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

Growing Closer to God   2 comments

Oh Lord I Pray

That while I feel as though sometimes confined within the bud

I trust in You with all my heart and incline to you my ear

To listen with faithful waiting

Ever ready for when You call

Without sight of what tomorrow holds

I trust that You are near

And thank You for a glimpse of Your presence here

Why We Need God   Leave a comment

Oh God, why do I stray

When You have shown You always know the way

The way that leads to peace, and joy, and life

You who are a constant source of strength for challenges unknown

The days of infancy are frail, and so vulnerable

We cannot survive alone

Now full grown I need You still

And desire You even more

Knowing that without You near

I am still so frail, and so vulnerable

Why We Need You

Roots   Leave a comment

The Root of an All Saints Day

 

Oh, did I succumb to sorrow swallowed by the years

Released by one suggestion

Remembering those now gone

Thank You God for this one great consolation

That where they are, we too, one day will be

Restored, reclaimed, by grace and love, at last, forevermore

Give us This Day our Daily Bread and Keep me Hungry for You, oh God   Leave a comment

Life begins with hunger in a world now separated from its source

A mother gone, a world unknown

Will hunger ever cease

There’s Nothing New Under the Sun   Leave a comment

For God has given us each our gifts

To reform, imitate and recreate

For all there is under the sun has really already been done

Feeling the Love   4 comments

We attended a birthday party today for a dear friend of ours – that overflowed to a tailgate party for Petunia —

Many of our friends knew of Petunia but didn’t know until today her whole story of recovery after being found in an alleyway in Baltimore, severely burned and starved only one year ago this month – One by one people came out from the party to visit her, making this a very happy day for this girl God has given us all to love – #FeelingTheLove
