Breath of Presence

In Presences breath
Of drawing deep
Adrift beyond
In vision seep

Unto the light
The soul in-folds
In beauty deep
Your grace behold

A witness of
A molding shown
Of love instilled
Where unknown’s known

Of written word
This sight unspoken
The healing of
This body broken

Drifting Deep

Doesn’t matter
What eye sees
Now drifting deep
Inside of me

Where Spirit speaks
And God resides
This place dispels
All of my pride

For truth is seen
And love is known
Where truest self
Here is shown

From this light
Oh, see of grace
To being flow
This heart embrace

Over Water Blue

Memorized by sunset
Over water blue
Colors celebrating
We bid this day adieu

Clouds of drifting gather
Warmed by fading light
Sinking sun subsides
Spurring day’s insight

Time of sweet reflection
Of day of passing by
Still air of deep peace
Soul to gratify

Raising heart with thanks
Of gift of this fine day
Wisdom of perspective
God’s oversight today

Lean into tomorrow
Aware of treasures blessed
Road of heavens guiding
Towards God we progress

Prayer of Preparation

In precious Presence
In shared adoration
Attuning the soul
Prayer of preparation

Soft is the Spirit
Of delicate grace
Soul gladly falls
In welcomed embrace

Angels elated
In hymns echoed song
Soul serenation
Our need to belong

Tender the touch
Time of the treasure
Gracious the gift
Of One beyond measure

Another Prayer

Prayer’s a conversation
A sharing of two hearts
One of broken human
The other, grace imparts

Thought of prayer another
One of no human word
Soul of just receiving
Spirit now be heard

Stilling of the soul
Resting in His love
Surrender be complete
Drift into above

Letting love just love you
Trust within His hold
Giving of the soul
One to let Him mold

Familiar of Unseen

Like a pair of old shoes
Or well-worn blue jeans
I nestle in Your presence
Familiar of unseen

Warmth within Your light
Welcomed is this soul
Love in the embrace
Place of feeling whole

Resting in Your dwelling
Unburden of the load
Nourishment of pausing
Refreshment for the road

Deep be our prayer binding
Alignment of the way
Source of love indwelling
Outpouring it today

Winters Last Snow

We were all set
With thoughts upon Spring
Northern winds blew
A change surprising

Shovel of searching
Scene covered white
Something amiss
Upon blossoms bright

A snow storm in March
Something to know
Comfort in finding
Winters last snow

Winters last breath
Let it melt away
Wisdom of season
Seed for us to pray

Treasure of Horizon

Found within God’s glory
In each gift of new day
Treasure of horizon
A vision He portrays

A glimpse of heavens view
That sin filled cannot bear
Dependent on our Savior
For our soul to prepare

Still we view its beauty
To rejoice in colors bright
To share the joy of heart
We’re called to seek the light

A new day laid before us
Could be our last on earth
Horizons light will come
Found in second birth

Whisper of Jesus

I know your suffering
We share in the cross
I feel your grief
For loved one you lost

Before you a challenge
Fear here today
In darkness of garden
Let us both pray

I see in your heart
The love you desire
Not of this world
Let us seek of the higher

Know in your soul
This message true
I give all of me
As my gift to you
