Hello, friends! Inspiration is still a bit on the slow side just now, but really wanted to share something with you today as we close this hard year and look towards new beginnings. πŸ™‚

2 Cor.2:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Just as a butterfly’s wrap must

Come before it’s shed away,

The hour before dawn is darkest, they say.

The heavy drapery of night sky

Shrouds the approaching sun,

Yet, second upon second draws the

Sweet unveiling nigh.

Paintstroke by paintstroke,

Color invades

Until a fresh page of living has begun.

And, so we lay aside the year gone by…

Cruel as it’s been,

From the fingers of time it gently


And, blessedly, we can find in Him

Burgeoning new wings;

We can embrace the arriving


And the renewed strength it brings!

Heartaches we will yet face this year,

No lie,

But, when we seek the Lord,

We will yet discover new ways in Him

To fly.

Blessings and prayers on your New Year, my friends! I pray we can find fresh resolve to seek Him in this time He grants us and discover new ways to soar! Thanks for reading and sharing 2020 with me with all its ups and downs! ❀❀❀

  1. God is the centerpiece of your posts; our God reigns, above the death and disease in this present world. May we look to our savior Jesus Christ for our sins. Thank you for your posts! May the Lord continue to bless you.


      1. It’s rather freeing… no stats and no dwindling follow numbers… or weird followers…

        I reckon I’ll do this until people get tired of me or I get tired of it.
