Beauty That We See

We just do not want
To merely see beauty
Though God knows even
That is enough bounty

We want something else
In words, can hardly be
In one to be united
With beauty that we see

To pass into it
In ourselves to receive
To bathe, become part of
In hope to us believe

Beauty of the drawing
Consuming of the Son
That of the unseen
Becoming of the One

We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words — to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

Comparing Light

The light that shines
Upon the sea
Of diamonds joy
Of such beauty

Or better still
On mountains peak
Brilliant colors
Of sunset seek

Reflection of
A hope of tear
A grace that saved
A soul of fear

All light is bright
Shone from above
You can’t compare
Same’s true of love

A Need of Desire

A need we desire
To be loved, so true
Great is Gods’ desire
To bless His love to you

Can we pause this day?
To let our purpose be
The binding of this love
Our first priority

A prayer of receiving
Or found in scriptures’ Word
A seed of nature’s beauty
In silence, whisper heard

To His will of releasing
Let us come to know
In giving love away
Allows His love to grow

A soul of loves Spirit
A light of such beauty
Mercy, peace and joy
Fruits for all to see

Before Our God

With a thread of faith
On knees to befall
Mask of removing
Before our God of all

Where nothing is hidden
As sins are disclosed
Seen as I am
Completely exposed

A gaze into soul
With Lord face to face
Love is outpoured
Encounter of grace

Joy overflowing
Our treasure of finding
Acceptance complete
Of intimate binding

Dawning of Calling

A dawning of calling, in silence its song
Respond with our binding, in prayer join along

Stirring within, let the soul hear it
A movement this day, the call of the Spirit

Come now the chosen, the ones of the light
A call to arms, of purpose so bright

An offer before us, to share now our gift
The bringing of heaven, of this world to lift

Above is our view, display of beauty
Colors of blending, of miracles, see

Joy of arising, to know in our soul
In building His kingdom, we each share a role

Sunrise is our flag, raised for us all
With charge of the Spirit and love is our call

New Passion

To be fully alive
A question to fashion
Of great importance
What is our passion?

Drives our decisions
For all to see
Consumer of time
Leaves our legacy

From where does it come?
Seen on TV?
Making me cool
Or our family

Let’s reconsider
Appealing of higher
Let us pray for
A seed of desire

Found in the binding
A purpose fulfilling
The Passion of Christ
Let our soul be willing

Days Light

Light of the dawning
So gently it lay
Speaks all is anew
A drawing to pray

Bright is the shining
Light of mid-day
Of clarity’s vision
Guiding the way

As sun is setting
With gift to relay
A blessing of mercy
Love it conveys

Store in the soul
Your light here to stay
In darkness of night
May our faith never sway
