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

A Birthday Blessing to Reach Across the Veil   1 comment

Today’s the day my ‘Tazel was born

Her purpose God only knew

That one day she’d become the one

To love and care for me

A toddler without a mom

Her heart reached into mine

To become the one I’d call ‘Tazel not Mom

Yet still to me, then and now, the same

No matter what the name

Not born to her by flesh

But born to her by love

 

 

 

It is Always Now   5 comments

I pray here now to declare

Your presence ever vibrant here

To speak aloud Your glories

In the eyes that meet You in the mirror of Your creation

To not absorb my self with self

But rather selflessly release

Free will to become one with Yours

Harness thoughts that seek an unknown future

Speed the track from past to present

Memories that shackle when dwelt upon too long

Or living in an impossible tomorrow

In an air that only You can breathe

Bring me back to this moment

Where I can be of love and service to live in full expression

Like a flower blooming on the vine

Never minding fate of wilting, falling

Back to earth then heavenward where the journey never ends

While still unfurling petals grow to magnify its beauty

With nature all surrounding giving homage to You near

A Good Day   1 comment

It has been a long, good day

Filled with work and little play

As most know play to be

But for me today has been

A day of productivity

Mixed with fun because of work I love

And the added satisfaction of Petunia near at hand

All day long I looked forward to this moment here and now

To sit, relax, and ponder

Letting thoughts listlessly wander

To put aside responsibility

But I pray dear God, no matter what

To include You in my busy-ness, in listlessness, in thought, and word, and deed

And keep you closer still, as close as breath could be

How Much Time Do You Have for Me   3 comments

I can wait

For I am eternity

Waiting for your desire

To spend all of it with Me

Patience is a gift

And I cannot give to you

What is not already all of Me

Open your heart

And your eyes will see

A glimpse of all I have in store for thee

Be prepared to receive My love

In measure so immeasurable

It must overflow to burst upon a hungry, wanting, waiting world

As my messenger you receive

The gift of being my ambassador

You may not see your reward today but do not be forlorn

For hope is ministered through my angels’ hands to feed your soul, to keep you strong

Remember I am faithful

And I am always with you

Waiting, wanting, loving you

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
