Joy is His Game

Treeinlightandgloom

Been feeling down for days
Self pity thick and black
Sadness creeping by says
All you’ll ever have is lack

But in me dwells a Champion
Jesus is His name
I’m asking a second opinion
Found that JOY is His game

No matter life’s circumstance
There’s Hope found in Christ
Who I am is not happenstance
My future is strong and Bright!

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!

Wonders of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

Love for one another
Time with friends and family
Hugging sister and brother
Remembering all who are needy

Wonders of Thanksgiving Day
Touches deep our soul
Generosity its mainstay
With thanks to God alone Read more…

In His Hands

Humility
God, then me
All I am
Submitted to Him
All I have
In His hands

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

Mary’s Joy

christmas-nativity-painting

A Light
So bright!
Touched earth
Golden worth

Just a babe
Laying in hay
Destiny profound
Angels all around

Shepherd’s astounded
Goodwill abounded
Peace reigned
Holiness gained

Mary’s joy
Precious boy
Magi’s gifts
Gold, myrrh, frankincense

Born to save
His all He gave
Changed the world
Love unfurled

This night glorious
Honors His righteousness
Rejoicing we celebrate
He opened Heaven’s gate!

At the Lake

Water slapping
Bird chirping
Whistle, twitter
Boat dock sitter

Children laughing
Soft breeze blowing
Bobbers afloat
Loud motorboat

Tall pines waving
Butterflies playing
Lots of rocks
Wet socks

Wild flowers bloom
Bees zoom
Giant ants scouting
Someone shouting

Sky so blue
Gorgeous view
Rustic mountains
River fountains

Flies riot
Suddenly quiet
I feel free
Sun warms me

Heart at peace
Sweet release
God’s presence near
His voice I hear

Garden Watch

IMG_20130827_132653_363

Beautiful sea of blue, blue sky;
Not a cloud in sight.
Legion of aging trees standing by.
Crisscross pattern of leafy shadows fight.

My toes are warmed by the golden sun
While I lazily rest in the shade.
Noisy birds on the run.
Swarm of tiny flies invade.

Wave of my hand sends the flies away.
Peace returns to my shade.
Dry leaves dance in crazy disarray
Under a bush of dark green and jade.

Lavender buds bouncing; a butterfly delight.
Pool water sparkling reflecting the sun.
Dragon fly soars to dizzying height-
Two more join in zig zagging fun.

Never a boring moment on my Garden Watch.
Each day I’m thoroughly entertained.
From my heart springs up “How great thou art!”
My joy in God’s creation can’t be contained!

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.
