God's Love And Mercy



As I sit here in my little corner of the world watching the sunrise and sunset, the days seem to be feeling more like summer and passing by way to fast.. Or maybe it's just me, not taking time to smell the flowers along the way..I know in this busy world we live in there's not much time to do the things we'd like, and there are things that can't be helped, like sickness etc..but I do try my best to Thank My God everyday for allowing me  to get out of bed each morning and for all the blessings that he does bestow on me everyday...
 For without him I would be nothing, I'm so sorry that I don't post as much as some but to be honest, it seems there's a lot going on this time of year. I've been planting my garden and yesterday I finally took the much anticipated step of getting my annuals and hopefully have them in the ground soon..I love my flowers..Then we all have to mow occasionally, I put that mildly. I try and help my husband out with that too, since he still works on a job.. But I love being outside and enjoying all the beauty that God has graced us with.. It's such a beautiful time of year..
No excuses here just facts, hope no one leaves my blog and I appreciate your patience and cherish your wonderful friendship..Hope you enjoy this little poem I wrote a while back..

                                          God's Love And Mercy

                                         I may walk the dark hills of sadness
                                         my mind may be torn in disarray
                                         God sees and he answers the call
                                         and puts sunshine back in my day

                                         My heart may be heavy burdened
                                         tears of sorrow are life's bittersong
                                         he reaches out his hand to me
                                         and the tears and burdens are gone

                                         Life is full of trials and tribulations
                                         and the clouds do over-shadow the sun
                                         but God's love and mercy is forever
                                         until my life on earth is done.

  6. Susie, exquisite writing today...I love the photo and of course the poem. Our days do seem to travel faster the older we get, I agree~ It's a busy time of the year but I think God presents his world in even more spectacular happenings so we stop to take note of the world around us...the new growth, the sunshine radiating our our skin, vegetables to nurture...ahhhh, love it!

  7. I won't be leaving, Susie; your writing is much too interesting to miss. I'm not posting new things as often as when I started. I want to keep the quality of my writing before the quantity.

    This was another wonderful poem. Thanks!

  9. Hi Susie! I loved reading this poem, it is so heartfelt and encouraging. I would never leave your blog either. I think it is wonderful that you love your flowers so and have so many interests. Life really does get busy sometimes. I haven't been writing near as much as I usually do as well and have been finding it hard to keep up with my comments. I think life just gets like that sometime. So don't feel like you have to apologize, because I know we all want you to enjoy your blog and not feel pressured. I went on a little trip this week to Atlanta with my family. We had such a good time. We got to see a play and go to the botanical gardens! The flowers were beautiful, especially the orchids. My goodness they were beautiful and exotic. They had a huge building that was divided into different rooms, that held orchids from various parts of the world. One huge room had tall palms and ferns and felt like we were walking through the rain forest. It was such a refreshing trip and we went at a nice slow pace so I was able to keep up. I have some pictures over on my blog today. I hope you have a lovely evening ahead! Until next time...With Love, Delisa :)
