In Depth of Day

I take a moment, in depth of day
To turn to You in rest
Refreshing soul, love of God
Returning to Your nest

Turning inwards, towards Your light
I find You waiting there
Dwelling freely, draw me in
Lifting heart in prayer

Hurry not, linger now
Burdens drift away
Adjustment made, path reset
Continue in My way

Wisdom From the Vine

Into time of quiet,
The place where I find You
In the stillness of beyond
Above becomes the view

Rest now the voices
Screaming of things to do
Past the prayers of needing
Offering a moment or two

Dwelling into nothingness
Allowing light to shine
Receiving unknown graces
Wisdom from the vine

Emotions will not feel them
Faith will fill the cup
Trust will hear the words of soul
Hope will lift me up

Blessed within the mystery
Time beyond the known
By the goodness of our God
I‟ll know the soul has grown

Wading in the Way

Trash is overflowing
So many things to do
Mood has taken over
Oh Lord, please see me through

Take me to our place
Of receiving You in me
Pausing in the moment
A time for us to be

Unseen be the focus
Chase all doubts away
Scales fall from my eyes
Wading in the way

Light shines on the water
Ripples in the flow
Rock secured so deeply
Love I long to know

Blessed be this treasure
That perfect be my friend
Peace found in the answer
Holy Spirit which You send

Treasure Known

Put away the paper
Cast away the pen
Drift away your thoughts
Come into my den

Look to path of light
Calming is the flow
There is something dear
That I want you to know

A time for rest of soul
The worldly dispose of
A dwelling of our being
A showering in love

Sit upon the grass
Head on bark of tree
Close eyes in warming light
Soak in the love of me

Rest in now of silence
Focus of one thing
I cherish you so dearly
Know the love I bring

Letting go of worries
Drifting into me
In emptiness of being
My treasure you will see


Engrain in me Your truth
The wisdom that you share
Bind to Word consumed
May view be not impaired

That forever is Your love
For that is who You are
No matter where I travel
You are not afar

You dwell within my Spirit
Seal upon my soul
That my dwelling be
In you, be my goal

Your forgiveness is eternal
A price paid by Your son
Forgiveness blessed completely
Whatever I have done

That this world is fallen
My home is found in You
Challenges will come
And You will see me through

We human are all broken
Judgment separates the one
Binding through Gods love
Is how the battles won

Riches for the tempting
Distractions of the dust
Security is only found
In the One I trust

Endurance is a key
Committed to the goal
In dying of the me
Life shines in the soul

The answer’s found in You
Heaven shared in love
Your light eternal shines
Focus on above

Trust Me

A time of rest designed
Body now reclines
End of day in closing
Restoring tired mind

Falling now asleep
Into dark of night
In hands of Savoir keep
My soul rest in His sight

Within the deep of mind
Stir worries of the day
Arising to the surface
Rest now goes astray

Tossing and the turning
Fear now overcomes
Drowning in the swirl
Pounding as a drum

Arising drifts a thought
A message from the deep
Wisdom from our Lord
Knowledge I must keep

“Trust Me” are His words
I am in control
Others now subside
Heart finds its console

Words by which to live
Greater is the view
Imbed them right behind
The knowledge, I love You

Swallows Prayer

Prayer flows with the swallows
Uplifting flight of grace
Free from earths devices
Soul drifts beyond this place

Connecting to above
To souls in love with You
Entwined in movement blessed
To height beyond our view

Song notes we’re not constrained
To ways we only know
Threads of light are spun
Through Spirit grace will show

Let prayer be lifted high
Past what we expect
Will released in flight
That our great God perfects


Looking out through our eyes
Each a different view
Perspective seen through our wounds
Vision each askew

One that comes with mirrors
For them all to see
The beauty that I am
What will they think of me?

Another doom and gloom
Darkness blocks the light
The worst is yet to come
Another day to fight

Judgment fills the view
People into bins
Separate the best
The only one I’m in

Another of a child
Wonder, awe, anew
Trusting in the Father
Joy accepting You


Knowledge of Way

Berries of green, fruit of the blossom
One day your beauty will shine
Through seasons of time from bitter to sweet
Plan of the blessed divine

In depths of the winter when leaves are long gone
Fruit dress of red will remain
Food for the starved in barren of cold
Nourishment sweet it contains

If only you knew through heat and through storm
Your purpose is part of the plan
Light shines the truth so bask in the glow
Enduring the best that one can

So cling to the branch and rest without fear
Rejoicing in gift of this day
Gift cheer to your friends, dwelling within
Bless them in this knowledge of way

Of The Breeze

Perhaps I do not know
Which things are best for me
The rushing of my duties
The things that I must see

Priority of way
The driving of my time
Cause me to cast aside
The beauty of sublime

Nourishment of soul
Found in a moment’s pause
A glimpse of precious light
Voice to which heart draws

So let me be attentive
Direction of the breeze
Let gift not pass me by
An opportunity to seize

Commitment let me make
To keeper of my soul
Willingness of being
To give to You control
