Renewal’s Perfection

Renewal’s Perfection

A lamb, slain
Bloodied by men
Lost in imperfection.
Once encased in
Flesh,
Now living in power

Desiring lusting
After us, humans,
The lost.
On a cruel hill
Of pain
Absorbed our darkness

Into Himself.

Abolished, destroyed
Hell’s hold
Over man forever
With

Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness.

The Father’s Power
On display in a weak,
Human-like face
Showing the glory of
True Grace.

He is coming back again
For all time and finally
recreating a dying, lost
World, sin-soaked

He will
Absorb
All our evil, darkness
And give us and this
Earth
His Blazing light
And living perfection.

We rest in the hands of the Living God, not Covid-19. Pray and Praise God. He says in Malachi Return to me and I will return to You. Praise God!!

No More Death

artforlust

No More Death
(no such thing)

On a hill, long long ago,
A poor man
Died
Once for all
Abolishing death for all

If you choose HIM

Carrying Eternity within
Himself
He allowed us to destroy
His earthly body

In order to recreate
A perfect body
A new man
Living forever in
Glory

Resurrected to wait
To return us
And all nature
To

Its original glory

The rocks, trees
Even grass
Will sing a
New song
No more death,
Decay

All will live
Every plant, human
Animal
In perfection’s glory
And new obedience,
To Worship!!

Lust!

artforlust

Lust!

Lust, to
Intensely Desire
Is your name
To create discord,
Discontent
Is your deceitful game.

To make us want
Pleasures
We do not have
For this type of
Wound there is
No magical salve.

Deep it may run
Abscess & ache
nothing on
our green planet heals
This pain no matter
How much you may partake

Of fulfilling your
Lusts
Of each and
Every kind
Its appetite just increases
With indulgences & time.

Worldly lusts leave
One empty, so unstill
Unsatisfied
Until you seek first a higher
Lust that always will fill
Your center’s deepest needs.

We constantly are
Trying to tame
This unquiet restless ache
That only one lust
Can soothe & never
your weary heart break.

A heavenly lust
For a Creator/Father
Endlessly seeking
Each son and daughter
Wandering the earth
To restore to His safekeeping

Each lonely child
Each wounded soul.
His eternal goal
To bring you peace
Safely into the realm of
His Loving Arms
And Heavenly fold.

Joy

Joy
(For the Joy set before Him)

Joy transcendent
Above our planet’s face
Transfixed it rises
Reaching upper space
Seeking its one true home.

Coming from a
Higher source
It is not satisfied
Until it has finished,
Run its committed course.

Promised in angel’s
Whispers
Sought by ancient
Prophets’ words
Looking to occur

In whomever will
Take the time
Learn to listen to
Heaven’s wishes
And smallest sighs.

A Savior exposed your
Greatest power
Enduring a cruel cross
To show your face
In his darkest hour

For your sake he
Endured a painful death
Making sure not one,
No single child
Would ever be left

Not seeing, not knowing
Your saving Grace.
For you, Joy, He
Remained on a path
of a criminal’s shame
yet transcending still
toward His Father’s Face.

Breathe

artalive

Breathe

Breathe
In and Out
of This Spirit,
Ancient and Holy

Exists, giving You
Breath.
Owning each heartbeat,
Each sigh,
Coming, giving you Life.

Purifying, replenishing,
a Holy Fire burning,
Desiring
to live within
Us.

God desires for His Holy Spirit to live within us as ‘a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance’ and to help us become His new creation, ‘the old is passed away’. Praise God!!

Greenway’s Spring

 

My husband and I went walking along our river’s greenway today(the most germ-free place we could find) and took a few photos. Spring is trying to start with a few wildflowers coming out. The grass is starting to really turn green along with the new little leaves on the trees. I like some of the beautiful old trees in winter without the leaves because you can see the actual forms of the limbs and branches. Hope you enjoy your day and take care of yourself. Praise God!

Spring’s Rites

 

Spring’s Rites

Rites of Spring
Ancient as time
Watching Her fling
Her flowers
As she climbs

Higher, Higher
Becoming stronger
As She ascends
Promising the Sun
He may run longer

Across the sky
Holding night at bay
Within his fiery grip
Lengthening each &
every day.

We rejoice
She has returned
Winter had brought
Cold’s drought
We felt as lovers spurned

From her warm embrace
Denied the beauty of
Her face
We now feel entitled,
Must we really battle?

Over these Rights of Spring
Are we forced to stand
Toe to toe
Cajole, implore, as if
With her we are now foes?

No, we had rather
Love
Receive freely the Rights we feel
Are our due
Release our peaceful doves

As Spring returns
our Happy Rights
To enjoy the sun,
Laugh in his warm embrace
lying aground within the sight

of multitudes, gatherings
of happy flower faces
brought forth amid
Spring’s joyful warmth
Nature’s once again reminder
of God’s great & gentle graces.

I couldn’t help taking a few pictures from around town of the first signs of spring. The moss is turning greener, plants are now floating on the water in our wetlands and the animals have started daring to stick their heads out. Even the birds, a few ducks and Canadian geese, have started returning. I always love this time of year. It’s almost like feeling a return of life after the cold of winter. Have a blessed day. Praise God!!

Valleys

artforvalley

Valleys (#2)

Down, down
We fell
Tumbling, falling
Refusing to heed,
Listen to
His Calling.

God encased in
Flesh
But only for a
Brief moment
For on His death
We were too intent

To listen to
His Words
Giving into evil’s
Dark voice,
Selfish desires, making
The wrong choice.

So, in that deep, black valley
We destroyed
God’s Shining Son
Oblivious, unaware
Of this, Heaven’s efforts
to rejoin us into One.

As His blood fell
To earth,
Beneath His cross
Satan danced in
Dark delight with
Screams of joyless mirth.

Thinking himself
The victor at last
at our final destruction
But once again
His mistake was
To forget his own past.

This Son’s body
Was raised again
to life in Glory
Rewriting, changing
Forever
Our not yet finished
Story.

So today, Christ’s followers
Still celebrate
A Glorious Golden cross
still shining its victory
over Satan’s dark valley
of defeat and total loss.

Within Your Eyes!

artwinthinyoureyes2

Within Your Eyes

Within your eyes the
Stars explode
Within your breath,
Planets turn to spin
Creating a new
celestial choir
never heard before within the
dark spaces of this universe.

Suns bounce and gleam
Around Your head
In your passing, trees
Release ancient root fingers
From rocky soil
Bowing leafy heads to ground
Within your shadow

Dolphins dance on white
Crested wave foam
As you smile down
Upon them
Joy unsurpassed vibrates
The air as you speak
Our names.

Our Lord Redeemer
Once broken, bloody,
Dying on a cross
Now reigning in glory,
Your power on display upon
your Golden crystal throne

Still, you inhabit our
World
Laughing for purest joy at
Each new rebirth
Each reborn child
Snatched out of the
clutches of an ancient,
evil enemy

Your laughter sings about
Our heads
Rejoicing at your precious
saving Grace
Sent to end our pain, wars,
diseases, suffering
And start this, your world,
Anew
