Choices

Oh Lord, let me claim
The gift You bless to me
One of a free will
In choosing what to be

I choose to be faithful
Of trust and not fear
I choose to be loving
Of everyone here

To be of the moment
Let Your joy surround
Compassionate, humble
Forgiveness abound

I choose to be holy
Often to pray
All that I receive
I choose to give away

I will fail these choices
I know this to be true
Let me be dependent
On the grace of You

Let You Be Real

Who are you Jesus
That I seek to find?
A mystery great
Of man and divine

Healer, consoler
Where wisdom is found
Hope of the lost
Turns the world upside down

Move out of the box
With truth to reveal
A friendship to grow
Please let You be real

Let go of perception
In prayer, may You just be
With transforming love
Found in humility

The Spirit Moved You

Something stirred within
You let the Spirit flow
It moved you to reach out
Offer of prayer, bestow

Moving of my heart
That you truly cared
Connection through our Lord
Of binding that we shared

To skip, it would be easy
But you knew what to do
You just didn’t say it
Committed, followed through

Gathered side by side
Words of such beauty
The Spirit flowed through you
And your prayer moved me

Your thoughtfulness remains
In this day anew
Filled with Spirits love
May it flow back to you

Day Today

It’s a joy filled day today
When I hear the Spirit say
Come walk with me to dwell and pray
It’s a joy filled day

It’s a blessed day today
To seek the gifts that God conveys
To receive and give away
It’s a blessed day

It’s a hopeful day today
To see the light within the way
To shine it in the dark and gray
It’s a hopeful day today

It’s a peaceful day today
The beautiful is on display
Faith within the Son relay
It’s a peaceful day

A Beautiful Life

Just a chance encounter
A woman cut my hair
But of greater value
Where words she had to share

From another country
A Mother and a wife
But those of her first words
“I have a beautiful life”

She offered her story
Of near death and of fear
Tragedy avoided
Power of her prayer

Simple of the daily
In sharing of the bread
Add water to the soup
An even more are fed

A lesson of perspective
When seen in God’s view
That we all can say
My life is beautiful too!

A Body of Greater

Stillness so gentle
In water it shines
A dwelling of deeper
A blessing divine

A calling acceptance
Love here to know
A body of greater
One of the flow

Soft is the breeze
Spirit uplifting
Inner of stirring
A sending of gifting

A touching of light
A blessing preparing
A movement ordained
In reflection of sharing

Views from the Beach

What I love at the beach
Perspective to see
Reflections of teaching
Of humility

View of horizon
Light shining clear
That there’s so much more
Then we see right here

One grain of sand
A single soul be
Of billions before
That passed before me

One flowing wave
Of so many more
As my life a symbol
Arrives at the shore

One simple part
Of something much greater
When our life binds into
One with our Creator
