What to Do with the News   1 comment

So let’s talk about the news

The kind you overhear or what you choose

All is, and all can be

A sacred opportunity for positivity

It is free will to walk according to The Way

To enliven our mind

To open our hearts

To raise up our voice



So, God, I pray

When I hear Your Spirit say

This is your battle to fight

This is your heart to mend

That I will respond humbly encouraged

To gratefully always say YES


Why We Need God   Leave a comment

Oh God, why do I stray

When You have shown You always know the way

The way that leads to peace, and joy, and life

You who are a constant source of strength for challenges unknown

The days of infancy are frail, and so vulnerable

We cannot survive alone

Now full grown I need You still

And desire You even more

Knowing that without You near

I am still so frail, and so vulnerable


Why We Need You

A Power Greater   3 comments

FBClouds copyEvery heart longs for love 

And desires Your approval

Yet mortality makes worthiness sometimes seem so out of reach

How can You entrust us with so much

And how can we forget Your love

And Your unfailing acceptance 

In all things You have made us

More than conquerors, You have made us

Although at times enslaved by worldly thoughts 

Ideas wrought my man and not by Spirit

Help us please to grasp the Sword of Your Spirit

That slays phantom dragons and shatters lies that no longer can consume us

Arm us to protect new seeds to grow in Your love and in Your light

One with You, worthy of kinship, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ

From across a four lane avenue in D.C., 

  I couldn’t mistake the identity of this magnificent bronze sculpture, and the great contributions made by Albert Einstein – The next thought that came to mind was another 20th Century figure, Bill Wilson, who in my opinion, has also had a similar if not greater positive effect on our society – and both have acknowledged the existence and necessity of belief in a Higher Power – Grateful 😉

Thank you God for giving me opportunity 

And the ability to freeze

Precious moments fleeting fast

And faster still in memory

When eclipsed by day’s events

In actuality so minuscule

When confronted by Your majesty



Help Me God to Not Let the World Steal My Time With You   Leave a comment

There is so much time I want to spend with You

Just You and I with nothing else to do

However, the world it seems to push and pull

When my soul is simply so content to ponder and design

Poetic works for You that rhyme

All the benefits of what we share never interfere with worldly obligations

When the priority is to be with You in love and oblation




Suddenly   Leave a comment

God, You who are so full of wonder

I never know when You’ll appear

But when You do it always seems to be amazingly

So suddenly

In anticipation of your soon appearance what else can I do

But get busy moving forward with what is in my hands

My heart, with its tomorrows, I will place in Yours

To cease the battle of push and pull, to end this force of will

And finally be still 

With patience, waiting, trusting You to once again appear

You answer prayers in Your good time, yet all the time You’re near

And then without a warning, suddenly You’re here
