Content of Moment

In content of moment
A beautiful “be”
For it is as you wish
Blessed perfectly

Welcoming all
A prayer here to start
Receiving as “is”
For I am a part

Encompassed in being
In heaven abscond
Fully in “here”
Love is the bond

Awareness the gift
Of your Presence true
One of surrender
As wisdoms the view

First

Opening of door
Into the outside
First breath of morning
Draw Spirit deep inside

First ray of sunshine
To shine upon the face
Touch of warming love
Speaks everything is grace

First view of this day
Pause the soul to see
All the gifts of beauty
That God is blessing me

Journey is prepared
First step upon the way
Let it be with You
First thought, now let us pray

Instill

Pray the heart seek
To offer the will
Let emptiness grow
Your peace to instill

Pray the heart view
Your Word to distill
Savor the Spirit
Your wisdom instill

Pray the heart long
Your promise fulfill
Intimate binding
Your love to instill

Pray the heart share
Your charity spill
In grace of the way
Your light to instill

Generations of a Prayer

Echoes of your voice
Still flow in my heart
As child heard you pray
Devotion you impart

Words familiar ring
Many times repeating
All throughout your life
Moment of retreating

Treasure blessed to you
Of generations past
Rock of faith in living
Inheritance that lasts

As my soul speaks the words
Still I hear you here
Grateful for connection
We bind in the same prayer

Be Now

Be now my beloved
Let me love you here
For it’s my desire
Accept my gift I share

Free now all the whispers
Of not worthy be
Nothing of the earning
Let me cherish thee

Dwell now in our being
Soaking of the deep
For I love you dearly
Let this truth here seep

Ground now in this knowing
Your soul I adore
Source of freedom living
Let our love outpour

Treasure of the Empty Present

A present beautiful
Underneath the tree
Unwrapping it with joy
Empty the box be

Come not disappointment
A gift to contemplate
Same as is our soul
This emptiness equate

Cherish this desire
To be filled with You
Let eye be of the soul
View gifts that we pursue

Lavished with Your blessings
All for us to share
Hope and peace and joy
Love beyond compare

Treasures of divine
Secure from rot or rust
Gift of faith is offered
In You we place our trust

Though beyond eyes sight
Eternal is their way
Store within life’s passing
Nourished when we pray

One within His body
Abundant is Your giving
Emanuel is born
In us Christ is living

Cherish here this treasure
Of emptiness so fine
Forever of the filling
With gifts of the divine

Thanksgiving Treasure

On this Thanksgiving day
A different way to measure
If this was our last day
What would be our treasure?

In ways that we were blessed
Of cherished memories
Stored within the soul
Of friends and family

Grateful for the gifts
Shared abundantly
What seemed a random path
In focus now we see

Moment of transition
Now to eternity
What will make the passage
Do we have the key?

Hard truth of the knowledge
Of sinners that we be
To greatest treasure cling
Our Savior walks with thee
