The Onus of a (Permanent Ink) Fount

The Best Laid Plan of me and you
can always only guess at the details
Thus, each of us should entrust Today into
The Divine Hand that leads with love that never fails

Below a few framed prints of yesterday...
Thanks to a huge fresh basil plant from our local grocery store
pizza was on the menu for yesterday's lunch!

Garden-fresh onions added some extra delish as well! (on one sideπŸ˜…)

...and later, peanut butter cookies!

This morning as I peer into its ethereal frame I see hopes of
a happy wedding day for my oldest sister's only daughter

Each day lowers a frame to fill
The picture it will hold
Is always an Original
Spilled as moments unfold

From Goodness and Mercy, with love
Dawn’s fresh frame challenges
As we ponder time's palette of
Heartache and happiness

Colors of choice and circumstance
Mingle upon the tray
Where soon the frame that morning grants
Nightfall will draw way

The handiwork of Day Gone By
Sets in permanent ink
Before its paint is barely dry
Dusk claims More Than We Think

How swift the gifted frame bears Fact
As prayer, care, work and play
Fills galleries of Looking Back
That steal our breath away

Because what seems so commonplace
As day to day runs rife
Collects frames of grace-upon-grace
Into One Little Life

…where Far More than We Think becomes
The Onus of a Fount
That flows into The Sacred Sums

This morning as we peer into
A brand-new, empty frame
Pray, that at dusk the art we view
Honors the Giver’s Name

For oh, how very terrible
Would be a lifetime spent
Missing The Very Miracle
For which each frame was lent

Let's pray for the glorious miracle of love (like Jesus exemplified)
to fill today's frame with a masterpiece!
1 John 3:16-18
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
 And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 
17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need 
but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 
18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech 
but with actions and in truth.
