God, I pray, please give to me

Eyes that see Your goodness

Beyond the darkness looming bright

Your love, true hope, and light

The Gift of Patience   Leave a comment

Patience is an artist, whose only brush, is time

She colors the day with faith

And with trust she fills each line


How often do we struggle 

Forcing situations, and filling empty holes

Instead of withholding and waiting

For patience to complete

What might be her greatest masterpiece


Yet while still working at her craft

With her faithful standing by  

She is forever able, and so eager to refresh us

With the gift of Spirit’s fruit filled peace

Being Made Whole   Leave a comment

I need connection Lord

Not with fancy words or rhyming wit

But heart to heart, with you as One

In the Center of my life


Streaming down Your love for all

I love You God – You love me Too

Why do I always think

There is something I must do


Help me to find rest in Your bosom soon

For when I sit outside this busy room

With so much there seems to do

Let me not forget that it’s You who goes wherever I go too


Guiding me, enlightening

Preparing the path that I must walk

Willingly I walk with You

Always by my side


I love You Lord – You made me whole

Once so fragmented was my soul

Put back together piece by piece

By every lesson learned


Problems are not something from which to run

But rather to embrace

Life is not a race

Your refining never ends


I pray that I might shed self-will and shine

Bright as Your morning sun

Acceptable in your sight

And be with you as One

~Let Patience Have Her Perfect Work~

First new year work day

Fills with snow

Spirit strains to move

From Slow To Go
