Picture of Flowers

In the depth of winter
In barrenness of view
I caught a glimpse of picture
Of color that shown through

Masterpiece of beauty
A wonderful display
A garden of flowers
That seems so, far away

Contrast to the outlook
Of this morn’, cold and gray
Let it warm the soul
And take it now to pray

With vision of capture
Of season to know
The coming of hope
For our Lord to show

Psalm 86

Lord you are forgiving
All good through and through
Abounding in Your love
To all who call to You

Hear my prayer oh Lord
My cry for mercy
In distress I call
Because You answer me

Teach me Your ways, oh Lord
Your faithfulness, proclaim
With undivided heart
Trusting in Your name

I praise You, Lord my God
Heart be magnified
Forever let me say
Your name be glorified

For Your love is great
Steadfast love for me
My soul you’ve delivered
In Your eternity

Forever to Be Shared

My child, how I love you
Far beyond today
One of the eternal
More than words can say

In this moment blessed
Of captured vision see
Perhaps one day return
Of binding memory

In this way to find me
In spark of mornings light
Upon a crest of wave
Flow in soul’s delight

Know you’ll find me waiting
Of home to be prepared
In precious light of heaven
Forever to be shared

Two Tears, One Love

Two tears on two cheeks
Roll down on the face
Flow in sorrows joy
Blend in one embrace

Known in loves goodbye
Love our parting gift
Into Fathers hands
Hope of souls to lift

One goes in beyond
Of unknown treasure, true
Heavens gift of grace
Be granted unto you

One stays in between
The journey not yet through
In prayer, be the connection
The love of heavens view

Verses of Life

In life’s deepest valleys
Or in our darkest night
Let us proclaim
Walk by faith, not by sight

When lost within the way
Not sure how to cope
For I know the plans for you
Your future and your hope

When doubt overwhelms
Worlds temptation shows
Draw to inner prayer
Lord to whom, shall we go?

When in life of living
Quotes can be cliché
The answers wrapped in love
When we pause to pray

People of Easter

(based upon a quote from Pope John Paul II)

He issued a call
For holiness true
Let Gods light appear
Flow through me and through you

Do not abandon
Yourself to despair
We are people of Easter
Hallelujah we share

In difficult times
Let this be our song
Binding in Word
Through the One we belong

We are people of joy
One of the light
We’ve nothing to fear
Lords’ love shining bright

Hold fast to our faith
Proclamation to cope
God will not disappoint
Through His promise of hope

Hey Ma

Hey Ma, how ya doin’?
Oh, there’s such beauty
Fear not, my beloved
One day you will see

Everything is clear
Now I understand
Revealed in perfection
The glory of His plan

Know that I’ll be with you
Through Spirits guiding light
Trust within our faith
All will be all right

We will be as one
With each prayer you say
Watching over you
And with you every day
