Not OK On our own, We are not OK In our own power Not for one second, Or one hour Will we ever be Or see Salvation, redemption Only by the blinding light From above Drenched in eternity’s love Can the dark in us Ever be overcome Only HIS SPIRIT can we trust To do that job We are too weak From sin Only in prayer On our knees Will we win Any battle with the satan SO KILL OFF THE OLD SELF If you truly wish to see That transformation Only Christ can bring So allowed you will be With true Joy to say ‘It is not I that lives But Christ that lives in me!’
Loss What is this sense of loss Of a deep sadness, Despair Then I raise my head To look at You & You smile! And my heart is even More beguiled And enticed To follow You But I am stuck On the other side of An uncrossable chasm For I know on my own I cannot Even begin to start To conquer its deep gorges A dark fog envelops My mind & heart Then someone touches Down with a hand It is Your Son of Man His blood paved the way Because I was oh so lost Until He reached across So on this dark side I need never stay Alone, rejected digressing From your eternal blessings Christ is that bridge That eternal ridge Of hope & joy For everyone to cross Over into God’s love You do not have to sit in The darkness of eternal loss But you must take that first step Reach for the outstretched hand Of the undying Son of Man!

Outside the Church Four walls can a prison make But prison bars confine Limit access, restrict body & the mind However, access to the Sublime Was never meant to be denied To anyone Christ, God, Holy Spirit Do not just exist, live In a building one day a week His name, face, presence Everywhere we may seek So His name do not speak Only in a building Say it out loud everywhere Stores, neighbors, from your office chair Say His name out loud Be it to one person only or in a denser crowd Just say it with great joy His name is oh so dearly needed satan’s darkness it has the power to destroy At one word, CHRIST, The demons flee, Fall & tremble on their knees Carry Him out of that church building Be His witness, messenger, everywhere To others His great love, surpassing joy You will be privileged to share Be His hands, His feet, His mouth, His heart Give to others His glorious, new, fresh start

I love the way the water catches the blues of the sky and the yellow and greens of the plants along our greenway walking trail. Today, I got really lucky and caught a female deer drinking at the edge of the river and then some full-grown turkeys in the wild grass. The largest looked like he would make a good Thanksgiving dinner as he was huge, almost as tall as my shoulder. Enjoy the pictures of the wild flowers and have a great day! Praise God for the beauty of His earth.
