Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Magpie Tale #50 entitled Just Look Up

Lord,
I feel as though I've lost
 my first love.
I've grown cold
and indifferent
to Your voice.

My soul is lost in this lonely place,
a  frozen wilderness-
and I don't know where to turn.

Look up, daughter. Just look up.

Welcome to Magpie! Lovely thoughts.

(For some reason you linked to a post from October of last year, but no worries, I corrected it!)

Thanks Tess! I noticed the crazy link too; but had no idea how to fix it. I appreciate that you were able to.

I liked the last line especially...

It's easy to feel lost, that's for sure. Last line is perfect ending- love your poem, Debora!
