Thankful Goodness

“My heart is filled with wonder, a good and pleasant theme.

Thanksgiving to my Savior, Who never, no, not once, forgot or abandoned me.

Thankful for His goodness, drawing me each day.

His beauty seen in nature; for He is the only way.

Sunrises on the morning,

Light in rainy days,

Protection when darkness hovers,

Correction when I’ve lost my way.

I’m thankful for Your Presence,

Immanuel with me.

For in Your Peace and Kindness,

My heart sings out to Thee!”


I will worship You, Yahweh, with extended hands as my heart erupts with praise!

I will tell everyone everywhere about Your wonderful works!

I will be glad and shout in triumph.

I will sing praise to Your exalted name, O Most High.”

Psalm 9:1&2 The Passion Translation


My family and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today as it is my son’s day off from work.

Blessings to you and your family as we embrace this week of Thanksgiving!

The Chorus of the Sleeping Sounds

This morning's harvest moon - October 2015
This morning’s harvest moon – October 2015

I woke in the early morning

hours to hear our nearby

Hoot owl hooting.

I thought,


“I haven’t heard the

Night owl

Since the last

Full moon.

Is there something

About its’ light

That makes him

Croon his tune?”

poem by denisebalog


 

Waking this morning

To remember a

Little poem I wrote

Last month,

Under another

Bright,

Harvest Moon.

September's Harvest Moon -2015
September’s Harvest Moon -2015

“There’s silence all around.

Soft breathing,

Sleeping sounds.

Then I hear

The Hoot Owls’ call.

Did he sleep the night

At all?

Does he watch the

Night away?

Sleeping at the

Break of day?

Mr. Hoot Owl sing your song;

Calling me to join along.

Amidst the darkness and

The stars,

He hoots another chorus bar.”

“The LORD is your Keeper;

the LORD is your shade 

on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike

you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you

from all evil;

He will keep your life.

The LORD will keep 

your going out and

your coming in

from this time 

forth and 

forevermore.” 

Psalm 121:5-8 (ESV)


 

A Song of Ascents

sung by pilgrims walking 

many miles to 

“go up to Jerusalem”

for the yearly feasts.

The Lord is so sweet to

have provided them 

bright moon lite nights

while sleeping outside

far from the safety

of their homes.

“Forevermore!”


 

blessings, 

denise
