Baptism Requires Getting Wet   Leave a comment

In waters deep or shallow

I pray to keep rekindling this truth

To live today and give to You tomorrow

On my own I would drown in a puddle of doubt and sorrow

But with You, my God of all things possible

We can walk on water

Things are Looking Up   Leave a comment

You can float — And you can fly

And even walk if the ground is dry

Your very presence offers me

Reminders of endless possibilities

There is Only One   2 comments

The colors in the sky are too many to name and varied beyond belief

We try to memorize or duplicate to rekindle for relief

You leave us with indelible impressions everywhere

Water is Your mirror providing for our pleasure and our needs

You are water, You are light, You are the air we breathe

Without any part of all of You nothing could survive

But mere existence is not Your aim

We are made for Your delight, and to delight in You

To love when days are dark or light

To trust that once and for all

You are for one … and for all

With eyes fixed on Your magnificence

Our hearts burst forth with what becomes uncontainable and clear

That the breath of our lifeblood is in our acts of love and care

And to acknowledge that You are with us at all times and everywhere

This Day   Leave a comment

Let me mark this day as one of reckoning

Where again I turn my heart and all to God

The only One who knew who would be next to come into the Kingdom

And yes although it’s hard to believe 

A Forgiveness, and a mercy, and a grace so great 

That somehow even the perpetrator has a place 

Oh God please help me here to love with your love of this sordid human race

To each his and her own separate, together with, distinct and so defined, in rhythm with the moment … the moment that is nowAttachment-1

Growing Faith   Leave a comment

I pray your faith to rise in me as a relentless mounting tide
And Your Love and Grace to continually wash over me 
That I might forever be, a part of all that is Thee

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
