april midnight by arthur symons

Side by side through the streets at midnight,
Roaming together,
Through the tumultuous night of London,
In the miraculous April weather.
Roaming together under the gaslight,
Day’s work over,
How the Spring calls to us, here in the city,
Calls to the heart from the heart of a lover!
Cool to the wind blows, fresh in our faces,
Cleansing, entrancing,
After the heat and the fumes and the footlights,
Where you dance and I watch your dancing.
Good it is to be here together,
Good to be roaming,
Even in London, even at midnight,
Lover-like in a lover’s gloaming.
You the dancer and I the dreamer,
Children together,
Wandering lost in the night of London,
In the miraculous April weather.

 your childhood imagination and dance the night away!

With love,

Sunshine xoxo

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

Dear Divine Father,

Your beauty surrounds us in the rainfall

as one quietly observes the new growth of your spring

we watch the garden of our hearts grow as you shower our lives with Divine thoughts.

Help us to remember to offer our daily tasks to You,

the One who gives us our breath —

May this song be our way of expressing how precious your Divine love is to our soul

We give You thanksgiving and our praise. Amen.

Sunday Post: Designer Image

Design your image to reflect the early morning dew so clean and new

an image  light and easy like the cool evening breeze as it blows through your hair

pleasant and delightful as the first winter snow

quiet and reflective as a spring renewal

English: Morning dew on a flower

fun, loving and adventurous as a summer vacation

and peaceful and content as an autumn thanksgiving meal 

I wonder, how clever this Designer is to weave His image in the wonder of His natural world?
