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

A Song Lord

Bless me a song Lord
A psalm, soft and clear
That you love me so
My soul longs to hear

Bless me Your peace Lord
Remain ever near
Be my protection
Cast away fear

Let me trust you Lord
My soul be aware
That all that I need
Is that You are here

Help me to serve
Compassion to care
Outpouring of love
The joy that we share

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

Nestled in Nature

A morning full of drawing
So beautiful the view
A gentle light is flowing
Here now pouring through

Sweet the invitation
Of the mourning doves coo
All of creation
Comes to pray along too

A blessing of peace
Acceptance pursue
Into one of being
Of nurturing construe

Sense of the belonging
Nothing here to do
Nestled in the nature
Of Gods embrace of you

A welcoming Spirit
Of blessing pursue
In souls of encounter
May they be drawn into

Senses of the Spirit

Of things unseen
We are aware
Though we don’t see
We know they’re there

Warmth in the light
Caress of a breeze
Fragrance of flower
A song of heart, seize

Through practice of soul
Development to strive
Known within the Spirit
Beyond our senses, five

Receiving of Your love
Practicing of joy
Peace, faith, and hope
Treasures to employ

Senses of the Spirit
Of blessings to be shown
Eye which cannot see
But of the soul is known

Joy in the Sparrow

Can I find joy in the sparrow
Found in this moment right here
A practice of being of Presence
A gift that our God wants to share

May I remain in the moment
Letting the flying bird go
Seeking the treasures unseen
Gifts that the Spirit bestows

Dwelling in peace of the moment
Away from the me now to drift
Receiving your love ever present
An offer of gratefulness, lift

Let me be one of the moment
Time of eternity find
Presence of love and of peace
Sharing the gifts of divine

A Morning Full

A morning full of color
A moving to invoke
Beauty of the being
Of dawning light to soak

A morning full of sound
Sweet the song of praise
Awakening the soul
Of offering to raise

A morning full of peace
Of still serenity
Drawing of the soul
Into the love of Thee

A morning full of prayer
One with our Creator
That calls the soul unto
Something of the greater

Deep Is the Stillness

In time of Your Presence
An offer herein
Deep is the stillness
Of drawing within

Desire of soul
Our answer is clear
A thirsting of need
Oh Lord, lead us there

One of the center
Foundation of view
Soul of the seeing
Through the lens of You

In our joys and sorrows
Whatever we face
We’re safe and secure
Deep in Your embrace
