You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame

You were always there for me



Protecting me

And yet,

I took you for granted

Until one day.

I looked deep into your eyes

And you looked to my heart

And I gave it to you.


I was reborn!

When We Call


Who is your Jesus???  The question was  posed in a novel I am reading and combined with my devotional today and the Lord’s call to my heart, I must consider . . . seems to me Rick Luoni asked that once in a sermon in urging us to invite Christ into our lives and if you  know Fr Rick, he’s impossible to ignore on loving Jesus! 


The Word tells us “My light shines through you” and that is perhaps the greatest miracle of all!  I know I am weak  and broken yet  Jesus’ Word is Truth and regardless of my mess, Jesus shines through me through NO effort of my own but to say “yes” and give Him my heart.  I urge you to  invite Him in!




In The Beginning

Wee one,

as I look into your eyes

I hunger to see the world through them

as I once did!

I can almost feel

the long forgotten magic!

Finely feathered wisdom

Resting on a branch

In a fast-moving world filled with worry,

You know only peace.

The Child

Tiny fingers,

Tiny toes,

Filled with wonders

heaven knows.

Gently sleep my dear one.

You have changed my world.

A genuine love is found to own value
A vibrant kiss fills a life with zeal
An embrace is planned to be lasting
When its intent is found to be real

The usefulness of a blissful dream
Becomes much better when its shared
Words begin to have more meaning
As their soothing aroma fills the air

The need of pure love makes one realize
A hopeful prayer has finally come true
As a time comes when you hold them
In a real moment you never want to lose

What you perceived before as freedom
Was really a cold lonely empty cell
Because once you found your real love
It brings your life a constant thrill.

Sometimes all I can do is grip the cross. It is sufficient. Words are unnecessary. – Martha L Shaw​
