My Lord,He reaches to me every day
Giving my heart a song to sing
He lifts my spirit up in praise
Because He is my true everything

And even the days I might fall short
I will always find him very near
Because I know He loves me dearly
As He is always near to wipe my tears

My Lord is the true beauty of Nature
The loveliness of the seasons all
He’s the life which I breathe daily
His love is the reason I hear his call

He’s in the butterflies which dip and dive
The squirrels alive high up in the trees
In my daily life, he is truly everything
For He is alive in all which my eyes!

2 Chronicles 7:14-16
If My people, who are called by My name, will humble
themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and
will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now
My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the
prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and
consecrated this temple so that My name may be there
forever. My eyes and My heart will always be there.

Job 19:27
I myself will see [God] with my own eyes – I, and
not another. How my heart yearns within me!

Your beauty inspires me to write each day
About the love within your eyes I see
Which leaves my soul feeling breathless
For its sweet essence, I will always need

Whenever I find myself in your presence
I cherish each moment that comes to life
For every time I find you near to me
My mind fills with your alluring light

I am very proud to let my heart speak
Of the many feelings in my heart I feel
When you became my most valuable gift
Which from the deep parts none can steal

I will always have a deep longing for you
As each new morning, I embrace your smile
For you are the happiness alive within me
Which makes living my life so worthwhile

For you inspire me to write each new day
About the genuine selfless love my eyes see
Leaving me always wanting to share my life
With your amazing love, I will always need.

It brought tears to life within my eyes,
The kind which never seem to go away
Touching me deeply within my heart
In a lovely place, where his love stays

Because what His spirit joyfully brings,
Solidly puts in place a forever smile,
Which shines brightly as the morning sun,
Making a days birth become worthwhile.

When one does believe in our risen Lord
Deep within is born a new song to sing
As the one who believes is giving thanks
Feeling the grace loving him will bring

And if tears of sweet happiness fall daily
Then my sweet Lord it will just have to be
For my heart is full of your embracing love
That I want all living in the world to see

There is a wonderful joy which can be theirs
As they open their eyes to this life each day
A pure genuine love who will never leave them
Because in His embrace they will safely stay.

Philippians 4:11-13
Not that I am speaking of being in need,
for I have learned in whatever situation
I am to be content. I know how to be
brought low, and I know how to abound.
In any and every circumstance, I have
learned the secret of facing plenty and
hunger, abundance and need. I can do all
things through him who strengthens me.

If you follow me I will lead you
To a peace, you’ve never known
If you, follow me I will take you
To a place where no evil goes

For a new heart will I give to you
With a beautiful new song to sing
I will do all these things for you
My beloved, if you follow me

If you follow me you will be blessed
With a true treasure of endless days
Follow me and you will be spiritually
Rich while your loneliness will fade

A new spirit, I will place inside you
So your eyes will now believe and see
That there will be a lasting peace
Which in your spirit daily comes to be

Follow me and I’ll crumble your heart
So it will no longer be made of stone
I will walk with you wherever you go
So in this life, you are never alone

If you follow me I will give to you
A new heart which is made of flesh
You will come to know a heavenly love
With its inspiration and happiness

Choose to follow me and I’ll come to you
With my spirit making your heart its home

Blessing you with the strength to overcome

Your heart each day will seek to emulate
The selfless way I lived my life each day
And I will keep you mine, my beloved
While my grace in your life daily stays

If you follow me you’ll keep my judgements
Making my love the treasure of your heart
And you will daily have a great need of me
Never wanting my spirit from you to depart

You’ll become a blessing to those who seek
A new beginning in their lives each day
If you follow the Lord God of Your Fathers
You’ll help another find the true life-way.

John 5:25
Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, the time
approaches, and is now here, when the dead will
hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who
hear it will live.

