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...

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

Our Savior's wonderful name..

Life is a mixture of the good times and the bad
We are happy and then at times we are also sad
But one Constant stays forever and ever the same

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

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..



Friday, June 7, 2019

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



Thursday, June 6, 2019

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..



Monday, June 3, 2019

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..


Sunday, June 2, 2019

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


Saturday, June 1, 2019

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

Be still, be still

It's  okay to sit still
And quiet your will
You don't have to run
Or do anything fun

Be still, be still 
Let God touch your will
Inhale and then exhale
God's peace that will prevail

Your projects won't leave
If you seek some reprieve
Just open up and see
What silence can bring

Be still, be still
Let God touch your will
Inhale and then exhale
God's peace will prevail

Your mind's in a race
And it's all over the place
Just calm yourself a bit
In stillness try to sit

Be still, be still
Let God touch your will
Inhale and then exhale
God's peace will prevail

No need to fuss or to fret
You still have time yet
So let yourself be
In a state that's worry free

Be still, be still
Let God touch your will 
Inhale and then exhale: 
God's peace will prevail

Afterwards you'll see
How much happier you'll be
For taking some time
To sit with the Divine

Be still, be still
Let God touch your will 
Inhale and then exhale: 
God's peace will prevail

Pickup the pieces...

 Pickup all of the pieces that have fallen
 I hear a better life for you is calling
 Step out into the future: though it is unknown
 Someone's waiting to help you... you're not alone

 You couldn't believe it... that someone could really care
 After all of those burdens you have known and have had to bare
 Yet truly I can say this.... and,  I am not lying to you...
 There's Someone waiting to make you feel like someone new

 Pickup all of the pieces that have fallen
 I hear a better life for you is calling
 Step out into the future: though it is unknown
 Someone's waiting to help you... you're not alone

 Today, tomorrow and not even the far distant yesterday
 Are not a problem for the new life that is coming your way
 You have to trust me ...God is wanting.. the best for you
 You have, only, to surrender and let His Spirit act in you

 Pickup all of the pieces that have fallen
 I hear a better life for you is calling
 Step out into the future: though it is unknown
 Someone's waiting to help you... you're not alone

 You thought it was over there was no more hope for you
 You've seen the worst and been through what you've been through
 But I tell you there is still a rainbow, that's lingering in your sky
 God is about to change it all if you will let Him try

And we remember them

They fought in combat: went to war
Now,  we will see them here no more..
Giving up all, that they could give away:
They fought for others and made a way

And we remember them ...we do; 
All the trouble that they went through:
Sleepless nights and frigid days;
Homesick feelings and inclement stays..

Bombs and machine guns all around
All but peacefulness they found
Ready to fight for those unknown
We remember those who couldn't come back home

And we remember them ...we do; 
All the trouble that they went through:
Sleepless nights and frigid days;
Homesick feelings and inclement stays..

Year after year in the month of May
We call to mind their selfless way
Of leaving home to fight a war
That would keep the troubles off our shore

And we remember them ...we do; 
All the trouble that they went through:
Sleepless nights and frigid days;
Homesick feelings and inclement stays..s..

If there is a soldier in your mind
Who's memory lingers.. oh try to find
The courage to thank them ...in some small way
For giving up their life... for a better day

And we remember them ...we do; 
All the trouble that they went through:
Sleepless nights and frigid days;
Homesick feelings and inclement stays..

Let your love be real

Open up your eyes and see
The great immense-ness of humanity
It is one big wide open sea
Of people needing you and me

Stop being so selfish my friend
Give without seeking some end
On this you can truly depend
God will give to us..but.. never lend

So, we, as His children most dear
Must live like He's standing so near:
Not shaming Him by what we  say
Or turning our brothers or sisters away

The proof of our faith is so clear
It's found in how we're living right here
Not boxed up inside some Sunday charade
Where God cannot be fooled or played..

Where is God...?

Oh,what is God's church and where can it be
Is it just in a building or can I say it's in me
Must it be for the moment or for every hour of the day
Is church only church..when we gather to pray

Where is God's temple and what does it hold
Is it simply a building like we've always been told
Or is it also a being and a gathering and a time
Where God is ever present with His Presence Divine?

