Living Here Above

We are souls in waiting
For the coming of the Lord
Of hope within our hearts
All of one accord

What’s to be, what’s of now
Connection of the two
Spirit of Your grace divine
In bonding me and You

Heaven of eternal
Love of the perfect One
Touches here on earth
Lived out by Your own Son

The one for which we hope
Waits within us now
Drawing soul towards love
A movement one allows

A treasure offered to us
One of Gods pure grace
A choice of the forever
Of our eternal dwelling place

So Christ move within us
Surrendering to love
Fulfillment of Your calling
In living here above

A Covering

A pasture of pure white
Is laid in morning clear
Creation stills its living
To partake in what’s appeared

Beauty of the changing
No longer death of brown
Hope in lights reflecting
Gift that’s been laid down

Renewal of a question
Of mercy that I need
A truth that has been offered
If my will concedes

A visual symbolic
Won by a field of blood
Touched by breath of Spirit
A longing, bonding floods

In guilt of my drab sin
Of winters cold embrace
Oh Jesus bless me pure
Your covering of grace

Desire for Your mercy
Give life to frozen heart
Robe divine in blessing
My only hope impart

Let joy be in the scene
Hope arise in You
You’ve covered all in love
Making all things new

Filling the Hole

Empty is the hole
That I long to fill
I try with many things
Desire remains still

Travel full of beauty
Islands paradise
Drinks of fruity flavors
Still will not suffice

Money now of plenty
Buying beyond needs
Food of luscious tasting
Longing cannot feed

Family that’s a blessing
Comfort of the bond
Still the soul is knowing
Something of beyond

Happy are these moments
But fade in passing time
Unique is the desire
You’ve placed in soul of mine

A turn to Your embrace
Surrender in the fall
Hunger satisfied
In loves drawing call

Now all these things enjoy
Seen through Your eye of love
You are all I need
Connected to above

Peaceful Covering

I find a home in dawning
Before the world awakes
The spoken Word is silence
In feast the soul partakes

Souls at rest are sleeping
Before the calling light
Peace is overwhelming
A watchman in the night

Colors on horizon
Sing to fading star
Breath of air is virgin
Drifts in from the afar

Let me dwell within you
A covering of grace
In power of Your presence
My pride now pray abase

Hush of earthen blanket
The Spirit hovering
Permeate the soul
In peaceful covering

Breathe in Spirit

Let the mind now rest
In this holy place
Cast all thoughts aside
Be in Your embrace

Focus on our breathing
Of new life in me
Gift of precious cleansing
Allowing us to be

Breathing in Your love
Acceptance breathing out
Turning into You
Expelling all my doubt

Breathing in Your mercy
Breathing out my sin
Drawing in of Savior
Forgiveness dwell within

Breathing in Your blessing
Gratefulness arise
Praise flow from the lips
Humility arrive

New life in the breathing
Without You only death
Within each passing moment
Spirit be my breath

Peaceful Covering

I find a home in dawning
Before the world awakes
The spoken Word is silence
In feast the soul partakes

Souls at rest are sleeping
Before the calling light
Peace is overwhelming
A watchman in the night

Colors on horizon
Sing to fading star
Breath of air is virgin
Drifts in from the afar

Let me dwell within you
A covering of grace
In power of Your presence
My pride now pray abase

Hush of earthen blanket
The Spirit hovering
Permeate the soul
In peaceful covering

A Crossing of Time

Reflections of past year
Thoughts of year to be
A crossing of man’s time
A sifting through debris

Treasure of fresh memories
Of which the heart is fond
Gratefulness of blessings
New friendships that were spawned

Avoidance of dark corners
Of acts I wished I’d done
Selfishness and greed
Forgiveness anyone?

Who knows what lays ahead?
Fear and hope arise
Unknown intertwined
Whose consul will advise?

The path of all mankind
Questions of the deep
Collect them in a basket
Place them at Lord’s feet

Blessings of divine
Of mercy that’s unbound
Comfort in His arms
Hope in Him is found

A relationship of now
With the perfect One
With treasures of heaven
The New Year begun!
