Productive Waiting   2 comments

 

While I am waiting I will stay as busy as can be

I’ll stay and wait

Or stand and wait

Or walk then run then sit again

And sleep and eat between

Maybe write a book

Or see a picture I can snap

I’ll take a course

Learn something new

But all the while be waiting

I’ll not forget to pray

And remember to acknowledge

That while I wait I’m not alone

And although I cannot live tomorrow

To hold it in my memory

For tomorrow lives somehow within

Of the promise of what’s to come

While I live this day with gratitude busily awaiting

The Veil is Torn   Leave a comment

Come to know and to expect the Spirit working in quiet wondrous ways

For angels are always in your presence

Be alert and compassionate seeking how to please

You are precious and valued beyond your imagining and in My constant

 loving sight

There is no need to be guarded with Me

For what you try to conceal will only try to steal your soul

My love cannot be borrowed or purchased

It is a free will offering

To be received and returned willingly

By faith you are healed

By grace you live

By mercy you are forgiven

And the scars of your history are healed

By the forgiveness you allow

Broken hearts give sight to the sufferer

For the cost of true compassion is dear

See Me … for I am always here

In seabirds, sunsets, white capped waves

And in the mirror of your self examination

Nothing Hidden   Leave a comment

There is nothing on this earth or in what we call universe or multiverse

Where You are not

Like smoke and embers rising from the fires of an almighty molten core 

Or the mist that covers the earth each new morning born from the waterfall of Your love

Everywhere and in everything You are

The smoke of your fires seep under the sill of my door

Its threshold useless to prevent You

Sitting here, waiting, knowing You are here

You cover me in a blanket warm

Surround me with Your love

Your Spirit a refreshing mist

Bathes me, washes over me

Caught between what is mortal and immortal

I observe the surrendering of self to Thee

Understanding that free will is necessary

To bow in complete surrender

For all that You require

Is a free will offering

Of my love and my desire

Looking Out for One Another   Leave a comment

Sometimes we see eye to eye

And sometimes we do not

 

But more important is this to know

To always look out for one another

 

For you to be a better you

And for me to be a better me

Choosing How to Have a Happy New Year   Leave a comment

For Christmas I gave myself the gift of deleting all my news apps and turning off notifications. I will choose the time and the source to stay informed … In the meantime, and I pray all the time, I will cling to God’s good news, the message of hope, and the reassurance of God’s Divine Supremacy … and because of that I can gratefully and sincerely claim a Happy New Year ~img_4102

Fertile Ground   Leave a comment

We are flowers quickly fading
Often feeling heavy laden

All I need is to surrender
Knowing that Your love is sure to save me
From a disbelieving world, not knowing You


May Your love forever be

In constant bloom within my heart

A Force of Nature   2 comments

From a pine-covered sanctuary under thunderous rolling rumbling skies I see

The moving waters forceful press against the reeds

Surrendering to the mounting steady breeze

The wildlife has disappeared

Wing-ed ones no more in flight

And earthbound creatures shiver in the shadows of their cover

In the west the skies a luminescent azure blue

Face the drape of a dark gray curtain closing

A butterfly erratically in motion

Life threatened by the coming rain

To it, one drop, a murderous moist-filled boulder

Everything on earth is good

Except when confronted with extremes

The storms … they seem to be

The mirror of our pain, and our affliction

Yet clearing quiet summer skies

Adorned by sun-swept radiant clouds

Pronounce with vibrant vigor our Creator’s majesty

Over all this world’s temporal adversity
