Whispers in the wind

Crickets serenade us ..as the day is drawing near:
Their soothing sound is inviting and for everyone to hear.
The morning is softly singing her tunes, so clean; so pure:
Nothing is much sweeter than, this music ..I am sure...

The wind is gently blowing and is dancing in the trees
Something, inside her whisper, is telling us things that please:
The beautifulness of the Heavens and the awesomeness of God
Is echoing  from the plantlets and from the earth we trod.

The newly shining star of morn..the golden sun.. so true
Has it's own insider notes...its wanting to share with you
But only if you are willing to sit inside of it's glow
And meditate upon the One who gives us all we can know..

Listen, then, most carefully; before your day is begun,
To everything that's shouting out, without speaking to anyone...
With whispers, that are magnified, so that our heart can hear:
Morning sends her messengers if we will let them near...

Do you have time to hear this?

Quietly ..the morning is breaking through. the remnants of the night
And we are getting  a glimmering of her beauty and her coming light
Golden beams are starting to glow and we are seeing the beautiful rising sun
How wonderful it is to see it all coming about..the new day that has begun..

Gently every molecule is starting to circulate and invade our space
We are feeling the sweetness of the dawn as she kisses us on the face
Brushes of the passing breezes and the softness of the blowing winds
Are turning us all towards the Creator  .. as this new day gently begins.

The temptation to rush, right through the everything. is surely here
For it's how we would normally function ...as the day is drawing near
But something deep down inside of us is saying .."Take your time"
"Listen to the elements and the universe and maybe create some rhyme..."

Oh the peacefulness of the sounds that we are all beginning to hear
As the morning starts to shine on through the dark of night that begins to clear
Creatures of every kind are jumping out and poking at everything around
Searching for those morsels that would prove to be the best they've ever found

Closing down on this rambling that I am wanting to share with you
I hope.. I have been able to challenge you  to think for   a minute or two
What is it ...each morning... that is captivating and holding your mind?
Do you always have to rush around and hurry through the evolution of time...

Can't you hear it

Won't you listen, can't you hear it .. all that silence everywhere
It is speaking ..it is shouting but no one hears it anywhere
In its caverns gently resting ..priceless treasures all aglow
Are inviting and describing all the secrets we should know...

Hear the movement of the many: countless angels  on the run
They are watching and are keeping: gently chiding everyone.
Spiritual beings sent from Heaven with a mission, that is  dear
Keeping humans ...from destruction: all their warnings ..we should hear

Have you tried it... this old remedy: sweet redemption for our minds
Quiet musings.. meditations.. forming music and sweetest rhymes
From the Spirit deep inside us from the Heavens to our souls
God is using prayerful moments to instill in us His lasting goals.

Would you venture .. would you try it .. penning down some simple thought
See what wisdom streams on through you if you surrender as you ought
All the Heavens..all the angels.. all the universe that is around
In an instant ..in a moment and through the Spirit can be found..

Our own garden of Eden

I was touching every molecule as I reached up into the breeze
Each one left me feeling,  something, nobody can ever see:
The essence of all the Universe; the presence of the Great Divine..
I was holding, for a moment, Someone greater than this heart of mine

Oh if only we could contain it ...all this Godness all around
We would be.. so much.. the better;  we would be treasures to be found:
But we are all so mortal and are as feeble as can be
We  trade in all our greatness for some novelty that we see..

As the morning sounds were sounding I looked up into the sky
The clouds were beginning to form and I could hear the Heavens sigh
Through the movement of the breezes and the rustling of the wind
I could hear the words of creation as they were echoing once again

Oh if only we could contain it.... all this Godness all around
We would be.. so much.. the better;  we would be treasures to be found:
But we are all so mortal and are as feeble as can be
We  trade in all our greatness for some novelty that we

I could picture it, that first Eden, where our parents of origin ran
How beautiful and unburdened it must have been when life began
No brushes of worldly touches or any wisps of polluted air
Ever pranced across that garden or tainted the inhabitants there..

Oh if only we could contain it ...all this Godness all around
We would be.. so much.. the better;  we would be treasures to be found:
But we are all so mortal and are as feeble as can be
We  trade in all our greatness for some novelty that we.

Only we are able to change it ..all this beautifulness sublime
With all  of our searching intelligence we can wrestle away God's time
Changing it into our own likeness and tarnishing it with our greed
What was once our own garden of Eden has become the Devil's seed....?

Oh if only we could contain it ....all this Godness all around
We would be.. so much.. the better;  we would be treasures to be found:
But we are all so mortal and are as feeble as can be
We  trade in all our greatness for some novelty that we

As free, as free can be...

The cicadas sing and hum here.. as they liven up night and day
Their melody is surely reminding us ..that fall is on the way
Like the sounding of a thousand rattlers they invite us take a chance
And see if within their rythmn we can we resist the need to dance?

And so we feel the movement that every creature is feeling  outside
It moves within our being and is bidding us "do not to hide"
We have it within our beings, our intellects  and  our will
To step outside of this rat race and allow our spirits to feel

Softness seems to creep in as we are walking into the breeze
It whispers into our beings and enables the unseeing to see..
The certainty of what's awaiting us if we could, but, let all go
It is echoing throughout the universe who is the Eternal's glow

And so we feel the movement that every creature is feeling  outside
It moves within our being and is bidding us "do not to hide"
We have it within our beings, our intellects  and  our will
To step outside of this rat race and allow our spirits to feel

Must we always be so caught up in the running of here and there
Couldn't we ever just slow it all  and become so truly aware..
That all that we've been chasing after  and paying so much to see
Has been, right here, inside of us; and is free as free can be..

And so we feel the movement that every creature is feeling  outside
It moves within our being and is bidding us "do not to hide"
We have it within our beings, our intellects  and  our will
To step outside of this rat race and allow our spirits to feel

Who is this being...?

She stole them:  my senses, my heart and  my will
In her presence ..I was lifeless..I could only be still
Every morning .every evening.. every hour of the day
She moved me and soothed me and showed me the way

Who is this being this most beautiful one
She has captured my spirit. by all she has done
The universe; the cosmos;  the mother of all
She constantly sustains us..the great and the small

Like a bride who was waiting.. she looked out at me
To arrest me with loveliness and all I could see
She spoke to my spirit and she spoke to my will
Come rest here beside me and let your heart feel..

Who is this being this most beautiful one
She has captured my spirit. by all she has done
The universe; the cosmos;  the mother of all
She constantly sustains us..the great and the small

With her I am the safest and  know  I can go
With all of my worries..she surely will know
What answers to give me what spiritual advice
In the arms of this mother I learn what is nice

Who is this being this most beautiful one
She has captured my spirit. by all she has done
The universe; the cosmos;  the mother of all
She constantly sustains us..the great and the small

All this beautifulness...

