God’s Timing   Leave a comment

Seeking to spend time with You with pen in hand

To connect, to listen, with hope to be inspired

The phone interrupts our discourse

Or so I thought

Hesitation gave way as I answered

To find that this untimely interruption

Was Your calling that I was longing

For the greatest gift of good purpose

Is our usefulness to another

Giving time of self bears the riches of a crown of jewels

My soul is lifted and refreshed by the humble response of the caller who is blest

And I imagine angel scribes in heaven

Making note of our connectedness and kindliness

As they too marvel at the wonder of Your timing

Flight   1 comment

Flying in a metal bird

Made from man’s imagination

All this effort and ingenuity

To get from here to there

For years of countless generations

This has been a burning quest

Requiring time and talent and much unrest

To first believe then achieve a skyward peopled flight

I propose that this has been disguised and often unidentified

This inner knowing, constant yearning, mental churning

Desire to attain an ultimate and evident closeness to the Heavens

To be nearer to our home

Oh foolish generation

Who knows not God as Love

A commuter-ship to Mars and back still would leave a desert gap

If not navigated by the Spirit

Making heaven home the mark

By pleasing our Creator

With love for one another

Is a worthy goal and an unparalleled destination

Brightening Our Day   2 comments

These would be

If I could choose

The birthday candles

I would choose

To celebrate this day

Bright as snow

Feathers woven from white rose petals

God’s gifts for every moment

Thank you Father-Mother, our Creator

That I’ve been born

And born again to celebrate

Birthdays here and now and one day soon in heaven

Growing Home   3 comments

An infant wiggly wide-eyed wanderer

Innocence in a world of wonder

Knowing only love and momma kisses

Growing in my body

Conversely shrinking in my soul

When momma kisses were no more

Through self-inflicted tragedies and flirtations with life’s end

The turn around was just beyond the bend

When an unexpected occurrence in my heart began

Jesus was introduced as my Savior and my friend

Astounded by this newfound love

A gift from God our Father-Mother from above

How to live expecting the miracle each new day can bring

To never again be alone

To live to love

Each day getting closer … while I’m growing home

I Find You When I Seek You   6 comments

I’ll keep my eye on You
To distract me from a world that’s torn apart
For my world with You
Is whole and filled with peace
When I keep my eye on you

We are not far from forever
We are living here and now each day for the better
While my heart runs its race with quickened pace to find its way to You
I think of living now as Our forever

Coincidence, a nod from You
Vibratory sunset hues
An angel in disguise
Shows me You are near
Not just now but always and forever

The Signs of New Beginnings   3 comments

Angels woo me with their murmurings

Assurance that they’re near

Taunting, almost haunting their energy so clear

Like water purified and rushing to carbonate the soul

To inspire one to inquire how to reach the highest spire

While still tethered to the earth

Prayers authored by the heart

Rise above this graven gravity

Informed by the eternal, ignited by God’s love

Knowing Where My Home Lies   2 comments

How happiness can be curtailed

By the sudden notion of its temporariness

How families once united must each go their own way

That nothing in this world can stay

In any sort of constant state

Oh grievous heart now heavy sinks

When all at once acknowledging

This is not my home

Do not here relax and think

That this is all there is

Oh God with strings from heaven

Lift my heart to Thee

Where angels sing and love and joy is born anew in each and every moment

Where eyes are fixed on only You

For this is why I know

That to You my heart belongs

And for You, I live a foreigner

On this plain till work is done

With love to give me breath each day to carry on
