Healer Of Our Every Ill

Healer of our every ill,
light of each tomorrow,
give us peace beyond our fear,
and hope beyond our sorrow.

You who know our fears and sadness,
grace us with your peace and gladness;
Spirit of all comfort, fill our hearts.

You who know each thought and feeling,
teach us all your way of healing;
Spirit of compassion, fill each heart.

By the tender mercy of our God,
the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1: 78-79

In Silent Mists

s of s 15437fdb7b902bbea5dcb7902d695ae3s of s 82b6e1893572ff5e606dfbee2cceae39

~ ~ ~ slowly ~ ~ ~ and in silence the mist absorbs
the lakes and the hills . . . trees become indistinct
and distance vanishes . . . . . .

only the flowers and grasses nearby seem to be
on this earth ~ ~ ~ ~ birds fly out of nowhere and
back into nowhere again . . . . . . . .

There is intimacy in the soft air ~ ~ reverence ~
and peace . . . . . . . . the great peace of
a soul that knows that the sun still shines ~ ~ ~
~ ~ that the hills and lakes are just beyond ~
~ ~ ~ where they have always been ~ ~ ~ ~

and ~ knowing these things ~ ~ ~
finds loveliness in the mystic mist . . . . . . . .

Your Beauty Shall Enfold Me

HSS  232760c952931ff02e0be8b01ffefc2f

Your Beauty shall enfold me
as I walk my path this day;
Forever held in Love’s embrace
Your Presence comes to say:

“Beloved ~ child of joy to me,
Rest deeply now in peace,
for I have blessed you mightily,
Look here now, and you shall see?

You are all you’re meant to be;
Living freely, bright and fair;
Beloved ~ child of my joy,
you are held in loving care.”

Stillness ~ ~ ~ Peace


Stillness ~ ~ ~ Peace

You go no where
with your striving for –
You go everywhere
with your abiding peace.

You are carrying
the heart of God;
that’s the greatness
of who you are.

Let Him rise up
to live this day;
Let Her joy
with you abound.

At every moment
God lives in you ~ ~

Stillness ~ ~ ~ Peace

wherever you go . . .
God IS

May Grace Inhabit All Your Moments Of This Day

Light Presence  895ff576505701ffdb9a40b29c368a4d

I speak to you from the depths of your being.
Hear me saying soothing words of Peace, assuring you of My Love.
Do not listen to voices of accusation, for they are not from Me.
I speak to you in love-tones, lifting you up.
My Spirit convicts cleanly, without crushing words of shame.
Let the Spirit take charge of your mind, combing out tangles of deception.
Be transformed by the truth that I live within you.

The Light of My Presence is shining upon you, in benedictions of Peace.
Let My Light shine in you; don’t dim it with worries or fears.
Holiness is letting Me live through you.
Since I dwell in you, you are fully equipped to be holy.
Pause before responding to people or situations,
giving My Spirit space to act through you.
Hasty words and actions leave no room for Me . . .
I want to inhabit all your moments – gracing your thoughts, word, and behavior.

A Gentle Pause

Butterfly pause  56bffbc6e894e17934cadc28fbedc390

I hear the softness of the gentle breeze this day
Reminding me to pause and rest awhile;

There is no need to hurry on my way,
The tasks shall wait until this moment passes.

For now, be still, my soul, and breathe ~ ~
Then breathe again, the breath of Life.

Let Peace pervade your tender heart and mind,
as calmness comes into your very soul.

In quiet stillness let all striving pass away,
For you, Beloved, are pure Love, pure Light.
