Glorifying Your Name



, , ,

You are the new sun that rises
Blessing my day with its bliss
I feel such happiness come alive
As I dream of your spiritual kiss

You stood by me after my accident
Making sure Lord that I would heal
You allowed my heart to feel such joy
Because your love is so very real

My Lord you have kept me very close
Never letting my heart to ever stray
You blessed me each new morning
Allowing me to daily praise your name

Forgive me the times my mind slips
The many times when I do bring alive
New psalms of love praising you anew
Inspiring so many in their daily lives

For you alone Lord are the only one
Who fills my heart and spirit with joy
And I will happily pen my best to you
The soulful psalms my spirit employs glorify your precious name.

Wendell A. Brown
Psalm 86: 12-13
I will praise you, Lord my God, with
all my heart; I will glorify your name
forever. For great is your love toward
me; you have delivered me from the
depths, from the realm of the dead.

Seek out Gods mercy in the morning
Daily embrace His ever-present joy
Always hunger for His living word
That its richness you may employ

Seek his living power each new day
From his presence never seek to flee
As each moment is filled with his wisdom
While in true earnestness you believe

The Holy Spirit within seeks to teach you
Leading you to walk the narrow pathway
You’ll limit ways you stumble in your lives
While spiritually growing in better ways

Make time to earnestly pray with the Lord
His time is the greatest gift one can receive
Along with His gems of love and inner peace
True spiritual gifts you’ll never seek to leave.

Jeremiah 29:12
You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.

Loving You Is A Blessing


, , , ,

You are the beauty my eyes greet

The joy which caresses my soul

You’re the one whom I deeply love

The one whose love I’ll never let go

Your smile brings life to my face

With its lovely endearing embrace

Your beauty sweeps my breath away

By its bliss that’s never displaced

Truly you are one of a kind my dearest

A precious jewel whose value never fades

And I will forever love and honor you

Because with you my hearts love will stay

And I will never ever love another

After falling so deeply in love with you.

A Smiles Unspeakable Joy


, , , ,

The moments which are shared
With you in my life each day
Brings such a joy and happiness
With a lasting peace which stays

Your enchanting smile brings alive
An inspiring time which is so real
Giving birth to a heavenly gift
A genuine smile I know you adore

I am captured by your loveliness
Praying to God in my life it stays
That I may awaken to your smile
As the morning sun blesses our day

Like a new lovely flower blooming
Blessing one's eyes with its joy
Each morning I find I am blessed
With your smiles unspeakable joy.

(For Deborah Ann, my wife.)



, , , ,

In times of drought sustain me
Times of little faith take my hand
When It seems I cannot go on
Give me shelter where I can stand

When my eyes become so dreary
Feeling at times my heart will break
When my world seems to fall apart
Please take me to your holy place

Lord, why have so many forgotten
Where their breath of life comes from
The One who has power in his hands
A true God whose days are never done

Mankind embraces many things in life
Worshiping worldly objects every day
Chasing after them with open arms
Never calling upon he alone who saves

Only believing in what they can see
Those created things which will fade
But soon many will unhappily find
An unexpected ending to their days

Never realizing who exists nearby
An open door who provides true life
If only they could remove the blinders
Which each day imprisons their eyes

If only they took a moment in their day
To ponder what his living word does say
Only then will their lives truly blossom
As their hearts move toward the only way

For there is freedom from all that is lifeless
Those created things they embrace and see
If humans truly reach for his sure salvation
From their sins they will now be set free.

Wendell A. Brown
John 3:16-18
For this is the way God loved the world: he
gave his one and only Son that everyone
who believes in him should not perish but
have eternal life. For God did not send his
Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world should be saved through
him. The one who believes in Him is not
condemned. The one who does not believe
has been condemned already, because he
has not believed in the name of the one and
only Son of God.

New Freedom

There will be a time soon to come
When in this world we no longer stay
A time where we will be happy
Where his angels show us the way

Trust in your Lord God’s promises
As he’s prepared a place for you
The time of pure joy will soon come
As your spirit embraces His grace anew

No more pain or suffering will exist
As you’re free from your dying flesh
You’re dressed in a new spiritual body
While your life with Him is blessed

Our Lord will receive you with His love
A lasting reward for your daily faith
As your precious new moment comes alive
Past family, and friends you will embrace

…as your new life begins!

John 14:1-3
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe
in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s
house are many rooms. If it were not so,
would I have told you that I go to prepare
a place for you? And if I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come again and will
take you to myself, that where I am you
may be also.

Deep Longing


, , , , , , , , , , ,

As the grass each day needs the fallen rain
I need you my Lord in my life much more
As the clouds need to embrace the sky above
I need to hold you so much more I am sure

What might a bee be without sweet honey
Or a barren tree lost without any leaves
Or an ocean without blue splashing waves
Without you I'm a struggling ship lost at sea

What would paradise be without heaven
Or our liveslife in this world without our God
For those things would all be meaningless
Without the miraculous touch of his love

For I would be like a flower not tasting rain
Or the midnight sky without a stars shining light
For without Your warm tender love beside me
Living my life could never again be right\

For as  the grass each day needs the fallen rain
And as the sky needs the clouds to embrace
I will always have a lasting  need in my life
Every day to  receive the smile from your face
My trust is in you alone my Lord
I shall rest in a nightly peaceful 
Sleep, for you are true life to me!

To Be Forever Mine


, , , ,

Each day I always seek to find
New words to dress your days
To let you know how I love you
In so many wonderful ways

Each moment I think of you lord
Brings alive a lovely blushing smile
Because You chose to share your life
Making my life so very worthwhile

Many search their lives for treasures
Which they pray to last their lifetime
With your spirit inside me its a pleasure
With Him on Your living bread I'll dine 

Please know Lord you are that treasure
Which daily makes my life so complete
When each moment in life I'm lifted
By the true blossoming love I'll always
Seek be forever mine. 

Jude 1:21 KJV

"Keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus
Christ unto eternal life."

The Beauty


The beauty of your smile
Daily illuminates my soul
It touches the deepest parts
Filling me with a taste
Of its bliss

I often wonder where I would
be in my life if you did not
accept my proposal to love you
to the end of time

You made each moment of
each new day to blossom
joyfully producing happy

And I thanked you and God
for the genuine love which
embraces my heart each day

…provided by you two for
I could never live without
Both of you




, , , ,

The blessing of my secret
dream is the beauty found
alive deep inside her love

The magic which makes a
day so much better is the
warm touch my heart daily
dreams of

The bliss which I feel
that caresses my soul
leaves my heart within
with such genuine peace

And the magnificent beauty
Of holding her close in my
dreams is a treasured pleasure
I will always seek to keep.
