Moments of JOY

When you’ve had so many days of joy

Kisses from heaven

Hugs from those you love most

Surprises

 

 

Woken up to sunlight streaming

through your window

The hint of autumn in the air

 

 

Cuddles with my littlest friend

More moments of joy

Hangs with precious friends.

 

 

Train rides, music and sunsets

City skies

Castles

and bagpipes

Cobbled streets

Quaint little alleyways.

Happiness bucketfuls of it

So much

To be grateful for.

Because life is for

Grasping with both hands

One day at a time

Taking your sparkle

Everywhere

You go.

Autumn Fires

Riding home
through puddles

Mornings with
a crispness in the air
Smelling like autumn
already

Leaves leaving patterns
like little tree paths
on the ground
Old houses
Greet me with a
welcoming smile

All the cracks
like hidden pathways
Transport me to
times gone by

The smell of wood fires
takes me back
To childhood evenings
Roasting chestnuts
in the embers

Watching Dad raking
fallen leaves
All the rustling
reminds me of
Hedgehogs

And autumn walks in the woods
Watching squirrels chase
Each other from branch
to branch

Oh the delights of autumn
When the trees put on
their best show

The best symphony
of many colours
ochre reds, auburn
golden sunbeams

Late evening scribbles

Haven’t written on here in a while. I was feeling quite restless and felt like writing. Here are my scribblings. 
Dreams waking from slumber

Scatterings of stardust 

Falling like confetti 
Endings and beginnings 

all at once.

New songs and old songs 

Adding to the melody

Life’s moments the harmony 
Each step closer to the next chapter 

In life’s great story

Scribblings on my way to work


Putting down some words in response to yesterday’s sickening attack on young people, their parents while they were at a music event in Manchester. Praying for all those affected. 

😢😢😢

Riding home in the rain

Rode home in the rain earlier this evening. It was very refreshing..

and was inspired to do some impromptu song/poetry along the way. 
He loves you just as you are

He loves you just as you are
You are valuable more than you know

You are valuable more than you know
He’ll never let you down 
When you feel so overwhelmed 

sad and alone

He is there 

By your side
He loves you just as you are

He loves you just as you are
When days are joyful and full of splendour 

He loves you just the same

He’s with you always

First scribbles of the year..

Haven’t written much on here lately. Here are some late evening scribbles.. It’s currently untitled..

Sometimes struggles shout louder than they shouldForgetting how far you’ve come

Times of feeling stuck.
But oh daughter of mine you’ve yet 

to see the places you’ll go.

For in the struggle you are stronger

than you realise
Don’t loose heart 

Remember whose you are!

Where you are now is not the end of the 

Story
There are more pages to be woven

into this beautiful tapestry

His love for you runs deep.
Even if at times it feels distant

He’s got your back

Right alongside you.

Every tear that falls down your face

When you feel moments of despair

When things seem so uncertain 
Know that it’s who you are that

matters most

Keep that bright spark of encouragement

Don’t loose sight of that
Lift your head up and smile

For you are beloved of the King 

and He delights in you.

Stepping Stones

Quiet moments often linger.
In the stillness

awe struck
Night sky

Stars twinkling 
Sparking thoughts 

of adventure
Stepping stones 

across streams
Waterfalls crashing 

into pools

of running water
Giant vistas overhead

Whispering clouds 

Silhouettes of sun beams
As the path comes into view

New adventures to be had

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.

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

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
