Raise me with your tiny drifts From hell to heaven I flit at will. Like loving God’s Gracious Butterfly Yonder sky, my dear soul, I will fly!

it may sound crazy, but
do you know how many species of ducks are there ? beautiful, gracious, colorful ducks. well, of course not. because you'd rather spend your time crying over another copy of a swan. -May Colde
try to find the beauty in the unique.
Thank you God for blessings
And your loving tender care For everything you give me And your love with me you share Thank you for the hardship And the suffering I endure The trials and tribulation You'll pull me through for sure No matter what tomorrow holds Good or bad or sad I know that you will be there Like a true and loving dad Through my fears and darkest times Through suffering and through pain You wipe away my every tear You take away my shame My tears before where very tough With many ups and downs But at my weakest moments You took away my frown You always walked beside me No matter where I went And when I wondered and got lost Your Holy Spirit you sent Your love for me is endless With good plans for me I'm sure You have it all worked out my Lord It's love it's kind its pure I am so very weak you know And you so very strong And yet you take the time and care To forgive me for my wrong You polish me and neaten me And cleanse me from within You make me bright and shiny And wash me from my sin I could never find a friend like you Someone so dear and loving That to the cross did go for me And freed me from my sinning I love you Lord and Saviour My father and my friend My Gracious God Almighty My king until the end
I find myself
On a path of white The snow beneath Pure and light The wind is harsh Yet, I not cold As the Sun shines bright And in His warmth I find comfort.
I’m thankful that my sin is weightless Carried by a Father who’s been nothing but gracious I’ve tried to out run Him And He kept up Pouring His Love In this broken cup I’ve tried it all Even danced with the devil At the sinners ball I let him ride And he took the wheel But My God was stronger All it took was to kneel I gave Him my life He took my strife Ive been given new life Through a Son sacrificed all of my sins Now made weightless By a Father who’s been nothing but gracious
