A Thought for Today

by Connie Jarka

The chickadee
 hangs under the eves
finds treasure we don’t see;
He pecks and then he flies away,
I watch him and wonder what it could be.

Bugs or seeds
Left over parts of weeds,
Or just moisture dripping down;
Like all of us, no fame no fuss,
In life it might be about what is laying around,
  we too have found.
Though not too sure about the hanging up side down.. 

A Thought for Today

by Connie Jarka

We won’t let
 pain and weakness get us down,
We will just do things
 a little smaller and slower in time;
For what gets done becomes,
 a prize for some,
The rest will resolve itself in time,
 just fine.

be as the chickadee flies
 but right side up ..

A Thought for Today

Out across the field I watch
As snow begins to fall;
I smile to myself
In spite of myself,
A higher power of our believing
Gracious God of our receiving,
Appears in control of it all.
We each one
 one of the masses of time..

A Thought for Today

by Connie Jarka

Dizzy with decision
Weak with worry
Tired from hectic
Handling and hurry;
Proud of ones stamina
Seeking the best
One steps forward into another day
With a whispered prayer and another deep breath.
as we go

A Thought for Today

Take the dance offered
Take the chance given in kind;
For what we receive as blessings from others
We shall give back in double time.

A Thought for Today

By Connie Jarka

To think that along this same step
Many others have traveled before;
Amidst new or re arranged life’s structure,
This ground is still the same old floor.
as we begin again.

A Thought for Today

Welcome New Days in
A New Year and,
    as we do;
So much possibility could lie ahead,
Or just another book as read,
    but here we go 2022.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
GO AND BE!!!
