Dear friends...

Today is my birthday!

God has blessed me so much this past year - He's taught me the meaning of His strength, His joy, and His peace no matter what circumstances I'm facing. He's blessed and enriched my life - and I can't wait to see what is in store for this next year!

On this occasion, I thought it would be fitting to share one of my poems with you. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Stop and savor
The flavor
Of God’s presence.

 Just the way the sky looks,
Peace floating in the air,
A song carrying the breeze,
Joy coming from nowhere.

Satisfaction striking me
With sudden clarity.
Love sparkling my sight
With all the creativity of light.

Oh, stop and savor
The flavor
Of God’s presence –
In this world,
In this life,
In me.
