POWER CONVERTER   Leave a comment

Hope’s opposite is despair

And when we find ourselves admittedly there

Only Faith and Prayer with Gratitude

Can lead us back to where

The Spirit’s light shines bright  again

Faith is the Substance of Things Hoped For …   Leave a comment

It is wise to question one’s direction

And to be open for suggestions

But never leave home without a destination

For those that wander

Do get lost

And can be a hazard to those whose path they cross

Without a goal we squander opportunity

While standing still to contemplate

Choose to pray or meditate

This is productive waiting

Letting patience do her work

Setting sights with hope

To live fully in the now

Seeking Spirit’s strength to foster faith

Hope renders the potential of what promises to be

An exciting new adventure

Sustaining Peace   Leave a comment

I didn’t read the news today … oh boy
I breathed in peace and exhaled joy
I resisted temptations to be drawn by news alerts that quite often make me sad
Words intended to engage and then enrage

Instead I hoped for the discipline of a better habit
To draw upon more earnestly each morning’s offering of Divine Good News
To not only sustain me for what the day may bring
But to feed souls and give good reason for hearts to sing

I read good news today … oh boy
It wasn’t about what we’re against but what we are for 
Engendering peace … preventing war
