The Beautiful Kite

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; an lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths”

The Beautiful Kite

Investing the time in building the kite
A string and it’s strength… and a test of the fight
When all of a sudden, The wind took to flight
The tension grew tight, I held on for dear life
-
(Fly away pretty for your own sake
Fly away beautiful; string don’t you break)
-
Just past my reach, in the great big sky
I let go, and Let God as it floated on by
The one in control of the wind and the tail
Would protect the wild kite
Until safely in veil
-
(So fly away pretty for your own sake
Fly away beautiful; string’s they do break)
-
I remembered the Charge
Never hold on too tight
In God’s love, trust is freedom
and all is quite right

Easters New Life

Isaiah 43:1 “But now thus saith the Lord, that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.”

Spring brings new life after the difficult winter. The harness of winter has left its mark, but under the ground the roots are ready to bring forth their beauty. Beauty that will wipe away winters stains.

Easter also brings us new life as we remember the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. No one suffered as He did on the cross, and He did it for us. His resurrection gives us all new hope.

The hardness of life has left many stains or burdens on our hearts. We are not able to handle them in our own strength. Jesus wants us to lay our burdens at the cross and look to Him and know His redemptive love.

He knows our names. We are His. We are precious in His site. He will never let us go. He has us in the palm of His hands. We can trust Him in all things. See Him as He sees each one of us. Our roots in Him are strong, and beauty is ready to spring forth.

Happy Easter,
In Christ,
Kelly

My Irish Lullably

Turn the key, it’s always open love
Lift your weary eyes unto God
Let him soothe you now, and bear all your pain
Come to The One who frees all
-
If Your heart, be heavy from burden
He’ll break all those shackles your in
Let Him cleanse you deep … and you lull you to sleep
Be washed, white as snow, in the fountain …
-
Leave all your sins, at the cross …
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm
-
Leave all your sins
At the cross … “A leanbh”
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall, like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm

Effortlessly…the Dolphin flys

Smooth and sleek her bounding arc
With sweet surrender, grace embarks

Her voice on cue intelligent
Natural her messaging
Back and forth with elegance
To slice into the sundry sea

Stays long side them losing none

Lord Help Me Soar

Thank you Lord Jesus
for Your perfect love and grace each morn
Your kindness
The simple sight, of a bluebird in Spring
Flying freely across Your great big sky
The warm sweet blanket of Your mercy
Your continuous hand, reaching out to us all
Picking us up when we fall
We call out to You in our times of trial
You are the essence of hope in our lives
By the power of Your Holy Spirit
Fill us up, with Your love
As we pray unceasingly
You are our hope and victory
Nothing can penetrate us to weaken us
For we have You to keep us strong
Teach us to be more like You
To soar above the clouds
In Your love
Ever closer to You
Each day of our lives

Heart of Christ

To have an attitude, of grace
Not one of pride and strife
Listen with, the heart of Christ
Holy Spirit filled, tis life

Contentions, wants, terse attitudes
Stridant words, that spoil the stew
Will never yield nor peace exude
Until Dear Lord, we steep in You
-
Which, will win out, in the end
God’s tender ways so pure and true
To live in His ways, humbly bend
Patience, love and gratitude

It Was There

You have been lifted high above the pain; up from the ashes of your travail.
He has transformed you into healing beauty where you have been brought forth as gold.
If you have felt alone; it was because, it was there, that He did His greatest work in you.

Jesus made a promise in Matt 28:20 “…I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”

May your day be blessed through Him; knowing that He infinitely loves you

Springs Treasure

The snow will soon be over
Making lumens for the spring
To Magnify the green green grass
Revived for us again
What we’ve learned
Will be sustained
Gods Winter wisdoms
Treasure gained
With each new morn
New flowers born
Could never be explained

Long The Way Home

IMG_1776
I hear the susurrous sounds
Pins that pluck on downward
The music box is playing
Round and round with spring
-
Cylinders are moving
Slipping o’er bumps
Tuning forks and sound beams
Soothing my soul home
-
And I love you so
Dancing in my dreams
Sleep will soon abound for me
Sewing up the seams
