With fresh eyes
Of a brighter tomorrow
A new start and beginning
No residue of old 
To carry from this year
Into another 
As this one closes out
We roll into a 
New Fresh year 
With new resolute
With the end prize in mind
A new chapter to unfold

A celebration of a fresh look

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas lays in the hands of my Lord and Savior. I 

ask that you and Him could bring peace and reconciliation to those

broken and wounded hearts and souls. That we all could see the

glory of Gods hand on this land and His presence of perfect love

and peace. To be able to see joy and laughter in the simple things of

life. I ask that each child would get their dream come true under the

tree. That the Lords perfect unconditional love would prevail. That

No one would be alone on Christmas Day. That the Lord would so

full them up; that they would know how perfectly loved they truly

are. I ask all these things from my broken wounded heart.......the

faith I feel I have lost.........the loneliness I feel everyday. The joy of

life's simple pleasures that has been lost in pain and sorrow. I want

no one to feel this pain or loss of emptiness and lost of hope and

faith, that I have been experiencing throughout these past ten

months. I ask these things in hopes of finding what I have lost in

finding them for others. That the joys of Christmas, the songs, the

lights, the laughter, sitting on your lap and telling you my secret 

wish Santa; that I too would find what I wish for others in my heart.

That I can see that dreams do come true and that there are happy

endings with the Masters touch and the magic of Christmas; when

things seem so frozen in time; yet fresh and new in the hands of our

Savior. Thank you Santa for bring the perfect Christmas gift to each

and all of us this Christmas season.

Thank you Santa.

Merry Christmas!

Nude, adjective: wearing no clothes; naked; depicting or performed by naked people; (especially of hosiery) flesh-colored; noun: a naked human figure, typically as the subject of a painting, sculpture, or photograph; flesh color.

With each season
There comes a makeshift of days
As the days grow shorter
Each wave of each new day
The beauty comes
Into full bloom
As Winter approaches
Each day changes quickly
From the Fall beauty of rich color
To the nude beauty 
Of Winter
Iced in the Winter wonderland
Each scene
Frozen in time
As Christmas approaches
With its rush of excitement
The lights go up 
In a twinkle 
As the crisp night air dips
We lackadaisical stroll 
Through the Winter wonderland
With a blink of an eye
Spring is here
From nude beauty
To budding new life
With new hopes and new dreams
To be full filled
Than suddenly
Summer is upon us
Adventures awaiting
One by one
Running and playing
In lackadaisical fun!
Each season 
A makeshift of excitement
Just waiting for each one
To be discovered

Three Word Wednesday

Habitual, adjective: done or doing constantly or as a habit, regular; usual.

Illustrious, adjective: well known, respected, and admired for past achievements.

Jumbled, verb:  mix up in a confused or untidy way.

The broken vase holds
The shattered heart 
Of broken glass
Jumbled memories of days gone by
The past creeping its ugly head
The habitual pain of repeated mistakes
As illustrious as the present is
The jumbled memories of the past
From the habitual pain
Remains forever present
Is history repeating 
Even in the illustrious present
In the  old vase holds
All the broken glass
Fragments and pieces
Of a shattered heart
Creating a illustrious vision
Mirrors of illusions
Of the present
All jumbled together
Like a puzzle
Waiting to be put together
Is the heart forever broken?
In the vase shattered glass
In habitual pain
Jumbled in glistening 
Teardrops of a broken heart
Stained and broken
Awaiting the touch
Of the Master

Just Another Day

Well today has been a bit adventurous for me. My cell phone has been acting up. So I have been babying it for some time. I really don't want to purchase a new cell don't really have the money for one. So between last evening and today we managed to get it back up and running. YEA! I need to baby it for at least another 6 months. Love Samsung and AT&T between them both we managed to get it up and running and then went and purchased a new battery. Got a few lessons in phone care. Don't ever leave phone charging over night nor charge for more than four hours at a time. Could become very dangerous and make the battery explode. Also if phone is getting hot there is a battery issue. Yes, you can baby the phones and stretch there life expectancy slightly as I am doing. But most be willing to take the time to go in and have them check it and make sure it is functions and has all the current up dates. A bit of work but well worth it. This was about a six hour adventure between last evening and today. But glad I did as I really couldn't afford the purchase and contract of a new phone.

