Like Flowers in the Spring

 

Through the winter bulbs are hiding

in the shelter of the ground,

waiting until spring

for their beauty to be found.

The tulips and the daffodils,

with the hope they contain,

are filled with a promise

that their beauty will remain.

Although they seem quite lifeless

while their beauty cannot show,

when spring returns they slowly

start to rise, bloom and grow.

We too can have the promise

of springtime in each life,

when we can grow and blossom

after facing pain and strife.

Although we often suffer,

God will lovingly fulfill

His promise to creation

that He is faithful still.

As we hold onto the hope

that, like the flowers in spring,

we will burst forth from our sorrows

with a joyful song to sing.

Evidence of Grace

The grace of God offers evidence
of His eternal love,
raining down upon us
like showers from above.

The beauty found in nature
helps us to be aware
of God's endless grace
and infinite, loving care.

The golden, rosy glow
of the early morning sky,
chasing away the darkness
of the night that's just gone by,
gives witness to the coming
of the Light of creation,
and by God's holy grace,
the source of our salvation.

The sound of children's voices,
as they laugh and when they play,
reminds me we're God's children
and loved in a special way.
When we feel overwhelmed
by life and everything,
God's grace can lift and give us
a new song to sing.

Love is the Reason

How can we be certain,
to know for sure it's true
that Jesus came to save us
and died for me and you?
Did he really rise again,
can we believe the story,
and does he still live
with God in endless glory?

The answers are around us
if we will look and see,
in the beauty of nature,
of flower, plant and tree.
The leaves in autumn die
and fall to the sod
but will bud once again
on limbs lifting up to God.

The plant that once blossomed,
that seemed to die away,
will in splendor bloom anew
on a bright spring day.
Life comes to an end,
but there's always much more,
new life, fresh beginnings,
as we've often seen before.

The cycle of life
and changing of the season
makes resurrection clear,
shows plainly the reason.
Yes, Jesus came in love,
and even though he died,
He rose to life again
and is present by our side.

Poems about BEAUTY, JOY, PEACE, SEASONS, CHRISTMAS

A Singing Heart

Joy in the morning, peace through the day
and calm when the night is near;
Though troubles abound and pain comes around,
there's really no need to fear.
God works for the good of all those who love him,
his promise is ever true.
We cannot be separated from his love
regardless of what we might do.

Hi mercy surrounds us, his beauty astounds us,
how wonderful are his ways!
His guidance, direction, great love and protection
are with us all of our days.
All nature rejoices with uplifted voices,
proclaiming God's power and might,
To God, the Creator, our Shield and Defender,
the source of all goodness and light.

The whole of creation, with great jubilation,
to the Good Shepherd bring
Psalms of thanksgiving and sweet adoration
offered before their King.
Make music before him with praise, and worship
the one who has set us apart.
Proclaim his great name, evermore the same,
filled with love and a singing heart.

Abundant Comfort and Grace is a refreshing book of poetry that will take the reader on a journey of God's grace and comfort. Poetry that will ease the mind and soothe the soul. Each and every poem will deal with some aspect of life that the reader has already gone through or will encounter in their life, fear, patience, questions and hope. Each piece of this beautiful poetry is accompanied with an outstanding piece of photography that compliments the poem. This is an excellent book to add to your shelf and when you get discouraged just take it off the shelf and read again the beautiful words the author has written from her own heart to wrap around yours. Recommended for everyone.

Abiding Hope and Love is a book full of poetry that you will treasure for a lifetime. Author Connie Arnold writes with faith, just as the Prophet Paul did in The Book of Romans. Her faith and love stands out in truth, and these poems will live on forever in the inkful faith of Christ.  I give this book 5 stars, it is well written; within each word I feel the spirit of God pouring out to me. These poems will give you a fresh look on life and it will renew your soul in such a profound way. This book is magnificent; Kudos to Connie Arnold for writing a timeless masterpiece.

Beautiful Moments of Joy and Peace, by Connie Arnold has to be some of the most inspiring, encouraging and uplifting poetry that I have ever read.  There is a God given message in each of Connie Arnold's poems, and there is music in poetry as well as beauty and Connie Arnold has so elegantly shared that music and beauty with her readers.  Life is hard and has lots of pain, sadness and frustrations, but Beautiful Moments of Joy and Peace, will bring you back to the true source of joy and peace, which is our Heavenly Father.  Christian based, Godly poetry is hard to find and that is what sets this book above the rest.  You will want a copy of Beautiful Moment of Joy and Peace, for your personal library as you will find yourself reading this book time and time again, be refreshed and finding you way to the beauty that God has created.

  Animal Sound Mix-up, $9.95

Order from Guardian Angel Publishing - book, e-book or CD, or Amazon



Things would certainly be a little weird if they became mixed up somehow! That's the type of fun you can expect in Animal Sound Mix-up by Connie Arnold. 

Venture along in this fun rhyme as you discover what the world would be like if animal sounds got mixed up. You have to admit, it would be quite interesting to hear a roar from a mouse and a squeak from an elephant.

The beautiful illustrations by Kit Grady are sure to delight that young animal lover in your life, while the book overall is a great resource to teach preschoolers about animal sounds and to encourage a discussion about what makes each of us unique.
