Walk with Me

Walk with Me by Allison Brown Walk with me. Walk with me and notice… notice the sound of the ocean waves. Notice the birds dancing in the shore break. Notice the warmth of the sun that comforts your soul. Notice children laughing, and loved ones holding hands. Notice white feathers on the shore reminding youContinue reading “Walk with Me”

The Ultimate Sacrifice

The Ultimate Sacrifice by Amy Remer It was a cool September morning.  Dew covered the tips of the grass.  The house was dark and quiet.  Such a calm moment as I opened my eyes.  My husband was still asleep, as were our four children.  I just wanted to stay in that moment forever and notContinue reading “The Ultimate Sacrifice”

Woven

Woven by Emily Boulter He  weaves with thread dyed colors you have not yet seen. Colors that fold in and out that frame and trace your journey. Do not think you can undo His work. Tapestries are always two-sided. While you dwell… gazing at the backside ribbed with knots, remember. You only see distortion. TheContinue reading “Woven”

Steps to Picking Raspberries

Steps to Picking Raspberries by Jody Collins First, avoid the bumblebees zooming in for latent sugar dripping in the rain, their heavy soaking reflected in drops from satiated rubies you hope to pop in your mouth.

Light Dancing

Light Dancing by Charlotte-Anne Allen Light dancing on splashes of gold, red, and orange beckons to passers-by. Greens and browns wave their fronds, seasons past and to come. Evening’s chill brings thoughts of tomorrow, as time tolls; prepare! Day’s warmth welcomes memories of life, laughter, and tears. And so we dance, welcoming light’s hope, inContinue reading “Light Dancing”

Mountain Metaphor

Mountain Metaphor by Leslie McLeod Like the stoic evergreens that flanked the steeply ascending trail, our marriage had long survived—scarred but strengthened through seasons of drought, infestation, lashing storms. Love compelled me to climb.  He had invited, hoping to inspire my fitness and long life.  I had accepted, hoping to share in his passion forContinue reading “Mountain Metaphor”

When I Fail to be Faithful

When I Fail to be Faithful by Leslie Jones I watch the waves lap at the shoreline from my seat on the beach, the glistening Sea of Galilee spread before me. Kicking off my sandals, I lift my face skyward, relishing the warmth of the afternoon sun. My eyes close as a slight breeze rufflesContinue reading “When I Fail to be Faithful”

Infinity Within

Infinity Within by Sarah Freymuth Smoke rises into the night, plumes of flame in the barrel. Stars scattered across the sky; Milky Way bow tie stretched against the black. My friend Jordan and his pipe, sweet scent of tobacco. We scan the dark, silent water, which stretches on and on, shrouded in the back ofContinue reading “Infinity Within”
