He Smiled

Brilliant path glowing white
Lined with purple flowers
Stunning contrast with the night
The stars were like showers

Is this a dream? I thought
What place am I?
A hand appeared and waved about
Bidding me come nigh Read more…

Heart’s Cry

kneeling_in_prayer

My heart’s cry…

Am I bringing You glory;
What kind of ambassador am I?
Am I telling Your story,
Or, lifting myself up high?

Because I’m filled with Your Spirit
We are united; we’re One.
How can flesh merit
Such favor, grace and love?

How I long to be a sanctuary
That fully reflects You!
Your temple filled with glory;
None of me; all of You.

My soul bought with a price –
Really, I’m that valuable?
For me You gave Your life;
You saw something salvageable.

Oh, the honor to give You honor!
Help me be free of futility –
Walking daily as your daughter,
Always with humility.

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!

Prayer Flight

FlyingPerson

I love the quiet of the morning
And the late late hours of night.
A time with my God I am soaring.
He takes me in prayer to glorious height.

Moments I can see His Kingdom –
Expansive! Magnificent! So Bright!
Gentle touches out of heaven,
Healing my heart, enriching my sight.

No other can compare to Him.
He’s perfect, just, and right.
His beauty makes this world dim.
All around Him glowing light.

I want to fly in prayer all night
But, I am whisked away by sleep
Or, noises put up distracting fight
That shorten my joyous treat.

Still, I know next quiet time,
I have an appointment; kept with delight:
A prayer flight in glory sublime
With my Father God I will unite.

Crystal Sea

CrystalSea

Floating in a crystal sea
My God and me, my God and me!
No worries or cares, I am free.
Wonderful joy in the crystal sea.

Laughing, jumping, splashing in Grace.
I see His face! I see His face!
Glory billows like delicate lace.
Overwhelming love, splashing in Grace.

Quiet awe, hush; my heart aglow
He floods my soul, holiness floods my soul.
His touch vanquishes all pain and woe.
Peace astounding! My heart aglow!

Floating in a crystal sea
My God and me, my God and me.
There is no other, Jesus is the key!
His Heart is my crystal sea.

Smiling up at God

sunshine-wallpaper_1920x1200

Eternity unfolded..
Shock! Awe! Overwhelmed. Fright.
Majestic waves – Golden.
Brilliant splashing Light.

No bottom.
No top.
No end.
No beginning.

Forever rushed by.
Peace flowed; steady River.
Wondered, “Where am I?”
Then I saw the Giver.

Holy!
Glorious!
Purity!
Loveliness!

Collapsed before Him —
My heart stopped beating.
Love’s touch. Life rushed in!
Breath of God – Healing.

Embraced!
Joy!
Tears!
Mercy, no fear!

Not sure from where,
Loud noise sounded.
Suddenly felt my chair.
Sat there — simply astounded.

Garden breeze.
Sunshine.
Home.
Smiling up at God.

Lovely

The glorious scenery of Milford Sound

Lovely…
No, lovelier than that.
Roses, or…
Maybe, delicate lace?

Lavender.
Sweet fragrance.
Sparkling dew upon the grass.
Butterfly.

Cloud wisps;
Perfect white.
No. Lovelier!
Perhaps clear blue sky.

Intricate snowflakes;
A blanket of frosty ice.
Lovelier than even that.
Pristine lake?

Sunset, sunrise.
Close…
Majestic mountains.
Hills emerald green.

Clear eyes of a child;
The smile of a babe.
Closer…
But, not that.

Hard to describe the thought of God.
Holy purity.
His beauty and majesty.
His grace toward me.

His goodness.
His face.
His touch…
Lovely!

Then I Saw Jesus

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
Standing before me with love.

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
He has such eyes of love.

Then I saw Jesus
Bearing my pain
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Weeping for me
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Dressed in pure white
Girded about with gold.

Then I saw Jesus
Radiant with glory
Eyes like flames of fire.

Then I saw Jesus
Seated in Heaven
Clothed in Royal Robes.

Then I saw Jesus
Smiling in heaven
Standing at the Father’s throne.

He bids us come
Into His Presence
He bids us come home.

He bids come home.
Come home.