Oh where are the Heavens and where is the One
Who created our eternity and gave us His Son
Is it upward or downward or found after we die
If we ponder sincerely .. we'll know.. .You and I

But God's not in the  buildings and He's not "over there"
He isn't restricted to some long hours of prayer
He's isn't in the temporal and He cannot ever be held
God isn't some Being that rule books can quell

So rethink it .. your thinking..Of God and His Ways
He's different from everything we've learned all our days
We musn't be smugness and think that we're always right
For everyone is welcome in the Good God's Delight

We're trading our birthrights

What are we doing and why do we hate
We are all changing our lives and we're changing our fate
We're wandering away from the love and the grace
That gave us our being and our most sacred space

We're trading our birthrights, our soul's true reward
For something so fleeting..something so wrongly scored
We're  living for the flashy.. the fame... and the light
But can't even come close to the Heavenly delight

The hours of our days are now looking like: Rush
We have all become so busy that we're unable to touch
The quietest of moments or the soft blowing breeze
We whirl and we whirl around a life that deceives

We're trading our birthrights, our soul's true reward
For something so fleeting..something..so wrongly scored
We're living for the flashy.. the fame... and the light
But can't even come close to the Heavenly delight

Once we were all simpler and were so easy to please
We could understand the moments and the sounds of the seas
But now we are all blinded and so unable to hear
The soft sounding voices, that remind us: we're dear..

We're trading our birthrights, our soul's true reward
For something so fleeting..something ..so wrongly scored
We're  living for the flashy.. the fame... and the light
But can't even come close to the Heavenly delight

If even for an hour or for a few moments each day
We could silence our being and silently stay
In the absence of everything that isn't from God
We'd soon find that true happiness is something we've got..

We're trading our birthrights, our soul's true reward
For something so fleeting...something ..so wrongly scored
We're living for the flashy.. the fame... and the light
But can't even come close to the Heavenly delight

We've all been created and so gifted with grace
That we are not lacking at any time or place...
Yet we all keep on searching and unable to find
That the secret to our longing is waiting to unwind

We're trading our birthrights, our soul's true reward
For something so fleeting...something..so wrongly scored
We're  living for the flashy.. the fame... and the light
But can't even come close to the Heavenly delight

Stop the stampede...

Slow down  all your running..oh..why is it you  rush
Don't you know..that you're missing..you're missing so much?
The beauty and serenity and the calm gentle peace
Are awaiting your stillness ..oh give them release..

The clock's always ticking and the days always run
But there's always enough time to get your work done
Despite all of the madness and the whirlwinds you see
You can stop outside of this ratrace and truly be free

Slow down  all your running..oh..why is it you  rush
Don't you know..that you're missing..you're missing so much?
The beauty and serenity and the calm gentle peace
Are awaiting your stillness ..oh give them release..

Everything's a hurry and we're programmed this way
No one likes to be waiting..for it gets in the way
Of progress and power and that great financial stampede
So if you slow down your pulse ..they'll crush you with greed

Slow down  all your running..oh..why is it you  rush
Don't you know..that you're missing..you're missing so much?
The beauty and serenity and the calm gentle peace
Are awaiting your stillness ..oh give them release..

The greatest of giants in this world of ours today
Are those who keep squashing whatever gets in their way
But peace is always lacking and they keep on wanting more
Their power up is insufficient..for  they keep trying to score....

Slow down  all your running..oh..why is it you  rush
Don't you know..that you're missing..you're missing so much?
The beauty and serenity and the calm gentle peace
Are awaiting your stillness ..oh give them release..

With all this before us:  this racing for power.
We need in our persons,  some space and an hour
To replenish our beings: our souls and our minds;
Before the next whirlwind uproots and unwinds..

Slow down  all your running..oh..why is it you  rush
Don't you know..that you're missing..you're missing so much?
The beauty and serenity and the calm gentle peace
Are awaiting your stillness ..oh give them release..

I am moved...

Early morning, bright blue skies
Call to me and catch my eyes
Beautiful in their loveliness
I am moved to pure tearfulness.

Slow the pace and slow the time
Before I start my daily grind
Looking carefully ..seeing all
God has blessed us: great and small

Sounds so peaceful sounds serene
Create the perfect melodic scene
As I hear them I do cry
God is everywhere don't deny

Want to stay here:  in this place,
Where the heart is wrapped in grace;
But,  time's  ticking and I must go
But I'll return here: this I know

Morning morsels for you

It is truly okay if everyone does not agree
With your ideas and  hopes and things that you see
Keep on hoping and dreaming and embrace everywhere
The sounds of the Omnipotent His beauty His prayer

Seek nothing from anyone but be ready to give
A smile and an embrace and a reason to live
For your timing and caring may be just the thing
That someone who's struggling is needing you to bring

Be content with your blessings no matter how small
And be ready to share them with one and with all
For the more that you're willing to extend out your hand
The more you will receive back ..do  you now understand

God cannot be outdone by your generosity or time
His payback is certain and so easy to find
In the moments and morsels that come every day
Or in someone who is kindly and passing your way

Be thankful and  grateful; and be loyal and true
To the One who is providing such blessings for you
For never for a moment or a second or other
Will God ever abandon you .   HE's Father and Mother..

I'm not going to lie...

For all those who never knew 
 a loving mother.

