Your Word


Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”
Psalm 119


“The earth is replete with the fruits of your work, O Lord.”
Psalm 104

“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



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

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.


Holy, Holy, Holy

” Holy, holy, holy the Lord God almighty, who was and is and is to come.” (Revelations 4:8)

March Pansies in the Snow 2014

March Pansies in the Snow 2014


At the moment we are about to give up,
so weary of winter,
the earth begins to soften.
The last of the snow is melting
and tiny snow drops, crocuses and pansies begin to appear.
The earth embraces the melting snow,
accepting the life- giving water with open arms.
God, the immense holy one,
calls us back to his tender ever-present embrace.
My heart cracks open,
trembling like the pansies in the snow.
I long  to fall into this bottomless pool of love.
My God, touch me today with your presence.
