The Signs of New Beginnings   2 comments

Angels woo me with their murmurings

Assurance that they’re near

Taunting, almost haunting their energy so clear

Like water purified and rushing to carbonate the soul

To inspire one to inquire how to reach the highest spire

While still tethered to the earth

Prayers authored by the heart

Rise above this graven gravity

Informed by the eternal, ignited by God’s love

Let There Be Light   Leave a comment

Black and white gives me a greater sense of the power of light … and the power of light gives me a greater knowledge of the power of God … and the power of Love that is, where ever I choose to find it …

Knowing Where My Home Lies   1 comment

How happiness can be curtailed

By the sudden notion of its temporariness

How families once united must each go their own way

That nothing in this world can stay

In any sort of constant state

Oh grievous heart now heavy sinks

When all at once acknowledging

This is not my home

Do not here relax and think

That this is all there is

Oh God with strings from heaven

Lift my heart to Thee

Where angels sing and love and joy is born anew in each and every moment

Where eyes are fixed on only You

For this is why I know

That to You my heart belongs

And for You, I live a foreigner

On this plain till work is done

With love to give me breath each day to carry on

What it Takes to Keep Ducks in a Row   1 comment

Oh God you have been my go to — in between and during — all of this life’s demands 
And now I find myself discontent while searching emails, browsing Facebook, Instagram, or text
How quickly … how quickly … how quickly I suddenly forget
That the info that I need to look for are the messages from You
The Holy Spirit that guides all that I seek to know and need to follow
The wonder you have bestowed in nature … here and now before me … almost begging to be seen and be acknowledged 
And above all, with gratitude aplenty, be a vessel overflowing faith and love and peace that comes from simply seeking You

Staying Aloft   1 comment

I pray to not let the churning of the world’s endless disturbance

Deter me from the sacred space I share with Thee

Listening for the song of Your Spirit calling

In concert with all Creation

Attention on the promise of Your peace and Your protection

Overcoming darkness in the light of Your reflection

Mining the goodness in each other

Living because of Your unconditional gift of Love

That multiplies with every offering of thanks
