Hope Realized

All living things
Will come to die
A truth to see
We can’t deny

God’s chosen ones
Then found a way
If without sin
Gods wrath to sway

Try though they might
With rules construe
But it’s a task
No man can do

God out of love
His Son He gave
Man and divine
For us to save

He showed the way
Of love so pure
Send on a task
One to endure

He took our sins
Yes, everyone
To Father said
Your will be done

A suffering
So cruel, He died
By hands of men
Was crucified

Laid in a tomb
He body spread
On the third day
Rose from the dead

He conquered death
Our joy to be
Our hope realized
Eternally!

A Little Window

Bless a little window
Shine a little light
Send a little hope
One of soul’s insight

Gift a little faith
Spark a little flame
Speak a little word
Faith of which to claim

Seek a little silence
Be a little still
Say a little prayer
Offer up your will

Looking through the window
Truth to contemplate
His desire to out pour
All His treasures, great

Gods’ Love

As a little child
I was taught to see
Through prayer of the Our Father
Our God loves tenderly

In the teenage years
I grew rebelliously
Though I didn’t see it
God loves unselfishly

My spouse of the meeting
A binding of the three
In our celebration
God loved joyfully

A blessings gift of children
A new view now to see
Perspective of the Father
Love unconditionally

A call of the returning
To seek forgivingly
New seeds of the planting
God loves mercifully

As mid-life was approaching
Less years in front of me
Roots of contemplation
God loves intimately

Though eyes grow old and weary
The soul can clearly see
A grateful hearts reflection
God loves tremendously

When the journeys finished
Hope for us to see
The facets of God’s love
For all eternity

Another Novena

Another novena
To offer up too
May this be different
A changing of view

You know my desire
My wants and my needs
Let my request
To Your will, concede

Oh Lord I am grateful
Of Your love so true
Whatever’s before me
May I trust in You

Oh Lord I am sorry
For I sin against You
Rejoice in Your mercy
Let me forgive too

You are all that I need
With me to cope
Letting You be
My source of all hope

Let me repeat
These thoughts each day
Leaving some time
To hear what You say

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
