"Inspirations"

These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

ONCE UPON A TIME

Life through eyes of the child
A time of innocence
Everything new
Excitement for adventures yet to unfold
Eager to see; eager to do
Time knows no end

Life through eyes of the adult
A time of growth
The sparkle of life's youth begins to dim
The toil of life weighs heavy
Yet with disciplined commitment he endures
So much to see; so much to do
So very little time

Life through eyes of the aged
A time of wisdom
Life has dealt its hand
So many to love; so many to share
precious memories and wisdom gained through life well lived
Time has grown so short

The people in life he's learned to cherish
But where have his loved ones gone?

 The children have run to greet life head-on
with eager anticipation of what tomorrow may bring
Today, forever lost

The adults, time-worn and weary,
Anguished by tasks left undone
Exhaustion steals today and burdens tomorrow

The cycle of life ~ is it all in vain?

Our Maker lives not in the realm of time
In His Image we were crafted
Our search for meaning unveils our Maker
Light is shed upon our quest

In the innocence of the eager child
With the disciplined commitment of the adult
We purpose to draw from the wealth of wisdom our
cherished aged has acquired and longs to share in love

We experience the cycle of life as it was meant to be
The child grows in discipline
The adult becomes the wiser
The aged, though now old, journeys back in time
revisiting youth in life's tales told ,

"Once upon a time, I lived and learned."
