Find That Child

running.jpg

People are more than what they do

The car they drive, the kind of shoe

People are more than what you see

The soul inside that yearns to be

Free as a child, running wildly through the grasses

Tumbling madly into the waters

Knowing that they can do it all again and again and again

With no agenda, no worries, no difficulties

Look deeper, if you can, into their eyes and find that child

And give it freedom to come out awhile.

With One Word

 

jesus

Storms of chaos, fears, disability, anger, helplessness

Waves larger and larger till you feel that you will drown

But there is One who can walk right over those huge waves

With one Word, “Peace,” they are gone

Calmness and peace and stillness and smooth water

All around

 

Cling on to that promise.  Slainte,  Lisa

A Rose in Autumn

Autumn-Rose.jpg

Standing as tall as she can

She stretches her neck towards the sun

Petals showing their age but still retaining color of blushes

Lightly lined and becoming dry

She is happy to be there, in the garden, in the sun, in the green

Feeling the touch of the wind and the rain on her skin

Still alive and lovely and glad to be

Going On

55.JPG

Following the fence posts, one by one, until the meaning of what they are blurs

Steps, one by one, through soft ground, mire, holes, rises

Keeping hope, without sight, hoping that what is over the rise is better than what is past

Finally, blue and power and water and sky and ease and release

Going on and on and on with God forever

There Once

There once was a house, all red white and lovely

The people within living life day to day

There once were some sheep, all white round and fluffy

Who dined on the richness and greenness all day

There once is a God, all knowing and powerful

Who made all within and without

The first and the last, beginning and end

The One who holds all the people and houses and sheep

Out of love