The morning snuck in and roused me ..she shook me from my sleep
She whispered into my restfulness ...some secrets I could keep
Waking up, I stared and looked at her..she was beautiful as can be
Shining through my opened  window ..these words she sang to me

Rise up now and see it: it's never too late for you,to see
All this beautifulness, that's around here..radiating so magnificently
Like a tapestry from the Heavens, like some living live piece of art
You can see here, in each moment, the sentiments of God's Heart

The words, she sang, were deep, here; they were digging down deep in me:
Leaving, in me, the sweetest caverns.. where I could go..to get relief
The effectiveness of all these moments, the awesomeness of every  morn
Always seems to affect me differently; but, her words, in me, are reborn

Rise up now and see it: it's never too late for you,to see
All this beautifulness, that's around here..radiating so magnificently
Like a tapestry from the Heavens, like some living live piece of art
You can see here, in each moment, the sentiments of God's Heart

The creatures outside all know this they welcome each morn with song
And peck away with so much gracefulness it's hard not to join along
Their melodies are so inviting ...their welcoming..so true and  real
No prejudices come from within them ..only God's loving you will  feel..

Rise up now and see it: it's never too late for you,to see
All this beautifulness, that's around here..radiating so magnificently
Like a tapestry from the Heavens, like some living live piece of art
You can see here, in each moment, the sentiments of God's Heart

Won't you all take time to join us.. in this movement.. of the rising dawn
And greet each morn with so much  wonderment, putting away that sluggish yawn?
Looking out for the unique and wonderful won't you allow yourselves this feast
That greets us and all our senses, when the morning stars rises, up in the East..

Show us what that Sunday Sermon was made of..

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

We are all just as able as you think you  are
To be that light..that glow .. that shining star
Yes..We've  made those beds  .those few mistakes
But we're all trying to learn and  change for goodness sakes

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

It is true that we don't seem to ever measure up
To that fancy feast or wine filled cup
But we are all still the children of the Lord Most High
Struggling, trying to live; and just get by

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

You are staring at us with such a grimacing look
Like those, who are damned inside your Sunday Book
But..don't you know that you might possibly be..
The only Gospel people  we will ever see?

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

That crowd, you frequent,  tells you to stay far away
From people like us..the undesirables along the way
How can we ever become what you consider.."normality"
If condemnation and hatred is all we can ever hope to see

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

Take a moment to think of us..next time you pray
The people you avoid and consider hopeless along the way
How would the Father you approach think of what you've done
To make us feel uninvited and not part of your everyone..?

Don't judge us by the color of our skin
Or by the trouble that you think we've been in
Don't look at us and judge us without true love
Look at us and show us..what that Sunday Sermon was made of

Tell me your secrets...

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it   with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see..

I won't be judgmental.. I'll listen with care
Tell me those memories too burdensome to bare
I'll hold you and hug you..I'll give you my arm
No one will hurt you or cause you alarm...

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it   with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see..

You'll look like your happy but that's not what I see
You're forcing a smile here..when it's obvious to me
You're masking a tragedy..and a pain in your heart
That laughter's too forced here..you're healing can't start

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it  with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see....

You're running and whirling like some twirling top
You're ignoring the inside and never will stop
The noise of your actions are betraying your hurt
You covering your sorrows like some seedling with dirt

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see..

Come..stop all that running..yes stop for awhile
Allow yourself healing..that's so out of style
You're running and running from sorrows inside
Let go of that feeling that you're needing to hide.

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it  with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see..

When you've  finally embraced it that sorrow inside
You'll look at this wide world and no longer hide
The secrets that made you like punishment or shame
But shout them and share them like honors to your name

Tell me your story..oh why do you weep?
What are those secrets you carefully keep..
You are not needing to mask it  with me..
Someone has hurt you.it's easy to see..

Yes, it's early morning, here, in North Carolina

When the morning comes and knocks upon my door
I am eager to see what she has for me, in store
Sounds are sounding soft and sweet and  clear
I cannot wait to see what I am able to hear..

Yes, it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

The water's running  and splashing's all around
My crystal cat is in it: true happiness she's found
She is a crazy cat; but I love her ... she is truly dear
That's why I thank my God.. I'm living over here..

Yes,  it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

The humming sounds of the cicadas start my  day
And romping creatures hope I will not linger or delay
Their tasty treats... I sprinkle ...gives them so much happiness
It's wonderful to witness and see so much beautifulness

Yes, it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

Up above me my landlord is still, peacefully..sleeping away
He's kind and caring and an angel in his own way
God put me in his path and I thank Him truly .for that
God knew where I would be the most comfortable at..

Yes, it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

I have a friend.. here.. who is like a sister.. should always be
She's been everything and more than I can ever need
Like the angel, above me ..God planned this all to be
Thank you Jesus for my friend Lena and her care for me..

Yes, it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

So now I need to  halt  this poem I carefully write
So I can  venture out into the beautiful waking light
I'm here in this state so grand so large.. so dear
I thank you God for bringing me over here.

Yes, it's early morning here in North Carolina
Somewhere else..day's ending..like out in China
But I am going to appreciate it.. every moment that I find
So that nightfall will find me with God's beauty on my mind

Dayton, our dear sister..

Be still all you elements and molecules too
Too many these heartaches that are filtering through
My heart cannot take it . .my soul is in pain
Our earth is chaotic with  murderous refrain

Dayton our dear sister and sweet city of gems
Is now flooded with heartache and bloody red hems
Another mass shooting... another painful event
Is crying out to the Heavens:  oh killers..relent

What are we becoming and what is this about
The earth is being saturated ..the elements all shout
Hatreds and fighting ... prejudices too
Becomes all this violence that's coming on through

Don't make this about politics or  debatable view
These tragedies and heartaches merit something more  true
Put away all  of your self seeking ...  your gathering of votes
Dig deep down inside you and compose some sympathetic notes

Tears for El Paso

Tears for El Paso..tears and more tears
How can we deny it this sound in our ears
Weeping and crying is  everywhere around
Bullets were flying with death in their sound

The madness that moved this can't ever make sense
How could anyone just do this ...reload and dispense
Randomly..and cowardly...and shooting away
This shooter so hatefully memorialized  this day

How painful how tragic how gut wrenching inside
I carry it and bear it this news from outside
My sisters my brothers... your cries hit me deep
With all those, who, sorrow now:  I bow down and weep


Be that living testimony

If you believe in Jesus and you say you really do
Why aren't you more like Jesus wherever you are passing through
In every one of your actions  ..are you with everyone..the same?
Are you truly that living testimony of our beloved Savior's Name..

