A Pocket of Silence

In a pocket of silence
Of this moment of time
To be in Your Presence
With an offer of mine

A gifting of love
To contemplate
To ocean eternal
Of Your love so great

A broken sinner
With will to concede
Showered in blessings
Of all that I need

A drop of the grateful
So dependent to be
A blessing of grace
Here dwell in me

Gift Beyond Claiming

You are My beloved
How I love you dear
Gift beyond all measure
Claim it now right here

Peace my Son offers
Seen with the souls’ eyes
One beyond this world
Claim your eternal prize

Joy found in each moment
A simple little choice
To be within My presence
Claim it and rejoice

Peace and love and joy
Each moment every day
Not just to receive
But blessed to give away

Voice of God Calling

To pray, first of all
Of listening, begun
To the voice of God calling
You’re, His beloved one

A place of solitude
Of truth which God tells me
That of who I am
Of sacred space to be

Then to take a sentence
Word of scripture, true
Claim the voice of truth
“Jesus, I trust in You”

Let the truth of
Your belovedness start
Descend from your head
And into your heart

When with other souls
Somehow you can be
With them from that place
Of divinity

And throughout the day
As fears come flowing through
Word in soul repeating
“Jesus, I trust in You”

My Light

Found in every dawning
With colors blessed anew
Offer of the calling
My light is seeking you

When the dark is falling
Stars come into view
Fear not my beloved
My light shines over you

Known within our praying
The Spirit shining through
Lamp to feet of guiding
My light is leading you

Deep within of dwelling
Message of the true
The flame of ever glowing
My light is loving you

Offer of accepting
My will, Your light pursue
Joy in the reflection
To shine the light of You

A Sitting of Silence

A sitting of silence
A purpose of prayer
Of settling soul
Of dwelling so dear

Surrounding of Spirit
Awareness of air
Breath of the breathing
Of holiness here

Lord gently loving
Divinity dwells
Gratitude growing
Sacredness swells

A blessing beyond
Gifted in going
The Spirit to share
With soul of the showing

Our Gardener

In the garden of soul
We must concede
It’s not up to me
A gardener, need

To nourish the soil
For growth to proceed
A practice of pruning
And clearing the weeds

Dependent on water
Receiving the light
Upheaval of weeding
Trust through the plights

With fruit of the harvest
It’s not about me
But one of the sharing
His grace joyfully

Prayer for the Hands

A prayer for the hands
Of offer impart
Tools of reflection
Which flows from the heart

May they be open
Ones to receive
A welcome embrace
Of bonding achieve

May they be helpful
Of burdens to lift
Be quick to give
Of a needed gift

May they be blessed
Compassionate, kind
With touch of the gentle
The lonely to find

May they be holy
Together in prayer
Grateful for blessings
Of One that we share

Given Hands

Lift up our hands
A blessing to pray
To offer to You
For work or for play

With gifts that we’re given
For business or neighbor
In giving our best
Hands offered for labor

With a heart of compassion
Of faith we profess
A touch to encourage
Hands offered to bless

When a soul has fallen
Quick to offer a gift
With hug or embrace
Hands offered to lift

In coming together
To gather this day
Both souls and the Spirit
Hands offered to pray

Throughout our life
We hope that they’ll be
The hands of you, Lord

Blessed on Fathers’ Day

Sitting in the sunset
Of this Fathers’ day
Reflecting on the blessings
That have come my way

From those gone before me
Some are here no more
Their sacrifice for me
Love that they out pour

Souls that now surround me
I hope they truly know
That they are my joy
And how I love them so

Oh, what did I do?
To receive this blessed fate
To know that God is good
From these blessings great

A reflection of the light
That my Lord does share
From the source of One
Love beyond compare

So grateful is my heart
May my soul confess
That I live a life
In which I’m truly blessed

A Grace of Transforming

Presence of fullness
One that is real
Deep is the treasure
Of love that’s revealed

Offer of being
Of welcoming in
A blessing of soul
To dwell here within

Absorbing, dissolving
Consuming me
A grace of transforming
Of One love to be

Love satiating
A warming divine
A light for the lantern
Of the soul to shine
