Flight   1 comment

Flying in a metal bird

Made from man’s imagination

All this effort and ingenuity

To get from here to there

For years of countless generations

This has been a burning quest

Requiring time and talent and much unrest

To first believe then achieve a skyward peopled flight

I propose that this has been disguised and often unidentified

This inner knowing, constant yearning, mental churning

Desire to attain an ultimate and evident closeness to the Heavens

To be nearer to our home

Oh foolish generation

Who knows not God as Love

A commuter-ship to Mars and back still would leave a desert gap

If not navigated by the Spirit

Making heaven home the mark

By pleasing our Creator

With love for one another

Is a worthy goal and an unparalleled destination

The Center of the Edge   2 comments

Here I am standing on the edge of this present moment

At the precipice of here and now

Tempted by tomorrow

Muscles strain to maintain motionless in this place

All might it takes sometimes to merely be at peace and trust

The yet undiscovered treasures of this very moment

Vision clears to realize

All that is worthwhile

I take a breath

Thank God for this

To linger while I smile

Two Hearts   1 comment

Lord, I pray before I dress

To consider all that you have blest

Put my thoughts to test

That in You all reliance rests

 

Consider this

And do not miss

What needs to be your daily quest

 

As far as the east is from the west

Is the extent of My love growing greater never less

On this truth You can surely rest

I have endowed you with my very breath

Given you a heart that beats

Ability with hands and feet

Knowledge of me when I speak

 

Welcome me as you would the morning sun

Trusting that the best is yet to come

Upon this path is born a new day bright

Where in your heart there glows a light

You call it love, I call it might

From which comes all that is good in life

 

Make this your engine’s driving force

Our hearts united on this daily course

A Good Day   1 comment

It has been a long, good day

Filled with work and little play

As most know play to be

But for me today has been

A day of productivity

Mixed with fun because of work I love

And the added satisfaction of Petunia near at hand

All day long I looked forward to this moment here and now

To sit, relax, and ponder

Letting thoughts listlessly wander

To put aside responsibility

But I pray dear God, no matter what

To include You in my busy-ness, in listlessness, in thought, and word, and deed

And keep you closer still, as close as breath could be

How Much Time Do You Have for Me   3 comments

I can wait

For I am eternity

Waiting for your desire

To spend all of it with Me

Patience is a gift

And I cannot give to you

What is not already all of Me

Open your heart

And your eyes will see

A glimpse of all I have in store for thee

Be prepared to receive My love

In measure so immeasurable

It must overflow to burst upon a hungry, wanting, waiting world

As my messenger you receive

The gift of being my ambassador

You may not see your reward today but do not be forlorn

For hope is ministered through my angels’ hands to feed your soul, to keep you strong

Remember I am faithful

And I am always with you

Waiting, wanting, loving you

Curtain Call   8 comments

Oh Lord I pray to hear your voice when you call

Especially in times when I cannot see you at all

Like a mariner dependent on bearings and instruments

Seeking port on a far and distant shore

Cause my heart to rise above the depths of unknown seas

And in that fleeting moment bask in the brilliance of Your majesty