I cannot really say
Anything about this  great day
That hasn't been said
On someone else's thread

So..I'm not going to lie
Or say things some'll deny
So I'll keep my mouth shut
About my childhood bad luck

For the mother I knew
Left me broken and blue
And despite how I tried
My identity ..she  denied

I find myself blocked
By those who are shocked
By the truth that I knew
Till the year "82"

I wish that all could really say
In their truth... in their  way
That this day brings them back
To the good memories .. I lack


Saturday, May 11, 2019

Don't be so proud ....

Don't be afraid to get dirty..some yuck upon your hands
While tending to the flowers..each of their lovely strands
Don't shy away from the tilling or the  care of this earth
For it's beautiful and wonderful to witness a new birth

So... be humble not so proud in the the things that you do
Whether cleaning or preaching feel blessed that it's you
Who is chosen to do this mission.. the high and the low
For God will be pleased with the humility you show...

Boast not,, so very quickly, of your wonderful degree
Don't stand out there and show it for everyone to see
The things that you are doing.. the goals that you have
Let your spirit, be the announcer of everything you plan.
.
So ....be humble not so proud in the the things that you do
Whether cleaning or preaching feel blessed that it's you
Who is chosen to do this mission.. the high and the low
For God will be pleased with the humility you show...

Don't be puffed up..or judgmental or difficult with all.
Dismiss them, your expectations..of the great and the small
Be ready to be dismissive of the faults that you may find
In your neighbor ..your coworker ..or any of humankind

So ....be humble not so proud in the the things that you do
Whether cleaning or preaching feel blessed that it's you
Who is chosen to do this mission...the high and the low
For God will be pleased with the humility you show.

If you will be my friend...

I don't want a great big house and don't desire a grandiose car
I can do without  the sparkly things and the vacations..oh so far
I cannot however go without the sincerity that comes to me
From every person I call my friend for this is all I need

So I'll save you money if you come my way and choose to be my friend
We won't have to visit the shopping malls or look for ways to spend
My happiness is in the simple things.. yes.. It's simple just like me
If you would want to be my friend ..just be yes truly be..

It's not important to me ..your hair..or the color of your sparkly eyes
I don't even mind if you swear a word or have clothing with many dyes
I don't really like the bragging types or the ones who step on all
My friends are all the simple ones who have love for great and small

So I'll save you money if you come my way and choose to be my friend
We won't have to visit the shopping malls or look for ways to spend
My happiness is in the simple things.. yes.. It's simple just like me
If you would want to be my friend ..just be ..yes truly be...

There isn't any place for prejudice or any snobbery over here
I prefer to see each and every one like a sister or brother dear
I cannot handle them:  the  righteous ones.. who feel they are always right
But if you are the one who will be  yourself..I know we can be alright

So I'll save you money if you come my way and choose to be my friend
We won't have to visit the shopping malls or look for ways to spend
My happiness is in the simple things.. yes.. It's simple just like me
If you would want to be my friend ..just be yes truly be.

We can do better; we know it's true

Birds are chirping: they sing their song;
And invite us all to join along
Singing and praising; they show their love
For the God who reigns and shines above

And we and we: what do we do..?
We rush and run the whole day through
We pause for a moment .. a second or two: 
We can do better, we know it's true

The creature-lets romp; they run; they play
So happy to have..yet,  another day
They jump; they scramble..but praise our God
Before they even begin to nod..

And we and we: what do we do..?
We rush and run the whole day through
We pause for a moment .. a second or two: 
We can do better, we know it's true

The trees the flowers the plant-lets too
Are singing forever: an "I love you"
Stretching and reaching: they touch the sky
It holds their Maker...one cannot deny

And we and we: what do we do..?
We rush and run the whole day through
We pause for a moment .. a second or two: 
We can do better, we know it's true

Even the smallest of the creatures run
But take some time to acknowledge..the One
Who gave us life and breath and air
The whole horizon is alive with prayer...

And we and we: what do we do..?
We rush and run the whole day through
We pause for a moment .. a second or two: 
We can do better, we know it's true

Will we be brave and start off each day
With quiet words some word to say..
We're grateful..thankful ..truly blessed
We are so privileged ..like all the rest

And we and we: what do we do..?
We rush and run the whole day through
We pause for a moment .. a second or two: 
We can do better, we know it's true

Headlines that cause the very elements and pray

Blood is flowing where it should not
And children are not behaving as they ought
Tears and sobbing fill the cup
Of the weeping angel ..who carries it  up

Oh Love oh Love where have you disappeared to
Tell me tell me that this is not at all true
That children are killing children along the way
Making headlines that cause the very elements stop and pray

Day after day almost like its suppose to be
Another school is headlining a terrible tragedy
Soaked in blood and brokenness
Angels carry up earth's sorrowing to His Eternalness

Oh Love oh Love where have you disappeared to
Tell me tell me that this is not at all true
That children are killing children along the way
Making headlines that cause the very elements stop and pray

Somewhere in the distance a swing will never swing
Because another child has carried in a weapon like a play thing
And we are left to question and wonder why
We cannot see how this has something to do with you and I..

