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

Staying Aloft   3 comments

I pray to not let the churning of the world’s endless disturbance

Deter me from the sacred space I share with Thee

Listening for the song of Your Spirit calling

In concert with all Creation

Attention on the promise of Your peace and Your protection

Overcoming darkness in the light of Your reflection

Mining the goodness in each other

Living because of Your unconditional gift of Love

That multiplies with every offering of thanks

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

and EMPOWER OUR WORLD

To PRAY PRAY PRAY

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

Slowing Down   Leave a comment

The train has left the station — but my mind, that is speeding forth on a faster track, has already arrived at its predetermined destination — Unable to recount where I have been the rationale disguised as truth insists — “What you’ve missed is worth the price to get where you are going.” 

***

It requires a necessary discipline, halting tracks to slowing down — To reconnect with the source of life, that in its disregarded elegance seems to beg for my attention. How could I give Creator and creation praise … blinded sometimes by my own intentions?

I wind down, breathless and amazed … as though it is a first. This free, most precious gift exciting senses, calming soul with Spirit’s peace — bares a beauty that abounds with seeds for endless blooming.

 

POWER CONVERTER   Leave a comment

Hope’s opposite is despair

And when we find ourselves admittedly there

Only Faith and Prayer with Gratitude

Can lead us back to where

The Spirit’s light shines bright  again

Sustaining Peace   Leave a comment

I didn’t read the news today … oh boy
I breathed in peace and exhaled joy
I resisted temptations to be drawn by news alerts that quite often make me sad
Words intended to engage and then enrage

Instead I hoped for the discipline of a better habit
To draw upon more earnestly each morning’s offering of Divine Good News
To not only sustain me for what the day may bring
But to feed souls and give good reason for hearts to sing

I read good news today … oh boy
It wasn’t about what we’re against but what we are for 
Engendering peace … preventing war

Living as One   4 comments

Aware you’ve drawn to me your sole attention

I freeze in wonder where to turn

Readying to swiftly spring to speedy flight

Then as usual in calm composure you casually stroll away

You see my likes most every day

But how often do you take the time

To contemplate my being

Or comprehend the miracle that we are all connected

Not by Easter or sadly not by stew

But rather that the same Creator

Loves as much both me and you
