Sunshine

lavendersunshine-543421


Garden chair
Table
Tea
Cat napping.

Warm sun
Healing
Restoring
Lovely blanket.

Like a scarf
Falls cross my neck
Cozy
Comforting.

Head to toe
Wrapped
Held
Aglow.

Shoulders drenched
Getting hot, cool breeze
Soothing rays
Joy.

Today reminds me
Reminds me of my God
His love
His love is like the sun.

Thanksgiving to Him

Thanksgiving-Brownscombe

Family gathering
Dining with friends
Thanksgiving beckons
Luscious treats and breads.

Table adorned
Finest plates and linen
Fragrant pumpkin and nutmeg
Turkey roasting in the oven.

Smiles and laughter
Deep in conversation
An argument or two
Football on television.

But why do we gather?
Is it only tradition,
A day off of work,
What is the reason?

The goodness of God
All His provision
Bowed heads and blessing
He is the reason.

I Am…

There is no situation I cannot handle today.
No emotional problem is too hard for Me.
The issue is really what you always say.
Proclaim My promises and wonderful answers you will see!

Selfless Place

godsgrace

How do I get out of my own way?
God has promised me so much.
I believe everything He has to say.
Yet, His amazing power I have yet to touch.

Salvation, healing, and deliverance flow.
My faith is high and His mercy is sure.
Still, there is a place that I long to go
Where I’ve stepped aside and His Presence is pure.

Take me, O Lord, to that selfless place.
Whatever it takes, I want to get there.
Total reliance on your love and grace
So that people know You’re alive and care!

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.

Refreshing Garden Reflection

1206101444

Branches perform ballet then hip-hop.
Trees raucously clap their hands.
Glorious wonders never stop.
God’s grace blessing my land.

Angelic hosts of scattered clouds
Drift quietly across the blue.
Peppers sway in scarlet shrouds
Against a deep green hue.

Fall flowers waltz in windy rhythm.
Shrubs put on a burgundy coat.
Birds sing a spirited anthem.
Bees buzzing a delightful note.

His Spirit reaches out to mine
As I delight in a brand new day.
Refreshing touch from heaven’s wine
Joins the sun’s bright ray.

My heart is bursting; overflow!
Such joyful all consuming sensation.
My Lord, my God, You are Beautiful!
Reflected in Your creation.

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.
