Morning Dew Breezes

“It shall be in that day,

‘The tongue’ shall ‘sing’!

Open up the flood gates

For the dry lands shall burst forth in spring!

 

Flowers shall bloom,

Plans arise!

Purpose will take root, and

Prosper before your eyes!

 

Sing, oh daughters of Jerusalem,

“Do not stir up love until it pleases…”

Open your mouth wide

For singing begins on morning dew breezes.”

 

“I charge you,

O daughters of Jerusalem,

By the gazelles or the does of the field,

Do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases.”

Song of Solomon 2:7 NKJV

 

“Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,

O daughters of Jerusalem!”

Zephaniah 3:14 NKJV

Opened Heaven’s Door

 

“A friend loves at all times.” Proverbs 17:17

Miss Cheryl and I never exchanged a harsh word between us.

Oh yes, she would “line” me out a time or two,

“Now, Miss Denise”,

But never in anger or a cruel word on her tongue;

Always with kindness and love.

 

I will miss you greatly my friend. From my heart to yours,

 

Opened Heaven’s Door

“She felt deeply for her students, and

Considered each her “dear”.

Listening to their stories;

Counseling them with her ear;

Open to their heartaches,

As she gathered each one near.

 

But Heaven gained a Daughter,

Faithful to the Son.

I know she heard Him say to her,

“Well done My faithful servant, your job on earth is done.”

 

Oh, the Joy ahead, and the Peace to Hope for more.

When Jesus called her to Himself, and

Opened heaven’s door.”

 

In memory and honor of my friend and co-worker during our “season’ of Elementary school together.

Love’s Intimate Wing

“In the night hour,

I hear Your voice call.

Ever gently waking me;

Adventure down the hall.

Snuggled so intimate under the

“Corner of Your wing”.

Faithful promises speak to me,

“Until the daybreak” sings.”

“Take Your maidservant under Your wing.” Ruth 3:9 NKJV

 

Ever so intimate…

“So she lay at His feet until morning, and she arose before one could recognized another.”

Ruth 3:14 NKJV

 

“Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away,

I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh.” Song of Solomon 4:6

Gentle Whisper

“As a gentle whisper oh so near,

Your Voice alone,

I long to hear.

As blooming bud upon the tree,

My soul alone,

I wait for Thee.”

“I wait for the LORD;

My soul waits,

And in His Word I hope;

My soul waits for the Lord…”

Psalm 130:5 ESV

Lifter of Life

“He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” Isaiah 53:3


“Sickness is such a waste.

Disappointed makes its bed.

“Your mercies are new every morning.”

Bringing Life,

The “oil of gladness”,

To what was once dead!”

“But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,

My glory and the

One who lifts up my head.” Psalm 3:3 (NKJV)

The Hope of “Romantic Love”

The last one to share. This essay really touched my heart. I pray you have been blessed reading the thoughts and hearts of fifth grade children.


Fifth Grade Boy

“Romantic love to me means: someone who you care enough for that you’d do anything for and they care enough for you to do the same thing, or family. As some people like to call it, that is what I call romantic love is: never wanting to be away from one certain person, that’s what romantic love is to some people.

To all romantic love is the thing that bonds people together. To some it is hope, it is the thing that everybody needs, without it, we’d be lost, we would be emotionless robots.”

Written by a Fifth grade boy in a single parent house.

Love is in the air in Elementary!
