Children scatter on the breeze

    Melody,
    Oh yes, I understand. Been there as children grow up and leave the nest, leaving us feel barren at times, as part of us leaves with them. Sometimes we wait for new life to replace the old, knowing this season too is planned. Other times so happy to embrace the quiet and emptiness so God can fill us with his thoughts and plans. Sometimes, this is the very best place for new songs and poems to fill our nesting place.
    Thanks for sharing your pictures…they often reflect my heart.

      Thanks for sharing this part of your journey with me, Glenda. You so aptly describe the mixed emotions involved. Quiet is a very good thing – and a full house is another! Each in their time…

  2. My elder brother and his wife are going through this soon!!! 🙂

    Ah, yes, a very empty nest. But I have the kitchen to myself, which is fun; mostly!

  5. It’s nice pictures that you take..especially this one is genius! I found you through a like of my post, however you missed my poetry about nature :). Poetry is nice. It brings ease, cause you can’t really stress them. Writing normal under preassure works good for me…but not poems. And the short poems can sometimes have more to say then the long ones.

    I will link my nature poems if you don’t mind. I will start putting up some of my other ones too maybe…thank you for the inspiration!
