Springtime Dreams

Springtime Dreams

In a sanctuary calm and truly simplistic,

My creator God is quite artistic

His purpose soothes both body and mind,

With natures melody and aroma combined.

to dream

夷s like a beautiful song

Gone is the coldness of a long dreary winter,

Finest d矇cor softened each frosty splinter

Nothing and everything seems symbolic,

Yet匈 long to be free and enjoy a frolic.

to dream

夷s to explore the memories

Comfort is found in this heavenly bliss,

Visions of spring like a treasured kiss

Spirals of colour emerge from a wistful maze,

Fresh new scents mingle in this gentle haze.

to dream

夷s just the beginning

Natures chorus awaken the senses,

And kindles some odd but natural defences

Will today bring forth the finest occurrence?

Inside, I feel the Creators assurance.

to dream

夷s the joy of new life to come

Earth soaking rains fade like distant thunder,

A moment in time stretched forth in wonder

To picture the beauty of Gods great creation,

Or圯njoy the aroma of the first carnation.

to dream

夷s to nurture fresh desires

Awaken me, Lord, from these springtime dreams–

Allow me to soar above nature’s extremes

On wings lifted high by the purest sunshine,

Embraced by the fragrance of sweet Mountain Pine.

to dream

夷s the heart of spring

Blue skies above, soft greens below,

Images of the creator all around me aglow

Transform me, Lord, for your intended calling,

Fill my day with new life exploring.

to dream

夷s the essence of living

Baby birds and honey bees,

Instil the air with praises and jubilee

Take me high on graceful wings; Gods finest art.

Let new life emerge from this butterflys heart.

to dream

夷s to dream a springtime dream

Advice Please

So, today my 27 inch Apple Mac’s hard drive finally died. I’ve bought it back in 2011 and knew it backwards and inside out, right down to the downloaded Photo Impressions App I use to added copyright and poems to my photographs for Riverside Peace.

I can’t afford a replacement PC so I have transferred every thing I needed to my Microsoft Surface Thingy. Yeah, I know. I need to work out how to use it.

The only thing I didn’t get to move across from the Mac was the Photos Impressions App and I can’t find one like it I on Google Search. I’d love some advice on where I to find the App or one like it. It was a free download and I’ve used it since 2011 and updated it when needed. I can’t recall the exact name for that particular app only “Impressions”.

All suggestions appreciated.

Afraid?

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)

Are you afraid of anything? Im afraid of answering machines. You know, when you are all ready to speak to someone over the phone and suddenly your listening to a recorded voice that says something like: Please leave a short message and well get back to you shortly.

Your fear may be going to the dentist, speaking in front of an audience or even the fear of spiders. Mmm匈 have to admit I dont like spiders either but whatever your fear is, we all have experienced times in our life when we are afraid.

Todays Bible verse gives us some hope when it comes to fear. It tells us to “not be afraid”. We dont have to be afraid because we have a hope that others do not have. We know that God will strengthen us and help us in each situation that we face.

Our Father knows the future and the past and has boundless amounts of wisdom helps us in even the most difficult of times. God is on our side and He is always walking with us and through any situation that we might face, we can see why He tells us to not be afraid. God wont let us down, so we have no reason to be afraid.

Simple? No not at all but when you come face to face with your fear, remember that our Father is always with you.

Father, we thank you that you with us even in times we have to face our fears. Help us to remember the words of promise that You are our God and that you will strengthen us and helps us. Amen

Abigails Special Birthday Gift

Abigail Hyatt was almost seven and her daddy let her choose where to have her birthday party. It had been a sad winter and a party was a good idea.

‘Can we have it at the park, Daddy?’ Abigail asked.

‘Which park, Abigail?’

‘The big one, Daddy the one Mummy loved. You know… the one where we threw the rose petals after her funeral.’

‘If thats where you want it, then thats where we shall have it.’ Daddy kissed the tip of her nose.

Abigail smiled. ‘Ill help with the invitations but we have to invite Grandpa and Grandma Lawson. Do you think theyll come, Daddy?’

‘You can ask them. They would like that.’

Her smile faded. I wish they didnt live so far away. Do you think Grandpa and Grandma miss Mummy, too?

‘Im sure they do. I would miss you, my darling daughter, if you had died. Now, lets not be sad. Mummy would want us to enjoy your party.’

‘I want to wear the party dress Mummy bought me last year.’

‘Abigail, honey, I dont think it will fit. You have grown so tall. Why dont we go to the mall tomorrow after school and see what we can find?’

‘Okay, Daddy.’

Finaly the party day arrived. It was a sunny day and the park had lots of spring flowers growing in the gardens. Abigail could see her grandparents at the end of the short path that led to the playground. They were tying balloons on swings and trees. There were two picnic tables. One had lots of party food on it and the other held a huge birthday cake with pink icing.

‘Grandma! Grandpa!’ Abigail called and ran to meet them.

‘Abigail! You look so grown up and your party dress is so pretty,’ Grandma said, smiling.

‘Its Mummys favourite colour. Do you think shed like it?’

‘I think its perfect, Grandpa said.’

‘Abigail,’ Daddy said quietly. Your friends have arrived.’

She looked up at Daddy to ask him to greet them for her, but he was wiping something out of his eye. Grandma hugged Abigail. Abigail knew Grandma was crying too so she hugged her as well. ‘Oh Grandma, I miss Mummy soooo much, but she would want us to enjoy the party.’

Grandpa hugged them both ‘Yes, she would. Now go and meet your friends and enjoy the afternoon.’

Abigail greeted her friends and opened her presents. A clown skipped into the playground, making the children laugh. He twisted balloons to form the shape of little animals, stood on his hands and spun hoops on his feet. Abigail thought it was the best party ever.

Abigail was too excited to go to bed that night. After her bath, she dressed in her new summer night gown, and sat on Grandpas knee while he read her favourite story: Noahs Ark. She knew it almost by heart because her mummy had always read it before she went to sleepsometimes twice.

‘Abigail, Daddy said, coming into the room with a glass of milk. Grandma and Grandpa Lawson want to talk to you.’

Abigail felt suddenly afraid. Daddy had said something like that when Mummy got sick. She remembered that Mummy was crying and Daddy told her they would be okay. Abigail climbed off her grandpas knee and went to her daddy.

‘Its all right, Abigail, Grandma smiled at her. Everything is OK.’

‘You see, Daddy said, lifting Abigail onto his knee, we all miss Mummy very much and…’

‘What your daddy is trying to say, is that we miss your mummy, too, Grandma continued. But, we also miss you and your daddy.’

Grandpa sat on the floor in front of Daddy and Abigail reached down to hug his neck.

Grandpa took a deep breath. ‘Grandma and I want to move in with you and Daddy, at least until we get a house close by. Your daddy and I talked about it a lot and we think your mummy would like it. What do you think?’

‘This is the best birthday gift ever! Can they live with us, Daddy please?’

‘Abigail, this is your birthday gift. Its up to you.’ Daddy was laughing now. He hadnt laughed for a long time.

She jumped off her daddys knee and hugged her grandpa and her grandma. ‘Please come and stay Ill even let you call me Abby. Mummy always called me Abby.’
