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

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

The Offering   Leave a comment

I love eggs and the value of nutrition they fulfill

I love that for a chicken it is not a sacrifice but an offering

That without guilt I can thoroughly enjoy

My friend offered her suggestion of how much better it would be

To have and taste farm fresh eggs from her sister’s hand raised hens

The idea became a desire that I quietly tucked away

When to my delight on a country walk I met these hens the very next day

It’s so important to remember

All the desires that our hearts and minds contrive

Because dreams soon become erased

In the maze of life’s unknowns

But God who knows us all so well

Forgets not his children’s hearts

Our grandest and even littlest thoughts are logged

Engraved in God’s own heart

We are the River   Leave a comment

Lord, oh God, Creator

Most Mighty, Holy One, Sacred and Supreme

When in lowly valley I fall sullen

You appear mysteriously so sudden

You gratefully redirect

My wanderings and my schemes

And permeate my dreams

The earth, and all of us, Your creation

Symbolic of who You are

Rivers flow on endlessly

Quenching the thirst of earth and all dependent on it

The waters unseen work churns beneath the surface

Hiding deep within its banks and bottom

Precious gems and many treasures

Living waters return to You in greater measure 

By sweeping up each soul in its holy water

We, who You made most magnificent

We, who You trusted with Your creation

Return to You, most Holy One, who we call our Maker 

And better yet, to love you more, as our Mother and our Father
