We shall get there some day…..


There’s been a cold wind blowing so I’m putting out some seed;
simple bites to strengthen what goes dim when life gets raw.
Gather what you like and take as much as you can carry.
Maybe something that I  scatter will nourish that beautiful flame of yours…….

~  Sometimes her spirit scooped her hands into the sky and they fluttered there,  kissing heaven.

~ She let the weight of her worry be swallowed up in wonder
and took on a holy curiosity about it all.

~ She began to shake off intimidation like bits of sleet from her hair.

~ “You’d be surprised how powerful kindness actually is.
I am not being dramatic;  you can save hearts and lives with grace.
– Jen Hatmaker

“People are not problems to be solved.
They are mysteries to be explored.”
– Eugene Peterson

~ Her feet began to dance,
keeping time with both the fierce and fragile
of her heart.

~”For every complex problem,  there is a solution
that is simple,  clear,  and wrong.”
– H.L. Mencken

~ She knew she carried the pen of her life,
but she drew back from the dark blood of the ink.
So she decided to take up feathers and flowers
and write her songs on the wind.

~ Her courage burned holes through intimidation
until her flame climbed high into the night.

That’s it.
It’s all I ‘ve got.
Random seeds to scatter.
Served up in a leftover pan
Please enjoy whatever bits you fancy:)
I’ll be back with a meal next week.

“Rivers know this:  there is no hurry.
We shall get there
some day.”
– A. A. Milne

    Id say your random seeds are pretty darned good! Beautiful quotes and thoughts and a lovely image. I was thinking about you last night when watching the news, knowing you may be in the serious snow zone. Hope all is well, water stocked, power stays on and you enjoy a safe few days.

    • jennifer on January 27, 2016 at 4:53 pm

      Power stayed on and I can still zip up my jeans so I’d say it was a grand snow event:)
      For some reason I want to gobble up goodies once the streets start to go white.
      It’s a southern thing:)
      Thanks for thinking of me, friend,

      Hope you’re toasty and bathed in light for the rest of the winter, Nancy;
      we kept our power and I made a gazillion sausage balls for an upcoming wedding.
      Nice to see but glad I’m a southern girl:)

    Thank you, friend, for the kind words you left me over at my place. For your kind and generous heart, which never fails to touch mine and leave it a little lighter. Bless you.