Oh Love oh Love where have you disappeared to
Tell me tell me that this is not at all true
That children are killing children along the way
Making headlines that cause the very elements stop and pray

Too young to vote or drink or drive
We see a child deciding if another should live or die
Something wrong with all this that we are seeing
Guardian angels with their charges are all fleeing

Oh Love oh Love where have you disappeared to
Tell me tell me that this is not at all true
That children are killing children along the way
Making headlines that cause the very elements stop and pray

The beautiful-ness

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each day and every day
We find along our way

See how the sun does rise
And how the morning bird flies
Hear the flowers as they speak
In the silent sounds so meek

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

The morning grass so green
And the gentle breeze serene
Touch us all so deep within
Encourage us as we all begin..

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

The seasons in their turn
Carry lessons we can learn
Colors smells and sounds so dear
Tell us all that.. God is near

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

In the seconds of each day
So many secrets come our way
Whispers from the world around
Bring us into their sacred sound

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

All the creatures and the trees
All the winds and flowing seas
Everything and everyone
Carry reminders of what God has done

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

So it is right that we should say
Something to the Giver of our day
Humble praise and joyful sound
For  the God Who is all around

Oh the beautiful-ness
Oh the loveliness
Each and day every day
We find along our way

Soon you will know...

Year after year,
I continue to hear..
In the silence and  the air..
God's voice ..that's everywhere

Not seeking to write..
For fame or   limelight:
My spirit will always sing
Of God and His Heavenly spring

While sitting..or not..
I am enlightened a lot,
By wisdom's pure voice
That can silence all noise..

If, I choose now to share
It's because that I care
And know there's one way
To find peace every day

So open up your mind
To the beauty that you find
And soon you will know
That God won't let you go



Friday, May 3, 2019

You can do this

Be quiet and hear it
The voice of the Spirit
He's whispering and enlightening:
Our God is not frightening

A second, a small moment:
To heal what is  broken
In silence and hearing
We can face what we're fearing

Not pompous or bragging
Our souls shouldn't be dragging
For with  Gentleness and loving
Our God gives us all Something..

Today or tomorrow
We can give Him our sorrow
With grace as His  Answer
He can heal all our cancer

Don't fear Him but love Him
Who's Light won't ever grow dim
He's waiting and He's ready
With a support that is steady

So go now and love all
For this is our truest call
Without prejudice or judgement
Be present without rushing

For I am Healer and I am God

Bring your brokenness over to Me,
Let Me fix you.. you will see
All My love and all My grace
Can transform your wounded space

For I am Healer and I am God

When you feel like you're alone
Far from everyone, far from home
I am here to soothe your pain
In My heart you can always stay

For I am Healer and I am God

About every heartbreak so unfair
All is before Me in my sight
Come let Me make the wrong things right

I will carry you to your goal

You're so precious, so dear to Me
In My love you'll always be
Let Me be the One you always trust
I carry Healing in My touch

For I am Healer and I am God
Watching everywhere you trod
I have the manna for your soul
I will carry you to your goal

The Yesterday

Must I continue to keep them in...
All these sufferings deep within
Speaking them out would be taboo
People wouldn't believe them..this is true

So they're all hidden and put away
All  my secrets of yesterday
They are all buried: so deep, so still
But affecting me always as they will

Someday some book will tell it all
Things I had suffered when I was small
Writing it out  and sharing away
Could free me from the yesterday..

Too many have warned me not to speak
I should keep it all quiet..and never leak
The secret stories that could surely be
An unmasking of my family

But how painful and how unfair
Is this burden, I continue to bear
Simply to appease them and cover it all:
The painful memory of being too small..

All that blindness hid from me

Sitting here with my pen in hand
I hope God helps me understand
And gives me light that I might see
All that blindness has hid from me

Now I am seeing .like never before
How much  God has prepared me for
He's given me love..His light..His grace...
Carried me through each difficult space

Now I am listening  and  can hear
God's voice inside me: loud and clear
Speaking of unity, love and peace;
Telling me ..all this hate must cease..

Then as I'm turning the media on
I hear the voice of the evil spawn
Preaching disturbance and unrest
Spewing violence from its chest

Sitting too long in such an air
Can disturb one's thinking..unaware
Being prepped and primed by all the news
One seems to surrender..the right to choose

Our minds turn prisoners of the they
Who flash through media and on us prey
Guilting us into some transformed mind
Where truth is lost and lies define

We'll suffer the tragedy of the wire
That burns out intellect and desire
Brainwashing the masses like a thief
It'll destroy the unity that kept us free

So stop and think of this for awhile
The media is deciding things....without denial
We're trapped inside it and cannot choose
Anything contrary to the nightly news..

