*blowin’ in the wind

earth’s richest

black prairie sod

iowa: “beautiful land”

created by God

claimed by man

wrested from dakota hand

busted, homesteaded,

settled, plowed and

tightly fenced now

as livestock farmers

raise calves from cows

how long sustainable?

dust bowl-like shroud

wind so untamable

we’re losing ground!


*Title from a favorite Bob Dylan song…he recently received a Nobel Peace Prize.  (One good thing about a wet fall this year is less dirt in the air.)

spiritual fine tuning

 

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

                                        (Mahatma Ghandi)

 

let us love, brothers

find our unity with joy

harmony in Christ

 

repent, believe, become real

let soul revival begin…

 


Connecting with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s prompt today…many directions you could go with the theme of happiness!  

matthew henry’s commentary

 

Jesus is healer

his word is “panpharmacon

– salve for every sore”

whatever the affliction

no matter the addiction

 

(Matthew 4:23-25)

Tell me, what’s more American than Charles Schulz and Peanut M & M’s?!

If chocolate-covered Peanuts don’t inspire you, I don’t know what else would 😉

an attitude of gratitude

Day 2 of Mira’s 3 Days/3 Quotes challenge…and linking to dVerse poets

Have you read Ann Voskamp’s book, one thousand gifts?    a holy experience


“An attitude of gratitude”

may seem a simple platitude

But learning to appreciate

small blessings given makes life great

Give thanks for colored leaves on trees

give thanks for buzzing honey bees

I’m grateful to be breathing air

i’m thankful Shondra cuts my hair

Sneak sniff of flower petals sweet

taste gladly everything you eat

Give thanks for babies’ soft new skin

give thanks for sleep at home with kin

Be happy for bright shining stars

take care of Earth, can’t live on Mars

We give our thanks to God above

for sharing His abundant love

Increase your joy, expand your mind

count every blessing you can find!

Hey, look at that…i even rhymed 🙂

we pass thru vale (veil) of tears

 

we’re all refugees

orphans searching for hearts’ home

when peace cries last tears
