Precious God and Treasure

Lord God my only Hope
My Strength and Healer
No other can help
This weary soul of mine

Worn out from life’s trials
I sit before you now
Broken, hurting, grieving, exhausted
Knowing You alone have the answer

My meager praise is Yours
What little I have is Yours
Who I am is all Yours
What I do is Yours

I’m done; I can’t go on
If You don’t inspire me
I quit it all – Give You all
Whether You give back or not

You’re all I want
I need you more than ever
Help me see You, hear You, feel You
My precious God and Treasure

He IS Christmas

Red, lovely red, everywhere
Complimented by green, silver and gold
The colors of the Christ Child fair
His destiny displayed; His story told

One so innocent, a sweet delight
Easy to love and embrace
The silver of His star shines bright
Golden One, God’s only Son of grace

Refreshing green, His healing joy
He walked the earth in holiness
Gladly being His Father’s envoy
Giving His all, strength and kindness

Red, amazing red so powerful
His blood shed for us
Sacrifice magnificent and wonderful
Worship Him! For HE IS Christmas!

We Give Thanks

It’s not thanksgiving for turkey
Or, mountains of delicious food
Nor is it thanks for football games,
Family, friends, or that which is good

The gratefulness expressed this day
Belongs One special place
He’s the truth, life, and the way
God full of glory and grace!

~*~

May your Thanksgiving be filled to overflowing with the love, peace and presence of God! In Jesus Name I pray, AMEN!

Season of Heavenly Treasure

Angry leaves fight the wind
Many lose the battle
Ripped from their branch
They sail, swirl, and rattle

Nonetheless, there’s great beauty
As they gather on the ground
Colorful array of shapes
Rusty orange, yellow and brown

The trees sway back and forth
Trying to hold onto to summer
But, autumn has taken hold
Green gives way to umber

All nature offers God resplendent glory
Boldly reflecting His pleasure
Golden transformation everywhere
Season of heavenly treasure

How Wide?

Rio_de_Janeiro,_Christ_the_Redeemer.jpg

As I was praying I heard these wonderful words pour into my heart:

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Eternity cannot hold it
It flows freely
every day
Step into My arms
I adore you!
Let Me show you My
Loving way

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Look to the cross and
See the sacrifice I made
My blood a gift
So we could be ONE.
I Promise My love
Will never fade.

My love for you
Will never ever fade.
I love you
I really really do!

Golden Rain

Such a beautiful face
Drenched with forgiving grace
Eyes dripping with love
Compassion holds me like a glove

A vision beyond this earth
He’s of magnificent worth
Gentle yet bold; full of power
He’s my shelter and strong tower

All creation bows in reverence
Perfect holiness is His countenance
Wonders of mercy pour out to me
I’m surrounded by a peace-filled sea

How I long to stay here all day
But Life interrupts in a jolting way
Tomorrow I’ll join Him once again
In glorious moments of golden rain

Sunshine Winked

IMG_20180413_171607489

His sunshine winked at me
I smiled back, delighted
Clear skies bathed me in a blue sea
Soft wind danced around excited

Brilliant magenta flowers laugh
Their leaves gently clap with joy
Butterfly took a daisy nap
Kitty chased a dried leaf “toy”

Bees dart, distant bells bong
My eyes find a lady bug gem
Unseen birds sing a happy song
Chimes try to join with them

In my garden I find such peace
Its surprises are never ending
God’s creation is always a feast
His presence and love abounding!

Waves of Grace

IMG_20141112_155208_760

Within my heart resides One who is brave
He’s stronger than my selfish way
Whenever my flesh begins to fail
His Wind suddenly fills my sail

Nothing I’ve done deserves such favor
Still He pours out love from His laver
To sooth my shattered broken soul
Waves of grace wash and make me whole

Though I thought I did everything wrong
He fills my heart with joyous song
The painful test was not one of perfection
But a revelation of His affection!

Beautiful Heart

BeautifulHeart

Wholly turned away from self
A beautiful heart is at rest
No concern for getting more stuff
Or, what others think is best

All desire flows from above
Good gifts from the Father of Lights
Glowing with unconditional love
Never demanding its rights

Joy abounds in a beautiful heart
Even when dealing with sadness
The welfare of others always a part
Serving and sacrificing with gladness

Words of encouragement and exhortation
Continually found on its lips
Doing all things, no complaint or hesitation
Kindness, peace and grace its quips

Yes, a beautiful heart comes from God
Nothing we can do ourselves, ever
Except love the One who is His Son
Jesus, our Savior and treasure!
