Dance on Golden Flowers

goldenflowers

Received this wonderful poem message from my God as I prayed and worshiped Him. May it bless you as much as it blessed me!

Walk in the green of the grass with Me
Dance on golden flowers
Look out at the spacious blue sea
Be with Me for hours and hours

My heart calls to the depth of your person
Into your soul I see
Come! Let us talk and reason
I have so much to share with thee

Observe! See the beauty of creation
Take time, share the moment with Me
I long for your quiet attention
And time when I’m all you need.

Stop for some rest and peace
Slow down so I can refresh you
Drink deeply from oceans of grace
Receive my gifts that renew you

Yes, dance on and on with Me
Never ever let Me go
How I love to bless you; see!
How I intensely love you so!

Breeze tossing my hair to and fro
Warm then just a bit cool
Clouds part forsaking their gray tint
Sun brilliant; makes me squint

Crash! A wave breaks suddenly
Roaring tidal pool spinning violently
Quiet surprise then Crash again
Spray cold drops splatter my skin

Rooster crows a robust cry
Hen scratches and pecks nearby
Cooing mourning doves a pair
Iguana bright green runs past my chair

Voices muffled by the surf
Scream! A child splashing playing nurf
Palms playfully dance and sway
Ocean, endless blue; perfect day!

Thankful, praising God aloud
Creation loveliness all around
Sunset beauty such joy and peace
Praying: Lord, bless this place

Garden Encounter

sparrows

Went outside for a quiet time
Met by crows loud caw
Squawking loud, jays chime
Laying down the law

Mockingbirds whistle and tweet
Causes a sparrow choir
Determined, I take my seat
To the chitter of hummingbird fliers

Ahh! A moment of silence
Observing lovely blooms
Refreshed by greenery thick and dense
A car backfire booms

Serenade of motorcycle roars
More birds upset; crazy sound
Neighbor hollers slamming doors
I hold my place with chaos around

When suddenly peace pours down
All sounds fade away
He comes with a love drenched crown
My God is close today

Garden glows with joy abundant
Colors praise His name
I rest in His arms triumphant
So very grateful that He came!

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…

No Matter

Today as I prayed this poem flooded my heart:

Jesuswalkwater

Feeling great?
Jesus celebrates with you!
Feeling bad?
Jesus encourages you!

In the midst of hard times?
Jesus makes a way for you!
Sickness got you down?
Jesus has healing for you!

Nervous and upset?
Jesus has peace for you!
Worried and afraid?
Jesus is a shield for you!

Made bad choices?
Jesus forgives you!
Don’t know what to do?
Jesus has wisdom for you!

Walking in the shadow of death?
Jesus has eternal life for you!
Grieving over loss?
Jesus comforts you!

Feel like your sinking?
Jesus grabs a hold of you!
Sadness at your gate?
Jesus has joy for you!

No matter the need
Jesus provides for you!
No matter who you are,
Jesus loves and died for you!

City Garden

th

Not often is there city quietness
Really wonderful peace
No neighbor’s craziness
No noisy equipment blowing leaves

Traffic just a steady hum
No children’s laughs or screams
No music loud with drums
Or, skateboard kids in jeans

I hear the call of a crow
Another echoes back
Three sparrows sit in a row
Sweet song of birds no lack

City garden full of shade
Flowers in full bloom
Replete with butterfly parade
And bees that dart and zoom

The green always pleases me
The trees are a delight
But quiet adds a joyful glee
To all the lovely sight

Stillness of heart and mind
Gentle breeze tosses my hair
The presence of my God I find
Sitting in my garden chair.

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

Whiffs of Beauty

OrangeBlossomFractal_AZDude

What is that lovely scent,
Blossoms of lemon or orange tree?
No, it’s much more than that;
Enticing, comforting, sweet, free!

The air around me is filled.
It wraps me like a shawl.
Glorious whiffs of beauty
Nothing’s like it at all.

God’s presence in my garden;
The smell of holy incense.
So close I feel I can touch Him
Like I’m resting on His chest.

Oh, what an amazing experience,
To breathe His wondrous perfume.
Joy and Peace overwhelm me;
His Love like drenching dew.

The grass suddenly greener.
The flowers electric hues.
The trees glowing life radiant.
I’m caught in His grandeur.

Too soon the fragrance fades
And the sense of His presence departs.
Now, a normal garden day.
Still, Jesus’ touch lingers in my heart.

Rolling Hill

Shock of Purple

Rolling hill
Jagged rocks
Emerald green
Sandy spots

Shock of purple
Flowers abounding
Electric yellow
Orange surrounding

Dark green shadows
Mossy ledges
Blackened boulders
Scruffy hedges

Wind sculpted oaks
Branches waving
Meadow in distance
Beauty amazing

Creation of God
Such joy to behold
Peace floods my soul
More precious than gold
