Poetry

Sight No eye has seen, no ear has heard, The reward for those who trust the Word. Brightness like the sun, color of springtime flower buds The ripple of wind against the water, Arms that hold us, our Heavenly Father Skin soft peach, stars that we cannot reach, twinkle of lights at night Chatruse moss, cyan sky, magenta sunsets in …

Poetry

Dreams Joseph’s dreams sheaves of grain They all strain down, but cannot see Moons and stars circle round Fall before him at the ground A well of sorrow, a pit of disdain Lost to Egypt, his death they proclaim Servanthood, sufferings is this a dream. Will I wake from what I have seen. Is my name not Joseph, son of ...

Poetry

Bare Feet Burning in my back, sweat soaked sheets. Painful day repeat. Children screams, then children smiles. Parenting is worthwhile. Each day mercy comes with the sun. Dare to hope braces become beautiful. Ice will quench the fire, time will restore. The healer will strengthen. Moments of childhood delight. Bare feet on a November day. Pink striped, purple streaked, blue …

Eastern Light

Ezekiel 43: Then he led me to the gate, the gate facing east. 2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory.

Life and Death of a Greenhouse

Powder white Feathery soft Specks of dirt No dots of depletion Bugs invade hide Lay eggs at night Spreading breeding Covered while reading Infestation insult Fear, worry, destruction Toss it all, tear it up Look away, tears build up Like manna that rots We cannot hold on To plants, flowers endless spring But….. Thank you for the sunshine For breaks …

Worship, Waiting, Work

Called to all three Worship, waiting, work Worship perhaps the clearest Though not the easiest Worship, honor adoration Prayer, devotion, supplication. Worship is discipline. Waiting for food, waiting for time, Waiting for our Saviors return divine. Waiting, interruption or rest? Pause, hault, break or respite. Waiting equals rest. Working has a drudgery beat Assumed to break backs and knees Working, …

Pathway

Conditioning my soul Preparing my mind To look ahead To forget what’s behind I see the pattern now It took me so long To recognize recovery To sing a new song Setback, despair, pain Grips, seeps, shocks When the surprise settles Satan knocks Lock the door Reach out for help Prayer from friends My being melts Weeping, wailing Resting, releasing …
