Difficult Personalities are the Scrub Brush that Attains Good Polish   2 comments

The Center of the Edge   2 comments

Here I am standing on the edge of this present moment

At the precipice of here and now

Tempted by tomorrow

Muscles strain to maintain motionless in this place

All might it takes sometimes to merely be at peace and trust

The yet undiscovered treasures of this very moment

Vision clears to realize

All that is worthwhile

I take a breath

Thank God for this

To linger while I smile

Two Hearts   1 comment

Lord, I pray before I dress

To consider all that you have blest

Put my thoughts to test

That in You all reliance rests

 

Consider this

And do not miss

What needs to be your daily quest

 

As far as the east is from the west

Is the extent of My love growing greater never less

On this truth You can surely rest

I have endowed you with my very breath

Given you a heart that beats

Ability with hands and feet

Knowledge of me when I speak

 

Welcome me as you would the morning sun

Trusting that the best is yet to come

Upon this path is born a new day bright

Where in your heart there glows a light

You call it love, I call it might

From which comes all that is good in life

 

Make this your engine’s driving force

Our hearts united on this daily course

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

Brightening Our Day   2 comments

These would be

If I could choose

The birthday candles

I would choose

To celebrate this day

Bright as snow

Feathers woven from white rose petals

God’s gifts for every moment

Thank you Father-Mother, our Creator

That I’ve been born

And born again to celebrate

Birthdays here and now and one day soon in heaven

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
