God Thank you for the Further Proof of Your Existence   Leave a comment

For every living creature I have loved still is loved

Growing greater with every remembrance

May it be with Your love in me to deeply love all near to me

I pray to hold one another in the highest esteem

And when challenged by self-righteous judgment to first look in the mirror

For the prison bars of grievances to have no power

Over love that can never be hidden from your eyes

I claim this day to walk with You

To take time to embrace the beauty that can always be found when sought

For You who lives in each of us is always near

Exposing truth, expressing love, in both the obvious and sometimes mysterious

For your ways may be impervious to knowing

But we know without a doubt when You’ve been here

New Day   3 comments

God help us with our addiction to news

And also those who’d rather snooze denying what’s apparent

Finding joy and peace and happiness

Is truly a treasure hunt

Worth the seeking and the finding

For You exist even amidst the rubble

Of what we call our troubles

There You are and have always been

Not seeking You is the only sin

For once we do discover You

Doubt and fears become dismissed

Replaced by faith to open hearts that reveal Your Majesty

God’s Timing   1 comment

Seeking to spend time with You with pen in hand

To connect, to listen, with hope to be inspired

The phone interrupts our discourse

Or so I thought

Hesitation gave way as I answered

To find that this untimely interruption

Was Your calling that I was longing

For the greatest gift of good purpose

Is our usefulness to another

Giving time of self bears the riches of a crown of jewels

My soul is lifted and refreshed by the humble response of the caller who is blest

And I imagine angel scribes in heaven

Making note of our connectedness and kindliness

As they too marvel at the wonder of Your timing

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