Live like you believe

Today everybody is celebrating in a very special way
The Resurrection of Jesus who broke death's eternal day
Conquering all the consequences brought on by our selfish sin
Jesus opened up all the Heavens, so that we could enter in

So now we are all recreated with the precious blood of Christ
Who did not withstand the suffering or the ultimate sacrifice
He suffered it, for a moment so that we could all rise up with Him
Satan can no longer hold us.. we are washed and purified within

The sadness of all those memories, of that painful tortuous death
Could sadden  us for a moment or leave us gasping for  breath
It's almost too much to fathom and it's too  much for us to take in
But for the fact that He is now Risen and no is no longer suffering..

So now we are all recreated with the precious blood of Christ
Who did not withstand the suffering or the ultimate sacrifice
He suffered it, for a moment so that we could all rise up with Him
Satan can no longer hold us.. we are washed and purified within

Live now like those who have learned this and know it to be true
God has given us our Jesus to undo all the sin we were fastened to
We haven't anything more to do now but to live like we all believe
That Jesus is our Resurrection and we have nothing more we need

So now we are all recreated with the precious blood of Christ
Who did not withstand the suffering or the ultimate sacrifice
He suffered it, for a moment so that we could all rise up with Him
Satan can no longer hold us.. we are washed and purified within

God's temple

JOHN 4:23 : There will come a time 
when all will worship in spirit and truth

In the silence, of the morning.. before the sun begins to shine
Angel choirs are softly singing ..each of us are God's own shrine
No need for steeples.. or cathedrals;  in our hearts we can always hear
All the sermons and the melodies that make each of us a temple dear

While the sun is slowly rising and the molecules of this new day
Form a stream, of breezy whispers: we are readied for the way
Like an altar, set up gently;  with the vessels we can find
All our hearts are prepped and dressed up for the Eternal Lord Divine

All our equal and invited into this feast  that is always here
Come now quickly, without  worry; morning bids us all draw near:
To the altar.. of our being... to this church, that holds such care:
Walls are absent.. collections banished..we are one, for God is fair

Close your eyes, inside  this temple...hear God speak through everything:
Through the flowers, birds and plantlets..through the rivers and the spring
God is present, touching hearts and making moments that burst with love
Stop your bickering and competing and help each other rise above


Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Early morning dawn

I soak in every moment of the early evolving dawn
Her melodies: they entice me; to each one I am drawn
Like raindrops in the desert, the songs of this brand new day
Carry me throughout the morning and nourish me along the way

I cannot capture them completely or put them all into a  verse:
The many marvelous treasures that fall from our Father's purse
For they are so numerous and inviting; so mystical and Divine
That they create for us a banquet, that feeds your heart and mine

So, I stop,now, every morning; and I'm opening up my heart
To receive the many blessings as each day is about to start
Flowing through all the elements the creatures and the breeze
God is blessing me  always..even if nobody ever sees..

We are rescued from that curse...

I don't really think.. that we need to recall it again and again:
That painful, shameful death, that Jesus chose to lift our sin ;
But, rather, we should  rejoice in the fact that He's here, today
And has conquered our sin and death and made for us a way

We are rescued from that curse we are delivered from all that shame
Our Lord has conquered death and we can have confidence in His Name
So we will call on Him today and we will also call on  Him tomorrow
For Jesus, Lord and Savior ..is our God  who removes all sorrow

The replaying of His death and the recalling of all those stripes
Can only make us hurt and sorrow over such a painful price
He's no longer on that Cross and He is no longer in that place
That bore the world's rejection of God's unrelenting grace...

We are rescued from that curse we are delivered from all that shame
Our Lord has conquered death and we can have confidence in His Name
So we will call on Him today and we will also call on  Him tomorrow
For Jesus, Lord and Savior ..is our God  who removes all sorrow

Somehow, we fill that reliving all the wrong that we have ever done
Is somehow pleasing to our God and  His only begotten  Son
So,  we have done this every year and  forever we will continue to do
Because we can't imagine an Easter without some guilt trip in me and you

We are rescued from that curse we are delivered from all that shame
Our Lord has conquered death and we can have confidence in His Name
So we will call on Him today and we will also call on  Him tomorrow
For Jesus, Lord and Savior ..is our God  who removes all sorrow

Our God wants us all to be happy and not to return to those awful ways
He has only asked of us ... for our love and our endless praise
So ...what of all this big displaying  of the shame that made Him die..?
God does not find any enjoyment in this reminder from you and I

We are rescued from that curse we are delivered from all that shame
Our Lord has conquered death and we can have confidence in His Name
So we will call on Him today and we will also call on  Him tomorrow
For Jesus, Lord and Savior ..is our God  who removes all sorrow


God has rescued all of us and wants us to live like those who are alive
HE has rescued us from all those things that wouldn't let us live and thrive
WE are all a new creation: and a brand new people in His grace:
Let us start living and loving each other and stop hanging onto disgrace

We are rescued from that curse we are delivered from all that shame
Our Lord has conquered death and we can have confidence in His Name
So we will call on Him today and we will also call on  Him tomorrow
For Jesus, Lord and Savior ..is our God  who removes all sorrow

All around me...

