So much ground covered
Soul searing soil which seemed insurmountable
Terrain which towered over us
Heartbreaking in its apparent invincibility...

But look behind,


This Way we thought impossible
utterly implausible

Now threaded with our footsteps
taken one by one
by one
by one...

and Finally,

It Is Finished.....


It Begins...

"Eye has not seen, nor has ear heard, nor has the mind of man conceived 
the things which God has prepared..."

The Last Word

"In The Beginning was The Word"
John 1:1


The Word
Which became Light
Which dealt the deathblow to darkness
In The Beginning

Still speaks
Still shines
Still writes on our lives
Authoring and Finishing
Our Story

The deepest night
is no match
for this Dictum
The Word goes deeper still

In The Beginning
In The Middle
In The End

Light will have The Last Word


"I AM The Alpha and the Omega,
The Beginning and The End,
says the Lord God,
He Who Is
and Who was
and Who Is To Come,
The Almighty
The Ruler of All."

-Revelation 1:8

...Let there be Light, a Hanukkah blessing...

"Let There Be Light"
-Genesis 1:3


The lengths we will go
to procure this primal need
even synthesizing it
with phones, tv's, trifles,
these cubic zirconia counterfeits of what was given "In The Beginning"...
which fall into our stomachs, our base appetites,
but miss our Hearts entirely, where the true Hunger lies...

The True Treasure
Buried under the impedimenta of our lives
Waits for the soul, the seeker
who will not settle for 
smoke and mirrors...

Our deepest selves Know,
and still seek Him
and will not be satisfied
with sparkly substitutions
ersatz ephemeral fulfillment...

We Hear, through the din of false diamonds
True Light
Tireless Beacon Calling us Home
Bidding us Follow His Voice
Out of darkness,
Into our 'Let There Be' Beginning...


"What you seek
Is Seeking You."

Remember what was shown you
The Glimpse Given your Eyes-To-See
on the Mount
those High Places
that Day...

Hold to Heaven's View
Gifted you

Choose the Lens that Lifted you
that Lifts you
that will Lift you
into Landscape intended all along

Navigate by this View

Do not settle for the simple way
the base elements
easily attained

Hold to Wings, My Love
Hold to High Places
Choose the Way where there seems to be no way
The Sacred Ground your beautiful feet
were Created to traverse...

Lift your eyes, Love
Raise your sights once again...

Faith, My child!



"We walk by faith, not by sight"
2 Corinthians 5:7

"I will be like the dew to Israel."
-Hosea 14:5


A gentle thing
An Annointing
Arrives quiet
After such a Long night...

Such a Long

Settles, feather down soft
Covering in halcyon Healing
Culling deep Grief

Barest Touch tending to
the bloody blows endured
merciless, devilish destruction
and dark deeds done

finally spent


Displaced by this Delicate Dictum

Blanketed in this,

Morning's Benediction.


"The night is far spent"
-Romans 13:12
