WE ARE FOREVER ONE

Tags

, , ,

Love is blind, this we know
Love knows no boundaries
And it will never let go
Because of its enduring
legacy

When we were young
with our spirits eyes
We would always see
A true need for our
Love to be

And when we would share
many sweet moments together,
we knew we were Siamese
twins…real friends in love
and life…forever

And now as time is passing
so many years we cannot deny…
that the fires still steadily
burn brightly

And that their roots will
never die.

My God’s Endless love

Tags

unnamed-3patricia

He forgave me when
I believed I was
Unworthy

When by worldly sin
I was too crippled
To stand

He forgave me when I
Would not listen to
His voice

When from His presence
In the material world
I ran…

Yet my Lord, would never
Stop calling out to my
Heart

He never stopped calling
Me by my spirits given
Name

He saw the many tears
Which daily poured
From my eyes

At the moment when I
Genuinely began to
Understand

That the Lord never
Turned away from me
A single moment

Humbly turning to Him
I received the blessing
Of the great I AM…

He freed my disheartened
Soul which had once fallen
Far away

With his caring love in
My life allowing me to
Stand

Making me clean as He
Washed away remnants
Of my disgrace

Embracing me with his
Renewing power filled
With his grace

I know now as I walk
Along with my awesome
God

In His heaven, I will
Always have an endless
Place.

A LASTING PROMISE

To me Lord You are a gift of eternal sunshine
Which fills my world with its radiant light
You are the stars which shine brightly above
Lending their eternal brilliance to the night

You are the things I find my heart treasures
Especially those which make me smile each day
I alone know all the reasons I feel this way
Why I find my heart continually carried away

You forgave me my master and brought me home
To that special place from which I had strayed
You washed me Lord making me wholesomely clean
Providing a welcome place in your grace to stay

You forgave my sins which once had haunted me
Giving me a new chance to really begin to live
That day when you freed me from sinful bondage
With Your treasured words of love…I forgive.

(January 1, 1977)
(A Re-Blog)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matt:16:14-15
For if you forgive other people when they sin against
you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But
if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father
will not forgive your sins.

Psalm 32:5
Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover
up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my
transgressions to the LORD.” And you forgave the
guilt of my sin.

A PRECIOUS MOMENT

Tags

, , , , , ,

A moment finds a beautiful joy born
As it awakens each new morning to You
When the freshness of this day’s beauty
Brings Your lovely smile to shine through

And a new spiritual life now stimulates
My many rested feelings very deep within
As they restlessly sit alone waiting
For the embrace of your love to begin

The world each morning often seems empty
For many souls seemingly lost in a trance
As they never seek to embrace the blessings
Within the light of Your loves morning dance

Yet you Lord, provide the genuine breath of life
Inspiring me daily to bring forth a psalm to sing
As my heart is given many reasons to joyfully dance
Within the heavenly bliss, your presence brings.

(A psalm of joy for God)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 90:14 (NIV)
“Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days”.

FATHER’S DAY PSALM FOR GOD

Tags

, , , , , ,

I was not worthy to receive Your perfect love
Yet one day I was blessed by Your saving grace
As I was disfigured many times by worldly sin
I’m thankful for Your salvation I now taste

Not a perfect son who should receive any favor
When for my many sins in life I should have died
But I am made humble Lord by this love I received
The kind which makes tears fall freely deep inside

I am the example of what Your kindness can do
To one who embraces the living word they need
For in the past, I would never drink the pure water
Living in Your Spirit which each day now sets me free

Yet while still being a sinner and prodigal son
Who by your mercy and grace was led to the path
I pushed onward until I came to Your open door
Finding pure forgiveness which would always last

Now the words which my heart will express to You
Speaking humbly from my lips in a wholesome way
Is to tell how blessed my world has been made
Being counted as one of Your son’s this Father’s day.

