New Day Dawn

Though life is challenging right now, our God is still blessing us with the beauty of His creation. Today as I woke up I marveled at the wonders of His sunshine invading my room and wrote this poem. Praying that it blesses you and reminds you to thank God for every gift He gives us to help us through this difficult time worldwide…

Light then shadows
Blinking and sparkles
Shapes wall dancing
Sunshine playing

Warmth invades
Peeking through shades
Morning has come
New day dawn

Lifted my eyes
Clear blue skies
What beautiful view
Lord God, thank you!

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!

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

A Perfect Spring Day

12933039_10153343771756036_4329313370125283501_n

Azaleas full bloom
Geraniums wind-dance
Bees soar and zoom
Small trees seem to prance

Spring winds so gusty
Send kites to flight
Squeaking gate, old, rusty
Bangs the fence in a fight

Sun warms my face
Waltzing pines put on a show
Two jays in a race
Cross sky-blue chasing a crow

Flowers everywhere
A colorful rainbow
Trees green beyond compare
I’m happy; heart aglow

Everything’s brand new
What looked dead, now alive
Butterfly visits on cue
A day to celebrate, not just survive

God loves us in every way
He gives us lovely gifts
Like a perfect Spring day
As our weary hearts He lifts

My Morning Bliss

IMG_20150312_103847_100

Whispering morning
Quiet, lovely.
Barely sounding,
Wind blows softly.

Sparrow twitters
Sweet melody.
Dawn glitters
Sunlight splendidly.

Mind calm
Heart at rest.
Reading a Psalm
Receiving God’s best.

Joy overflow
Strength renewed.
The world aglow
His glory revealed.

Praying aloud.
Heavenly kiss.
Presence of God.

My morning bliss!

Secluded Place

sandy-beach-north coast

Oceanside walk
Rushing sound
Waves talk
Crashing all around

Sea birds shouting
Insects buzz
Sandpipers scouting
Gulls fuss

Secluded place
All alone
Suddenly peaceful
Watching white sea foam

Mind clears
Troubles depart
God overwhelms
Joyful heart

Singing praises
Fall to the sand
Hands lift praises
Simply can’t stand

Worship resounding
With nature’s symphony
Love abounding
Such glory I see

Retreat

IMG_20140902_150211_011

Rough-hewn, wind carved
Gnarly bark,no pattern alike
Leaning a bit to the east
Giant pines stand guard

Water slapping at their feet
Reflecting their majestic boughs
Strewn rock adorns the shore
Jagged cliff an eagle’s seat

So blue the water and sky!
How deep the hue of both
One clear, no clouds at all
The other ripples, boats go by.

Sunshine warms the sandy beach
Making it so golden
Boulders blackened with time
Sit proudly past my reach

What a lovely place to be
Warm sun, cool breeze
Surrounded by God’s creation
His glory vast and free

My sense of Him ignited
My heart overwhelmed
My mind finally calm
His arms around me tightened

Leaning against His chest
So quiet, so much love
This earth just disappears
This must be His Holy rest!
