Moving Day


Moving Day

By Susie Teramura


I have decided

To move


With You.


I am packing up

My stuff,

Memories and

Trinkets and



All the things

I own

And I am

Taking them

To Your home.


Because I see now

Your place is

The safest place.


So I am,

Moving in

All of me,

Settling into

Spaces there.


I am making You

My home and

My resting place.


You are

Warm and kind

And full of grace.


You serve up

The finest tea,

And love to

Sit and chat

With me,


And when I am

With You

There is no


No rush,

No hurry,

No next,


To do.


You invite me

Sit long

And take

Off my shoes.


We talk and

Laugh and

Watch the fire glow.


The best part is

I never have

To go.


You will never imply

My leaving or

Shoo me out

The door,


You always

Invite me

To stay

For just a little

bit more,


More of

Your peace,

And presence,

And love,


More of your gifts


From above,


More kindness,


And overflowing joy,


So instead of

Just visiting today

I am moving in

And going to stay,


For near You

Is a place,

Saved just

For me,


A place where

I can rest and

Finally be free,



Are in charge

And taking care

Of me.


          Psalm 73:28 (ESV)

But for me it is good to be near God;

I have made the Lord God my refuge,

that I may tell of all your works.


           Psalm 73:28(MSG)

But I’m in the very presence of God—

oh, how refreshing it is!

I’ve made Lord God my home.

God, I’m telling the world what you do!



   Psalm 65:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)

 Blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near

To dwell in Your courts.

We will be filled with the goodness of Your house,

Your holy temple.












Flower Prints


This week I had some fun etching images into styrofoam vegetable trays from the grocery store and making prints with them. I used a pencil and pushed my design into the tray. I then put a light coat of paint over it and pressed the print face down on a piece of paper. The last step was the most fun; peeling off the tray to see the design! 🙂
