Jesus Leads Me ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Jesus leads me,
on paths upright
and I follow Him
much to His delight.

He guides me in ways,
I didn’t even know
and I trust the right one
to me He will show.

Jesus leads me,
in times of drought
He helps me through
periods of doubt.

For He satisfies,
my hunger and thirst
tis why each morning
I seek His face first.

Jesus leads me,
now and to the end
for He is my one . . .
true eternal Friend.

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 58:11

And the Lord shall guide thee
continually, and satisfy thy soul
in drought, and make fat thy bones:
and thou shalt be like a watered garden,

and like a spring of water,
whose waters fail not
.

Psalm 48:14

For this God is our God
for ever and ever: he will
be our guide even unto death.

Fresh Start

Peacock Poetry

In the coming weeks being intentional about how I show up feels all the more important. I know that starting my morning by some meditation, movement and intention setting is a great way to set me up for the day ahead. When I ground my intention in with the breath it further deepens my connection to the energy that I am sourcing. What is your intention today?

Calling In

I’m tuning into what I need, I’m purposeful and present

Our focus – energetic seeds, there’s power in intention

I’m tapping in to what most serves, a grounded joy is growing

Awake to all the learning curves, there’s trusting and there’s knowing

I’m breathing in to dignity, I’m leaning in to being

Embracing opportunities, with my own self agreeing

With good thoughts our hearts we must feed and then for sure we’ll bloom

I’m tuning into what I need, I’m present…

Starting A New Year ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I’m starting a New Year,
putting the last behind . . .
for, God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

I don’t know what it’ll be,
not sure where it’ll lead
but, God will guide me
as His word I read.

Not sure what to expect,
don’t yet know the direction
but, God will steer me
if I give Him my attention.

I don’t know what I will do,
so, I’m praying as I go . . .
for, I know God has a plan
and the way He will show.

I’m starting a New Year,
just like the one before . . .
trusting God with the future
whatever may be in store!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

Matewan Train Station, Matewan, West Virginia

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad

Train Station Replica, Matewan, West Virginia

In the southwestern region of the U.S. state of West Virginia on the border with the U.S. state of Kentucky is the small town of Matewan.  It may not be a famous town, but it had a few events that took place here.  The town played a role in the feud between the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s.  (A movie of the same name tells the story of the feud.  Kevin Costner is an actor in the film.)  It was also the site of what is known as the Battle of Matewan, a battle that took place on May 19, 1920, between local coal miners and a detective agency that came to evict some coal miners from a nearby camp.  Ten people died to include the mayor of Matewan.  Another thing about Matewan was that it was a stop on the Norfolk and Western Railway.  The…

Moon Moment

Peacock Poetry

The moon was hypnotically bright yesterday as I went for my morning walk. Its presence was so clear and so unavoidable that it impacted my energy in a big way. When we attune to the moon we are aligned with the beauty of truth and our connection to the divine feels direct, beautiful and intense.

Moon Sayer

The moon proclaimed its dignity, its silver shine was proof

A striking morning gift to me; there’s kindness in our truth

Assured and round, clear and profound, my eyes were drawn into it

Our questions may go round and round but deep inside we knew it

We can’t escape our natural state, a waste the self-delusion

When we let show what resonates we make far less confusion

It’s graceful boldness jigged in me, cool, bright yet not aloof

The moon proclaimed its dignity, its silver shine was proof

Hopeful hearts

Rum and Robots

Poem by Joni Caggiano and Photograph by Zelle Duda from Unsplash

 

like ducks in rain, we went splashing
kissing me tenderly melting fiery lips swell
throwing back our wet heads elatedly laughing

my thin hips and round breast show
whiffs of lavender with a hint of musk smiles
picking me gently skyward, touching my face slow
he will ask me to marry, he already knows I will say no

exploring each other one last time
strong jaw now quivering as tears run down
why do you have to leave my hopeful heart behind

Take My Life Lord ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Take my life Lord,
mold and change it
so into Your hands
I’ll be able to fit.

Do what only,
I know You can do . . .
so I may be bound
always right to You.

Take my heart Lord,
wash it sparkling clean
so Your image in me
can by all be seen.

Let Your light glow,
from deep inside
so other may know
together we abide.

Take my life Lord,
and my heart too
make them reflect
my love for You!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 64:8

But now, O Lord,
thou art our father;
we are the clay,
and thou our potter;
and we all are the
work of thy hand.
