Light of You

Eye captured by light
In vision of the way
Time of Spirit blessed
Soul led to forestay

Beauty of reflection
On snow lights icy bank
Glistening on wave
Grace of which soul thanks

Light is cast on all
In angles beauty found
God’s love wide and true
Inner warming profound

Ahead in path today
May soul see light of You
Shining through my brother
A blessed holy view


Mornings Mind

Mornings mind is racing
Bones are in a rush
Glancing towards horizon
Spirit whispers, hush

Resting on the field
A palette of pure white
A turning of the will
Reflection of Your light

Prayer be of the moment
A letting go of all
In giving of dependence
In loving arms I fall

Peace found in the stilling
Our God of wonder be
Love in the surrounding
A smile’s blessed on me

Continue on your way
I’ll be by your side
When glance will turn to me
Together we’ll reside


Let’s just take a moment
To receive a message clear
Seen within creation
Calling everywhere

From the peak of mountain
Arriving in the sea
Flowing is the river
Through forest wandering

View from up above
In marching clouds of white
Wonders of great shapes
Draw the whole earths sight

Vastness of the ocean
Ever flowing waves
Rise in fall in tides
Something our soul craves

Wind of touching cheek
Sways the giant oak
Leaves sing in the breeze
Song to heart it soaks

Great as nature be
Beyond a work of art
The unseen flows the treasure
Of God’s love to our heart

Field of White

I sit behind my window
In view of field of white
Reflecting in the scene
Casting of Your light

Blessed be this moment
One that’s set aside
A letting go of daily
Through grace in You abide

A warming of the soul
Highlight of my day
Wasting now of time
Entrance of doorway

Drifting into now
Begins what’s seen with eyes
Setting free the soul
To speak without disguise

Creation of amazing
So intricate Your plan
How beautiful Your garden
Bond of God and man

God beyond our knowing
Let soul dwell in above
The only, need to know
Your everlasting love


Sloping into season
Of Lenten purple hues
To reassess the journey
Growing close to You

Offered up a menu
Of spiritual delight
Nourishment for soul
Gifts of new insight

Tentative the step
Of which my foot is placed
Tracks with in the snow
No clear path is traced

Adore now here this moment
That God dwells patiently
Rejoice in what is offered
Ahead eternity

Time to buckle down
Commit to offered grace
Pausing in the light
Warm shines on the face

Nothing in the doing
Love draws new the way
Embark upon the journey
Rejoice in grace today

A Cleaning

Sitting in this time of you
A journey of step small
Desire draws me closer
A whisper of Your call

A mirror true of shining
Stares me in the face
Choices hidden showing
The unneeded I embrace

Cleaning out the closet
Of junk within my soul
An opening of freedom
A surrender of control

I find inside some stumbling blocks
The things of which I fear
Will I give them to my Lord?
Or don’t I trust Him here

Avoidance drives these prayers of fear
That things will go my way
Could I change these thoughts of mine?
To see what God would say?

What if I failed in tasks today?
Lost my job or health?
Would I wallow in despair?
Or would You be my wealth

Let words repeat when worries rise
That fear is not my King
With my soul entrust to You
My Savior do I cling

Our mighty God, with loving grace
Heaven has He made
His precious Son walks with us
Speaking, “Do not be afraid”

Adoration Now

Oh Lord, my practice be
Adoration here
Blessing in this moment
For You are everywhere

Exercise of heart
To practice through my day
Attitude awaken
Love born in this way

Grateful for this time
Live right here and now
Seeker of the beauty
Found through eyes of thou

Adoring of the moment
Draws the fear away
To cherish blessings sent
A living way to pray

A fragrance sent of joy
An inner peace is found
Inviting of divine
Together love abounds
