You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame

HOLEY WHOLY HOLY – BLANKETED IN HIS LOVE

April 27, 2017

When I was very small  I had a green blanket on my bed.  To anyone but me, it was nothing special at all.  After I had it for a while, it was full of holes, but Mama knew not to replace it.  As I tried to sleep at night, I would suck my fingers on one hand and hold my green blanket with the other, all the while rubbing the fuzz with my fingers.

 

Poor Mama must have constantly swept my bedroom floor of all the fuzz and my special blanket was surely less warm than it had been . . . to Mama.  Not to me, for my heart was reminded of how much I was loved and how safe I was simply by being wrapped in it.

 

The blanket was not magic and Mama, though neither she nor I could truly know my heart, left it with me until I outgrew it.  I know now, but not then, that there is just one source for the love I felt and that God is the source. He was also the one who knew my heart then as now.  I am older now and do not need the blanket, but the little girl I was  still lives inside me and she STILL  feels blanketed in Abba’s love.

 


OTHER WORLDLY DESIRE

Defining Passion

 faithful

I quake in your presence

All the day long,

though I feel no fear.

You fill me

Body,

Mind,

And spirit,

Yet I hunger for more of you.

Awake . .  .  asleep,

In darkness or  light

Your face I see,

But my quest for you is,

In this world,

Without end.

Love transcends the veil.

LENTEN THOUGHTS

February 13, 2016

 

fire

Were You Thinking of Me?

As I sit around the fire

Warming and weaving

Stories and memories with my friends,

My thoughts drift to you

And I wonder . . .

As you sat about the fire

With the twelve

Yet knew what was coming,

Were you thinking of me?

I believe.

Thank you.

Dancing In The Spirit

April 27, 2015

As I rest in your embrace

your immeasurable outpouring of love

makes my spirit dance and sing

as I bask in your glory.

Together,

there is nothing we can’t do.

I am yours.