It is all, so very exciting, to post those faith filled bold remarks
On your Facebook or your twitter.. like some Spirited fiery sparks
But what about those many places where nobody else can give acclaim
Are you still that living testimony of our Beloved Savior's Name

Are there some things you're ashamed of..and will never ever will tell;
Yet you go on with all your  preaching and sending everyone off to hell?
IF you are a truly that Believer that is missioned to become a flame
Then you'll become that living testimony of our Beloved Savior's Name.

Just be you...

Today be you and see what fun
Can be found where ever you run
Not trying to please just being your you
Just letting your you-ness shine on through

For you are enough.. you always are
Don't matter how near don't matter how far
Your beautifulness .. your wonderfulness
Will transform and change all emptiness

Don't look for love but be that love
That you deserve and are dreaming of
You'll set a fire and a peaceful rage
That'll ignite each town and fill each page

For you are enough  ..you always are
Don't matter how near..don't matter how far
Your beautifulness..your wonderfulness
Will transform and change all emptiness

You'll see the tears you'll see some hate
But don't get discouraged or turn irate
But send your love your inner soul
Into this world without lasting goal..

For you are enough.. you always are
Don't matter how near don't matter how far
Your beautifulness .. your wonderfulness
Will transform and change all emptiness

Go be a light go be you today
Be for some soul a better way:
To see; to hear; to know inside..
God gives us love both day and night

For you are enough.. you always are
Don't matter how near don't matter how far
Your beautifulness .. your wonderfulness
Will transform and change all emptiness

Love is forever and ever...

Love is forever and ever;  and it shouldn't ever ever die
It brings out the world of goodness from morning unto nigh
It gives to the sparkling diamond the power of an "I do"
And can lift the brokenhearted, into wholeness, it is true

We mustn't be afraid to say it..or  to show it along the way
For love is a powerful action: it can brighten up the darkest day
It is there for the beautiful couples.. for the families and the friend
It is that miraculous component that can enable us to truly blend

Wouldn't you be willing to carry it..to every single place that you go
So that, everyone, that you may encounter; could notice its beautiful glow
It will come out in the simplest of gestures of kindness and of care
There won't be any need for any introductions.. everyone will know it's there

Be you, therefore, that ambassador.. of kindness and of endless love
Tell the world about its remedy that we are all so sorely in need of
It isn't too costly or too unique that we can't find it to give it away
No love is that part of our being that makes us like God in every way

(1 Corinthins 13: 1-7)

1If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
4Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

What's wrong with us

Wreckless shooters all around..
Flying bullets start to sound
Bodies falling one by one
Who will stop the loaded gun

Hard to believe a festive day
Was so interrupted..taken away
By the greediest bitterness
Of one who was bent on destructiveness

Stop this madness stop the hate
Healing's needed before too late
All are fighting and all are ill
Something's happening.. it's surreal

Who's the culprit..who's to blame
For all this cancerous growing flame
Mass destruction.. raging war
Angry gunmen.. bloody floor..

Don't pretend to be my friend.....

Don't pretend to be my friend..don't pretend...don't pretend
I have this inner seventh sense..it  picks up on what's pretend
So if you're really going to be caring and in are in my life for real
Don't come here ready to leave me ....it is an awful thing to feel..

I am not looking for any handouts in the line of extra friends
I'm only seeking  connections that are here without pretense.
I'm not another write off  for someone's  list of things to do.
But I'm  someone truly valuable in the right setting it is true..

Don't pretend to be my friend..don't pretend...don't pretend
I have this inner seventh sense..it  picks up on what's pretend
So if you're really going to be caring and in are in my life for real
Don't come here ready to leave me ....it is an awful thing to feel. 

You really must be cautious in the words you choose to say
The way you seem to express them gives your intentions all away
The motives and the reasons and the authenticity or not
Comes out in all you're saying: it's obvious what you've brought...

Don't pretend to be my friend..don't pretend...don't pretend
I have this inner seventh sense..it  picks up on what's pretend
So if you're really going to be caring and in are in my life for real
Don't come here ready to leave me ....it is an awful thing to feel..

I rather be a loner than have a friendship that's untrue
Don't come to me with sweetness if that's  not a part of you
I'd rather someone who is crazy and authentically a fool
Than be on someone's bucket list they feel they have to do....

Don't pretend to be my friend..don't pretend...don't pretend
I have this inner seventh sense..it  picks up on what's pretend
So if you're really going to be caring and in are in my life for real
Don't come here ready to leave me ....it is an awful thing to feel..

Morning muses

Take some time to breathe slowly and listen the wind
Slow down what you are doing...I am asking you again
So much ..you have been missing..and so much  you can lose
The energy around you .. is something you can choose

Look out of your window and see everything that's there:
The sky up above you ..and the gently moving air
The creatures who are seeking and looking for some food
Everything around is saying: Life is really good

Temptations might be taunting and moving you to be sad..
Creating for you images that make everything look bad
But, you have it inside you .. the spirit of our God
You can disperse all of these robbers with one single nod

Don't let daytime escape you without enjoying what's  there
Or night time overtake you without entering into prayer
You are spirit and body and need a balance for the two
Nothing is more fulfilling then a Godly life..it is true..


Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Go now..and be there.

Are you so tired..upset and weary
Over all the nonsense..you've been hearing.
What do you do now.. where should you go
There is, but, one place.. you should know

It is the heart of, One, Who's knowing
All that the media has been showing
It is  that Place where: all is healing
Go now and be there: you'll love that feeling

Have you been searching ..and looking around
For something fulfilling.. but..it can't be found
Perhaps you're going where you can't receive..
Turn off  that noise now ..and simply breathe..

It is the heart of, One, Who's knowing
All that the media has been showing
It is  that Place where: all is healing
Go now and be there: you'll love that feeling

You're feeling abandoned like no one knows you
You're wanting to be part of something ..it's true
But,  you keep on trying, at things that will falter
Only one thing is needed ..and it isn't an altar..

It is the heart of, One, Who's knowing
All that the media has been showing
It is  that Place where: all is healing
Go now and be there: you'll love that feeling

And we wonder what is happening?

Slow down for a little while do you really need to rush
Your feet are always running ...you're getting out of touch
I hardly ever get to see you and I hardly ever hear you say
Let's get together for a little outing or spend some time today...

And we wonder what is happening to the people who we were
Our lives are becoming a rat race we're communicating less for sure
If this is what is required to become part of the American dream
I don't want it; you can have it: it's destroying our happy team

The other day we were talking .. the two of us... we were
A ping lit up your cell phone; you became distracted..it's for sure
Before you knew it,  we were changing: no longer having the time
Consumed with all of the have to's . togetherness was hard to bind.

