Blue Sky

Could the sky be more blue?
It’s so clear today
Could the flowers be a more lovely hue?
They are at their peak today

All the greens seem even more so
Verdant boughs with fruit
Plump lemons swing to and fro
Cherries wear a bright red suit

Palm tree’s hands reach up high
As if to praise our King of kings
Thanking Him with each sway and sigh
While a bird to His glory sings

This garden visit lifts my soul
With the palms and birds I praise
Lord Jesus makes me whole
To Him my hands I raise!

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!

Day is Awakened

Moon-waning-gibbous-in-daytime-Aug5_2015SS.jpg

Beauty of that sliver of moon
Soft white against the pre-morning sky
Lovely azure turning clear blue too soon
Echoes of a mourning dove’s cry

Silence that wraps like a soft blanket
Interrupted by a cat’s meow
Sudden breeze, trees make a racket
Day is awakened, night takes a bow.

Sun arises glistening peach gold
Bird chorus erupts in a welcome song
Quiet transformed to noise, loud and bold
Workers pounding; saws whining strong

Still nothing can disturb the peace I feel
Remembering the still awe of sunrise
Such beauty my God reveals
Everyday He creates a new surprise.

Great Great Harvest

harvest sun

I see horse and riders
Sparkling clouds in the air
Golden dust of glory
Angels strong; everywhere

I see a vast army
Hearts open and bare
Marked by their Lord Jesus
Holy, pure and fair

In them nothing hidden
Honor and truth their shield
Lifting high His banner
Reaping His field

Love and kindness pouring forth
Healing dripping from their hands
Moving upon the Wind
Freeing captives from their bands

It’s a day of rejoicing
As the riders circle the earth
To the north, south, east and west
The Presence of God pouring forth

Look up to the Heavens
We’re standing on the edge of time
The Father’s plans culminating
He shouts: The earth is Mine! The earth is Mine!

The earth responds rejoicing
More riders are released
Billions see Jesus’ majesty
And bow down at His feet

It’s the great great harvest
You are His harvest hand
Step out in boldness
He’s healing our land!

Be thankful

praiseGod

In prayer I heard this poem…

Be thankful, My child
To Me you’re beautiful
Let’s talk for awhile
Your life is plentiful

Lift up praises
Let gratitude overflow
I’ve given Graces
Rejoice, don’t feel low

Effusively worship
Thanksgiving burst forth
Dance in My Courtship
Receive My comfort

Stop the complaining
How blessed you are!
Look, stop searching
I’m here; not far!

All you need
Deepest desires
Are found in Me
My love’s fires

Be thankful
Take time
Grateful, be grateful
You’re Mine; all Mine!

Reaching Out

unity_hands

He’s the Son
Radiant One
His Light in me
Love like the sea

Expanding my heart
Tearing fear apart
Setting me free
To love like He

Trusting His lead
From my knees
Learning humility
That pride is futility

Embracing peace
Praying divisions cease
Reaching out
Despite all doubt

I may be scorned
Or, even ignored
But, unity must be;
It’s THE key!

Do you really love Him?
Know prejudice is sin!
God created many colors
All my sisters and brothers

Start with a smile
Talk for awhile

Pink!

pink_sunset_by_evelivesey-d41dvei

It’s a beautiful rose
Color of a kitten’s nose
Precious lips of a babe
Tingling skin after a shave

Big wad of bubble gum
cheeks after too much sun
Glitter on fingernails
Pretty lacy curtain veils

Sky radiant at sunset
Piping on a bassinet
Flamingo on one leg standing
Happy puppy tongue panting

Fuzzy wuzzy circus bear
Cotton candy at a fair
Newly born piglet
Watermelon at a picnic

Little girl hair bows
Tulips planted all in rows
Warm glow of Mom’s cheeks
Soft words that she speaks

Dad’s strong yet gentle hug
Jesus’ heart full of love
Prayers going up to heaven
Knowing that I’m forgiven

Falling in a hammock of grace
This is the blessing place!

Christ Born in our Lives

Nativity-Scene

Such delight
The thought of Him
That Holy night
Love’s glorious sight

His Star shone bright
Victory already won
Darkness became Light
He’s God’s own Son

Two thousands years hence
His light still shines
It can never be quenched
Christ born in our lives

Love one another
As He has loved you
We are sister and brother
Joined in Him and each other

Christmas Blessings,
Rev. Cheryl Birch
