Angel Dance

Angel Dance

Angel Dance

Angels dance lightly

On gossamer’s chords

Spun from joy’s beauty

As beams of your grace

Are flung brightly

You watch in delight

As your glory, light

Pulsate, glow

Within the energy

Of your eternal might

Longing to embrace

A world laying waste

Homes, families

The world they walk on

Listening to dark demons’ songs

So, as your angels dance

At your feet

I too give a longing glance

To pray for my world

To keep,

Follow the light of God’s face

To return to the warmth

Of His everlasting embrace.

Free Will!

Free Will

Given a choice

Never will He force

Desiring for a place

Inside your heart

Holding all the power

Yet longing for the hour

You will choose

His embrace

Owning every heartbeat

but never will He leave

Anyone behind

Yearning for His Face

So, make the right choice

Listen to the voice

That leads to eternity’s

Truest joy and

Christ’s Glorious, Glowing Life!

Light in the Darkness

I know people do not particularly like to hear about supernatural experiences with God, but I tell this only hoping to reinforce your faith in a living, breathing God. This happened to me right before my first round of cancer treatments.

I have obstructive sleep apnea. It’s where your soft palette in your throat collapses down over your airway, and you stop breathing while you are asleep. Before I knew how dangerous it can be, I think I stopped breathing, and my heart stopped because all of a sudden one night after going to sleep, I was suddenly awake, fully conscious and in a very dark place. I had no physical sensations at all. All I could see was a spiral of really beautiful white clouds trailing off into the distance.

I did not want to look at the end of the spiral because the sensation came over me that if I looked at the end of it there would be no going back, but I had no choice. I had to look at the end.

I looked and that’s when it happened. Immediately, I was in the presence of the light. It was everywhere, and it was overwhelming and brilliantly bright. The colors of the rainbow were moving back and forth constantly through it. I could sense a presence, an intelligence, a someone in or behind the light but I could not see them. I tried to look away because it was so bright, but again I had no choice. I had to look at the light so I turned back toward it.

That’s when it felt like someone slammed me up against a brick wall, and with a sudden hard jolt I was back inside my body and back on my bed trying to figure out what had just happened to me.

I believe my heart stopped, and for a minute or two I died and was given a brief glimpse of God’s glory before He slammed me back into my body. We are promised a glorious resurrection life if we stay faithful to Christ our Lord. I hope this will help you in your faith walk. Praise God and have a blessed day!

Today was so beautiful in my part of the world. It was the first real cool day with a breeze blowing. I could not resist a few pictures of our wetland area with the first few blushes of fall’s colors just starting. Hope you enjoy. Praise God for His kindness in making His world so pretty to look at sometimes!

I live in a smaller town where we still have a lovely courthouse square and several older, historic homes still being well-maintained making it pleasant to walk the city’s sidewalks.

Battleground #2


Darkness chases me

From an ancient enemy

Hot breath behind

On my neck

Running I scream

For someone to protect

My heart

I labor, I pant, I moan

Pain, terror fills the air

Eyes closed from fear

I crash into your chest

You stroke my hair

Embrace, folding me

Into the gentle nest

Of your heart

Your light explodes

Filling my orphan’s world

Making up for my lacks

Of home, family

Giving me yourself,

Lord Christ,

And our joyful ecstasy!

A Creeping

A Creeping

(a prayer)

Sadness creeps in

Between the cracks

Of my Darkened heart

That I wear

Holding on to

Every care

Help me, Holy Spirit

To let go

So old memories

May no longer hold

Their black power

Thank you for appearing

Willing to come nearer

To this world’s & my pain

Trying to teach me

The strength within your name

Of Glory, Majesty, power

Over heaven and hell

Urging me to tell

Your nearness to me

For a spell

Of Your Beauty’s angels,

Darkness’s demons,

Your blinding Light

Help me to do it right

To spread your goodness

To a world so dreadfully,

Desperately, in need of

Your Love’s Passion

And Perfectly Pure Might!!

Falling Leaves & Fuzzy Grass

Through falling leaves

& fuzzy grass

I hear fall’s whispers

As I pass

On glass waters

I watch you float

In orange, sun-yellows, gold

You gloat

Undisturbed by my remote

Passing by

I hold this day

Within my heart

Knowing from fall’s colors

I shall have to never part

So, if I am allowed to walk

Longer upon this earth

At another day, another time

I shall once again be witness

To that christening divine

Of yet one more glorious fall’s birth!