And we wonder what is happening to the people who we were
Our lives are becoming a rat race we're communicating less for sure
If this is what is required to become part of the American dream
I don't want it; you can have it: it's destroying our happy team

The number of breakups is  mounting in the good ole USA
Divorce and non commitments are so prevalent today
Our people are no longer stopping or taking the time they need
To keep their families united..or to squash out personal greed..

And we wonder what is happening to the people who we were
Our lives are becoming a rat race we're communicating less for sure
If this is what is required to become part of the American dream
I don't want it; you can have it: it's destroying our happy team

The remedy, is so very easy for all this madness, that's everywhere
We need to take some moments and tell some people that we really care
We need to shut down  our cell phones and our computers when we meet
There isn't any other solution .. .this one we cannot beat..

And we wonder what is happening to the people who we were
Our lives are becoming a rat race we're communicating less for sure
If this is what is required to become part of the American dream
I don't want it; you can have it: it's destroying our happy team

Can you hear the whispers?

Morning's whispering to my soul: "It's time to rise and shine"
So much beauty's waiting here ... nothing's out of line
Trees and plantlets; jumping birds; rabbits nibbling away
Waiting for me to greet them all; as I'm starting out my day..

Molecular formations, all unseen; and atoms two by two
Create the atmospheric feel that will push our day on through
The beams of golden yellowness, sweets extensions of the sun
Reach out with so much givingness: and neglect not even one..

The sounding silence from the earth.. supports the creatures song
And if we can listen hard enough we'll be able to join along
For their melody is that of peacefulness that comes from what they do
Our hearts and minds can become their words if we allow God's graces through

Too much rushing and too much noise can smother out the Love
That's oozing from the streams that flow from the Eternalness above
We need to be silent and to be still and let the Spirit speak
For He's not going to try to shout... in His stillness we will meet

Virtual waters...

Inspired by the Virtual Rogue River found on Roku

By the waters..in the silence.. I am immersed inside of me
I hear the trickles splashing softly..soothing all around I see
Birds are singing creatures sounding like a serenade serene
By the waters.. in the silence..mother nature shines pristine..

By the waters .. on  my TV. I can feel .. like I am there
I can picture and imagine what it's like in such clean air
Every morning ..every evening when I'm needing  extra calm
By the waters..on my TV. .I can rest in visual balm..

By the waters flowing gently.. across the screen so big and wide
I can feel it all the healing moving slowly deep inside
Though not present I am present through the virtual world I've found
By these waters flowing gently am immersed in healing sound..

What are you going to do?

The world is needing people who are willing to share and love
It's overloaded with all the others who want to push and shove
Will you be for it that  angel heart..that  giver of love and light
Go out today and be God's love and see how you can make things right

The world would have your fighting and tearing each other down
The Heavens would have you loving and lifting the broken around
We can choose to be the selfishness and the ones who never care
Or we can choose to be the selflessness and spread happiness everywhere

It is ours. each day, to be considering.. what path.. what way we'll walk
We can be the lights and love we learn of or continue to be just talk
It's not the ones who are all holy looking that are the bearers of light
But rather the ones with their tools in hand ready to change all plight

Heatwave

Today's weather is so disastrous; it looms over you and  me
I'm stepping, right out, inside of it: and it isn't hard to see
That this great big shower of humidity: this cloud of moisturous air
Is more than ready to give to us..and  more than ready to share

The sun outside is so glorious ..but it is relentlessly bearing down
All over this busy metropolitan..all over this busy town
It is heating up all the elements and it is heating up all the air
Breathing becomes  more burdensome..it's happening everywhere

It is surely a time to be slowing down; and it is a time be aware
Of the immensity of humidity that is taking over all this air
For those of us, who are laboring,  to take our every breath
This weather could become a harbinger of our near impending death

So pay attention to the weathermen and pay attention to you
You own spirit, inside will self preserve and will warn you it is true..
So don't push yourself too needlessly and don't push yourself at all
This heatwave could become a catastrophe..don't ignore its wake up call

Music's in the air..

The winds are all happy inside the trees
Branches are wrestling with the breeze
Bending, swaying, all the day long
Trees are singing their own beautiful song.

Bees and beetles and butterflies too
Move about the whole day through
Flying and  fluttering and crawling around
All while creating a beautiful sound

Grey sky;  blue sky.. skies of rain
Create an anthem ..a beautiful refrain
For the creative and the artistic one
Everything's a melody waiting to be spun


Sunday, July 14, 2019

Visions, insights, thoughtful prayer

Curtains closed and fans are blowing
Silence gets my senses flowing
Mysteries roam and fill  my head
Every moment holds what God has said

The lack of movement..lack of noise
Gives me things the world destroys
Visions insights thoughtful prayer
Open dialogue with the God of air..

Certainly, the secrets, keep me singing:
Happiness over what God is bringing..
Lovely lifts and Heavenly spaces;
Endless streams of infinite graces

Nothing on this earthly universe
Can compare to what inwardly stirs
When the God of all we can care to see
Leaves His Spiritual gifts inside of me..

Would that you and all around me
could see the things my eyes can see
The glow of Heaven and angelic things
Nothing like this earth's sparkly things

Lovely images

Sunbeams dancing on my sill
Delight my heart inspire my will
Warming whispering in a stream
Lovely images for  my dream

Branches waving ..motioning me
Through my window I can see
Birdlets; leavelets; flowerlets too
All are whispering "I love you

Molecules atoms and  air unseen
Move around me in wisps serene
All so happy but never too loud
They work together;  but never crowd

Glorified showerlets  hazy mist
Create together a gentle kiss
For this sensitive soul of mine
I am uplifted by my God divine

Facing the elements..

Starting off the day... the temperatures are high
I will not make a complaint... and will not  blink an eye
For I "love" the humid air and the stuffiness inside
It makes me feel invincible:  a certain sense of pride

I dance around the molecules and swing around the heat
I let my speeding pulse rate, create for me the beat
I sing   the wonderful wisdom, that comes when I am hot
I should be totally miserable... but thank you, God, I'm not..

The kitties all are laid out ...like children  on some sand
They yawn and yawn a little bit; and paw the air at hand
They take the inclement weather.. like champions that they are
They've learned to face the elements...like "temptations" in a  jar..

You too can find some happiness in the challenges that you meet
If you learn to hear their rhythms and can pick up on their beat
You'll start to dance around them and with them you will sing
God is still the Creator in this moment... and in everything...

