Springtime Eve

I look around me, all I see….
Peace and perfect harmony.
No hustle, bustle, stress or care.
Just blossom bursting everywhere,
and birdsong praising God on High.
Sunshine glitter.
Bluest sky.

I stop and listen, breathe the air…
Thank my God
for being there.
Such a canvas, such a day.
His Glory, Story, every way….
We let Him go, he reels us in
forever wading through our sin.
His Hand, His Heart, His Will, His Time.
His Grace and Love
Outpoured,
Divine.

I close my eyes and ever feel,
so humbled as my Spirit yields,
to One who gave His Life for me.
With ears to hear, and eyes to see.
Simplicity,
Believe, Receive.
The wonder of a Springtime Eve.

For I know the plans I have for you !

for I know the plans I have for you’, if you hold fast to Me.
I know there will be wonderful, if you have eyes to see.
I know there will be music, if you have ears to hear.
And I know there will be beautiful,
for God is ever near.

I know there will be trials too, and sorrows play a part,
But all is good, what’ ere may come, when Faith reigns in your heart.
‘for I know the plans I have for you’, if you hold fast to Me.
Nothing is impossible, and every dream can be.

Remnant

Broken people stumbling,
trying to find our way.
Lord help Your lambs to trust in You,
in all we do and say.

Help us all to bathe in Grace,
Discerning right from wrong.
Lead us,
guide us,
every step,
the weak to be made strong.

Not one of us is perfect,
and none of us is whole.
We need You Jesus every day,
Redeemer of the soul.

Help us in our Daily walk,
through shadows ever grey.
To grow,
to heal
Give thanks, and kneel,
humbled hearts to pray.

Everyone is broken,
and everyone is scarred.
Everyone has secret pain,
where clarity is marred.

And all so need my Savior,
to stand before the Throne.
Sanctify the sinners heart,
and lead the Remnant Home.

2 Corinthians 12:9,
‘And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness’.

Love Unseen

Sometimes Lord,
I can’t do anymore.
Think anymore.
Sink anymore….

Then I pray,
‘Just hold me,
enfold me,’
until the storms of my heart,
and the whirlpools in my mind
subside.

Do you know how much I need You?
Every day,
every way
that there is.

To see your Face,
feel Your Grace,
wash over me.
Hear You say,

‘Hey,
here I am.

Love unseen,
always been
by your side.’

and always Lord,
so tangled
and mangled

by living.
You lift me High,
help me fly,
forgiving.

I Saw The Face Of Jesus

I saw the Face of Jesus,
when all the walls fell down.
I didn’t know just who He was,
and barely touched his gown.

I saw the Face of Jesus,
when Widowhood drew near,
He held His arms outstretched to me
and wiped away the tears.

‘Lo I am with you always.
Beginning and the End.
Will love you to Eternity,
The Comforter,

My Friend.
and

I saw the Face of Jesus,
while sitting in a plane.
He said ,‘I know your heartache.’
He said, ‘I know your pain‘.

He told me that He Loved me so,
and beckoned , ‘Come to me’.
Rest awhile beneath my wings
to ever strengthen thee.

Summer Mom

How blessed this Summer morning.
The gentle scented breeze.
Golden shafts of sunshine,
showered from the trees.
New life in the hedgerows,
blossom dancing round.
Drinking in the wonder,
where beautiful is found.

Looking up to rustling leaves,
against the bluest sky.
As overhead an Eagle soars
flies my spirit high.
Over velvet mountains,
fields of golden corn.
Fills my soul,
makes me whole,
and perfect peace is born.

For My Queen


Sixty years of Service.
Sixty years of life.
And in-between,
all goes unseen,
a mother and a wife.

No privacy to speak of,
an ever open book.
Idolized and criticized,
by all who stop to look.

Born into a no choice deal,
still learning how to be.
You bore the Crown of England,
Became ‘Her Majesty’.

Through wars, and threats, and scandals,
Unflinching in your role,
You have led our Country,
Given heart and soul.

Gracious Lady
Thank You,
for all you mean to me.
May God Bless,
with peace and rest,
this year of Jubilee.

Today

Today I felt your arms around me,
ever close and warm.
Knew that you would carry me,
throughout the coming storm.
Knew there would be better days,
brighter things in store.
And as I melted into You,
felt you Love me more.

Today I knew again my Lord,
none can get between.
Nothing here can steal my Joy,
the wonder of my dreams.
Nothing here can quite compare,
to all I feel for You.
How much you are part of me,
in all I try to do.

So bring it on,
and then be gone,
the heartache of life’s trials.
I have Greater things than this
to fill my heart with smiles.
Jesus stands with open arms.
Bathes me in God’s Grace.
Leads me ,daily, closer Home,
where I will find my place.

Today I felt your arms around me,
ever close and warm.
Knew that you would carry me ,
throughout the coming storm.
Knew there would be better days
brighter things in store.
And as I melted into You,
felt you Love me more.
