Joy in Haiku

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
God's Creation!

must be open to it!
As Lent begins, I'm called to reflect of the emptiness one might find in the desert.  And yet that is where the Savior went to pray.  It is void of distraction except for the occasional bird, screech owl, snake.  There is quiet and serenity!  How can it be empty if it was created by God?

Desert, serene,
And quiet contemplation.
There's fullness of life.


Thanks be to God!!!


Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!! 

I'm also joining Lou Ceel at Haiku Friday.  Come play with words.  It's such a joy!!!

Mosaic/ Macro Monday

Desert Beauty 1
Being here in Tucson has offered me the opportunity to reflect on those things I take for granted and the things I learn to appreciate.  

I have taken for granted the diversity of peoples and the ways they live.  I forget that all that is created by God has value and worth, even the cactus and the dry earth. Never must I forget these things and become so complacent in my environment that I allow these insights to lose their importance.

The desert beauty
Under the winter sun gives
The hope of New Spring

Thanks be to God!!!


Stop by  The Little Red House and offer words of encouragement to Mary.  Mosaic Monday is postponed this week due to the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.   Visit Macro Monday,  too.  Lisa has a wonderful time planned for you.  The pictures all are an inspiration!
