Thanksgiving ~

The incomparable Gift of Love
even the smallest Glimmer of it
No Greater blessing can pour from
the Windows of Heaven
The Love of a moment
- or a Thousand Days -
can fill a heart for a Lifetime,
the Miracle and Magic
lingering long after...
It is nothing less
than Homecoming,
this Finding
this being Found,
and one can never be lost again
once the way has been shown
and walked together...
the Landscape is changed forever
lush for having Love's
footprints upon it,
loamy with the treasure
lent it for awhile...
...such a sweet while...
For this supreme Grace
This climax of Creation
The Almighty's Magnum Opus
May the Lord make us


"Now abide faith, hope, and love;
the greatest of these
is Love."
-1 Corinthians 13:13

Wings - haiku II

I must know the Art
of Landing, of Groundedness,
in order to Fly
I Rest in this Place
Waiting, Watchful Stillness which
precipitates Wings
 Ephesians 3:17-19

"In Returning and Rest you shall be saved..."
-Isaiah 30:15
This Returning, This Rest
This Homecoming
Is Restoration.
Like an old, forgotten, Priceless Painting
is Restored,
one neglected, abused, left in dark places
too long exposed to decay
So You find me
So you still see Beauty
The Beauty originally Authored
and Intended by the Artist
You See...
You retrieve me out of the dark
out of the decay
You blow the dust off
and begin the meticulous work
of repairing the damage of decades...
You Restore my soul
You make new what must be made new
and with the Skill of a Master Artist,
You revive the original masterpiece
and return me
to my rightful place
Home again
with You.
"The glory of the new house
will be even greater than the glory of the former,
and in this place, I will give Peace."
-Haggai 2:9

"One Thing is needed"
-Luke 10:42
Our Purpose,
Our entire Purpose
for being on this planet,
is to become
the personification of
The Path we've found
from here to Heaven
True Meaning
is Found
in our finding and being found
by The Way,
in being so intimate with The Way
indeed One with Him,
that through our lives
others find their way Home
So many are starving to know
The Secret of Life...
The Secret of Life is living close enough to
the Heart of God
to hear His secrets,
and then to tell the whole world...
and not just to tell the Message,
but to become the Message,
the whole of our lives
becoming harbingers of
His True Heart
To become conduits of Christ
to a hungry and thirsty world
is the crux of our whole existence...
to become the Bread of Life
 with which He feeds His sheep
 to become the very Light
by which
He leads them
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"
-John 14:6

Reflection - haiku

to a world who's eyes are starved
for the True Beauty...

"Awake, O north wind, and come, O south,
Blow upon my garden, that its spices may flow out..."
-Song 4:16
So many cocoons have held me
And here am I
in the newest nest
once again
waiting for Wings...
But Perhaps,
in the Waiting,
Because Of
the Waiting
I Fly
Every time I emerge
into this hungry
-e.a.a. "Hindsfeet" 11/11/13
"How lovely are your tents, O Jacob, Your dwellings, O Israel!
Like valleys that stretch out
Like Gardens by the Riverside,
Like aloes planted by the LORD,
Like cedars beside the waters.
He shall pour water from his buckets,
and his seed shall be in many waters."
-Numbers 24:5-7


"God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.'"
-Job 37:5, 6


God's voice
in the
of snowfall,
that make up
a downpour,
in innumerable
autumnal leaves
quietly quilting themselves
one by one
blanketing the earth
in beauty,
and in 
the millions of moments,
miraculous and mundane,
that make up my life...
these also thunder
with the still small voice
of God
" small a whisper we hear of Him,
and the thunder of His power who can understand"
-Job 26:14

Lost and Found - A Prayer...

I tire of loss
I'm longing for Found
a little less Loss
a little more Found
To know You, God
sans smoke screen
sans all the
less-than lenses
that have been given me
to See
I want to be Amazed
by Grace
by Mercy
by Second
and Third
and Thousanth
I want to stand
and Wide Eyed
as I once did
as a child
full of anticipatory Delight
my trusting hands outstretched to Yours
waiting for inevitable
I want to know
the One
Who lost love also
in that garden long ago
Who, with anguished Heart
and Sorrowed Soul
went looking for it,
in earnest,
Longing for Found
as I do.
