If only we would dig deep in faith...

Some days the clouds they linger on and block the shining sun
And shadows fall and follow us and nothing can get done
We're caught up in the grips of fate that seem to show life dim
If only we would dig deep in faith; we'd see our hope's in Him

Some days the pains that plague our heart are deep and all around
We find it hard to move about and flee the joyful sound
The smile is hard to form within and so we wear the frown
If only we would dig  deep in faith we'd shine when we are down..

Some days were flying high in hope and nothing seems to hurt
We're laughing loving all around and can see diamonds in the dirt
While these moments  seem limitless they're gone and we forget
If only we would dig deep faith, they're easy enough to get..

So let us learn to live our lives in the good times and the bad
Knowing that in every hour there are  blessings to be had
There's happiness and sadder timers and times we wish were not
If only we would dig deep in faith we'd have what can't be bought

God's Blessings are there for you..

In the early hours of morning, I can hear the sparrow sing
Though I haven't really awakened or started anything
Like a messenger of the sunlight or a herald of the day
This little creature of morning is brightening up my way

When I sit to have some nourishment and have some morning brew
The sound of many creatures is seeping in: it is true
Like a symphony of the  morning or an orchestra most fine
These birds of many feathers are most welcome as I dine

As I open up all the entries and step outside: I see
An array of wonderful beauty is there to welcome me:
The freshness of the dew drops and wonderful ensemble of sound
Accompany the display of awesome that God has splashed around

Like a finder of some treasure I want to hurry up and share
With everyone who'll listen with everyone who'll care
For the awesomeness that's out here is also out there too
You have only to open up to see: God's blessings are there for you

Outside our window

The sunlight is "peeking" across the lawn
While all the universe is beginning to yawn
So much of God's sweetness is filling the air
While creatures are calling and singing everywhere..

The quietness of morn is delighting my soul,
And clouds, oozing with rain, are starting to stroll...
Yet, the diners of daylight, are pecking away
At the spread of seed, I have put out, without display..

Gentle droplets of rain are creating some rhyme
Rhythmic their sound that blesses our time
Soaking the earth, so drenched and worm:
We wait, to see, the rainbow of morn..

Hushed the seconds that are filling my house
So quiet it is, you could hear a mouse...
But mice wouldn't play here, inside of my place
For kitties would hurry to stifle their pace...

Outside of your window, what is it you see?
Would you put it in verse, and share it with me?
For the beauty, outlining your parcel of land
Can serve to uplift you and steady your stand...

He has invited me daily

In memory of Lambert Klumper: Rest in Peace

 I touched all the heavens, and I touched the sky
 I tasted the sweetness of love passing by
 In all of the universe and in all of the air
 God is all Present, and He is everywhere...

 In all of the minutes and in all of the day
 Angels are working to prepare me a way
 For the passing of Heaven in the Spirit of love
 Inviting each person to  the Heavens above

 In each of the plantlets and in all of the sea
 In everyone present and in all humanity
 An echo is sounding: a force calm and still
 Is preparing this world for the Eternal One's Will

 I've fought the good fight now am ready to see
 My Maker, Creator, The Most Holy Three
 For far from this world and all it can give
 He has invited me daily to come There and live

The things we miss

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

The sun will rise and the sun will set
But all this beauty;  our minds reject?
For..we have to run and we have to  buy
But it's just a moment..oh won't you try..

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

The raindrops fall and the thunder claps
A twirling wind, lifts a tree that snaps
The calm will come and the rainbow shine
And we'll see all this if we have the time..

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

The sparrow chirps and the songbird sings
Before we're awake or the  alarm clock rings
But it doesn't have to  occur this way
We can rise up early and welcome the day

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

A baby's hand or a simple cry
The beggar who begs and we all pass by
The person who weeps and the old who wait
All these we miss when we're running late

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

So the timing's now and  the time is here
For us to take some moments to really hear
For the clock it's ticking and the day will end
Will we be any wiser will we learn my friend?

In every moment...and in every hour
Wisdom is speaking with all her power
Will we ever hear ..and  will we ever see
The things we miss..when we're too busy?

What are we doing?


Oh what are we doing, and what have we become
Can we stop for a moment: stop everyone
Stop all of this fighting,and stop all the hate
Heaven is crying and it's getting too late... 

The headlines, the media, the word on the street
Is echoing a sorrow that is tragically deep 
We've lost it the innocence the reason for being
And  become all  this madness that we're continuously seeing

Oh what are we doing, and what have we become
Can we stop for a moment: stop everyone
Stop all of this fighting,and stop all the hate
Heaven is crying and it's getting too late... 

The politics; the newsroom; the riots that arise
Are shaking the universe... from the floor to the skies
The elements; the minerals;  the air and the sea
All of them, are revolting.. Oh when will we see......?

Oh what are we doing, and what have we become
Can we stop for a moment: stop everyone
Stop all of this fighting,and stop all the hate
Heaven is crying and it's getting too  late... 

Whatever your reasoning  and whatever you say
Can never excuse it: what's  happening today
The hatreds the agendas the divisions we see
All of them are shouting ..and a reckoning will be..

Oh what are we doing, and what have we become
Can we stop for a moment: stop everyone
Stop all of this fighting,and stop all the hate
Heaven is crying and it's getting too  late...
