    My Heart This Morning! 


    The tears that travel down my face

    You catch them in your warm embrace

    The pain I feel inside my heart

    You bless me when I don’t depart

    The storms of life keep me tired

    But you come to me in this life of pain

    Your love helps this tired child

    Your love sustains me no matter what

    Even if I feel so low

    you keep me going and take control

    Oh Lord how I long to be held

    By your hand intwined

    so much love is your way in this life

    but with the pain come lots of strife

    So today keep holding me so tight

    So we can win this terrible fight.

    Your Light Shines! 


    Your Light shines all around Lord

    As we go about our day

    Help us to kneel and pray

    Your light shines all around Lord

    Keep us close to Thee

    Help us all to see

    The light that shines so free

    Your light shines all around Lord

    So close and so near

    Help this light to take the fear

    Your light shines all around Lord

    We see you in the small things

    Help us to grow and spread our wings

    Your light shines all around Lord

    Keep us brave, help us to conquer

    all the pain, help us gain the light

    that shines in you.

    Visions Of You! 


    As I sit here thinking of you
    The sky reminds me of days a new

    The shelter you give holds me up
    The visions I see are to Glorify Thee

    The sun rise peeks in to say
    God gave you a brand new day.

    The visions of you keeps my heart content
    As the day goes on I stare at the sky
    Sometimes I look up to ask you why?

    But your love sustains me in the visions of you
    I see your hand as you make me new.

    O Lord keep those sky’s so pretty and blue
    help me see more visions of you.

    Softly you speak 

    Softly you speak as I rise this day

    As I wake the sun shines through.

    Please keep me safe this day as I pray to you.

    As I walk this walk through this day,

    keep me going and give me piece

    Hold my hand when I fail

    show me when I got off the trail.

    Lead me back to hear again

    Your soft voice within my heart,

    Your love sustains me in this day

    Please Lord keep me in your heart,

    Help me see you won’t depart,

    Guide my feet as I go

    To tell others how I love you so

    When the darkness speaks 

     I wrote this while I was under trials in my life..

    When the darkness speaks in time of trial

    I feel like I’m fading and there is no tomorrow.

    When the darkness speaks I travel alone,

    so far deep down in a tunnel running away

    from darkness, sorrow drips from my heart,

    to hear me crying out is like a echo that leads

    to a fountain of deep despair,

    When the darkness speaks the sun goes low

    like a black hole so far down that I can’t find my

    way out.

    When the darkness speaks life seems long

    so long and so wide that my freedom seems

    to be taken in a flash, so my heart weeps for you

    Lord,to set me free from the pain inside,

    To keep your light bright so I can see

    you holding your hand out to pull me from

    the darkness deep inside.

    Whispers of the petals

    I took a long walk
    To clear all my thoughts
    Nature speaks as I stroll a long

    I see the petals that fall a long the path
    The petals fall to the earth in wild colors of yellow
    Also gold seems to be there as the breeze carries them as I watch them float.

    As the weather changes With the sun
    The breeze out here carries them slowly down

    The whispers I hear as they touch the ground

    The petals fall and the birds fly
    I see the blue and the big sky.

    Critters scatter as they collect their gold
    Crickets chirp and things unfold

    Watch and listen
    Whispers will come
    Listen and hear all the natures call

    God made it all
    And it’s all talking to us

    As it whispers open your heart
    Listen to the petals
    Whisper as they fall
    Keep the colors where they land
    Inside your heart, where God’s love will never part..
