Treasure Hunt

We search high and low,

seeing everything

and finding nothing.

Frowning becomes moaning

as we steal the joy from other hearts

and toss it away in disgust.

The challenge will never be met

lest we realize the Truth.

What we seek is already within us!

Are You Looking For Me?

February 18, 2015

Quietly I wait

Longing to be touched.

My heart and soul yearn for you

With an ache I cannot describe,

But there is a hole deep within me

That only your love can fill.

Will you find me

Before my days are done?

broken hearted


April 22, 2013

Feeling:  the general state of consciousness considered independently of

particular sensations, thoughts, etc.

Knowing:  shrewd, sharp, or astute.

Rely on what you feel or what you know?  You decide.


Joy Unmasked?

October 28, 2012

The mask he wore


The sadness underneath.

Its bright colors,

Its painted smile,

Portrayed a joy

Not known

Yet hungered for.

He wandered about


Without finding it

For the answer was never outside

But held captive within his soul all along

Just waiting to be set free.

I pray he finds it.

Not Lost . . .

June 10, 2012

Ever find yourself feeling lost?  You know how sometimes the fear sets in . . . where to go?  Which way to turn?  Ever realize, as I have, that when you let go of the fear you suddenly see the solution is STARING AT YOU and has been ALL ALONG? 

Do you feel that way right now?  The answer has a name.  JESUS is the answer . . . He’s right there and in it with you.  Take a deep breath . . . open the eyes of your heart .  . . He’s been reaching out to you and you just need reach out to Him.  He loves you.  Listen.  You’ll hear Him say so . . .