This is a photo of a battery that exploded in a phone which is on the left hand side. Mine is on the right and they said it was well on its way to doing what the one did on the left. So very thankful it didn't explode.

Enigmatic, adjective: difficult to interpret or understand; mysterious.

Faulty, adjective: working badly or unreliably because of imperfections, (of reasoning and other mental processes) mistaken or misleading because of flaws, having or displaying weaknesses.

Enigmatic with his faulty grovel
With all eyes on him
Knowing he would 
Make a grand stand
Only to loss the girl in the end
Because of his faulty grovel
Not the enigmatic personality
He once stirred
As a young man

Electric Issues

Hello bloggie friends and world! has been a storming day and have lost my electricity today. Which usually wouldn't bother me. But today we had the electrician out to do repair work on the electricity as there is some electric issues in the home. looks as though it will be tomorrow before it gets fixed. It has been on the outage since Friday evening. I think I have always suspected there where issues since we moved here...but it finally surfaced and made its self known. time for the repairs to begin. Also hoping to get the rest of my new windows in before the end of the year. The gentleman that was hired has been sick. Praying he is well soon and the weather clears enough for him to finish the job. Have lots of little home repairs and improvements going on. Need to finish up the master bathroom . The shower has some problems and now it is ready to be painted then shower head put on. The joys of home ownership and home improvements. Always a little surprise here and there. 
As I re~start my blogging please bare with me as I feel my way and the direction I want to take my blog. Not really sure which direction I'm going to go. Right now it just feels good to do a little bit of journaling as I regain my footing and direction that I would like to go with my blog. It also feels good just to journal whats on my mind and heart until I make some clear decisions. As i just really want to get back into the habit of working on my blog once again. Thank you each for your patience's as I go through this process. 

This is a foot bridge heading to one of the little hiking trails at the Painted Hills in Central Oregon.
Thought until I decide what direction I'm going. I will share a bit what is going on then a picture of an adventure. I do love taking photos and sharing Gods beauty. This was taken in early Fall when the weather still felt like Summer. It was a full day of small little hikes. I think I will share a photo a day this week of the Painted Hills.

Hello Bloggie World

Hello bloggie world! 
It has been awhile since I have posted anything. This past nine months of my life have been a roller coaster. I have been wanting to post and get back to blogging. I have missed you and the creativity of this platform where I have shared my changing life as well as photos of adventures taken and creative writing. Blog hops where I have meet amazing friends and learned from each one of you. I am ready to get back to have some fun and sharing my life adventures and journey along with my creativity art form of photos and writing. Thank you each one who have remained around waiting for me to come back. Look forward to getting re~acquainted and meeting new friends as well. I know some of you are friends of mine of FB and have kept up with my coming and goings. It has been an adventure. And I truly wouldn't have been able to keep up with the blog with all of my travels this past nine months either. Grandchildren growing and embarking upon their adult lives; as well as many changes taking place in those I love as well as mine. I seem to do better in the Winter with my blog as I do tend to hibernate and not adventure out as much. But always have lots to share and learn. 

One of the many adventures I was on this past nine months. Wanted to share some of the beauty that is in my back yard that I go and explore and enjoy throughout the year. This is the Painted Hill's in Central Oregon early Fall. What a wonderful day and adventure we had this day. Never a dull moment when you go out into God's creation and enjoy the treasures and beauty He has blessed us with.

My Daughters

Gifts sent from heaven

One with a gentle love

With compassion, forgiveness and love that 

Gently whispers in tender mercies

Of the rich love she holds

Inside her heart

Each one she treasures deeply

Held close in God’s love

In pray for all 

Another that loudly speaks

Truth as she sees it

With her heart wide open

Laughter and tears revealed

Never silent in her love 

Her heart she wears on her shoulder

For her love is there open wide for all

Walls built waiting to be tumbled

In the perfect love

That will hold her heart forever

Yet another strong in statue

Who is the glue 

The quiet love

Strong and tough

Yet gentle and caring

With a heart ready to run to your aid

A love that stands firm 

Holds onto truth

Who doesn’t waiver in her believe

A love so strong 

Each one a represent of the Fathers love

A gift sent from heaven above

To treasure and hold 

A life filled with beauty and grace

Each one a beauty to behold

My daughters

My loves

Dandelion Love

A child's first flower of love. 
The promise of wishes to come. 
A smile of love given from the heart. 
Not a weed.....
But a million miracles 
Of hope and love found in one dandelion 
In the eyes of a childs heart.

