Happy New Year!

Dear friend,
As this new year begins
may our hearts
lift to heaven…

May we pray for
‘peace’
that spreads
from our homes
to our cities
to our nations?

May we pray for
‘joy’
that enriches our lives
and overflows to
to all we encounter?

May we pray for
‘love’
that embodies
tolerance, acceptance,
forgiveness, understanding
and most importantly
the gentle, kindness of Christ?

As we begin
this new year
may we pray for
‘blessings’
that only come from God?

My dear friend,
may we pray?

Red Land 7

Red Land 7


***

She traveled
a path of faith.
And though her steps
weren’t always perfect,
she pressed on,
for she was blessed!
She chose to see beauty.
She chose to be thankful.
She followed her destiny
to the place she called
‘Red Land’.

No need to explain

There’s no need to explain why I’m here
With you such small-talk is unnecessary.
You get me better than anyone
Yet with such intimacy
You never force me to stay.

You know it’s better
That I come in search of you
Than to have you come barging in my door —
It’s the only way I’ll fully appreciate your love.

You know I always come back,
I can’t stay away too long.
Your humility and grace are powerful;
I’m drawn to the peace that surrounds you.

I crave peace —
That satisfaction of solving the puzzle —
Perhaps because my existence
Is froth with complications.
Yet you seem to take delight
In seeing me in action
Trying to solve for “X”  —
The algebraic equation of my life.

You’re waiting patiently
For me to say it,  aren’t you?
Okay then,  well here goes…
I’m here because I missed you.
I will always come back to you
For in you I am truly alive.

Voices Upstairs

Voices upstairs, new to my ears.
You once spoke softly
In the wee hours of the morning,
Lovingly I assumed,
But now you yell,
Punctuating my morning slumber
With loud,  angry words
I cannot understand.

There is tension in my shoulders now,
Which travels down to my inner being.
It brings back memories of a time
I have long chosen to forget —
A time in my childhood I vowed never to repeat
But unfortunately could not escape.

To escape your loud rants though,
I rise and begin my day —
Praying for peace of mind —
My mind —
But perhaps I should pray for your peace as well.

Time passes —
I am no longer in my room,
And so your noise escapes me for a moment.
Then without really noticing,
There is silence again,
For it seems one of you
Has left for the day.

Gone one,
I silently wish your return be met with peace.
May you both rise tomorrow
Speaking softly like you once did,
In loving tones,
Reminding me of happier childhood times
When my parents carried on in like manner.
Well wishes to you both,  new neighbors …

Lyrics, Music is Oxygen

Ceasefire

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Luke]
How do we save a life
Pointing fingers?
How can we end the fight
This way?
When blame is the truth we’re preaching?
And lies are what we’re believing?
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
Ceasefire

[Verse 2: Luke]
I will be the first to say
I’m far from perfect
But grace was made for those who don’t
Deserve it
So easy to cast the first stone
It’s harder to search your own soul
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]

One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

[Bridge: Luke]
Teach us how to live humbly
Love unconditionally
Transform our hurt into hope
And grant us Your peace
(2x)

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

The Fog

Source: Yahoo images (commons.wikimedia.org)

It rolled in three days ago,

Burning off by day,

Then descending again at night.

*****

It thickens with each passing hour,

As if to slowly wrap its arms around us —

Making its presence felt.

*****

Fog horns signal in the distance

And my young one imitates the sound

As I teach her of its importance to the ships at sea.

*****

I love living near the ocean;

It brings back lovely memories of my childhood —

Memories I wish surfaced more often.

*****

And to think I tried desperately to get a home elsewhere,

But the deal fell through.

Hmm…

*****

God works in mysterious ways!

I am in awe of HIS mighty wisdom.

I am so glad HE loves me — even through the Fog.
