“God bless you and keep you keep you;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”

Living God
Jesus Lord
The great I am
Alpha and Omega
Sacrificial Lamb
Creator of
The universe
Of all things seen
And all things heard
Jesus Lord
In all His perfectness
The sovereign King
Of righteousness

My resting place
My heaped up Heart
Doth seek Your face
Beside You Lord …
There is no one
Praises to

Living God
My resting place
My heaped up heart
Doth seek Your face
Above all angels, seraphim
My life
My home
My Elohim

The Oldest Wooden Tree

If your feeling tuckered out
Lonely and quite blue
Be apprised of this fact dear one
Jesus wholly loves you
There’s a coat rack in the hall
Strong and tall and empty
Longing to hold your hat
Come one, and come all
Hang all of your troubles, on the oldest wooden tree
Take a load off of all your weary bones …
There’s plenty of room upon the oldest wooden tree
Plenty of room on His settee
Hang your hat, breathe in …
Drop your troubles there
The coat rack waits quietly
For all your heavy cares
Close your weary eyes
The whole weight disappears
Upon the oldest wooden tree
Release to Jesus, all your fears
Hang all of your troubles, on the oldest wooden tree
Take a load off of all your weary bones …
There’s plenty of room upon the oldest wooden tree
Plenty of room on His settee

I long for you my Jesus Lord
I walk into Your vestibule
My strength renewed, fully restored
Your grace is my refuge

In Your sanctuary sweet
I am sheltered from the storm
Your word, my sword, and shield
Your grace is my refuge

Your arms so tight around me
So soft and oh so warm
I am always safe…I’m with You
Sheltered from all storms

For Thou Oh Lord art with me

Above the dark deluge

My precious Savior Jesus
Your grace is my refuge

We always have to remind ourselves that Jesus is with us no matter how dismal the situation that comes our way.  He is always beside us, behind us and inside us.  He will never leave us.  We need to let Him comfort us.

Continuously communicate with Him and tell Him how you feel. Trust in His perfect and everlasting love for you. Pray unceasingly. Let His Holy Spirit fill you. Feel the healing power of Jesus. Even on the coldest of days our hearts are kindled by the fire of His love for us. Ooh… It’s getting warm in here!
You are so loved!

Rest well my friend

Heaven Bound

Heaven bound

Hallelujah He is coming
Very soon the trump will sound
Hallelujah He is coming
We’ll meet Jesus in the clouds

Live His love, leave our pride
Egress on, with hearts held high
Overcomer’s side by side
On this journey by and by

When many arrows point our way
His sword and shield, let them fly
One foot standing on this earth
One heart looking toward the sky

We see dimly through the glass
God works all things for our good
We need not know the day or time
God’s perfect love, understood

Hallelujah He is coming
Very soon the trump will sound
Hallelujah, He is coming
We’ll meet Jesus in the clouds
No more crying no more pain
No more death, nor dying
In the twinkling of an eye
Alive with Christ eternally

I Glory in My Saviors Love for Me

It’s paramount to see
In this world I may have nothing
With Jesus in my heart
I have everything

When diverse trials come my way
And try to take my peace
I count it all joy, my friend
He surely tempers me

Perfecting me in wondrous ways
I knew not of before
To glory in my Saviours love
Better things in store

Simply Free

Let us sit by the fire
Come with me friend
To the banks of the river
At Lampreys bend

I’ll cook you a kettle
Of the finest fish
We’ll eat of some brown bread
From copper dish

With a smidge of sweet butter
Steamed o’er rocks,…river view
With some birch paper glasses
Filled with heavenly dew

Not a care in the world
On this bed of green grass
Nothing here to bother
This little lass

It’s so nice to be resting
Relaxing in Brie
No worries, no fretting
Just simply free

It’s so nice to be resting
Relaxing in Brie
No worries, no fretting
God’s got you and me

Gods View

Quietly, I walk away
Although I am no coward
I sleep in peace, beyond all fear
I wield no earthly sword

I swiftly move through scorching fires
His word, a mighty sword
His heart inside my heart of hearts
I’m safe from worldly wars

By God’s own arm, delivered true
I’ve overcome all odds
My head held high, heart toward the sky
I forgive by the grace of God

By His power, by His strength
Holy Spirit filled
Our dear Lord Jesus never fails
His love in me instilled

God affirmed, my bellevue
Walking in His word
Not by my power, nor by my strength
But by my Spirit says, The Lord

And by His power, by His strength
No other way, or view
Our dear Lord Jesus never fails
His love in me and you

Have a wonderful God blessed day friend k

Unceasing Prayer

I’ve sailed for miles in creaky boats
From pier to pier through daunting seas
Hearing wind and water sing
What laps o’er rocks and toughness brings

Divine and loving mercy donned
Unceasing love is what saved me
Treading balanced beams in prayer
To reap and sow His blessings fair

Jesus, oh Jesus
How you lifted me
Jesus, oh Jesus
I’m floating on with Thee

Pouring down from Christ The Lord
The oil of joy and stilly healing
Glued and seasoned seams and board
By God, His graceful tempering

His love has truly freed my soul
Lord, You set my Spirit free
Once I grasped the letting go
Where all is calm, stable, free

Jesus oh Jesus
How You lifted me
Jesus I’m sailing
Floating on with Thee

A Hymn by
Kelly S Griswold

Jesus Christ The Living God
Puts all our cares behind us

For You

I’m not just chasing rainbow sun
When I say I love someone
I cannot change, on loving people
It’s as real as rain on steeples

Beading up on bended ivy
Climbing high and hanging free
I see my Fathers’ mirrored view
Echo trills, that sound of Thee

Bringing all the way back home
The happiness of letting go
Sweet, the song, rolls on and on
‘Specially on a springtime stroll

In stillness, giving up my treasures
All to Jesus, weight and measure
God my best friend under none
When I say I love someone

I’ll watch as pearls bend, tip and drop
Just because … well love is love
I’ll wait … From distances near crops
For real love never fades nor stops

A gentle rose in hopes repose
Grows and grows and Heaven knows
To love someone, I’ll water you
For His glory, His will, I’ll do

Kelly Sampson Griswold

Fully Tuned To Jesus

I’d rather be discerning
Than judgemental, if I may
Float atop the water
Ride above the fray

My Lord, my light, my compass
On course, my rudder straight
His heart upon my heart of hearts
To gently lead the way

Fully tuned  to Jesus
Guided by His word
Singing like a mourning dove
His song my heart has heard

Above the fierce melee
I shall not be not dismayed
I’ll slice it clean, let God allay
I shall not be afraid

Sailing In His Spirit
To cease or to engage
I’m letting go and letting God
Forgiveness wins the day
