You color my world

in rain or glow of sun

and add music!

The Calling

July 21, 2014

I heard your voice

calling my name.

I answered “Yes!”

I rise,

and feeling your presence,

I soar.

Good Morning, Lord!

July 20, 2014

sunrise-md

I awakened early,

Snuggled deep into my soft pillow

And wrapped warmly in my quilt

I pretended it was still time for sleep.

As I lay cozy in my bed

You whispered lovingly to me

And I sighed, smiled, and whispered back.

Gazing lovingly,

I felt your arms holding me close

As you filled my heart with you

And I realized it was there

That I would forever stay,

Waking, sleeping,

It matters not

As long as you’re with me.

Suddenly,

The wake-up melody sounded

High in the sky

On distant branches of the tall tree

Outside my window

And I realize the sun was opening

Its sleepy eyes,

And so did I.

Listening to the sweet songbirds

I added my praise to theirs

As together we faced the day.

Walk In Faith

July 17, 2014

curtains bed

Gazing,

I see it’s time to get up

And I wonder what to do.

As the curtains flutter in the breeze,

I see you on the other side

Encouraging me to go on.

Answers will come.

Good Morning

July 8, 2014

curtains

Filtered light

Gently illuminating my once darkened room

Eases me into the new day.

I reach for the curtains

Then the cup,

But I do not reach for you

For I know you are holding me close.

I sip from the cup

Knowing that together

We face this new day.

I sigh.

I smile.

His Gifts

July 2, 2014

If  these were leaves

And I was five again,

I would leap into the air,

Land in a giggling heap of joy,

Then raise my arms in gleeful abandon

And do it all over again!

I just might anyway!

Just Dance!

June 25, 2014

just dance

I saw the others in the room

dancing to a tune I could not hear.

I stood aside,

I watched and sighed.

Wishing,

Wondering,

They seemed to share a joy

I didn’t know.

They seemed to know a love

I didn’t feel.

I waited in lonely silence.

Then, I could wait no more.

With awkward steps

I left my hiding place

And followed.

At first my steps

Were slow and few

But then it happened!

I began to hear the music, too!

The more I danced,

The less I considered my shaky feet

For I had found something else.

I discovered joy!

Beyond The Veil

For the Light costumed by darkness,

I thank you, Lord.

For the beauty I know but cannot see,

I thank you, Lord.

For the music I cannot hear yet still I dance

And thank you, Lord.

For your secret healing of my every need,

I thank you, Lord.

For living in this broken human’s heart,

I thank you, Lord.

For using me anyway,

All my love and thanks and praise to you.

Amen