Three Word Wednesday~

Giddy, adjective: having a sensation of whirling and a tendency to fall or stagger; dizzy, disorienting and alarming, but exciting; excitable and frivolous; verb: make (someone) feel excited to the point of disorientation.

Lewd, adjective: crude and offensive in a sexual way.

Needless, adjective: (of something bad) unnecessary; avoidable.

With giddy eyes 
Full of hope and desire
Longing for one more touch
It was a needless thought
With the one she thought 
Whom held her heart
One lewd act 
Her world came crashing down
Needless harm done to all
By this lewd act
Caused by one
Entangled with another
Now a triangle
Her giddy eyes
Now lost in tears
Searching and wondering
If her world 
Would ever be right 
With hope in heart
Love could only
Conquer this broken heart

Three Word Wednesday

Docile, adjective: ready to accept control or instruction; submissive.

Inflict, verb [with object]: cause (something unpleasant or painful) to be suffered by someone or something; (inflict something on) impose something unwelcome on.

Whimper, verb [no object]: (of a person or animal) make a series of low, feeble sounds expressive of fear, pain, or discontent; [with direct speech] say something in a low, feeble voice expressive of fear or pain; noun: a low, feeble sound expressive of fear or pain; (a whimper) a feeble or anticlimactic tone or ending.

Whimpers could be heard
From the darkness in the room
Docile from each blow
That had been inflicted from the night before
A wounded bird crippled from the hatred
Each word inflicted 
Meant to cause more pain then the last
With each blow inflicted
The more docile she became
Each pray whimpered
Brought only more tears
The hopes of the Saviors love
From the pain that was ministered 
With the intent to destroy
The Lords love lifted her up
With whispers of love
Her prayers answered
In the whimpers of a docile broken soul

~ Beth~

Lent Letters to God ~ Day 8~9

Mark 5:28
For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

Wednesday was great work day for me. I was super blessed by my clients and a few added extras. Even a gentleman came to get his hair cut. He so liked it he brought his bride of 72 years down to meet me. I was so blessed to see the love. I got some errands done and was feeling really blessed. Stopped to see hubby at work and things went a little south. Or maybe that was a whole lots south. And continued to spiral down hill from that point on. If only I would have said touch me Lord. But...I didn't. The things you learn in life along the journey. Thankful God loves me where ever I am.

Dear Lord thank you for always loving me right where I am. That all I have to say is touch me and I will be made whole. I love that we just have to call out your Sons name and you hear us. Thank you Lord even in our despair you watch over us and make us whole when we stop and call upon your name. Thank you Lord for even in our shortness you already made provision for us. Lord I thank you and give you the honor and the glory for all that you are doing and working out in my life in Jesus name Amen

Mark 11:24
“Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Today was getting laundry finished up. Paying bills and making business calls. Some which aren't always easy to make. Sitting before the Lord seeking His face and forgiveness in prayers. Asking for direction. Praying for multiple needs. Prayer is humbling! Whether your lifting others up which is extremely humbling and asking God for direction in life. It is always wonderful to watch Him work in our behalf as we believe to receive. Then when it comes to pass it is even more humbling to know that it was by his hand and love for us in His perfect timing that all will work out together for His glory in heaven.

Dear Lord as I seek your face and ask you to direct my path and shine your light upon the darkness and broken pieces of my heart I thank you that you are already mending them and healing them in Jesus name. I thank you that your word is a light unto me and a road map for my life as I seek you and your kingdom and righteousness. I thank you Lord as I come to you in pray that you are already answering my prayers and bringing them to pass. I thank you Lord that you see our needs and you have already made provision before we have even asked. I thank you Lord that in my weakness I am made strong in you. I thank you that you watch over me and hear my hearts cry. I thank you that I do believe and I do receive in Jesus name Amen

Sometimes it is very hard to pray. Do you have difficult in prayers in the storms of life or any other times?
