God Thank you for the Further Proof of Your Existence   Leave a comment

For every living creature I have loved still is loved

Growing greater with every remembrance

May it be with Your love in me to deeply love all near to me

I pray to hold one another in the highest esteem

And when challenged by self-righteous judgment to first look in the mirror

For the prison bars of grievances to have no power

Over love that can never be hidden from your eyes

I claim this day to walk with You

To take time to embrace the beauty that can always be found when sought

For You who lives in each of us is always near

Exposing truth, expressing love, in both the obvious and sometimes mysterious

For your ways may be impervious to knowing

But we know without a doubt when You’ve been here

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

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

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

Let There Be Light   1 comment

Black and white gives me a greater sense of the power of light … and the power of light gives me a greater knowledge of the power of God … and the power of Love that is, where ever I choose to find it …

What it Takes to Keep Ducks in a Row   2 comments

Oh God you have been my go to — in between and during — all of this life’s demands 
And now I find myself discontent while searching emails, browsing Facebook, Instagram, or text
How quickly … how quickly … how quickly I suddenly forget
That the info that I need to look for are the messages from You
The Holy Spirit that guides all that I seek to know and need to follow
The wonder you have bestowed in nature … here and now before me … almost begging to be seen and be acknowledged 
And above all, with gratitude aplenty, be a vessel overflowing faith and love and peace that comes from simply seeking You

Crossing Paths   2 comments

I look for crosses everywhere

Especially when doubtful or in despair

But how amazed am I

When crosses cross my path

Unknown to me instead
