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


When the Wind and Waters Rage   2 comments

No matter what the inner voices have said

Whether damning words of fault and dread

The truth of the precious unreplaceableness of you and me

Is softly, sweetly, swiftly, in a time of need 

Spoken in a whisper

Our Creator’s emissary

A Spirit filled tsunami 

Guardian angel, Holy Spirit, Word of God, Christ on High

Have my heart drown out the lies 

With Your all consuming powerful ever present love 

How beautiful, astounding, more wonderfully amazing could it be 

That loving Spirit living inside of you and me

Dispelling all we fear

The promise of life to come

The battle won

If only I could see beyond what is imagined

Heaven in its glorious splendor for all eternity 

How minuscule, how incidental all else becomes

When You, oh God, and we are One

Changes for the Better   Leave a comment

It won’t be long before again the seasons change

From golds and reds and faint and fading greens

I pray as well with faith and hope for change

That is evident, and always ever better




Sticking Close   Leave a comment

Oh God, why do I stray

When I know You always know the way

Leading to peace, and joy, and life

The source of strength for challenges unknown

The days of infancy are frail and vulnerable

And cannot be made alone

Now grown am I and need You still

And desire You even more

Knowing that without You near

I am still so frail and vulnerable



Wings of Prayer   Leave a comment

When I let go will you be there

When I lean in far enough to fall

Will you be there to lift me when I call

You who made us all, tethered to the earth


Except for prayers that no know bounds

And never go unheard

On wings of Angels, our plea filled words

Are carried and known before they are even uttered





While The Day Still has Light   Leave a comment

May the time I spend in wondering be of how great, oh God, You are

And not in endless worry, or in want of what does not feed the soul

But instead I pray to draw near to You in love, and love more deeply still

To practice love of self and others

And to positively believe

That all together, all will be, for the good of a grander plan




With More than Words can Adequately Express to be Thankful For   Leave a comment

This image of Provincetown Harbor is one of my favorites. Taken just after sunrise on a not too long ago, jeweled September morning — Apropos for this Thanksgiving Day; the place where the Pilgrims first landed. Provincetown has been an inspiration to me and countless others all those years since the Mayflower made its way to its shore. There is an engraved plaque in the woodland near Pilgrim Heights that stands next to a babbling brook to mark the spot where the first settlers at last, finally found fresh drinking water. The plaque reads “…. And they were heartily glad” — The scene I picture is these ragged travel worn settlers on their knees refreshed and renewed by  their life-giving drink and saying in their heartily glad words…Thank you God! 😉

My prayer of thanks for this day:

 Lord You refresh my faith

And make me new, day by day

Each day different than the next

Thank you that You are here to lean upon

A place of endless rest

Oh why do I waver so

And worry endlessly

When you, at the right time, answer my prayers constantly

Refashioning my doubt and fears

To become tools to help another

I see this all so clear in hindsight

So I thank you God for your grace

You who are here and now, and promise life forever

You whose hand has formed me

First from earth’s soil, to be born in body and soul

Your miracles and love are never ending

And You remain a constant source of strength

Like rushing mountain water falling

You soothe my soul in darkened days of wavering faith

Preparing me to be born yet again like a new sun rising

Feeding me with hope anew
