the Value of a moment

The value of a moment
Sometimes we’ll never know
Until we gain perspective
Of memory to show

Snow angels in winter
Stars of a summers’ night
The smell of spring rain
Waves of oceans’ light

Let the Lord lead us
And show us the way
With vision of soul
To pause and to pray

It’s only when we see
Through eyes with His view
That allows us to capture
A moments’ value

Given

He took, blessed, and broke
Then He gave the bread
A miracle to all
Five thousand souls were fed

And for His last supper
Again, He took and blessed
He broke and He gave
His love to friends, professed

The chosen One was blessed
On His cross was broken
God incarnate, given
He is the Word spoken

Walking to Emmaus
With bread of which to share
Took, blessed, broke and gave
Our Lord to them appeared

And so, as His beloved
Through Him, spiritually
Chosen, blessed and broken
And given, let us be

Based upon words by Henri Nouwen

Good Either Way

Biden or Trump 

We don’t know today  

But let our souls say  

We are good either way  

For we know our leader  

And have peace of mind  

For our Lord and Savior  

Is of the divine  

For we cast our vote  

Each and every day  

By sharing his love  

And when we pray 

We still carry hope  

If not of our plans  

For we place our trust  

Into God’s hands 

Morning Mist Lingers

The morning mist lingers
The sunrise pours through
The Lord clearly shines
And the Spirit dwells too

So silent the rising
As birdsong begins
Stillness is drawing
A movement within

Inner of warming
A chill in the air
Prayer of beyond
Of being right here

And a reminder
Wherever we go
A beautiful comfort
Of peace here to know

The Tree and a Breeze

When blows the gentle breeze
The seedling seems to say
Hey leave me in peace
Won’t you go away

To nudge in all directions
To tree, the breeze does show
Stretching far and wide
Its roots which way to grow

When the fierce winds come
The tree begins to see
That the gentle breeze
Was just preparing me

Now the great oak sways
With blessing the breeze sends
As they dance together
In joy, these lifelong friends

Many Prayers

Such joy overflowed
When you were born here
You are the answer
To many prayers

Of how Jesus has saved you
In this world of fear
You hold the answer
To many prayers

Through self-sacrifice
In ways that you care
You have been the answer
To many prayers

If you will follow
The Spirits voice, hear
You can be the answer
To many prayers

In joy of the journey
With Gods love to share
You will be the answer
To many prayers

Greater in Here

Walls can’t contain You
Of this I’m aware
But praying in Church
It’s greater in here

So brilliant the sunrise
The light shining clear
But through the stained glass
It’s greater in here

I see that’s it’s true
That You are everywhere
But I feel that Your Presence
It’s greater in here

You can’t love us more
Cherished so dear
But somehow, I feel
It’s greater in here

Throughout of day
A practice of prayer
Your deepness of dwelling
It’s greater in here

Our life that is blessed
With gifts that You share
But finding Your joy
It’s greatest in here

Time with The Flowers

Take time with the flowers
A practice here this day
Who knows what we will find
When pausing in the way

Many shapes and colors
A pleasure here to see
Each one is a unique
Of fragrance blessing me

A hopeful bursting bud
Or fully in their prime
A family of sharing
Some beyond their time

Have a closer look
Of many layers be
Incredible the details
Of intricate beauty

Filling of emotions
Joyful, feeling glad
Binding with their friends
Or drooping feeling sad

Petals, soft and tender
To treat delicately
Together we can share
Our vulnerability

Taking time with people
With another view
In souls that we encounter
We find the same is true

Come Presence of Morning

Come Presence of morning
Of light pouring through
An opening dawning
Invitation into

Come Presence of morning
Of new birth begin
Embrace of stillness
Of welcoming in

Come Presence of morning
Sweet silent sounds
Creation to offer
One binding surrounds

Come Presence of morning
With love as its song
That calls one and all
To the One we belong