Little robin, standing near..
Approaches me without a fear.
Something beautiful: so Divine..
Makes the creatures, friends of mine...

Like a soldier, standing tall: 
Pine trees reach the Lord of all.
Singing, swaying, in the breeze:
Quiet songs emerge from trees...

Geese above me, noisily fly..
Like a battalion, in the sky.
Coming back from states below
You can hear them, wherever they go.

Morning's sunlight: gentle rays;
Touch my heart in quiet ways.
Speaking wisdom, speaking health
Golden streams bring spiritual wealth.

Every morning, every night;
God is giving me new sight
Precious memories, visions too: 
All around me says: "I love you"

Spring Storm

Thunder lightning pouring rain
Spring is here and shouts again
Shaking, shuttering, softening  earth
All this brings the earth rebirth

Tweeting singing in the breeze
Melodies rise and bless the trees
Birds with color: drab or bright
Sing despite the stormy night..

Waiting watching all around
There is rumor of a second round
Elements creatures all the plants
Feel the storm inside their dance



Sunday, April 7, 2019

Don't delay

Birds are chirping beautifully
Singing songs for you and me
Praising God and sharing grace
Melodies sound from place to place

The morning sun and flowing breeze
Touch the earth, the sky, the trees
I can see them ...and I can feel
All the beauties, that they reveal

Quietly sitting saying naught
I can hear what day has brought
Whispering softly smiling deep
All creation's mine to keep

Rise up early... don't delay;
See the beauty of this day
So much wonder... so much peace
Waits to share their sweet release

God is still God

God is still God in the sunshine and rain
In moments of laughter ..and in moments of pain
He's present and listening and loving us all
God is still God of the great and the small

God is still Creator and is creating even now:
The rainbows.. the sunsets ..the land that we plow
Without a need for petitions or seeking replies;
God is still Creator of the earth and the skies

God is still our Father and we're still, His  own
Despite all our grumblings and ingratitude we've shown
He's giving and caring and is supplying our needs
God is still our Father and is  ever trying to please..

God is still our Answer..our Everything ...our All
We have only, but,  one lifetime: to answer His call
Let us be diligent and  eager and  people of Light
For God is still our Answer  and will lead us to do right

All around

Little violets in the ground
Speaking beauty without sound..
Reaching Heavenward shining bright
in their presence we delight

Busy ant-lets one by one
Moving marching ..getting it done
Ever dilgent always there
God's cool cleaners everywhere

Budding plant-lets.. stretching high
Taking nourishment from the sky
Returning sustenance: all  we need
God is providing through plant and seed

Carefree creatures romp and play
They're delightful..I must say
Jumping, poking, prodding around
They share freely what they've found...

Morning sunshine nightly moon
Each will come but not too soon
One starts bringing day its light
The other brightens up the night.

If we ponder it: all  around
So much beauty could be found
Creatures, plant-lets; moon and sun
Mountains ,,oceans.. everyone..

You're okay

Unhealed moments in your mind
Hold you hostage: in a bind
Frozen solid in one space
God is waiting with His grace

Memories flashing one by one
Hard to forget it what was done
You are praying sighing deep
God will take it..get some sleep

Scars still linger.... always will
But God's grace can surely heal
Take some moments stop and pray
God will wash the hurts away...

Use those memories give them voice
Don't be bitter ..but rejoice
You've been rescued you're okay
God has made the darkness..day



Thursday, March 28, 2019

What if we could love?

What if everyone would love
Like the Creator, God above
All would glow and all would shine
With the Eternalness of Love Divine

What if there wasn't ever any hate
And we would strive to eliminate
All the prejudices ..war and fear
What if love took over our atmosphere?

What if today..we could only see
The love that binds us: you and me
It would be so wonderful; yes, indeed
If we could replace it: all our greed

What if we could really say we love
Like the good and selfless God above
We wouldn't be spiteful or proceed
Without bringing something for those in need

What if those reading this would  agree
To live in peace and  in  harmony
Wouldn't it be wonderful.. for one ..for all
If Love would guide us: the great and small

When times are tough

Things will get better; just, you wait and see
God is still God ..even in the midst of tragedy
He will help you and guide you and give you His love
Nothing is too burdensome for the good God above

Remember and consider:  How blessed you really are
He's present, ever present: like a bright shining star..
He's loving and caring and ever ready to give
Our God is your best friend for as long as you live

When schedules seem toggled and you want to fret and cry
Just remember who is the Keeper of all the earth and sky
Nothing, oh nothing, could ever come to be
Without His Divine Presence protecting you and me..

