A Taste of Beyond

Before I awake
Mind halfway there
A birth of first thought
Adrift into prayer

Body asleep
Yet fully aware
I am somewhere else
Yet fully here

Encompassed in light
Like surrounding air
One in Your being
No word of fear

A beautiful Oneness
All a part be
Breath is the Spirit
Love is the key

A taste of beyond
Which mind can’t construe
A glimpse of dimension
There’s much more of You

Eyes now awaken
Mind takes control
Cling to this vision
In light of the soul

Now You

Oh, my dear beloved
How I miss you so
But it brings me joy
In heaven, now you know

Your simple acts of love
The ripples didn’t know
In His love complete
Now you see how love flows

Things that made no sense
You trusted in His plan
In God’s providence
Now you understand

In your prayers you heard
A whisper from above
Now your silence speaks
In Spirits voice of love

Soaking, Molding, Shining

A sponge that’s hard and dry
Parched that it has been
Let living water flow
Soaking it all in

A solid lump of clay
Knows not what it can be
Let Your hand of love
Mold it tenderly

That of wax and wick
A simple candle light
Ignite with Spirits flow
Shining Your light bright

A soul of the needing
Presence flowing through
Soaking, molding, shining
Bless me, all of You!

Found My Lover

In the dawning stillness
As the light appears
And I found my lover
In the beauty shared

Within adoration
Of a silent prayer
And I found my lover
One of Presence here

Though I didn’t see
Until our eyes did meet
And I found my lover
Begging in the street

In a love so pure
Perhaps I’ll grow to see
When I find my lover
In my enemy

Within This Light

For here is where
Our Savior, meet
Within this light
His love complete

A gift for free
Just to believe
His treasure shared
Us to receive

Peace and hope
Mercy, grace
Eternal life
Of love, embrace

Our soul to shine
Our joy abounds
Good news to share
Our Saviors found!

Me and My Lover

Me and my lover
Each dawning we meet
An intimate sharing
Our feelings complete

With a heart of compassion
No judgment to see
Encouraging always
The best that’s of me

A love that is true
Even if I stop trying
The thought of my lover
Sends endorphins flying

Rejoicing in joy’s
Laughter abounds
When I am confused
Wisdom is found

When sorrow finds me
Comforting fears
A warm embrace
And drying my tears

When my hearts longing
Throughout the day
My God and my lover
Appears when I pray

A Few Questions

Can you hurry a sunrise?
Flower faster to grow
Each morning, a practice
Of patience to show

Can I have it all now?
Your wisdom bestow
Through grace of Your giving
It takes a lifetime to know

How great is your love
I want to comprehend
Every moment each day
No eternity end

Why can’t I hear you
In silence be heard
For your love of all
Is One beyond words

Great Gift Above

God knows our challenge
Of worry and fear
He blesses the sky
His comfort to share

Always above us
A wondrous gift
Outpouring of light
Our Spirit to lift

Infinity’s view
In a prayer to wander
Of the beyond
His great love to ponder

In sunrise and sunset
Of masterpiece paint
In peace of the night
Of stars’ sparkle faint

This blessing to cherish
Throughout our day
To cast view above
Soul arising to pray

God’s Love Found Here

Help make a daily practice
A present moment prayer
Pausing and to ask
How is God love found here?

Starting with a sunrise
A new beginning, see
A path of love is set
What Gods’ prepared for me

Souls that we encounter
Gods’ purpose we believe
Perhaps a gift of sharing
Or one to receive

When sins of our choosing
Falling to our knee
Grateful for forgiveness
The grace of Gods’ mercy

When we are discouraged
It’s difficult to cope
We turn the scriptures page
Receive the Word of hope

Even when life’s boring
Nothing here to do
Ignite the joy within
To know God’s loving you

Love Complete

Word of life transforming
A blessing to bestow
God loves us completely
Let our soul truly know

He is always loving
Our actions good or bad
No matter how we’re feeling
If happy or we’re sad

When whispers start arising
Let our soul decry
Whatever we may doubt
That is just a lie

We are precious to Him
Our soul He does adore
It’s true, in every moment
He couldn’t love us more

Let this be our joy
We are a child of His
He can never stop
‘Cause love is what God is
