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

Stay warm friend
Rest well and sweet dreams

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

An Irish Lullaby

Dolphins

Effortlessly…the Dolphin flys
She moves transcending poise with style
Smooth and sleek her bounding arc
With sweet surrender, grace embarks
-
A gentle answer to a prayer
As we listen, then we feel
Spirited Joyous, frolicking
Part of Gods great goodness be
-
Her voice on cue intelligent
Natural her messaging
Back and forth with elegance
To slice into the sundry sea
-
Slows right down for weaker ones
Stays long side them losing none
Coalescing, peaceful place to be
Ways to live in harmony

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

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

Memories of Mom

Pressing on strings of Heaven dear
A love songs warmth imbues
I see you on the inside
In drops of royal dew
-
With this dawning soliloquy
My heart doth ache for you
I’m missing threads of yesteryear
In hues of green and blue
-
Sipping on tea at breakfast
Zion’s Country side in view
Resonant strides of jeans appear
Loves drapery of you
-
We walked the long and winding trails
Before you flew to rest
Up the joyful driveway
Invigorating quest
-
Toughness, courage, tenacity
Only Jesus best
The strength instilled inside me
The place in which to rest
-
God on every roadside
Growing up in simple faith
Hardship was no load to bear
Jesus Word saith
-
I Am is all I hear
His strength to scale each wall
‘Twas you my mother Who taught me ere
On Him that we must call
-

-
Thank you Lord, for my Mother
Who taught me … “The All”
On Him alone that we must call

Late Winter

Northern fronts
Can be quite blunt
Back and forth
With a kick pass punt
-
Changing direction
Chiming windmills
Airbrushing sun tattoos
Before being stilled
-
Tears on my face
As I tend to the mill
But I’ve had fulfillment
In this long winters’ chill
-
For trust in God
The key to strength
Endurance, resilience
To go the length
-
Winter cloths
Caress with salve
Red cracked lips
At the frozen improv
-
The turning of pages
Brings love to the verse
Settling yesterdays’ bout
With the cold winters burst

Peaceful Prism

Windows glisten, as they frost
Looking out at colder blues
Red and yellow and orange views
Fellow shades for warmer hues
-
Geometric prisms serve
In patterns turn, kaleidoscopes
eyes are rolling in an arc
painting pretty isotopes
-
Beyond the specs of yesteryear
Tears that glow yet move on by
For God, our hungry appetite
His beauty sings, a lullaby
-
Sweet and soft, the tender beams
Filling longing souls with glee
Melting frozen hearts with ease
Holy Spirit heals and frees
-
He who hung the whole world wide
Holds us in His hand so tight
Lays us in His bosom light
Bids us come without a fight
-
The eye doth rise above each plight
In His strength and in His sight
His victory grins from ear to ear
His song with muffs to warm us here
