Productive Waiting   2 comments

 

While I am waiting I will stay as busy as can be

I’ll stay and wait

Or stand and wait

Or walk then run then sit again

And sleep and eat between

Maybe write a book

Or see a picture I can snap

I’ll take a course

Learn something new

But all the while be waiting

I’ll not forget to pray

And remember to acknowledge

That while I wait I’m not alone

And although I cannot live tomorrow

To hold it in my memory

For tomorrow lives somehow within

Of the promise of what’s to come

While I live this day with gratitude busily awaiting

The Veil is Torn   Leave a comment

Come to know and to expect the Spirit working in quiet wondrous ways

For angels are always in your presence

Be alert and compassionate seeking how to please

You are precious and valued beyond your imagining and in My constant

 loving sight

There is no need to be guarded with Me

For what you try to conceal will only try to steal your soul

My love cannot be borrowed or purchased

It is a free will offering

To be received and returned willingly

By faith you are healed

By grace you live

By mercy you are forgiven

And the scars of your history are healed

By the forgiveness you allow

Broken hearts give sight to the sufferer

For the cost of true compassion is dear

See Me … for I am always here

In seabirds, sunsets, white capped waves

And in the mirror of your self examination

An Open Invitation   Leave a comment

Leave your calendar open daily with room aplenty for God to enter in

To find at day’s end  your slumber laced with  peace filled recollections of the Spirit’s encounters that are undoubtedly uniquely yours

Starting Young   Leave a comment

Sometimes it’s a vision … perhaps just a glimpse

Or having our senses incited by a whiff

Instilling what our future holds

Depends so much upon the world that we let in

Steeped in choices percolating new ideas

Stirs us deeply in our souls

To share with one another all the good that we behold

Things are Looking Up   Leave a comment

You can float — And you can fly

And even walk if the ground is dry

Your very presence offers me

Reminders of endless possibilities

There is Only One   2 comments

The colors in the sky are too many to name and varied beyond belief

We try to memorize or duplicate to rekindle for relief

You leave us with indelible impressions everywhere

Water is Your mirror providing for our pleasure and our needs

You are water, You are light, You are the air we breathe

Without any part of all of You nothing could survive

But mere existence is not Your aim

We are made for Your delight, and to delight in You

To love when days are dark or light

To trust that once and for all

You are for one … and for all

With eyes fixed on Your magnificence

Our hearts burst forth with what becomes uncontainable and clear

That the breath of our lifeblood is in our acts of love and care

And to acknowledge that You are with us at all times and everywhere

Looking Up   Leave a comment

I don’t know what the day will hold

But I know that God will hold me through the day
