“Let my mouth be filled with your praise that I may sing aloud,my lips shout for joy, when I sing yo you.” Psalm 71

“The Lord Will Be Passing By”

“After the wind there was an earthquake-but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire – but the Lord was not in the fire.  After the fire, there was a tiny whispering sound. ” 1 Kings 19: 11-12

the stillness of morning
a water lily
the soft color captures me
i want to touch the silence

Do Not Worry

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”  Matthew 6:25

blooming flowers everywhere 
the color of a soft breeze
 my heart gathers strength for the journey
comforted by the scent of  purple

God’s Voice Within

on the breeze

my desire
a morning scented rose
for you, beloved

Whenever You Pray

“Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.”  Matthew 6:6

 Morning Surprise

Morning Surprise

****
The invitation is 

to meet God in silence,
deep in my own heart;
He patiently waits for me
to open the door to his word
and to sit quietly 
letting it soak into my being,
there are many doors to close on my way to this 
sacred place where God waits for me.
Today, I close the door on guilt and worry.
Jesus , I desire the grace to
 open the door to the compassion that resides in my heart ,
to the place where you abide.

Heavy Rains

“In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

****

thoughts bombard me
like heavy rain pounding the roof,
slowly my mind clears
the clouds float away
taking my cares.

the Sun breaks through
and there comes a moment of rest
an awareness of God’s presence
my thoughts are suspended
sparkling in the sunlight

the Sun holds them outside of me;
inside, there  opens up
a spaciousness that vibrates
with peace.
Here in your presence, I find joy.
