In my heart and thus my life,

love is an instinct.

I was created by Love,

in the image of Love,

in love,

through love,

to love.

Many failures may befall me,


Love never fails!

New Living Translation
Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!



OUT OF THIS WORLD – Home Redefined

March 13, 2017

My home is the sun shining down on me

And filling my soul

With light.

My home is a song,

An echo from heaven

Which gives my spirit wings.

My home has neither roof nor walls.

It is your hand holding me close.

I sing.

I smile.

I soar.

Come . . .

I was in our special place.

I needed to ask . . .

but did not see you.

I called out,

sensing your nearness.waiting

There you were.

“Here,  my child,

I’ve been waiting”

The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

As the sun rose

Its warming rays touched my

Night cooled flesh

With the thrill of a new day!

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!

You NEVER Leave Me – or Give Up On Me

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.


This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear-frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.