Remember and consider:  How blessed you really are
He's present, ever present: like a bright shining star..
He's loving and caring and ever ready to give
Our God is your best friend for as long as you live

At times you may feel helpless like nothing's going right
Your eyes are all swollen from crying day and night
Just know this within you that God is everywhere
And He's ready, ever ready to take you into His care...

Remember and consider:  How blessed you really are
He's present, ever present: like a bright shining star..
He's loving and caring and ever ready to give
Our God is your best friend for as long as you live

So call Him and talk to Him and give Him everything
He'll listen and love you and help your heart to sing
There's nothing oh nothing you really need to fear
When God is your best friend your Rescuer is ever near

Remember and consider:  How blessed you really are
He's present, ever present: like a bright shining star..
He's loving and caring and ever ready to give
Our God is your best friend for as long as you live

Never far away

What is it ..you're thinking .. and what's on your mind?
How long have you been worrying .. been in this bind?
Troubles are overwhelming you ..your sleep seems to flee
Tell me if you are willing: ..what demons you see?

I'm here for you always and never far away...
You have, only, to call Me; at nighttime or day..
I'll send you an angel..a helper ..  a guide:
Don't fear being open..reveal what's inside..

The mornings and evenings have held you in check..
You seem so uneasy; like, you've been in a wreck.
Let me be for you, your Calmness, your Peacefulness too
Come to Me and trust Me and I'll be All for you

I'm here for you always and never far away...
You have, only, to call Me; at nighttime or day..
I'll send you an angel..a helper ..  a guide:
Don't fear being open..reveal what's inside

So much has been happening: everywhere... every day.
Sometimes, you have wondered:  the path you should take..
The answer is so simple and is as easy as can be
I am the right Pathway.. the answer is Me....

I'm here for you always and never far away...
You have, only, to call Me; at nighttime or day..
I'll send you an angel..a helper ..  a guide:
Don't fear being open..reveal what's inside

Streams of grace

Chilly breezes nip my face..
While I feel God's loving grace
Birds are jumping squirrels too
Morning brings the: "I love you"

Frosty breaths show in the air
Spring is coming; but, beware
That the mornings..pure and bright
Still have winter in their bite

Tiny creatures look at me
Wondering when they'll see the seed
From the bowl I gently  pour
All my love and so much more..

Like.. an Eden.. all I can see
Is all creation welcoming me
Speaking mysteries soft and sweet
This is gift and this is treat

We are so lucky and so loved
By the good God, who reigns above
Who despite His Eternal-ness
Loves to join us in our human-ness..

Before anything else..

Before you open up your phone,and before you write a thing
Look into you heart, dear one, and welcome coming spring
Hear the birds; the blowing breeze; the sky: so bright and blue
Even flowers can bring some love and speak a word or two...

You have all the day to work and run; and even the time to talk
So why not spend the  time at dawn, and take  a little walk?
Go out into the blowing breeze and let it gently touch your face
You will find   the waking world..is so filled with amazing grace...

It won't take long before cars will zoom and bring some dreadful noise
So, take some time, this early morn and enjoy life's silent voice
Listen intently and soak it in: all  the beautifulness of this day
Early dawn will bring you much; if you, just,  let it have some sway..

Remember to love..

In each of the moments of every single day
God has sent you His angels to brighten your  way
You were never abandoned, and your were never alone.
You are in God's family .and this you should own

In all of the good times and in all of the bad
God's angels will remind you ..of all that you have had
Everything you're needing and all that is good:
Our God has given freely: like a good Father should

So count now your blessing and remember them all
Let nothing escape you ..no matter how small
In all of that you're doing and all that you say
Remember God's angels are with you each day

Do nothing that is hateful and remember to love
God wants us to be always...His gifts from above
Like angels on missions with everything to give
We are His ambassadors for as long as we live....

God speaks healing


All those words that go unspoken
From your heart: so bruised and broken
Angels see them..bring them here
For you are loved and you are dear...

From those hands of life line beings
I receive  your hurts and feelings
In My providence; and in my love
I'll transform them all above..

Along your way and in your spirit
I will speak My healing in it
You are chosen; and you will hear
Peace, salvation; never fear...

Times were hurtful; made you cry
You felt hopeless..but couldn't try
For the many made you feel
All your hurting wasn't real...

Now you're rescued... You are mine
I will keep you from that vine
That infused your heart with fear
Never more that doubt you'll hear

Come here daily rest awhile
I will soothe you: make you smile
No more worrying; no more hate
Let My Spirit navigate...

