Nothing Gold Can Stay By Robert Frost

*POEM BY ROBERT FROST*

NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY

Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

POEM: Creation Sings


CREATION SINGS

Written By Linda A. Knowles


Valentine 5

*

Flowers of splendid blossom rise,

Hills rolling majestic;

Horizons glow with palettes of rose and hues of yellow,

Rippling across the sky with glints of silver glistening.

*

Lush green pastures covered with droplets of morning dew;

Waters cascading from their falls.

*

All the wonder of creation displays a marvelous array of beauty,

Handcrafted, so intricately made,

From what once was chaos brought to a glorious order.

*

Golden rays of the sun lapping across oceans, brooks, streams, and rivers;

And eagles soaring above mountain heights and furrowed brows,

As the hind makes her way through the treacherous mountain paths,

And the lowest of valleys.

*

How majestic is Your Name, O Lord!

How majestic is Your Name!

Your creation continually sings of Your magnificence,

Praising Your splendor and majesty,

Giving the honor due Your Name;

And I, My Lord & King, can only do the same.

The Moments of Solitude

Quietness 5 - Rachel Naomi Remen
Quote By Rachel Naomi Remen

Those moments I hold so close to my heart, those moments with the God I believe in…  pen, paper, bible…  quiets my soul like nothing else- a place of solitude and simple meditation.  In those moments of talking with God, my mind finds itself clearing, the dross of my life being taken out.  In those moments, His mercy and grace covers me and extends forgiveness and healing, His Word speaking life in only the way His Word can.

“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” -Psalm 27:4

Laughter Is A Definite Must

Mark Twain 2

Laughter is a good thing.  Laugh when you can.  Laugh at yourself.  You have to have a sense of humor in this life.  Life is far too short to be taken so seriously.  Yes, serious things happen in life;  that’s why you should laugh.

Take A Chance

Fear 1

 

The only thing that keeps you from moving forward is you.

Get out of your own way, and take a chance.

While there are many opportunities that will cross your path in your lifetime, opportunities do pass.  Don’t let opportunities pass by you because you’re scared of trying or because you’re scared of failing.  Take hold of them.  You’ll never know what you’re capable of until you take the first step.  By taking a chance, you won’t have regrets afterwards.
