Compassion and Mercy

The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. 

He will not constantly accuse us,nor remain angry forever. 

He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. 

For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. 

He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. 

The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. 

-- Psalm 103:8-13

Time to read, relax, refresh.
A stack of new books waiting to be cracked open and savored.
Music drifts out of earbuds snug.
Ponder, consider, breathe.

Walks in the park with my sister-friend.
Drawings, novels, earrings, cookies, Lego flowers, clay figures.
Creative juices flowing all around.
Glimpses of the future shining through the fog.

Sandy toes, sunburn on my nose.
Flip flops, beach towels, soggy suits.
Bees buzzing in the fence hugging blossoms.
Sun bringing life and light. 

Summertime and the livin' is easy.
