With a Word

Thanks to so many that leave kind comments

With a word of a friend
I’m always amazed
How they can lift you up
On the darkest of days

With a thought of the wise
Of encouragement be
They see something in you
That you didn’t see

And even online
Through a little comment
To me it’s the voice
Of the Spirit thats sent

And even a stranger
You meet on the way
Can help with direction
And go on their way

With a word of the Word
Don’t hesitate, here
Through the Spirit in us
We always can share

My Friend Speaks My Mind

Thank you emmlisten for the comment and inspiration

It ignites my soul
When in scriptures we find
The Lords relates to me and
My friend speaks my mind

Sometimes in the Spirit
I feel my words are blind
I know we’re one body when
My friend speaks my mind

What a blessing to me
When our souls are aligned
When a friend says to me
My friend speaks my mind

When we hear Jesus say
My joy is divine
When His Word is shared
My friend speaks my mind

My One Word for 2023 – Bridget A. Thomas


Check out Bridget’s word for the year… Here’s a poem to help kick it off


Thoughts of a shepherd 
Our pondering, begun 
A question for our soul 
Is do we need one? 

A leader of our life 
To follow faithfully 
To trust for sustenance 
Rest in security 

As brothers and sister 
In community 
It is in our shepherd 
We become one body

Who knows and adores us 
His treasure, we be
For we know that he’d lay
His life down for me

As our dwelling place
Wherever we roam
For where He is
Is where we call home

He has chosen us 
Our shepherd, divine 
Oh yes, I need a shepherd 
Jesus, lead this soul of mine 

Christmas in Heaven

What’s Christmas in heaven
I can’t really say
But here are some thoughts
That I think they’d relay

Don’t worry ‘bout me
I’m more that OK
I’m surrounded in love
In every way

But there’s something I want
On this Christmas day
To share in my treasures
With you today

To think of the times
Each little endeavor
We spent, you and I
That love lasts forever

Yes, there is grieving
The hole is here, still
But know I am with you
With my love to fill

Yes, I am watching
Still cheering you through
For I know that our God
Has great plans for you

For my greatest treasure
That earth can’t contain
Is my love for you
That will always, remain

Day One

It was day one
Our Christ in our land
Of the 33 years
That God had planned

Something was different
A buzz all over town
The Spirit was moving
Something had to be found

There was a feeling
Like never before
Deep was drawing
To come and adore

There in the manger
Our treasures delight
A breath of the sacred
Bathed in Holy light

The gaze of a babe
Of Presence to shine
Of wonder and awe
An encounter divine

A transformation
Each heart did enjoy
Left every soul blessed
And leaping with joy

Dawn has gold in its mouth

Inspired by Paths of the Spirit


Dawn’s Mouth

A vision is gifted
Such beauty to behold
For within dawn’s mouth
It is holding gold

With the ear of Spirit
Through a silent Word
Spoken from dawn’s mouth
Wisdom can be heard

To all within the light
A gentle love to share
A kiss sent from dawn’s mouth
Savoring peace here

To gather all creation
Our beloveness, declare
An offer of dawn’s mouth
To come share in a prayer

Two Great Equalizers

Facts of being human
Truths we all do share
Things we have in common
Let’s ponder some right here

Each of us are born
All of us will die
Two great equalizers
To all of us apply

Every soul is loved
And offered grace the same
A choice to be reborn
Eternity to claim

Come share the good news
Our Lord waits patiently
Open the door wide
Embrace Him, joyfully

Inspired by My Pastoral Ponderings

Flowers Evoke

Inspired by a post from Sandra

Flowers Evoke

Flowers evoke all our senses
Sight, smell, and touch are a few
Find here a sense of wonder
Of will to surrender unto

See of the colors, uniqueness
A facet of the greater view
Find here a sense of reflection
In love of the light pouring through

Inhale the sweet scent of beauty
To fill the space where we’re empty
Find here a sense of the drawing
The fragrance of humility

Feel what the soft petals offer
Dependence on life opens wide
Find here a sense of receiving
So grateful for all God provides

Receive a blessing of wisdom
A lesson of simplicity
Find here a sense of our purpose
To be who God made us to be

Gaze on a seed of beholding
To nurture its’ fruit tenderly
Find here a sense our hope
A glimpse of our faiths’ legacy

Know of the gift of His Presence
With lens of perspective anew
Find here the sense of reminder
The beauty that God sees in you

What Might This Be — Into the Light Adventures

What Might This Be, I have always been one to stop and look at everything since I was a child. Photography has made it even more fun to look at all the little things that we tend to walk right by without a second glance. 139 more words

What Might This Be — Into the Light Adventures

A Reflection of Her Thoughts

What Might This Be

Blessed be the soul
One who stops to see
Pondering the question
What might this be?

Blessed be this day
To pause and slow down
Of life to be enjoyed
In all that surrounds

Blessed be the light
Of soul to reflect
Let it’s facets soak
Deep within, affect

Blessed be our God
With simple answer, of
Oh, what might this be?
It is His Word of love

Song of Love

Sing to me a song of love
A grace to soul impart
A flowing gift of peace
Stirring in the heart

One found in the stillness
Of the dawning light
A gentle voice of silence
Connection of delight

Let soul sing along with You
With Word that You inspire
Binding sweet of lyric deep
One of souls’ desire

Carry now this tune to be
Move other souls to say
Share me this song of love
For us to sing this day
