Romany

Life is The Spirit.
Love is the heart.
Joy is in finding,
that most sacred part....

The Place we are grateful,
for every good thing.
Celebrate wonder,
hear the birds sing.

Smell every flower.
Dream every dream,
and nothing,
is ever,
as bad as it seems.

Life is The Spirit.
Essence of Light.
At one with Creation,
where all things are right.

River

There is a River, we call life, and God controls the flow.
Nothing we can really do, but let it be and so.
Other peoples choices, though we may view as wrong,
are just a way of learning,
the right notes to the song.
Nothing set in concrete, a journey to that place,
and on the way the value
of meaningful and Grace.
We can’t control the river, only let it flow
Do our part, touch a heart,
With Love, to help it grow.

---------------------------------
1 Corinthians 13,

'If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.'

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.'

I Believe



I believe,
In every good thing shining.
Clouds have silver lining.
Dancing in the rain.

I believe,
In sunshine after showers.
Love has all the power.
Morning comes again.

I believe,
In Grace for one another.
Holding up a brother.
Compassion when we fall.

and I believe,
Life is how you live it,
with Courage to forgive it,
and overcome it all.

Blind Faith


Some call it Blind Faith,
when we cant see tomorrow.
Refuse to step into
the quick sand of sorrow.
Defy giving up, defy giving in.
Dancing barefoot
to the music within.

All that we are,
is all we can be.
You being you,
and me being me.
Step away from the crowd
look to the soul.
With courage and will,
each find their goal.

Wear your best smile,
push away tears.
Be brave and bold
dust off all fears.
When life sends you lemons
go make lemonade.
Serve it to all
who still need the parade.

Some call it Blind Faith,
not giving in.
Dancing barefoot
to the music within.
Refuse to step into
the quick sand of sorrow.
Still loving today,
with all hope in tomorrow.

John 16:33,
'These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;I have overcome the world'.

Moonlight Swim


I swam beneath the moon tonight,
a thousand stars all shining bright.
Soft warm water rippled round,
and there, such perfect peace was found.

All the trials of the day,
gently floated far away.
None but crickets chirping low,
could steal the joy of letting go.

Just God, the moon, the night and I,
at One beneath a starlit sky.