For I am Healer

All those tears that keep falling are, each one, known to Me
I have heard you in the nighttime, as you were pleading helplessly
Though you didn't even know it; all those sorrows were all grace
If you let Me into those moments, all My miracles can  take place

For I am Healer and a Helper and a Friend to everyone,
There is nothing that has happened  that can not  be undone
You have only to reach out to Me to call upon My name
I will be there in an instant and lift you from your shame

While you were out there weeping over all the things you lost
I saw you as you struggled and as your hopes were tossed
I sent out all my angels to carry you into light
You were never really far from My careful loving sight

For I am Healer and a Helper and a Friend to everyone,
There is nothing that has happened  that can not  be undone
You have only to reach out to Me to call upon My name
I will be there in an instant and lift you from your shame

Though you felt like you were losing and all had left your side
You were never really far from My loving healing tide..
I wouldn't let you linger for too long inside that mess
No I came into your darkness and brought you all your happiness..

For I am Healer and a Helper and a Friend to everyone,
There is nothing that has happened  that can not  be undone
You have only to reach out to Me to call upon My name
I will be there in an instant and lift you from your shame

Rejected

Many years have passed by now and you choose to behave
Like someone who has sentenced me to a far distant cave
Not reaching out or connecting, or showing you care:
Somehow you keep claiming: "you're a person of prayer"?

I cannot understand it.. and it has turned me away
From all sorts of religions and the people who claim,
To be followers of Jesus or the lovers of Light
For if this is the Pathway.. I feel it's not right

For the children of Heaven and the doers of good
Would embrace every person like the Eternal One would
They wouldn't be  petty or  bullying or smug
Every person would be welcomed and receive a pure hug..

We have, only, to look...

The darkness of night is still lingering around
While  morning is coming with her beautiful sound
Breaking through  shadows and sounding through trees
The dawn comes with melodies that ride in the breeze

While people still shuffle through hallways and rooms
Creatures are all hopping through the beautiful blooms
Bird-lets and squirrel-lets and bug-lets galore:
The universe is awakening and is moving her floor

Time to be seeing and  searching and  know..
That God is all present and is sharing His glow.
We have only to be looking,  to be probing, and to see
That everything is a gift for both you and for me

Today, tomorrow, and ever after.....

From my heart, I will sing it: all the love I have for you
For You have created and made it present. everything it is true
The sky,  the sea, the earth, the air: and all that eye can see
You have fashioned, called it out.. and willed it all to be

So I thank You Lord this morning; I thank You now, for it all:
Every moment, every hour, for every thing I can recall
For You are loving and deserving and are The One most High
Today, tomorrow and ever after: with gratitude I'll cry..

When, in evening, after working: I take some time and pause;
I will recall it, all inside me Your caring-ness..without flaws
Throughout the morning.. until my sleeping and even after I retire
You are present and ever watching: lest without You:  I should expire

So I thank You Lord this morning; I thank You now,for it all:
Every moment, every hour, for every thing I can recall
For You are loving and deserving and are The One most High
Today, tomorrow and ever after: with gratitude I'll cry.

In those moments, trying moments, when all the world seems bleak
I will hurry up and hasten to Your Throne, with love to speak
For all my worries .. all my sorrows .. all my doubts whatever they may be
Are ever present in Your wisdom: You will help and deliver me..

So I thank You Lord this morning; I thank You now,for it all:
Every moment, every hour, for every thing I can recall
For You are loving and deserving and are The One most High
Today, tomorrow and ever after: with gratitude I'll cry..

No one would bother to help him..

A man was laying all broken on the street one busy day
Someone had left him beaten and quickly sped away
Many had passed him by; but there was no one to pay him heed
Wasn't  there anybody out there to help him in his need

No one would bother to help him, though many passed him by
A preacher and a lawyer and even a rich man didn't try
A stranger from another country..an illegal immigrant
Reached down to lift him up from his awful predicament.

To the local hospital the samaritan carried him away
Without another thought he gave his credential so he could pay
Not knowing how much it would be or how long that he'd be there
He left with these instructions .. bill my card for all his care

No one would bother to help him, though many passed him by
A preacher and a lawyer and even a rich man didn't try
A stranger from another country..an illegal immigrant
Reached down to lift him up from his awful predicament.

So many more would have left him like the others from that day
Had not this kindly stranger taken a detour along his way
The colorful panorama or the wealthiness of the town..
Couldn't change the bleak reminder: of how much unkindness could be found

No one would bother to help him, though many passed him by
A preacher and a lawyer and even a rich man didn't try
A stranger from another country..an illegal immigrant
Reached down to lift him up from his awful predicament.

No need to rush

Melodies sound inside my heart
They're always there; and won't depart
Like rain, that's falling: soft and sweet
The musical moments give me retreat

While echoes of the morning,run
My heart is synced to everyone:
Creatures; beings; plant-lets too:
There is a peace for all it's true

The morning sun..the winding breeze
Touch heart and soul and all the trees
Whispering; rushing; hardly there:
The unseen wind is everywhere

Before you rush or run away
Breathe in the air of this new day
It is refreshing, pure and sweet
Let Heaven kiss you with this treat

Don't let anyone mock this morning stride..
Take in the universe with noble pride;
And it will carry you throughout the day:
Refresh and lift you, along the way