For our Eternal Father
(Written June 1972 while at Crowder College)

(2 Corinthians 6:18
“And I will be a Father to you and you will be my
sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

A NEVER ENDING LOVE

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I think of you both always,
For you, are the two loves
Who daily accompany me while
The sun shines

Your spiritual essences are
What I feel, though I have
Counted the endless moments
Since you both have left my side

When I dream, you are the
Light that fills my mind
With the love, I yearn to
Feel, for my heart has been
So lonely and even time
Cannot wipe away my tears

When I am alone it is
Unbearable for me, but
Made bearable by the love
Of the One who now enjoys
Your laughter

Though I cry and miss your
Company, I cherish the part
Of both of You which still
Lives deep within my hearts
Memories

For you, both have not died,
But in passing, you have taken
A trip ahead of me, where I
Know that you both await me
With open arms

I was made better in my
Life and also stronger,
I endure because of the
power alive in the love
Which you both still share
With Me

And I feel your heartbeats
Still, when I lay alone in
My bed, sometimes feeling
Your kisses upon my cheeks

Finding even though you are not
Here I relish the memory of your
Your love as it comes alive in
My selfish dreams each day

Knowing you are away from me
For only a short time…until
We are together again in our
Father’s Heaven, my two wonderful
Sons, Madison and Ian Brown.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The passing of loved ones is one of
the toughest pains to endure. especially
children, this poem is for all of those
parents who have endured this pain. They
cannot come back to us anymore, but we
can go to them when our time comes. May
God’s peace become a continued mainstay
in your lives…forever.

Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, “Let the little children come
to me, and do not hinder them, for the
kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

A LASTING STAY

, , , , , ,

Lord, You make a day
much more beautiful,
each time You grace
it with Your smile

All the seconds, the
minutes, and hours
find their many life
moments to be very
worthwhile

As life finds a lovely
increase in its value,
When Your breath fills
my lungs each new day

For the awesome power of
love in Your spirit makes
each moment spent with
You a lasting stay.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 147:3
“Blessed be the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies
and God of all comfort, who comforts us
in all our affliction, so that we may
be able to comfort those who are in any
affliction, with the comfort with which
we ourselves are comforted by God”

Luke 1:78-79 “Because of the tender mercy
of our God, whereby the sunrise shall visit
us from on high to give light to those who
sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

FOR I SEE

Tags

, , , , , , ,

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 all of you 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,

I THINK OF YOU

Tags

, , , , , ,

The sun is bright the
leaves are green, I
think of you always
the lone vision in my
Dreams

I hear your voice alive
within soft and sweet,
I think of you quietly
as our eyes now meet

You say you love me
I say it too, I think
of you, a thought not
blue…I think of you..

As I feel the sweet
essence of your lips
my mind now fills with
such a tranquil bliss

Because all the thoughts
of you I think each day
will always make me feel
this very special way

For what I feel to be real
I shall have a great need
to exist in my life as my
one true love reality

And with each passing breath
released from my lips, I
realize each moment I will be
blessed by your kiss…

As the evening now comes
it brings a sweet song,
so beautiful of love
it could never be wrong

For though we might differ
a little in age, know that
true love is never measured
by the time of days

For selfless love becomes blind
as we magically together find
while we sit gazing lovingly
into each other’s eyes

In this beautiful evening
I find it to be very true,
my heart will never again
think of anyone other than
you

Clouds begin to pass over us
as it starts to softly rain,
I hear you lovingly sigh as
as your voice speaks my name

I feel your tender sweet love
alive deep in my mind, and the
entire whole of me within like
the stars above brightly shine

And the falling raindrops of hope
which fell upon us this night
have given us a sweet freedom as
we shared a treasured love’s light

For we found a perfect place
where our love shall always stay
and in this timeless moment
it simply will not fade

While deep inside our hearts
we will never ever lose
the love binding us together
as our eloquent crowned jewel

Knowing in the times to come
I will always think of you
And in your heart each day
you’ll feel the same way too

And as long as our hearts beat
A blossoming love will remain true
Each day within our shared lives
there will always be me and you.

TO MAKE HER MINE

Tags

, , , , , ,

After our first meeting
you went to your dorm
and I began to suffer from
the loss Of your presence

I could hear in my
mind, “where do we
go from here” as the
words began to haunt
my thoughts

I could not regroup
my emotions and the
moments became hard
to handle for they
moved so rapidly

…faster than the winds
of a hurricane

I felt inside of me a power
which now moved my heart
to miss your genuine beauty
and your smile

I grappled with this new
reality as a very special
need was now given birth

I did not know how to
express the feelings
which was now filling
my heart

For during our first
meeting I realized how
love was beginning to
have its way with me
blossoming because of
you

Yet, you went away that
afternoon and I thought
about my future hope…

That to have a true chance
I would have to set aside my
shyness, seizing the chance
before it was lost to me

Knowing I had to lay hold of
this beautiful gift and work
hard to make you mine.
(April, 1977)
