I Cannot Stop Singing His Praise!

August 22, 2018


A JOYFUL SERVANT

August 20, 2018

Sometimes . . .

You have to listen really closely

To hear the music in the silence.

But, once you hear it,

Your heart will never forget its voice.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE

August 20, 2018

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.

. . . And the sheep know His voice!

August 3, 2018

The Lord spoke to my soul!

He often lovingly whispers, but this time He called out victoriously to my soul and this was His message which I must share!

SHINE

Get up and dance!

Do you not hear the glad sound?

Have you not seen the sun?

Is the splendor of this day lost to you?

Place your feet on the floor!

Lift your hands!

As the trumpet sounds

Sail across the floor in harmony with me!

Dance, clap, sing, share!

I am yours!

You are mine!

Is this not cause to celebrate?

SHINE!

THE VIOLIN

July 31, 2018

It began . . .

An ordinary day.

Then

I heard the sounds of peace and passion.

A duet that at once caught my breath

while also wrapping me in streams of gold.

My heart . ..my soul

Were fed as never before.

Should I dance or cry or laugh

Or indulge

In a banquet

Of all three

and more.

Music so sweet and gentle

Then suddenly it grew in magnitude

And repainted the landscape.

A love

Indescribable

Wrapped in a bow.

DON’T MISS OUT!

July 19, 2018

Poetry

and beauty

are everywhere!

They travel hand in hand . . .

To live

with open eyes and open hearts

is all we require!

It’s your choice!

Sacred music plays

Yet others fail to listen

Oh my soul dances

THE SECOND VERSE

July 2, 2018

Oh darkness,

you cannot hide

my seemingly elusive joy.

For,

in my heart exists the Lamp

to guide me to it

So I will sing on!

He Is PATIENT!

June 28, 2018

He isn’t really being slow about his promised return, even though it sometimes seems that way. But he is waiting, for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.

2 Peter 3:9

As achild I was taught “God is great – God is good,” then I grew up and too often have prayed “where ARE you?”  You know what?  Both prayers are alright!  He desires a relationship!  DON’T FORGET TO LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!