I have loved you
And you may ask
How have I loved

For I live each day
With a silent goal
To only make you

I am empowered
By my happiness
To bring your face
To smile…

I sometimes cry
Shedding tears
For fear that you
One day might

And I cherish
All the moments
With you whether
The best of times
Or the worse…

For life is not perfect
And I know that you
Also will not be…

But close to perfection
You are in many things
And I find it exciting…

For I have truly loved
You, not only yesterday
Not only today, but I will
Love you with the birth
Of each new tomorrow…

Continuously with all my heart!

(Written the day after our son Ian passed)

A smile has so much
beauty my love, when
it gently adorns your

With a glow which is
found to be sister to
the sun’s soft radiant

For such joy is found
to be within this
enchanting smile I daily

For what really makes it
to be very special is you
smile each day for me

And only the very best
ingredients will make
your smile continually
shine bright

For the radiance found
within your smile can
even light the darkest
sky found at night

Because a smile will
always have so much
beauty for the naked
eye to see

If the smile belongs
to my one true love
who daily smiles her
smile for me.

Wanted to make my wife smile
tonight the way she makes me
each day!

If you allow my love to
enter then the fear will
will surely go away

The doubt which tries to
creep in as a genuine love
seeks now to stay

If you let my love enter pass
the invisible walls which you
have set in place

Then nothing will hinder the
beginning progress of a loves
sweet tender grace

Allowing you to embrace the
enchanting magic of hope which
brings to your life a taste
of lasting bliss

Opening the entrance to your
heart wherein lies the beauty
of a lovely soul to kiss

You will begin to taste
how wonderfully beautiful
love will cause each day in
your life to be

As your world fills with this
priceless blessing of joy which
from your life will never leave

For this moment of perfect joy
was predestined, to taste of a
love’s beginning breaths

Because within our hearts we
both prayed to God asking
that we would never receive
anything less…

Then a genuine selfless and
breathtaking love.

My God, your God has
set You over all creation
That is found in Heaven
and on the earth below

The stars bow down
to their beginning
and the moon knows
your hands…

The birds sing of your
glory and the animals
in the fields fear you
not, for they know
your love

They know you are God
their beloved creator
and that your God has
set you above all living

Providing the life breath
of the Holy spirit who
will guide us on the right
paths with his wisdom, and

And whether here on earth,
or in heaven above, you
Lord, alone are worthy to
be praised endlessly by all
living things…

Always knowing they
glorify Your Father
also as they do.

Psalms 145:10
All your works praise you, LORD; your
faithful people extol you.

Psalm 103:22
Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere
in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul.

With the beginning of each new day
There is a presence I cannot ignore
There’s a genuine calling to my spirit
And with the calling comes much more

I seek out your word in the morning
Before my loved one’s eyes awaken
For your word is life to me, dear Lord
Wanting in my life not to be forsaken

Of your presence as I start my day
I want always to be a part of you
As I pray and eat, of your living word
So I might accomplish all I seek to do

As I face the things that come my way
Meeting the world’s many problems head on
I know your love will deeply inspire me
And with your grace, I can do no wrong

I praise you Lord for always blessing me
Allowing my spirit to commune with you
Knowing daily as my spirit reaches to you
You’ll be there reaching out to me too.
Deuteronomy 4:29
“But if from there you seek the Lord your God,
you will find him if you seek him with all
your heart and with all your soul”.

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no

Can you pray to Me speaking honestly
That in your heart you truly love Me?
When you hate your brothers and sisters
I cannot see how this has come to be

Can you tell Me that you love Me
when in your heart I alone do see
the hatred which you hold for others
with such a true flagrant animosity

For I created you both in my image
hoping one day you might believe
that each time when you look at them
it is my image you will really see

Look deeply into the looking-glass
through which only your eyes can see
Seeing the dark sin alive in your heart
that is so very far away from Me…

Review all the lies, the hatred, the evil
which by your own doing your heart breeds
then tell me as you view your sinfulness
that your heart is full of love for Me
…for I see.

Hebrews 4:13
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight;
everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes
of Him to whom we must give account.

2 Corinthians 4:6
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”
made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light
of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face
of Christ.”

Acts 3:19
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may
be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from
the Lord,
