Strong Together


Two stand strong together
One of Chosen People
One of City on the 
Hill, side by side
Resolved, united, one
In heart and mind and soul
That peace may come; God's peace
To heal, and make us whole.

Festive Ribbon



Festive ribbon, sprawling red
Reminder of the blood once shed
By the One who bore our sin;
In manger, saw His life begin.
No wreath adorned nor sparkling tree
Could replicate this gift to me.
And yet, they point me to the Way
Of hope and faith; my guide, I pray.

Coming Home



The wind dies down
The cold abates
And God abides
My soul partakes
In His promise
Hope is new
In fallen leaf
In sunset's hue
The leaves as raindrops
Scatter-pat
Address with grace
Their autumn flat
Of residence
Finding home
Claiming home
Coming home

Fishers of Men



Like waves meeting shore
My thoughts crescendo, recede
Into His, once more
And my heart, wanton, longing
Knows it's met its match
That is grand beyond belief;
The Lord makes the catch.

Advent



One candle lit
Beginning
Of a welcome
Yet to be
Full of promise
Waiting hope
Hope in waiting
For the coming
Of our King

One Vagrant Cloud



One vagrant cloud
Above my head
Incites a rush
Of awe
Instead
Of staid
Too placid
Comfortable me
No other place
I'd rather be


Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your in the glory in the heavens . ~Psalm 8:1

Heaven's Poetry


Heaven's poetry
Etched in lives
Unworthy prone
To living lies
Heaven's prose
The realm of prayer
When hoping for
Heart made bare
Before the throne
Dreams come true
When all for me
Is all for you.

~Inspired by Ephesians 2:10
