Rivers Crossing

I rest at rivers crossing
In solemn beauty found
To dwell with You in silence
Your presence now surrounds

Hope in this partaking
Your peace transcends to me
A now of timeless treasure
Of You in me to be

Stillness of the season
Reflects a vision bright
Transfixed within the calling
Of Your path of light

Souls retreat is falling
In love of mercy great
Waves of grace are flowing
So much to contemplate


Voice of Spirit

Voice of Spirit flows
To soul from everywhere
From stilling waters peace
To surprise of path of deer

Morning light on cheek
Warming touch of love
Eagle’s solemn flight
Focus turned above

Falling leaf of red
Path within a breeze
Song that serenades
Putting heart at ease

Colors birth anew
Mist flows in the dawn
Letting go at dusk
Stars calling joy is spawned

See with eyes of soul
Open inner ear
Spirit guide my way
To hear Your calling clear

It Was a Day

It was a day to celebrate
Rejoicing all around
For those with open heart
The joy of God was found

Prayer of humble hearts
Answered by Your grace
Showered by Your majesty
Warmth in Your embrace

The Spirit swirling brightly
Sparkles in the eye
Hearts moved in the drawing
Souls were lifted high

Oh, gracious be our God
Love His only name
Grateful be our souls
His glory we proclaim

Let me be committed
To walk within Your way
Deepen our connection
To shine Your love, I pray

A Masters Stroke

All the leaves are painted
By Creators master stroke
A season of the calling
That our God invokes

Beauty of potential
That branches once concealed
Through moving of His light
A treasure now revealed

A masterpiece of awe
Pause river, now be stilled
Reflects a greater glory
In submission of the will

Eye seek the potential
In souls of path this day
Encourage inner light
To shine within Your way

Eyes of God

Have you seen the eyes of God?
A blessed gift in moment true
An unexpected chance encounter
A time forever changes you

The eyes in which compassion dwells
The gaze that draws you in
The depths of which has no end
The one who knows no sin

He who speaks His word of love
That makes all else fall away
The eyes which love right to the soul
My heart seeks him today

My deepest prayer asked through Your grace
Is that your love will shine through me
That my outside fall away and
May Your gaze through my eyes be

Opening My Eyes

Opening my eyes upon morning light
I am surrounded in Your presence
Pausing in the moment
To find You in the sweet fresh air
And breathing in Your spirit

Let me live for You this day
Let me work for You this day
Let me love for You this day

In the challenges presented
In the souls encountered
In the decisions of the day

Lord, give me wisdom
Lord, give me strength
Lord, fill me with Your love

And be in me

Old Insight

I see within the water
In glimpse of sparkled light
The message that You send
A gift of old insight

A turning back of pages
Remembered through the years
Reflections of the drawings
A picture painted clear

You were always with me
In joy and sorrows both
Hand of wisdom guiding
Encouragement of growth

Memories of beauty
Etched in souls delight
Treasures for the keeping
Binding us so tight

Dog-ear now these pages
In frequent turning to
When fear or trials rise
Let me turn to You
