How Wide?

Rio_de_Janeiro,_Christ_the_Redeemer.jpg

As I was praying I heard these wonderful words pour into my heart:

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Eternity cannot hold it
It flows freely
every day
Step into My arms
I adore you!
Let Me show you My
Loving way

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Look to the cross and
See the sacrifice I made
My blood a gift
So we could be ONE.
I Promise My love
Will never fade.

My love for you
Will never ever fade.
I love you
I really really do!

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!

Glorious Red

Red-Flowers-Among-Green-Grass

Flowers among leafy green
Lips on a commercial screen
Color of a fire truck
Crest on a beautiful duck

Collar on a running dog
Homing light in a fog
Tomato hanging on a vine
Striped candy at Christmas time.

Our flag waving in the breeze
Hankie catching a sneeze
A joggers running shorts
Irritated; out of sorts

Hair ribbon on a tiny girl
Delicious cherry ice cream swirl
Cover of a favorite book
Bobber above a fishing hook

Painted skies at setting sun
Dragon fly on the run
Blush on a woman’s cheek
Jewels and treasures that we seek

Eyes that cried too many tears
Anger heavily laced with fears
Intensity of emotion
Overflowing with devotion

Passion of my Beloved’s heart
His Love eternally pouring out
Amazing color of His sacrifice
Paves my road to paradise

Red, glorious, full of life
Washed away my sin and strife
No color holds the joys of salvation
Like the red of Jesus’ crucifixion.

The Only Way

glorious_cross

Amazing sacrifice.
Laid down His life.
Shed all His blood.
Forgiveness flood.

Died for me;
Set me free.
Died for you.
Set you free too.

Without His blood
No healing flood
No hope in sin
Only dark din.

Arose from death.
Broke grave’s abyss.
Shattered Hell’s hold.
Gained glorious gold.

Ripped heaven’s veil.
Love never fails.
Father’s mercy abounds.
Grace simply astounds.

Ascended on a cloud.
Rejoicing, bold, loud.
At Father’s right side.
Ready to bless His Bride.

Poured out fervent fire
Holy Spirit power.
Transformed hearts and minds.
His JOY now resounds

I’m heaven-bound.
Glory is my gown.
How ’bout you?
Is He your Savior too?
