As I silently awaken to mornings call
My mind fills with thoughts of you
Of all the things which you do for me
Through your love, that stays so true

I realize each day that all you do
Is only for the betterment of me
To make me Lord grow stronger
So I will always depend on thee

And I do not wish for anything more
But to blossom daily before your face
As I become a fruitful child of yours
Who daily welcomes your loving embrace

So tomorrow there will always be
Inside a desperate need of thee
So in the morning as the sun rises
The brilliance of your love I’ll see

For life becomes a treasure at its best
When my daily blessings come from you
For only you can listen to my prayers
And each day make them all come true.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the
Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will
be like a tree planted by the water that
sends out its roots by the stream. It does
not fear when heat comes; its leaves are
always green. It has no worries in a year
of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

I shall wait for you

a more fulfilling
and wholesome life

your coming, that I
may see your face and

For I know it will
surely happen one
day and I will wait

eagerness, of heart

Because of your gentleness,
your sweet grace, and
the lasting peace only you

Lord Jesus, I wait for you
to one day lead me into your
eternal kingdom where you will
reign forever.

Psalms 130:5-6
“I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his
word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than
watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for
the morning.”

Isaiah 30:18
Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy
to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed
are all those who wait for him.

Shall my heart not look
to you with each heartbeat,
with each waking breath
which finds life within

Shall my eyes climb upon
the wings of heavenly
winds, seeking to reach
your abode

Shall I not hunger for you
dearly and deeply, in
spiritual places that few
come to really know

My spirit shall hunger daily
for your spirits understanding
and wisdom to enlighten me

For yes, I shall always seek
your grace and love to fill my
life with its abundant spiritual
beauty throughout my days

Along with Your wonderful
creations, which astound my
eyes with many endearing
living beauties sharing my

Yes I shall always seek You
for the blessings which only
you send my way each day to
enrich my life’s path…

For you, Lord, are my true
love, and God, and you will
always be my eternal treasure.

Psalm 104:33
I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will
sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Psalm 5:11
But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy; And may You
shelter them, That those who love Your name
may exult in You.

You are the sweetness of my life
The lovely radiance of my smile
You are the wholesome love I need
Who makes my life so worthwhile

When You are very close to me
Only You can make my heart feel
Like I did when I first met You
When my life became truly ideal

No moments have I seen come to pass
In our relationship that I can trace
Where I have not loved You ardently
In such a variety of beautiful ways

For You are the sunshine of my life
The true happiness I will always need
And my life would be very crippling
Without Your sweet love a part of me.
Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no
longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life
I now live in the body, I live by faith in
the Son of God who loved me and gave himself
for me.

Hebrews 1:3
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the
exact representation of his being, sustaining
all things by his powerful word. After he had
provided purification for sins, he sat down at
the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

As water rolls down the mountain side
Finding it way back to a stream
So I retraced my steps I took back then
To my early beginnings, I had with thee

I remember like it was only yesterday
When I first embraced the love you bring
How I felt my mind floating in the clouds
As my life filled with spiritual realities

Everything which I thought I could be
You made within me to be so much more
That day when Your hands embraced me
Receiving me Lord as a child of yours

And that special moment will never fade
As each new day, my spirit is lifted still
For your grace and love lives deep in me
Always giving my heart a constant thrill.

Nehemiah 9:20
“You gave Your good Spirit to instruct them, Your
manna You did not withhold from their mouth, And
You gave them water for their thirst.

Mark 10:18
Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked him. “Nobody
is good except for one… God.

Lost to my eyes is the morning sun
When to this day I now arise
Dark clouds hovered high above
As rain showers shared my skies

My world was so sad and lonely
With my heart much like this day
For you are far away from me
Yes so far from where I now lay

It is really hard for me to begin
Facing the sadness of this new day
When usually It starts with a smile
The one which takes my breath away

And I find its so very hard to do
Getting myself ready to go to work
For I am always greeted by your smile
But loneliness close to me now lurks

Its tentacles quietly try to entrap me
Placing its many wares into my mind
Though I try to overcome sad thoughts
I find myself overwhelmed over time

Lost to my eyes is your priceless smile
This cold day when from our bed I arose
That even Shakespeare could never capture
My mood, in sweet succulent lines of prose.


There were times where our jobs would keep us
apart for short times, she would be TDY, and I
would be mister mom, with our daughter, but when
two are close, that would bring alive many sad
lonely moments. But that always made the
returning embrace more wonderful.

