Today's somewhat tardy poem muddled its way through
a myriad of chores, errands and such...
(such as just now, chasing washed winter coats that blew off the line
in this wildly windy, dusty, hot afternoon!
We really need rain!
An early morning
grocery-greenhouse run left me still looking for a few things
I was unable to get on round one...
Greek salad fixings and veggies for quickie-lunches-to-go
...midst putting supper in the crockpot
...midst phone calls
trying to find a greenhouse not sold out of stevia!
I found one 😊
The coral dahlia below winked at me in one greenhouse (easing the disappointment)
while I was told regretfully, they were sold out of stevia.
May is always a busy month but may we never lose focus on what truly matters
midst the mayhem...
Take time to take pleasure in its quick offerings, like lilacs
and Solomon's seal...
May we make our May day's count for more than numbers ticked off
on a calendar!
May we seek to count our blessings rather than complain or stare
At life’s holes that gape with questions that shape meekness into prayer
May we not miss The Big Picture, intent on what seems amiss
May we learn to trust the Teacher, knowing life is more than This
May we do what we are able through He who helps and equips
And keeps our footing stable in a hand that never slips
May we vow to make now matter as if God was plain to see
May we try to serve our Master with love and humility
May we sense amidst the muddle of struggle and suffering
Someone greater than the trouble that this world is sure to bring
May we bear each other’s burden rather than dodge Duty’s Call
May we learn to truly love the One who loves us above all

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of God.
