One of Grace and Beauty,
dweller in Merciful Love ~ ~ ~
This Rose I give to you
as essence of the love you’re meant to be,
Gift of the sorrow that has ruled your pain.
Now meant to open as the flower of Love,
Fragrance of myrrh that wise ones
through you bring . . .
mingled with grief of all that you have been.
that now the petals bloom,
show forth this Beauty . . . Love and Grace unfold.
Take now the story of your toil,
raise it to life,
so others too may heal.
Wonderful mercy of a gentle flower,
abundant blessing given
amidst the thorns.
Nourish compassion in the way of peace,
Fervently follow the way of Christ, your Lord.
There is such Love,
poured out upon you now . . .
Anointing the remembrance
of broken hearted dreams.
No longer shall the fears infest your soul
for you are raised to triumph as a King’s
most cherished being.

Tinged with age, but still calls me forth to new life ~ ~ ~
It Cannot Be Denied
Only Jesus ~ Christ alone
I have learned to love and honor God
through him – the Savior of my Soul
My love is deep
do not deny it
by trying to pretend otherwise
for it cannot be denied
- it is the ground of my being
- it is the truth of my essence
- it is the healing of my soul
this love that dwells within
and cannot be denied
Let this love reign
Let this love heal
to soothe my bitter woes.
I sit within my silent realm
to know this love of Christ
No greater love than this can be –
it cannot be denied.

Against every new outrage
And every new horror
May we put up
One more piece of love and goodness
Drawing deeper and deeper strength
From within our deepest selves.

“Come back to me with all your heart . . .”
~ Joel 2:12
COME TO ME, Come to Me, Come to Me.
This is My continual invitation to you,
proclaimed in holy whispers.
When your heart and mind are quiet,
you can hear Me inviting you to draw near.
Coming close to Me requires no great effort
on your part; it is more like ceasing to resist
the magnetic pull of My Love. Open yourself
to My loving Presence, so that I may fill you
with My fullness. I want you to experience
how wide and long and high and deep is
My Love for you, so that you can know My Love
that surpasses knowledge. This vast ocean
of Love cannot be measured or explained,
but it can be experienced.

Your word, O Lord, like gentle dew
falls softly on my heart of hearts,
awakening me to all the glory
of this blessed day.
I behold your wonder within
a single flower –
rejoicing in the abundance of
beauty that your grace bestows.
Walking forth to meet the dawn
I carry with me the Presence
of your love —
to guide each step
with your unending care.
In the brightness of your Light
I see the way ~ ~
new vistas that shine love into each hour;
and all now shall be well . . . all shall be well.

Creator of Light and Life,
As the morning sun rises this early morn,
may the light of your love rise up
within my heart, to shine through me

Deep waters flowing through me,
Christening all that speaks of life,
as Your grace resides among the rivulets,
that emerge to find their Source.
With Your power and Your glory,
they gain strength to fully be ~
Streams of mercy flowing onward,
filling oceans of Love’s being.

Listen child ~
Can you not hear
the whispers of
a love song
singing through your soul —
to heal your tender heart
of all things ill?
My grace shall hold you
through these passages of shadow
that veil the Light of Glory
that is with you every hour. Continue reading
Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior.
You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness
beneath the mental noise. You are the love and
joy beneath the pain.
