Christmas Always

Christmas is here,

Always in our heart.

Christmas is near;

Don’t set it apart.

Keep the love living.

The tree may disappear,

But keep on Christmas giving.

Keep spreading Christmas cheer.

Life’s partner!

twenty years ago

and saved

until at eighty

she ran out

of room to save

no room for more

no room to live

all that stuff

drowned her

Stop!

Live!

Give!

i tried to be

a sister saver.

Really,

i tried.

The Sounds of Silence

THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE

 

Silence is resounding in my ears.

Silence wipes away confusion and fears.

Silence speaks as all nature rings.

Silence breaks as songbird sings.

 

Silence whispers compassion’s song –

Let’s me contemplate yesterday’s wrong.

Allows God’s grace to fill this space

Instead of wallowing in my own disgrace.

 

Silence brings new life to God’s Word.

It lets the Holy Spirit speak and be heard.

It opens my heart to name the nameless

And enter their world blameless and shameless.

 

Open my heart, Lord, in silence to know

All that You’re saying, all that You show

Through challenges booming or hugs soft and sweet.

Help me to hear You in ALL that I meet.

Need


hands-circle

Need

We need each other.

We need to

Lean and support

Relate and respond

Give and take

Confess and forgive

Reach and embrace.

Nobody is a whole

Orchestra.

We need each other.

Room for Three


C580ACC9-CB5B-4BEE-9B37-926C9A937F12

Up in my Angel Room,

Also known as my sanctuary,

I have three rocking chairs –

One for you, one for your friend,

And one for me.

Won’t you take a break

From the world’s constant roll

And come sit awhile?

Join the peace and quiet, and

Find rest for your soul!