Quiet spectator

In the morning outside my door
A quiet rabbit sits on earthen floor
Nibbling seeds meant for the birds
Our eyes lock up..no need for words

The glow of moonlight drifts away
And orangish skies announce the day
Wisps of coolness ride the air
Humid whispers are everywhere

Birds are pecking..squirrels too
This is  their custom..it's so true
Eyeing me, they will flit and fuss
But don't see me as someone dangerous..

I breathe in quietly and remain
A quiet spectator but do abstain
From all the noisy-ness and the rush
I can feel it deeply:  God's love for us..

Today is the day

Today is the day; and there isn't another
It is the right time, to start loving each other
We cannot keep waiting ..we shouldn't delay.
Tomorrow isn't promised; so, let's start it today

You're walking or driving and see someone in need
Do you keep on right by them or slow down your speed
Are you afraid of their intentions afraid they're not real
Who is it,  in your heart, that is telling you how to feel?

Today is the day; and there isn't another
It is the right time, to start loving each other
We cannot keep waiting ..we shouldn't delay.
Tomorrow isn't promised; so, let's start it today

The person's annoying; but, they are needing your care
Do you pretend you don't see them .. pretend they're not there
Or do you put aside your judgments and do you tend to their need
Tell me if you're willing: how would you proceed?

Today is the day; and there isn't another
It is the right time, to start loving each other
We cannot keep waiting ..we shouldn't delay.
Tomorrow isn't promised; so, let's start it today

Your friends are real counselors.. they are directing your aright??
They're ridiculing someone absent with a most nasty delight...
Do you take part in their slandering and their cowardly ways;,
Or do you stand up for the one absent and speak with great praise?

Today is the day; and there isn't another
It is the right time, to start loving each other
We cannot keep waiting ..we shouldn't delay.
Tomorrow isn't promised; so, let's start it today

We all have our morals and we all have our beliefs
But, who will we mimic:  the good Samaritan or the thieves?
Will we be like the rebuilders or the ones who destroy
Let's choose now our resolutions and let them deploy

Today is the day; and there isn't another
It is the right time, to start loving each other
We cannot keep waiting ..we shouldn't delay.
Tomorrow isn't promised; so, let's start it today

Back to wholeness

Come you creatures, all you living
Join my song of happy thanksgiving
We are the oneness.. we..the wholeness
Join me now with greatest devoted-ness

Come you elements... and you matter
Join these word-lets that I gather
From the universe and  its chatter
I am trying to share .. not scatter

Come you listening to  the media
I will free you from this mind anemia
It isn't ..all fatal but a  delirium
That should be loathed more than old Diphtheria

Come all you humans come and hear this
You are missing all of God's goodness
All around you squashed by noisiness
Oozing universe is waiting to share His. bliss




Sunday, July 7, 2019

Let God in

Close your eyes and see within
How God's actions will  begin
To soothe to heal to make things new
God is working His miracles in you

Close your mind and let it rest
Inside the blessings of Your Guest
Who is speaking talking deep
Secret stories for you to keep

Close your ears and let them hear
All the mysteries far and near
From the Heavens from the earth
God is sending you  rebirth...

Close the cellphone laptop too
God is ready to message you
With an energy with an air
No provider can ever compare

The earth is all unsettled

The earth is  unsettled and shaking within
Another quake in California: it's sounding again
Soon it'll be happening..... the greatest one yet
Rubble and destruction ..we'll never forget

The warnings are evident the timing is now
Secure yourselves carefully get ready some how
The structures will shatter like glass with a stone
Be ready be vigilant don't face it alone

The Heavens are expressive ..they're asking us all
To get ready for the omens; for they'll easily fall
Over everyone and everywhere: to waken our hearts
These signs will prepare us: before it all  starts

Our actions aren't isolated..they  don't stay where we are
They can affect every element and can shake every star
The harmony is disrupted and the arguing that we do
Turns around and becomes it: the  catastrophe ..it's true

Oh my, oh my...

I can hear them,  all the feathered ones, singing their hearts away
Darkness hasn't quite faded yet and it isn't yet: light as day
But, they, before the rest of the world have started to sing their song
And, I, somehow, through special grace am invited to sing along

Against the backdrop of a sky that is pinkish as it now appears
I can see the trees all reaching out without restraint or any fears
Within their  branches this symphony. with their songs so suave and dear
That every one, who will stop and listen... will hear that: God is near

So it is that every morning, after I open up my living room door
I repeat the wonder of listening just like I did the day before
I hear the songs... the melodies ..and I look up at the waking sky
That reminds me how much, I am truly blessed.. and  cry out: Oh my ..oh my


Monday, July 1, 2019

Hang in there..

You have life and you have breath
You have escaped the grips of death
You are down.. and you're feeling low
But you are blessed more than you can know

Hang on bravely and ..look around
So many signs of hope are found
Golden sun beams.. skies so blue
These are, all here, just for you

Roof above you..food inside you
Work provided: though it may tire you
Days are lengthy and nights are too
God is loving you ..this is true..

Don't despair now dig in deep
Strength is there for you to keep
Though, depressed, you'll see so clear
God is with you .. ever near

Outside my window

Outside of my window and upon a tree
Some purplish flowers are looking at me
They smile, they wave and sing their song
I can hear their melodies all day long

Like violets but not they all smell good
And delight my eyes just like they should
But if I want to hold them and gather them near
I must be content with holding them here

They are like the heavens: so sweet and serene
And hold the Eternal..if you know what I mean..
For their essence; their beauty; and intense perfume,
Are, all of them, His Echo..He gives their bloom...

I can sit here for hours and write some more
About all of their beauty that seems to soar
Through the elements and molecules that touch me deep
But I have to move on and continue to seek...

God's still God...

The temperatures were sizzling burning up the air
Waves of ozone toxin were rising everywhere
Then there were bursts of action: the clouds let out a roar
And soon the dried up elements weren't thirsty any more

For in the midst of everything ...this heatwave, on the go
Bowed beneath the Heavens: who said God still loves us so...
The rains poured down around us and brought us respite to our day
God is still the Captain and will always make a way

So if you're in your hard place and your life is looking grim
Turn your eyes to Heaven..   place all your trust in Him
Who can change your dryness into water and water into wine
God is still our Father and will help us every time..

There isn't a situation He can't solve or He can't ever fix
He's  still my all time Favorite when I'm in a hopeless mix
For He's proven it throughout the centuries and in this life of mine
He's not going to leave us helpless: for we're in His Heart Divine

We're needing a new America

Can we not try to be more caring and more loving every day
And not always be the ones who have to have right of way
What would it cost us any to sacrifice and show we care:
If only we didn't have to hear our praises everywhere..

