God Raise Me to Your Eternal Joy   Leave a comment

With thanks I lift my heart to You

To know the unexpected

Amazed by what I see

In my heart where your eyes see

Today friends in love unite

Surrounded by your presence

The flora bouquet of Your delights

Alive with more I pray each day

Faith is believing in what I cannot see
With patience waiting in Spirit’s company
I put my trust in Thee


Standing Strong   Leave a comment


In a world of psychological blight

When fear and doubt obstruct our sight

Foundations crack to rock us to the core

Shaken yet not overtaken


Never can we ever lose our grip

Engraved in each of us the promised hope

No matter what the world can hurl at us

The truth still stands and will remain


This life is dust; this world a passing vapor

As day winds down and life’s years taper

Take up the banner; embrace the fact

That Jesus Christ is coming back


Don’t take my word; see for yourself

Invest in what cannot be corrupted

A promise of peace uninterrupted

Assurance of faith and love upon which we can rely


Faith is believing in what you cannot yet see

I know you know that only fools are mystified

The disease of more, false hopes, and temporal bliss

Try to cloud the minds of  poor souls who might miss

The Spirit’s call of heavenly angels in our midst

We know better — Yes we do

Love was, love is, and always will

Conquer every ail, and in Christ, eternally prevail

Thank you God for nature 

That models what to do

When things are in good order

Chaos falls away

Peace returns, and calm prevails

If only for a while 

I’ll remember what it’s like

To know that I can live in harmony

And choose a better life




Evening   Leave a comment

Evening comes and takes with it activity, and color, and conversation too

And leaves me with a quietness accompanied by the Spirit sense

The dim begins to blanket earth, and soul, and memory

And beckons me to rest

Oh God I pray to always honor You 

And  find You even in my dreams









A Free Bird   Leave a comment

If our hearts were made of brick the mortar would be tears


Life demands nothing less than to dissolve our hardened hearts


To free us from these pain-filled walls

With each tear shed, another brick falls


Unable to withstand the Spirit’s call

This stony heart, is now a veil of Sacred tears


The angels enter to do the Spirit’s work

With firm resolve by God’s commission

Their promise is to never leave

By free will, that gift from God

The Spirit’s treasures are released


Tears still are shed, but now are shared

A salty pool of mixed emotions

Some days in pain, but most in joy

Assured that we are not alone

And the work we do, is not in vain




An Overdue Letter   Leave a comment

I cannot let a week go by without leaving a reply

Each day You send Your love, Your mercy, and Your grace

In return I send my prayers, petitions, and more pleas

To rescue earth from human ignorance, and sometimes from myself

Oh God, what will it take for all of us to trust Your plan and live in perfect peace


I miss my dog, I love my wife

I have what others might see as an enchanted life

I’ve been blessed beyond belief

They cannot see or know concerns

That are only known by You


I love to be inspired – to write to You my love

You, my Maker, make of me, what You would have me be

Enough for You, and to share with others too

With kindness and with compassion

To be pleasing in Your sight

And now I pray to sleep in peace

With all my love, I say good-night



An Overdue letter