So lonely are the passing hours to me
Since we are now so very far apart
Misery showers my thoughts and dreams
Leaving my heart in a place lonely and dark

Sadness daily parks its presence near
Seemingly so very close, so deep within
While the sunset surrounds me like a cell
Keeping the awful pain in my heart locked in…

I knew it would soon come to be one day
A time when you would have to go away
I thought I was prepared for this moment
But I’m so lost without any words to say

As the feelings seem a natural part of things
During these quiet moments while I am alone
And the beauty of this lovely Hawaiian sunset
Won’t remove the loneliness from our home

Tonight try to imagine in your heart and mind
What I am going through while you are away
Know my heart anxiously awaits your return
Assuring lovely Hawaiian sunsets again will stay.

You died for my sins,
While I was yet a sinner,
You washed the darkness

You came to me while
I was impure, You came
To me, and you alone
Made me clean

You gave me a new hope
Of brighter days, when
You allowed me to eat of
Your living bread

You brought me life,
And wholesome was this
New beginning, when I
Was no longer counted
Among the world’s
Spiritual dead

You died for my many
Sins showing me a true
Love which embraced my
Spirit, teaching me

What life will be like
Each day when it’s shared
With your grace and love
Which now sets me free

Genuine and selfless
Moments now give birth
To a special joy deep

The moment of acceptance
When one truly turns to
You, causing a new life
To now blossom and begin

Happens when one chooses
The path leading from
Darkness and awakens to
Make the choice to enter
Into Your light

If I am to be like You
I must learn to humble
Self and share with others
The grace which fills my
Life with delight

There are many needing the
Soulful nourishment in their
Lives which sets true seekers
Of your amazing grace free

I thank You for this
Life blessing and the
Priceless spiritual
Kiss of Your amazing
Love which I need…

And know from this day
Forth You are the only
One, whom my heart and
Spirit will be thinking

And each new day my prayers
Will glorify the greatness
Of the One true Living God.

(Written 1972)

grace you have been saved—

Your word is the living water
Of my soul each morning I drink
From your well that it may be
Refreshed abundantly

I seek the place of many who
Served before me that I too
Might find heavenly peace in
The deep places in my mind

I hunger to digest your word,
Letting its living essence feed
And nourish my spirit so I may
Become more productive serving

You gave my life its beginnings
I can never turn away from the life
Which the reality of Your grace and
Love brings alive daily, for without
It I would become spiritually dead

You are my only God and no other
Shall know or have a place in my
Heart before you, for you, are my
Life’s greatest treasure

I live and breathe your breath of life
Because you have allowed your humble
Servant, this sweet blessing to dress
My life each day

May your name be praised daily by
Every living being who is lifted
And inspired by the vibrant power
Of your divine love.
Psalm 119: 9-16
How can a young person live a clean life?
By carefully reading the map of your Word.
I’m single-minded in pursuit of you; don’t
let me miss the road signs you’ve posted.
I’ve banked your promises in the vault of
my heart so I won’t sin myself bankrupt.
Be blessed, God; train me in your ways of
wise living. I’ll transfer to my lips all
the counsel that comes from your mouth;
I delight far more in what you tell me
about living than in gathering a pile of
riches. I ponder every morsel of wisdom
from you, I attentively watch how you’ve
done it. I relish everything you’ve told
me of life, I won’t forget a word of it.

Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation
of my heart be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock, and my redeemer.

Lord you inspire me each new day to write
Of the wonderful love from you I receive
You bring my heart to constantly think of
Its true blessing which I will always need

Its beautiful pure essence my eyes see daily
As I gaze at creation as the sun does rise
Finds my soul moved by a very deep affection
For the dear love whose radiance fills my eyes

I am proud to let my heart speak the words
Which your Spirit has inspired me to write
Reminding me how deeply I feel for your love
As its blessing of grace nourishes my life

You inspire me to share endearing messages
Of this magnificent love I am blessed to know
Bringing a stirring to life of lovely emotions
Which my heart and spirit shall never let go.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is
wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day
by day. For this light momentary affliction is
preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond
all comparison, as we look not to the things that
are seen but to the things that are unseen. For
the things that are seen are transient, but the
things that are unseen are eternal.

Psalm 136:26
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his
steadfast love endures forever.