What would our world be like if everyone would look around
And help those needy people who are longing to be found
What if we'd let down our barriers and would pull down every wall
We would begin to see the broken and the helpless: great and smll

We have this strange idea of what being human really is
And feel that we have the right to be behaving such as this
Pushing around our agendas and not respecting the rights of any
Doing what we can to advance despite the needs of  many

We are a divided world because we have lost the light within
And have adopted for ourselves a new rule book to help us win
The praise of all the peoples and the respect of the new elite
We frown on the little people and the beggars on the street

A new prophet we are needing...a new voice who will shout it out
That this path that we have undertaken should never make us proud
For we're shunning all the beautiful for the fakeness all around
We are needing a new America ...where the love of others will abound..

Temperatures climb

Temperatures are climbing and its hot everywhere
Heatness and humidity are overtaking the still air
Breathing's more labored and the creatures all crawl
Summer's just starting..and we're longing for fall

Cool treats are welcome and the ice chips we create
Soothe all of our senses and also  seem to dilate
All of the moisture that is thickening the air..
We feel all of this season; as it shouts everywhere

It's important to be prudent and to slow down our rush
As the full force of summer is sharing her touch
For the burdens upon us seem so much heavier right now
And we must keep our coolness and our serenity somehow

The angels told me you were crying


The angels told me you were crying  they told me this..it's true
I wanted so much to help you but I just didn't know what to do
So I listened inside of my being to the sighings of your heart
And bid the Heavens above to help you... to help you to restart

I can hear the Heavens answering boldly: he's not gone, he's just asleep
At this vigil that you're keeping do not linger and do not weep
For the one  you thought was suffering ..the one you had to let go
Is no longer held here captive.. he's okay and wants you to know

You wanted so badly to be there during those last hours those last days
But one thing after another kept stopping you ..  causing delays
And now you're feeling a bit mournful. like you didn't do your best
Please push this all aside now.. For God knows your heart..please rest

I can hear the Heavens answering boldly: he's not gone..he's just asleep
At this vigil that you're keeping do not linger and do not weep
For the one  you thought was suffering ..the one you had to let go
Is no longer held here captive.. he's okay and wants you to know

There's many questions you still have now many things inside you replay
They're only holding your heart captive keeping you from a better day
So let this all go now let it go.. do not hold onto what could have been
You'll see him again..your  beloved.. where there's no longer pain or sin

I can hear the Heavens answering boldly: he's not gone..he's just asleep
At this vigil that you're keeping do not linger and do not weep
For the one  you thought was suffering ..the one you had to let go
Is no longer held here captive.. he's okay and wants you to know

Our guardians

All around us every day
Invisible guardians along the way
Guard us gently watch us speak
Help us know what we should seek

Angel guardian quiet lights
Know our mornings know our nights
Whisper directions make them clear
In their speaking, God is near

Through their voices through their song
God is speaking right from wrong
Leading softly through their glow
All God's Essence we can know

So we listen and we pray
To these guardians every day
Seeking wisdom seeking light
We are protected .day and night

Try to hear..

Gentle drops of soothing rain
Soak the earth with sweet refrain
Healing ..cooling .. making new
Every droplet sings an: "I love you"

Moistening molecules; falling free..
Fulfilling all they're meant to be:
Cleansing, refreshing, empowering all
One small droplet.. one great call

Nothing magnificent, in our eyes,
Yet each raindrop from the skies:
Sings a lullaby, sure to soothe
God is behind their every move..

Take each droplet and hold it near
You will surely begin to hear
An echo eternal from Heaven above
God is showering us with  pure love

It isn't so hard to see and know
Where each beauty begins to flow
From the heights to earth below
God is everywhere and  loves us so...



Friday, June 21, 2019

Take some moments...

Let your words,  turn into rhyme
Take some moments, take some time...
See what things, you can  truly say:
When written words are the only way.

Slow your breathing, slow your mind:
Silence all the thoughts you find.
All that running and all that rush:
Still them all, and feel God's touch.

Step away from all you're doing
All that unhealthiness, that is brewing
Smell the breezes and feel the wind
Hear your healing ...deep within..

 In yourself, you are complete
 Though you want and though you seek:
 God has made you: made you well:
 Beautiful; wonderful; lovable self..

 Tell the world and let it shine
 We're all a part of the Great Divine
 in His likeness the Lord of all
 Has made each person:  great and small

Beautifulness

Morning shines into my room
Singing sweetly..like perfume;
And she serenades my heart..
Challenging me to a beautiful start

No resistance shall I make
To her suggestions as I wake:
For I know as all can know
Morning brings the Eternal's glow

Rising up I stretch and gaze
At all the wonderfulness of this day
Stars now hidden but not the sun
Clouds are gathering .. day's begun

Creatures romp and wait for me
To toss them out their daily seed
Squirrels, rabbits, cardinals too
Many a bird type..this is true

Off to water the flowering plants
Who invite me into  sacred dance
As they flow without the  breeze
They teach me movements...no one sees

So, it is, each day I will rise
To venture out with open eyes
To see the  wonders that await:
Gifts from God..from Heaven's gait

Heaven

 Heaven is calling out to us and is such a beautiful state
 We cannot even imagine it we will just have to wait
 It's beyond all of our abilities to picture it.. or design
 An image that comes close to it in our frail human mind..

 The angels are preparing us watching us night and day
 So that we will be ready when the Heavens come our way
 Reminding us of our manners and of the actions we should take
 Angels are our guardians and will help us navigate...

 We are only humble travelers and are passing through this land
 Our hearts were made for Heaven and we should surely understand
 That nothing can ever come close to it; or even begin to shine
 As much as the Light of God that calls out to your heart and mine

Death comes too soon

When someone dies, we feel the pain
Of losing that someone who won't remain
It isn't the sorrow of one who's ill
But that which comes when life is still

And so we cry and lament and bid farewell
It tears our hearts ..and we feel like hell
The grief; the sorrow; and the open wound
Reminds us all:  death comes too soon..

We watch the body of our life long friend
Lowered carefully into a man made trench
It rips our souls our hearts all bleed
If only death would spare us the ones we need

And so we cry and lament and bid farewell
It tears our hearts ..and we feel like hell
The grief; the sorrow; and the open wound
Reminds us all:  death comes too soon.

There isn't a sorrow.. that pains more deep,
Than the losing the ones ..we want to keep;
But letting them go is setting them free
And the sorrow we feel is passing you see.

And so we cry and lament and bid farewell
It tears our hearts ..and we feel like hell
The grief; the sorrow; and the open wound
Reminds us all:  death comes too soon.

