A Couple of Firsts   Leave a comment

One of my first instructors in photography taught me that the eye will always be drawn to the light in the image.

That struck me as profound and still does even more so today – Whether conscious or not, light is what we seek and what inwardly we know is life.

For me, God is my light, God is love, and has provided a promised path to follow –

Another first — When I heard this scripture in my first formal study of scripture from Genesis to Revelation – it literally burned into my heart, and the heart of my memory.

Proverbs – 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways – acknowledge Him – and He will direct your paths.

That path is the light and love of God that each day I must commit to follow anew. I sometimes don’t know where it will lead but I trust in the Lord with all my heart to follow — For me the alternative would be living in the shadows with fear and doubt.

I love God, I love light, and yes, I love, and am grateful for the gift of photography — to continue to search for the light and live it through pictures, and with words to magnify God’s presence, I pray.

Advent’s Light Beyond the Darkness   Leave a comment

Oh Morning Sun, shine upon this soul

Rise up, abort the lingering shadows

Exchanging light with hope

Refine the ragged edges of my faith

Or cast your shadow long

That I might have a path to follow

To search You out beyond the darkness

 As one drowning

Desperate to surface

Your light, my life

Your love, the air I need to breathe

May I embrace the day, though suffering

To know there is an end

Reach out to save this soul

Sunken deep in hibernation

Where oh God is our connection

Is this the shadow time of waiting

To ponder what comes next

Anticipating and remembering

Your Son once born to earth?

Please revive within this soul

Christ Jesus’ love and spirit

New life, to give it purpose

The Greatest Cargos in Life Come in On Quiet Seas   Leave a comment

Where am I without Your presence

Not knowing You are near

Existing only, lonely

Nothing worldly satisfies

Out of darkness, softly silent

You appear

Heart cannot contain my gladness

Freed imprisoned tears, holy water

Falling droplets, dripping downward

Salted air, caressing Spirits

Wanting only to linger always with You there

One day soon I know this joy of Oneness

Will forever be, eternity

Sworn off moonshine —

Nights no longer haunt me

The Day and I have made a deal

To let its Light begin to heal
