FLIRTING WONDERS

Standard

Here is one of the poems from my “being-published” Journal Book. I am told that it will be out by Fall on Amazon and in bookstores for the Christmas shopping season ~ a great stocking stuffer!

I am a poet who writes from (metaphorically) the hillsides of King David. Most of my poetry rhymes ~ probably the musician in me that needs the even tempo of the poem’s rhythm. Nonetheless, it is my worship from the heart, so I hope that it gives you a glimpse of who I am underneath the cowboy hat and lipstick! I am a lover of the Lover of my soul, Jesus!

I would cherish your honest comments. Oh, yes, I am writing under my maiden name! Here’s a sample taste…

FLIRTING WONDERS by Rebecca Lamarche (Voigt)

Your Holy Spirit, Lord, is like the rain, refreshing deserts,
Like April dew on dampened blades of grass;
You’re like the stars that flicker in the clear skies of August
So the heavens light fond memories of those passed.

With faith steadfast in believing there are miracles to come,
You enfold my yearning heart like hand in glove,
Much like snowfall, pure and silent, when it blankets winters meadow ~
Is the mystery of Your abiding love.

Your every thought is on me every hour, every moment,
How I need the peace that’s only found in You!
So you paint the canvas of my daily life with flirting wonders
So in pleasure You might give me strength anew.

Averi & the choco chip cookies

I have posted my granddaughter and her view of life for us all to be reminded of just how many sweet choices we have every day!  Leave the dishes in the sink for the afternoon and enjoy the chocolate chip cookies that are right under your nose.

I am the cookie lady.  I love nothing more than surprising a neighbor, the trash man, the checker at HEB, the front office…with freshly home-baked cookies.  Not the pre-made from the store batter, either, but the recipe that worked for Grandma when we took time to do for others.  Real butter, lots of chocolate chips, and love sweeter than the brown sugar to let my “peeps” know how much they bless my days.  I keep fresh cookie dough in the fridge at all times.  That way I am always only 8-10 minutes at 350* away from delighting someone, which delights me even more!

It is major self-discipline to keep a spoonful from escaping the fridge and melting onto my taste buds during the day!  I love cookie dough ~ more than the cookies themselves, perhaps!

What about you?  What is your favorite kind of cookie?  Do you like the dough on a spoon or the cookie fresh from the oven?