The memories of laughter and sorrows too
Will invade our hearts we know..it's true
But the vision of the tomorrow we long to see
Will keep us aware that this is all temporary

And so we cry and lament and bid farewell
It tears our hearts ..and we feel like hell
The grief; the sorrow; and the open wound
Reminds us all:  death comes too soon.

Remember to say thanks..

The beautiful day we have today
Is but one gift that comes our way
From the hands of God who loves us so
We should always thank Him: this we know

The sun the moon and the sky above
Are but an imprint of His love
The trees and flowers and moving air
Cry out to us: God's everywhere

A thought, a word, or a simple song
Can please the Lord no matter how long
We must not hold back our heart's refrain
Shout out to all ..our God will rein

Each morning and evening and middle of day
Stop for a moment and quietly say
A word of thanks to He who is
The Creator and Maker and Eternal Bliss


Friday, June 14, 2019

You are the One, Lord

Early morning and all the world's asleep
I can hear them singing: all the angels as they sing
Gentle creatures and all the plant life too
Remind me softly of how much I mean to You

So, I want to thank You and I sing out with all my voice
To You Almighty Who gives Me every reason to rejoice
In all of my moments and  in all of my hours
You are the One, Lord, Who sustains this world of ours

Darkness lingers, and the day hasn't yet begun
And I ponder over it: all that You have done
You created this universe and all the cosmos too
Everything created .. It all belongs to You

So I want to thank You and I sing out with all my voice
To You Almighty Who gives Me every reason to rejoice
In all of my moments and  in all of my hours
You are the One, Lord, Who sustains this world of ours

When daylight enters and morning starts to shine
I see You Greatness warming this heart of mine
In the tiniest seedling and in the grandiose sea
You're speaking Your love Lord and all It's Immensity

So I want thank You and I sing out with all my voice
To You Almighty Who gives Me every reason to rejoice
In all of my moments and  in all of my hours
You are the One, Lord, Who sustains this world of ours

I hope that all will join me and all will come to see
How much love Lord You have spread out so  lavishly
You're in all of our breathing and You're in our day
You're in every moment Lord.. what more is there to say

So I want to thank You and I sing out with all my voice
To You Almighty Who gives Me every reason to rejoice
In all of my moments and  in all of my hours
You are the One, Lord, Who sustains this world of ours

Nothing's wasted

For all who are sorrowing..and feeling some grief
Who have known painful moments without any relief
For all  who have known it: the one darkest day
I say to you:  be strong now .. For Love's on the way

All of your sorrowing.and all of your pain
Are not wasted moments or suffered in vain
Each moment you're given: each second of time
Is something God's using to shape and refine....

The heartaches and troubles that are overtaking you
Are all of them blessings,,, though invisible..it's true
The brokenness and weeping the health scares and falls
Are vehicles God's using; He uses them all..

All of your sorrowing.and all of your pain
Are not wasted moments or suffered in vain
Each moment you're given: each second of time
Is something God's using to shape and refine...

That loneliness and betrayal and inconsiderate word
Seem to destroy you but can't change your worth
Your precious and valuable and uniquely designed
By the Almighty ..Omnipotent ..in Whom you will shine

All of your sorrowing.and all of your pain
Are not wasted moments or suffered in vain
Each moment you're given: each second of time
Is something God's using to shape and refine...

So rest now and know this like ever before
God is all present behind every door
Nothing outrageous or surprisingly good
Will come without carrying all that it should

All of your sorrowing.and all of your pain
Are not wasted moments or suffered in vain
Each moment you're given: each second of time
Is something God's using to shape and refine...

I am your healer

For all those who have not yet heard the voice they need to hear

I have heard you, you know it... in the dark of night
Sighing so deeply...and  about to cry
Though you have said nothing I already know
What is hurting and troubling and sorrowing you  so.

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

Now I am waiting  and wanting you to say
Something to Me ....about your long painful day
I could help you.. if, you wanted.. if you asked Me to..
But I am waiting and waiting: no word from you..

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

Another day has ended..it is now night
You are all broken up:  and full of fright
Your tears, they keep falling: you cannot sleep
I am here and I am waiting: Please talk to Me

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

Now all of your sorrowing is filling up the day
People are noticing it along the way
If only you would stop, now,  and talk to Me
I am here to help you  and set you free..

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

A new day is coming, and breaking again..
Will you keep on, keeping this,  all within?
Your heart is so heavy: it's holding you down
You cannot even see it... the beauty all around

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

You're trying so hard to keep looking away
From all that is hurtful, along your way
But your heart, it is crying and leaking out
All  of  your emotions have begun to shout...

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

I keep on waiting here..just come to Me
I am your healer ..oh can't you see
You've been ignoring Me for so very long
I can be the One who will make you strong

I am your healer I am your all
Waiting here for you to call
I wont ever force you to come to Me
But am the only One who can set you free

Broken can be beautiful

You cannot ever see the struggle in me
My worries.. my fears... my history
I smile and I laugh  but deep inside
So much remains hidden from the world outside

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of

I'm eager to help and lend a hand
To everyone who needs or has a demand
But while I'm helping I can feel it still
I'm broken up and healing and weak in will

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

Your special to me and you are my friend
There's something in you that I can mend
But like my spirit you are fighting to hide
That secret hurt that hangs on inside

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

We are all so human and we are all so hurt
We carry our wounds like some treasured shirt
We won't let them go and we won't let them heal
Because that would mean we'd have to reveal

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

There's a healing and happiness in letting go
And there is a truth behind our "outward show"
The taking off a  the masks that others my see
Will only bring freedom and a ability to be.

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

So be fragile be broken and be your self
Not like some agenda you're hoping to sell
The happiness and wholeness that's deep inside
Is mixed up with the history you're trying to hide

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

Broken is beautiful and the truth sets your free
Whatever you are dear .. let  the world see
There's freedom in revealing and healing you know
Comes from the acknowledgement of what you won't show

I'm all broken up and can still feel pain
There's scars and hurts that still remain
I'm wanting to share them  and let you see
But hold them back.. .this part of me

I want to share this with you

Everywhere I go and in everything I see
God is ever present: reaching out to me
In the gentlest creature.. and in the blooming tree
God is whispering secrets; sharing them with me

So I praise Him when I'm waking and praise Him in the night
I praise for the evening and for the morning light
I thank Him for the weather and I thank Him for the sea
I thank Him for every instance that I find that I might be

Everywhere I go and in everything I see
God is ever present: reaching out to me
In the gentlest creature.. and in the blooming tree
God is whispering secrets; sharing them with me

I sing to Him my sorrows and I sing to Him my joy
I sing to Him in happiness and in times that  I can't avoid
I sing to Him a new song.. and I sing to Him the old
I sing the songs my heart keeps in a constant overflow

Everywhere I go and in everything I see
God is ever present: reaching out to me
In the gentlest creature.. and in the blooming tree
God is whispering secrets; sharing them with me

I want to share this secret  for you are my dearest friend
There is beauty all around and on this you can depend
The voice of God is in you and is everywhere around
God is ever present and is eager to be found

Everywhere I go and in everything I see
God is ever present: reaching out to me
In the gentlest creature.. and in the blooming tree
God is whispering secrets; sharing them with me

I can go on and on about it all...

