MY NEED FOR YOU

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Allow me each day to rise with a smile
As Your blessing of grace embraces me
Let my hearts love come to life in words
Yes in lovely heartfelt psalms of praise

Your love brings special assurances to life
More priceless than any worldly treasure
And each moment my spirit spends with You
Your love adorns me with lasting pleasures

I’m honored each day You allow me to rise
Especially as Your spirit leads me to write
Acknowledging the amazing gift blessings
You share with me each moment of my life

There will never be a time more precious Lord
Then when I awaken with thoughts of Your love
Inspired by the gentle embrace of Your Spirit
Reminding my heart why You are all I think of.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 16:5-11
You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I
need; my future is in your hands. How wonderful
are your gifts to me; how good they are! I praise
the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night
my conscience warns me. I am always aware of the
Lord’s presence; he is near, and nothing can
shake me. And so I am thankful and glad, and I
feel completely secure because you protect me
from the power of death. I have served you
faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the
world of the dead. You will show me the path that
leads to life; your presence fills me with joy
and brings me pleasure forever.

SPRING

Tags

, , , , , ,

A dream of love
Is how it started
One cold and lonely
November Day…

A thought and a prayer
That love would come
And in my world
Would always stay

And when it seemed
So very hopeless, with the
Coming of early spring

I found my dream to
Become a pleasant reality
When spring brought
Your priceless love to me.

(April 30, 1977)

THE FIRST TIME I CALLED YOUR NAME

Tags

, , , , , ,

The thought was of You
and how You cared enough
to give Your dear life a
sacrifice for me…

The thought was of You
and how You cared enough
to save my spirit from a
hellish eternity

The thought was of You
and how blessed I would
be without any worldly
riches or fame…

The thought was of You
when genuine joy came
alive the first moment I
called upon Your name.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 10:13
for, “Everyone who calls on the name
of the Lord will be saved.”

John 7:38
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture
has said, rivers of living water will
flow from within them.’

Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail, but
God is the strength of my heart and
my portion for ever.

WHAT YOU ARE TO ME

Tags

, , , , ,

You are the peace that
Lives within the center
Of a violent storm…

You are the light that
Fills the morning sky
As the sun rises at the
Break of dawn

You are the bliss
That makes birds to
Sing, as the sun takes
Its grand place on high

You are the love which
Lives deep within which
My Spirit needs each day
To survive…

For You are life to me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

THE LOVELINESS WITHIN

Tags

, , , , , ,

What I see each day reflected
Within your alluring smile as
You softly gaze my way

Locks itself deeply in every
Dream my mind has while never
Wanting to ever go away

For the passion and warmth which
Now fills my heart embraces it
In the most revealing of ways

That I can only lay claim to a
Special hope the loveliness of
Your smile will now always stay.

A PERFECT BLISS

Tags

, , , ,

The midnight stars gently embrace the moon
While the darkness softly caresses the sky
The wind cried out aloud in its loneliness
While peaceful sleep slowly envelop my eyes

And vibrant dreams gave birth to a new life
Where captive visions unleashed became free
To bathe in the brown deepness of your eyes
As dreams of you, helped me sleep peacefully

I need not reach out my hands to touch you
Because my love you lay sleeping close by
As a heavenly bliss embraces us from above
Placing a genuine serenity deep down inside

So when we awaken to greet the new morning
Finding the sun’s kiss embracing our lips
We will find while we slept throughout the night
His love filled our dreams with a perfect bliss.

I RATHER SEE

Tags

, , , , , ,

I rather see the painted sunrise
in breathtaking beautiful hues
awakening to bless the new break
of dawn

I would rather see a mother deer,
nursing so lovingly the apple of
her eye, the love of her heart,
her young frolicking fawn

I would rather see a flower
gently opening its petals waiting
to receive the embrace of a special
drop of sunshine within, which it
knows it daily needs

I rather sit below the sky seeing
how the clouds gently tease it ever
so lovingly and I rather hear the
sweet buzzing around the flowers
from the honeybees

I rather embrace a raindrop
after it splashes gently on my face
I rather see a day of peace
where all hurts and pains are released

I would love to see the abuse of women
end, seeing them treated and accepted
as equals to men, for they are the sweet
strength of our lives, which can perfect
within our hearts and minds a special new
heaven

I would rather never see a hand raised
unless it’s there to soothe the pain
I never want to see hurt inhabit
this world , only positive lasting change

I rather see the deep precious beauty
of a very special smile, one who has
learned to truly love another
bringing heavenly change in their
lives, so daily all the while

For I rather see us love each other
in a genuine precious way
So when we awaken tomorrow
we find all spirits to be the same

One love, one spirit one joy, one truth
with no pain.

A LOVE WHO WON’T LET ME BE

Tags

, , , , , ,

You light the fires deep within my heart
Causing tiny embers to become ablaze
Filling my world with Your love’s glow
While sweeping my love filled mind away

For every time Lord, that I pray to You
I find again my spirit starts to ascend
As I am touched by Your amazing grace
That in love, I now simply begin again

I started to always feel this way, Lord
That memorable day we first did meet
And like that day You have never changed
As Your love still sweeps me off my feet

And the flames of love are fanned daily
As they softly burn in my spirit deep
Know my Lord I am a willing servant
To the Holy One who will never let me be.

(One of my first written for God, 1971)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 8:38
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present
nor the future, nor any powers, neither height
nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS

Tags

, , , , , , ,

When I first saw your smiling face
That first time I felt its embrace
At that moment I began to believe
You would be the only one for me

Your image would daily enter my dreams
While filling my heart with pleasantries
Within came to life songs I would sing
About your loveliness, I would daily see

With each new awakening moment, I find
There is no place I would rather now be
Then living and enjoying life by your side
Thanking God for what He’s made to be

And the whole of me joyfully surrenders
All of what I am now, and soon will be
For I know each day with you in my life
How spiritually lovely it will always be…

Each day I’m blessed by your precious love!

MY DREAMS OF YOU

Tags

, , , , , , ,

My mind at night
Is full of you and
The sweet bliss
Which your love
brings

My dreams are of
Your lovely smile
And of the joy my
Heart daily sings

For you have made
A willing slave of
Me causing my heart
To dream of only you

So when my eyes close
To sleep each night
Dreams of you make
Restless nights so few.

(July 1977)
