Perceptions of the We

Perceptions of the we
Should be attuned to Thee
Filtered through His Spirit
As with the honeybee.

In the playing of harmoniously
Selflessly fluttering wings
Alone, and yet together
In unison fledgelings

Respecting all the others
Delicately tuned with prong
Different parts all come together
In chorales Spring along

As nectar feeds and pollinates
His Spirit fills with love
The wonder of the spreading
Lending faith it’s glove

Because of Your Mercy

By Your Mercy and grace
Bestowed unto me
I live and I grow
In Your obedience
You let me see Lord
Each new breaking sun
How thankful I am
For each and every one
As you continue
To hone in my heart
I am ever so rich in Your truth
As Your sunlight touches my face …
Help me to be more like You
Because of Your mercy …
Because of Your mercy …
Because of Your mercy and grace k

Have a great and God blessed day friend

Make Amends

Do not be afraid
Come unto me and rest
I will make you whole again
I am with You always says the Lord
Go and make amends with those you have hurt
Forgiveness makes a home for understanding
Freedom is but a breath away
Live in my wisdom and not your own
I love you
Let Go and Let Me heal you k

Rest in His Arms

Ephesians 4:26 “Be angry and sin not; do not let the sun go down upon your anger.”
I’ve made my mistakes in life as much I haved loved. Sensitivity, knee jerking and such; needing much help from above. I love people. I’ve always known that it is
best to let slights go and never hold a grudge. I have learned; better to remember the beautiful things in people, than to dwell upon the pain. love hopes all things and I love people. All people need The Lord.
I always apologize, even If the other person has hurt me. I always forgive as God has forgiven me.
I never want to lose the precious sound of the Holy Spirit in my heart.
I love you with the love that God has given to me. I see you in the glory of the King and remain in such love.
Draw close to Him tonight as you lay your weary head softly and tenderly on the pillow. Rest in His arms. His arms never grow tired.
You’ll feel His love more and more and He will never let you go. You can cry if you want. He will wipe those tears away and He will always protect and deliver you; and in the process, bring miracles of love into your being.
Have a beautiful night love

Mourning Dove

I heard a mourning dove today
Faintly break the gray
Barely a distant February
Not quite March or May
Was she waiting for someone patiently?
No echo to be heard
I always thought they came with fare
As mourning doves in pairs
And all the whispers whistled
And all the candy cooed …
And all the best departed
A mourning dove too soon

In Christ Alone We Trust

Consider this
-
From the beginning of time
History repeats itself
Without God …The downward spiral is clear
Where someone can sow
With unGodly and unkind ideas
Gods presence receive a slap in the face
People have no respect for authority, with misplaced grace
Courtrooms slay, in the name of selfish rights
Castrating justice, fixing the fights
Power and influence with lies winning acquittals
Innocents falling through cracks as
The madding crowds glare and gawk
Cutting insults as we walk
With salt … rubbed into the wounds
How does one even feel from here
As they assuage guilt and blame
with deaf ears; pounding on unabashedly
This world can be so callous and cavalier
We have lost respect for life and morality
In halls of fame that lead to shame
Until the skylight sees the dawn
He is attuned, to the Humble Song of the wren
Whispering in our hearts
The cross is our friend
Where God has reconciled us to man
The day He covered all our sin
And placed a still small voice within
We see that pipe dreams come to naught
When God breaks through … with perfect plan
Emanuel “God with us”
Who felt our pain from deep to deep
When all was vanity, and fitful sleep
Enter, The Shepherd, the Shepherd of peace
Who carries our egos. . . to quietus
When we realize we are but His sheep
He is the trophy, that we seek
He is strong and we are Weak
He is justice, mercy and love and peace
He is our Constitution, “In Christ alone we trust, and speak”

Java House

The fishing jigs are callin out my name
Flaggin me down
To venture out of my warm bob house
To slip and slide cross the ice
This fishing scene is in my blood
Good for the old patience
More of a waiting game
I’ve needed the diversion like Heaven
And today I’m feelin mighty good
I’m a player and this is a standup gig…
Meetin new people and havin a ball
As expert fishermen stare at their Jigs
Until the fish skip the light fandango
Getting hooked dancing down the line
Nothin yet, but sometimes they catch four, sometimes five
No one saying “want some cheese with that whine.”
No one caring bout troubles
They’re all left behind
Me, I’m back on land now, with my vintage sign
“Hot Coffee” and a string along song
More my forte, to hear great big fish stories come alive
To see the gleam in a little boys eye
Bringing misty tears to the shore every time
“Breaker breaker one nine!”
“More frozen body parts coming my way!”
The only solid tips I’ve felt all day
One cup, two cups … maybe more …
