Raindrops of My Heart

My soul weeps like a willow

bending but never breaking,

hanging on to hope.

Roaring loud as thunder,

burdens begin to fall

plethora of tears storm.

Slowly suffocating,

all of me is drowning

in the raindrops of my heart.

Haiku A Day – fight

fight settles, now she’s 
sitting quietly— it’s the
calm before the storm

Oldest and Youngest

This cherished photo is of my son at 2 months old, held by his great-great-grandfather on his 102 birthday. They represented our youngest and oldest family members at the time.

Turn Back Time

Grandpa enjoys sitting outside smoking cigarettes as he fiddles with one thing or another. His sight ain’t what it used to be and he can’t do so much anymore but his little projects keep him busy. Today I think he’s trying to turn back time.

“Izzy Busy Bee”

Sheila C. Morgan, Author

If you have a little one in your life, they may enjoy the children’s book “Izzy Busy Bee,” the short story of a child transformed into a place where she creates adventure, while sharing the story of who creates all life. At night Izzy’s thoughts turn into a dream, where she becomes a helpful leader in the world of bees. While Izzy has a colorful and fun time with friends, she inspires the other children in her dream to also think about how big all creation is and the great significance of a tiny bee.

With “Izzy Busy Bee,” Author Sheila C. Morgan desires to reach children in their early developmental years in hopes they may experience the awareness of God. Her work was inspired by her career and ministry. All of her books were published by Xulon Press and can be purchased from Amazon (link in caption above). While you’re there, check out Sheila’s other two publications, “The Husband” and “Seasons Do Change: A Personal Journey of Hope Through Adversity.” Maybe they will spark your interest too!
