Surrender   2 comments

I asked God where have You been
That I cannot see and cannot hear

In surrender the answer came to me

Asking with Your mind
Is not how our thoughts align

Your heart holds the key
To open communication between you and Me

Do not squander free will for worldly ends
For this world and its corruption will surely end

Seek with your whole heart what cannot die

Love is the beginning 
Love has no end

Crossing Paths   2 comments

I look for crosses everywhere

Especially when doubtful or in despair

But how amazed am I

When crosses cross my path

Unknown to me instead

We are the River   Leave a comment

Lord, oh God, Creator

Most Mighty, Holy One, Sacred and Supreme

When in lowly valley I fall sullen

You appear mysteriously so sudden

You gratefully redirect

My wanderings and my schemes

And permeate my dreams

The earth, and all of us, Your creation

Symbolic of who You are

Rivers flow on endlessly

Quenching the thirst of earth and all dependent on it

The waters unseen work churns beneath the surface

Hiding deep within its banks and bottom

Precious gems and many treasures

Living waters return to You in greater measure 

By sweeping up each soul in its holy water

We, who You made most magnificent

We, who You trusted with Your creation

Return to You, most Holy One, who we call our Maker 

And better yet, to love you more, as our Mother and our Father

Reliving a Kodak Moment   Leave a comment

George Eastman’s Desk —

His former home is now a museum in Rochester, NY.  His vision was to put a camera into the hands of the masses … Truly a believer who manifested his dream.   This massive accomplishment inspires me, and I hope you as well, to think big, take calculated risks, dream dreams, and live to accomplish all that you hope that God would hold dear. 

Images reveal truths

Some wanted, some not

One picture portrays

What often words cannot 

From cave walls to canvas

From film to pixels

Quickened by heart 

Perceived by the eye

Freezing life’s moments

One click at a time

Struck by a sunset

Or a newborn child

Photography allows us to be

21st Century recorders 

Of all that we see 

Revealers of truth

Explorers of nature

Capturing love

Sanctuary   Leave a comment

Faith is believing in what I cannot see
With patience waiting in Spirit’s company
I put my trust in Thee
