BE STILL

   BE STILL

Be still in the moment.
Listen, look at life.
Acknowledge Him.
          

 

 

PSALMS 46:10

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! NKJV

As freezing temperatures approached,  I  cut the stem and brought the blooms inside.

Keep Me Focused On The Purpose

While walking in my yard yesterday and I noticed an amaryllis bulb that had grown and produced a  strong stem with a richly colored bud.

Single Amaryllis Bulb Focused on Its Purpose

 

I knew it was  getting ready to open into a beautiful amaryllis flower. This is the first year for one stem to grow by itself. There are many more bulbs at the same spot that have not grown yet.  I was fascinated by this one amaryllis fulfilling its purpose, all alone, yet strong and beautiful. Hence the poem below:

 

focused on the purpose

 

Job 14:1-2
Man born of woman
is short of days and full of trouble.
He blossoms like a flower, then withers;
he flees like a shadow and does not last.
(HCSB)

My first post of the new year. How wonderful to start a new year on this blog.   Thank you to all my followers and supporters.

As we sail through life.                                                                                                                                     The waves may be rough and high.                                                                                                               If Jesus is our captain.                                                                                                                                       Peace will abide.                                                                                       ©GayNell Olive

 

Merry Christmas-Happy New Year

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I am going to be working on my  understanding of formatting and placement of poems so they publish like I post them.  I thank of all of you  who have supported me in something that I never dreamed I could do. Many of you were strangers at first, but now have become friends.
