Here and Now   Leave a comment

An unplanned life is like leaving home and not knowing which way to turn

 

Without the willingness to learn how could we ever grow or change

 

Or even dare to consider that life could be an exciting adventure

 

No matter what the cost all could be lost without the openness to receive all the love and unexpected gifts that God’s gifts of nature always offer

 

Turning what many see as mundane to a supernatural experience

 

Open my eyes oh Lord and pour in your love and enlightenment

 

I implore you to seek my heart to explore

 

Find me here and take me where

 

Only Your guiding hand can lead

 

To prosper and not cause harm

 

Fill each cell with brimming faith

 

If only fear and doubt is my enemy

 

And you have overcome all adversity

 

Then take this life You have freely given

 

That I may return it to You with love and with commitment

 

With all my fears and doubts that are only momentary

 

Your promises are true and heaven is not a dream in some unexpected tomorrow

 

But with You, heaven is here and now

For the Love of All   1 comment

How could I not believe the nearness of you God

For all that is and was, you have created

And you can see through all creation’s eyes

Today I heard a sermon preached

On the Good Samaritan

Realizing how I am surrounded by your loved ones

And grateful, ever grateful for the love of family

Surrendered in this process

To receive the goodness bestowed

And still to remember that all is a give and take

Love cannot be denied

And must, in this sometimes overwhelming state

Be expressed to love one another

For this is another way of also loving you

Purpose   2 comments

I wake up each day and remind myself to say “thank you”

Thank you to God, to Life, to Love

For all the reasons worth living for

For the gifts indwelling

Some mined and some yet to find

Discovery is an ever-evolving process

Of who we are or what we may name as meant to be

What, Oh God, do you have in mind for me

Your gifts are many

Your love is born in each and every one of yours

But first I find I must trust

To be vulnerable enough to let go of my will

And invite you into my heart each day

At first awakening with ‘Thank you’

That opens the door of my heart

To hear your reply

My child so sweet and dear and forever mine

Please know how much I love you

And how much I desire to be loved and trusted by you
