Late evening musings

There are perks to being a reluctant night owl at times. It’s usually these times when I’m most inspired to write. 

Tonight’s musings. Currently untitled.
Summer nights
No slumber

Thoughts 

Rushing too and fro
Sweet silence of the night

Longing to return

to a place my heart 

calls home

Even now

Still in wonder

of the glorious creation

He has made 
Of mountain tops

Sunrises

Stormy nights

and thunder 
Bright sunsets 

Clouds and embers

River reflections
Still in wonder

New adventures in familiar places 

So after my USA adventures.. Another new adventure has begun. I got off a 7 1/2 flight.. Got a train back to Yorkshire. Packed and headed up to Lancashire. 

I am loving being nearer my sister and brother-in-law.. I’m also enjoying lodging with wonderful friends Amy and Matt.

And views like this.

  
and this..

  
 

Happy birthday USA.. 4th July Celebrations

  
Had great fun celebrating USA Independence Day with some new friends.. A whole evening early on July 3rd.. The fireworks display was at Long’s Park in Lancaster Pennsylvania. 

It was a little strange to be celebrating the independence of a former British Colony. But still fun.

Please don’t loose your wonder 

  

Please don’t loose your wonderOf the small

But beautiful moments
And remember that you are His

And He is yours 

Who conquered the grave 

for you 
And set the stars in the sky

Just because 

And brought heaven down to earth 
Scattered wildflowers in meadows

To wander through

And to enjoy

The butterflies dancing amongst 

in the late evening light

Spring Days

Spring days filled with wonder

at the beauty of creation
Capturing moments

Standing in awe
Ever thankful

for each moment
Taking it in like a breath of fresh air

So good for the soul
In the stillness

calm waters

hope arises
As we wait.

On dreams

Some thoughts on dreams..

I’ve come to realise recently that some dreams in our hearts don’t need to be forever.. For me they seem to evolve and grow.. And encourage me to believe that better things are ahead..
They don’t need to stay stagnant. But I know I’ve also been one to let dreams lay dormant.
When you want to see something come to pass but don’t yet have the courage to jump in a the deep end. For me one of those dreams is to have a photography business in family and kids portraits and photo shoots. 
Another one is to publish my poems (that is still a work in progress).
There is something powerful in speaking about it even though it’s not yet come to pass
I’m okay with not knowing the how.. That will come in time.
Dreams come in a size too big so that we may grow into them.
