Rise Above

Rise Above

Rise up...Beautiful One. See! The winter is past...the rains are almost over. Buds are appearing, the Season of Song has come. Rise up...my Beautiful One. We've seen the scourging, stripes and spearing. We wait in silence. Blood poured out, sacrifice for sin. Mine. I wait. Head bowed to the east before the Rising Sun, the [...]

Taste of Spring

Taste of Spring

Breathe in, drink your fill of sweet air. Draw in color like shades of beautiful character expressing God's own. What traits of His do you see reflected now in your own mind? Look, the blossoms bud once again, though once dead, now bloom, violets and glories of the morning. Trees mighty, their strength towering above [...]

Love Letter

Little dove, my dearest one, you thought your life was almost done. But when you saw that you might sink, you fluffed your feathers and chirped, “Wait! Think! What about those things God has called my wings...?"

Song of the Afflicted

Song of the Afflicted

When the world's weight rests on top the weary wounded what have they to do? Climb higher on the wire up towards heaven's view. With words they weep for the afflicted, for they know affliction. And in their pain, songs of mercy sing. So you there; lost in the maze and craze, darkness above and [...]

A Study of Light

A Study of Light

Moods of water float with ease on ice, broken. Let yours too. Water is drawn to rocky shores near naked sand. So am I. What is Love that it should shine through the dark night of my soul? What is darkness that it should reveal the Light of your love? Through fogs of depression You [...]

Waiting

Waiting

Drenched in water too weighty to rise, or balancing on a precipice above the current of the deep, out of reach, a prayer goes unanswered.   Elements floating, stirring, swirling into perfect harmony. One move too soon and it may sink. So we wait.   Buoyant in stillness, peaceful in movement. Pure focus. Flowing clarity [...]

The Light of One

The Light of One

The tree limbs and branches sprawl and spread across the floating balloon of a sun. Light pushes through, taking center stage with brilliance. Place your candle on the table. Reveal its flickering flame. Even the wick's embers, smoldering, glow. Its beauty, but a breath, like a life, may help light the way for another. In [...]

Focus

Focus

The day's begun, I bow my head, and whisper words beneath the sun. Bring power and majesty to this earth so within all life there is rebirth. I will not doubt Your Presence, still; but lift my eyes up to the hill. Send down Your grace and teach me love. Keep our eyes focused on [...]

He Loadeth Me?

He Loadeth Me?

I wasn’t quite awake when I read the words, “He loadeth me, O blessed thought”. And I immediately reacted. I know! Why are you loading me down like this, God? I squinted then and realized the word I read was leadeth, not loadeth. Right… It's the end of week and I'm looking to be led [...]
