Forgiveness

 

He bore the cross

To pay for our sins

And what have we

Done since then?

We covet and kill

And pray to another

In the temple of money

We kneel!

But hope is not lost

He still believes

In the people we

Could become.

Ask for the sight

To see what is true

And pray that our God

Is forgiving.

Quiet Peace

I rise in the morning

The sun still asleep

The moon has gone

From the sky

The cars are not growling

The sidewalks are clear

Even the birds still slumber

No cars horn are beeping

No shouting or calling

The rings of the phones

Are still silent

No planes overhead

No dogs underfoot

I can hear the beat of my heart

The breeze moves my hair

And kisses my cheek

And all is right with the world.

Conversations with God

I am not a religious person

I don’t know what that means

But I do like to have a chat

It’s not what all it seems.

Father dear who art in Heaven

Please hear the words I pray

Times are hard, I need you

I need you please to stay.

My gentle child I hear you

Each breath and sigh you make

I am never far you see

With every step you take.

I weep in sadness for what I see

My heart is heavy too

But I will watch and guide you

In everything you do.

I am a religious person

I know all what that means

I will carry on Your work

For all is as it seems.

In The Arms of My Father

 

His gentle arms embrace me

He touches my eyes to see

His gentle push a reminder

Of the person I need to be

 

He sees in me a value

A wealth beyond compare

I do not see it yet myself

With Him perhaps I’ll dare

 

The road I travel now this day

With guidance from above

Is all I need to do my best

Because it’s done with love

 

I pray one day I will reside

Within that heavenly realm

Peace and love and goodness

When our Father’s at the helm
