Reflections ~ Anchored Secure
Is your boat safely harbored,
Readied for each stormy gale?
Are you anchored securely,
Lest there come some rough travail?
Have you found quiet refuge,
Unconcerned by wind or wave?
Are you tethered completely;
Your hope, confident and brave?
Fear, need not loose your moorings,
Or trials your peace assail.
For within the fiercest gust,
There is a Way to prevail.
Why guess how you’ll navigate;
On your own think what to do?
There’s an Anchor for the soul,
Who will never forsake you.
Let go of reservations,
Fix your trust on God above.
Set your compass on His truth;
Your reflections on His love.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”

Thanks very much. I appreciate your feedback! Blessings on your day.
What a beautiful image! So warm and tranquil. Your poetry is beautiful, too! So glad He is a sure anchor and shelter in the storm. 🙂
Me, too, Rene. Couldn’t make it without Him. Thanks much!
Beautiful – your poem and the photograph! Meant to comment the other day on the pics of the Bradford Pear trees – they were all breathtaking as was your post. We have Sarah’s girls with us this week, so my time is not my own. 🙂 See you Friday.
Thanks Teri. I am still having to avoid computers as much as possible. Typing posts from my phone, then only brief times if uploading and sorting photos. I have tons of stuff I would like to share, but it is what it is. See ya tomorrow.
Beautiful picture, congratulations!
Thanks very much!

Thank you for being you and I hope even if you do not accept awards you will accept the sentiment expressed as I honor you with one. There is no prize that comes with the award other than my appreciation and being grateful you are part of our world and making a difference by sharing in such a positive way…
I have posted the award and link to it here I hope you will accept it or at least the sentiment behind it! http://artisticlyxpressedthoughts.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/awards-and-shared-gifts/
What an honor Joe. I still am refraining from posting or participating in awards, but I sure do appreciate the kind remarks and the fact that you chose me. Blessings your way, and hope you are not offended.
