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
God's palate

must be open to it!

God of Majesty
He rises in the morning
Prevails in all things


Will be at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods this weekend on a retreat/gathering of Providence Associates.  Pray with us!!!

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!!!
