1 John 3:1

Lavished in love
How blessed to be
As children of God
And yet so are we

As children beloved
What we will be
Has not been made known
Our trust rests in He

But we do know
When Christ appears
We shall be like Him
And see Him made clear

All who have this hope
Themselves, purify
Just as He’s pure
As so glorified!

Love of Presence

I am so grateful
A gift You outpoured
One of dependence
Deep in my core

You’ve blessed me a treasure
Of a greater sense
The cultivation of
The love of Presence

A thought to ponder
How did this begin
A practice of stilling
Your love dwells within

In sacred stillness
Of Your voice, be aware
You are my beloved
In soul speaking clear

My hope of desire
This treasure to share
A practice of Presence
In a quiet prayer

Unique Love

Coming from our heart
Within found when we pray
Each of us is called
To love in a new way

No two be the same
Of God’s love to portray
Through us becomes incarnate
In variety of ways

Passionate or hidden
Or gentleness, convey
Each showing God’s love
In our unique own way

God’s love is so rich
And such a vast display
It takes every soul
Of each so show the way

So, let us each shine
Our light here this day
Sharing of God’s love
In our own special way

(based upon words by Henri Nouwen)

An Unfailing Love

You were born out of love
You will die into love
You are loved every day just the same

With an unfailing love
With a pure perfect love
His treasure for you here to claim

A one binding love
An Intimate love
A love that is given for free

With a blessing of love
With a sharing to love
In every soul the same love to see

Love of Seeking

I love the light of morning
Through blessed sky of blue
A soaking of within
That births the soul anew

I love the flowers blooming
The colors speak to me
A miracle of birthing
Joy of the beauty

I love the souls you send me
Encounters of this day
Which allows Your love
In sharing of new ways

I love my Lord that’s seeking
Of ways that He pursues
A drawing to embrace
To show the love of you

The Only Word

My child, my beloved
How I love you dear
I love you completely
Right now, and right here

Yes but, I’m a sinner
Yes but, if you know
Take now all the “yes buts”
Throw them out the window

Cherish the Word love
Repeating nice and slow
Savoring, surrounding
Soaking in its’ flow

Love, love, love, love
How I love you so
Love, love, love, love
Grace that You bestow

Word of the beginning
Until the end is heard
Let there be no other
As loves’ the only word

My Beloved One

This truth to be known
Completely aware
You are loved truly
Right now, and right here

You are loved fully
Cherished, adored
With a perfect love
Couldn’t be loved more

Repeat in your soul
In your veins to flow
Becoming your flesh
Incarnation to know

Echoing His voice
Child, I love you
My beloved one
I’ll always love you

Love Becomes

Child of the innocence
Body of the need
Mother of unselfishness
Love becomes a seed

Message of a broken world
Of pride and fantasy
I’m the one that’s in control
Love becoming me

Lost within a valley dark
Difficult to cope
Desperate for a Savior
Love becomes a hope

Found within the Spirits breath
The Fathers outstretched hand
The Son of God born unto us
Love becomes a man

Call of greater purpose be
Of our cross to lift
Dying here unto ourselves
Love becomes a gift

Can You See My Love

Gaze into Your Presence
A question asked to me
Can you see My love?
I say, absolutely

Looking at my children
The question appears
Can you see My love?
In their innocence here

Gathering with friends
The question adrifts
Can you see my love?
In all of their gifts

Encounter of the homeless
The question once more
Can you see My love?
In the lonely and poor

Past my enemy
The question stops me
Can you see My love?
A practice to be

Your Love is Complete

Anywhere that I am
Can be of a prayer
In stilling the soul
The Spirit to hear

There is nothing to need
Hide from or fear
Your love is complete
Right now and right here

Everyone that I meet
Let me be aware
You dwell in their soul
And You love them dear

Connecting in you
In your love we share
Your binding of love
Is of everywhere