Oh..Let us sit here in this space
Enveloped by His Amazing Grace
And ponder over the mystery of all
God made this: great and small..

Let us, all,  wonder here awhile
For I'm sure it'll bring a smile
When we think of all He's done
God the Father .. through His Only Son

If you don't know what you should say
Simply sit here and admire the way
God blesses us each and everyone
We can see everything He has done

Do you ever just sit awhile and think
Without any reason or anything
Just soaking it in: everything that's around:
All the beauty .. all the sound??

It takes so very little time
To  make contact with the Great Divine
He's so present and with us all
We have only to open up and call..

I can go on and on about it all
But I don't want to override His call
So I will be silent  now and wait
For God's awesomeness to resonate..

Stop for a moment..

Before the morning can share her shine
There's a song inside this heart of mine;
And I unite it to the earliest song
That starts to sound before the dawn.

I can hear the sparrows as they all sing out
Without the need to boast or shout
Their melody precedes the morning glow
That brightens us all.. with its overflow..

A sudden sense of calm and peace
Overtakes the noisiness inside of me
And silences the murmurs the inner revolt
That cause my heart to fret and jolt..

The breeziest touch..the quietest air
Envelopes my heart.. with a tranquil share
From the places angelic and thrones Divine:
I can feel my soul become a shrine...

If for a moment..a second or two
You can stop and hear the voice in you
You'll hear the One the Eternalness Sublime
Transforming each moment.. each second of time

So listen and ponder and please be still
Let all of the wonderment of eternity fill
Your heart; your soul.. your waking mind
With melodies no person can create or find

Oh the wonderfulness

Whispers of the wind are dancing upon my face
Molecules and atoms are opening up all over the place
Early morning sun is aglow with its healing beams
You look and you look: all is beautiful it always seems

The quietness is only interrupted by the peaceful melody
Chirped out in all freeness from a bird you cannot see
Lightness and all awesomeness is merged inside the dawn
How much wonderfulness is all around us .. I am so deeply drawn

Hush now, try to hear it all the soundings of this day
Riding upon the breezes and echoing along the way
The Eternal and the mortal  are forever in sweet exchange
The more we surrender to Him the more our hearts will change

We cannot begin to explain it all this beautifulness all around
Our eyes are ever seeing it and our ears are ever in its sound
We could go throughout a lifetime and never come to see
That everything we are needing has already been given to you and me..

God desires it

I just love you because I can
Doesn't matter.. if you're woman or man..
In God's eyes, we're all the same
We're all His Children, in Jesus' name..

I don't care how much you weigh:
I'll love you freely, day by day..
God desires it.... wants us all
To love each other: great or small

Time's too short to fuss or fight;
Lets walk together, in God's light:
Helping... loving...and doing good
As we know God's children should

Summer time, Winter, Fall and Spring:
Let's be content to always sing
God is good and God is great
In God's love we all were made..

What's happening to us?

The angels weep, they cry, they plead
For all of us who truly need:
The love of God; His light; His grace;
For violence erupts all over the place

Where is that spirit that Eden knew..
Where love and life so easily grew?
The wrath of Cain at Able's door
Now flows again along earth's floor

It isn't some stranger but ones we know
Who cause this pool of blood to flow
It is outrageous and so unfair
That we see such bloodshed everywhere

Why is it happening..almost, every day:
The sound of gun fire along the way?
Hopeless and helpless some carry a gun
And let out their feelings on everyone..

We are so focused on all that we want
That we fail to see what we should confront
The systems that are failing the hatreds too
If only we'd do what we're suppose to do

The Heavens wouldn't weep or cry or stress
Over all of our world that's become a mess
We would be pleasing instead of not
And we'd love each other as we ought..

Thank you Jesus

Thank You Jesus for this day
Where You speak in quiet way
To my spirit.. to my heart
Teaching me to do my part

Thank You Jesus for Your love
Showered from Your Throne above
In my life..and in my way
I want to thank You every day

Thank You Jesus for each friend
You provide and You do send
How delightful how immense
Is Your love and Providence.

Thank You Jesus for Your Way
Of giving guidance day by day
Through Your Spirit Ligt Divine
Enters into this heart of mine

Thank You Jesus for Your grace
Open to all in every place
Help me guide me speak through me
So Your love is all they see

Let's be friends

You don't have to give me lots; just be a really good friend
One who's there when all are gone; who's with me to the end..
Be for me, like I am for you: so faithful, honest and true
And we will be like the story books say: friends our whole life through

You don't have to be.."all that":like those who brag and boast'
Who seem to measure all their worth by who can have the most
Just be yourself, whatever that is...and that ...I will truly praise
For no one is able to impress me more than one who isn't seeking to amaze....

I'll be for you a true blue friend and you can be for me the same
We'll relish the time we pass together and protect each other's name
The energy we share and the words we speak will spark a raging fire
That spreads into our little world where love is soon to expire...

God is in the waiting

You don't have to decide it all in one day
Take some time out to let God show you the way
Hastiness has never proven to be any blessing for you
God is in the waiting..we all know this to be true

Sometimes you are feeling like you need some solution
To all of  the problems that approach like some intrusion
But this is not your battle or war to be fighting
You have a whole army beside  you: I see an angel sighting..

You don't have to decide it all in one day
Take some time out to let God  show you the way
Hastiness has never proven to be any blessing for you
God is in the waiting..we all know this to be true

Pressure from your peers can be mounting on each side
Some how they are  pushing for you.. to "finally decide"
To the left and to the right and everywhere in between
There are those who promote impatience.. you know what I mean:

You don't have to decide it all in one day
Take some time out to let God  show you the way
Hastiness has never proven to be any blessing for you
God is in the waiting..we all know this to be true

In the moment and the timing that is meant to be right
God will enlighten you with His ever present Light
You don't have to be racing and you don't have to rush
For God is in the right time and not in hurrying too much

You don't have to decide it all in one day
Take some time out to let God  show you the way
Hastiness has never proven to be any blessing for you
God is in the waiting..we all know this to be true
