  1. You call me your friend But am I really your friend? You run in and out and you want me to be there. You chatter and gossip with people You want me to stand and listen. Wait! No, you reply. I must hurry. Off you go and expects me to follow Am I your friend or your servant? Who jumps at your command, And follows every step you take Allow me to explain. I know the answer you reply I have a plan, let me share it with you. No. I have already made my plans. This is the way to go. I’ve trod this way before No, you fo

  2. Angry words are like a dagger Stuck into the human heart And they do, yes, far too often Make the tears of sorrow start Though they take but just one moment To bring forth a flood of tears Yet the wounds they have created Linger on - for months and years If you have a raging temper You'll do well these words to heed Words that still remain unspoken Will no explanation need He who can control his temper Has within his being stored Much more power than an army Laden down with gun and sword

  3. You are the gift, O God, the only one I need for all eternity. Nothing else matters but you and me, gliding to the music that not all souls hear. But if we dance and sing, perhaps our symphony of love will draw them near.

  4. “ Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) The word renovation has many synonyms, including restoration, revamping, makeover, reconditioning, overhauling, and repair. When a building is “under renovation,” things can get pretty messy. But it only lasts a while, and then everything turns back to “normal.” Not so with those of us undergoing a Holy Spirit renovation. Spiritual makeovers are a lifelong process. When God is working on us to be all that he planned, he keeps “upping the ant

  5. Love, True love, comes from the One, who had His blood poured for all, for wretched you, and for wretched me. We can never, save ourselves, but we are very capable, of making a mess of things. We can never give ourselves eternal life, but there is a Great One, who can do this, God's only Son, who hung on a tree, because of the love He had, for you and for me. Marc Fournier ( H6-70 )

  6. All the diversions, things which steal away, our attention, time, and energies. they take our focus away from You. They are nicely packaged, but as your replacement, they will never do. Our lungs will only hold so many breaths, the beats of our hearts will eventually cease. Only our complete trust in You, our precious Lord, will brings us eternal peace. Marc Fournier ( F1-68 )

  7. Only in your presence, can I really drop my guard. only with You, do I find that comforting place. I run around this world, to find this or that, when all the while, it's not where it's at. Lord, heal my heart, make it pure to you. Bring back the child in me, the one I've misplaced. Keep chipping away, these scales of callousness, I've acquired with years. Teach me to be vulnerable, like the children the young, they have no pretense, their loving spirits, bring only sweet music to your ears.

  8. You took me from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners, You called me. You said, that I am your servant; You have chosen me and have not rejected me. So I will not fear, for You oh God are with me; I will not be dismayed, for You are my God. You will strengthen me and help me; You oh God, will uphold me with Your righteous right hand. All who rage against me will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose me will be as nothing and perish. Though I search for my enemies, I will not find them. Those who wage war against me will be as nothing at all. For You are my L

  9. Staring at a blank screen Wondering what to write Want to tell a joke to make you laugh To take your mind off your troubles I cannot be by you to say to you it is ok So, I will send this poem to let you know I am thinking of you Nothing funny comes to mind So, I will tell a story One time I ate breakfast with a homeless lady I had time to waste, so I went for a bite to eat She was by the front door with her cart She asked for me to bring her a burrito I said come dine with me She downed her beer; it was 6 am She went from a

  10. Seek the Lord (A Prayer for Sutherland Springs) Seek the Lord in the darkness. Do not let the shadows define your journey. Lean on His wounds when anger tells you to strike back. Seek the Lord when the world says there is no reason for doing so. Kneel and pray for the holy ones and the sinners. Seek the Lord when deep voids surround you. He stands in the light, risen from an empty tomb. The saints of Revelation bask in His glory, evil is crushed under His foot. Seek the Lord in the darkness. Do

  11. Weary are we, of the long bitter nights Tired, dormant souls, beneath blankets Hidden from the winter wrapped world Dream we, of fragrant forest vales Silent, like cocooned caterpillars Painfully, ensconced within a swaddle We wait for a chance to change Dream we, of fragrant forest vales Quietly growing toward the sky Dawn, dressed in warm white linen Releases the softly rising sun, Dream we, of fragrant forest vales Down winds the human clock Rise we, from the cold dark sleep Resurrected, timeless, ch

  12. Beginning to formulate stuff for an Advent Sunday service. So this is a rough draft of a new piece: Standing on the threshold of the season Standing on the threshold of the season, waiting for the darkness to clear, waiting for the travellers on their journey, waiting for the new star to appear. Standing midst the songs of celebration, waiting for the dawn of that day when the tide of time begins returning to keep the dark of night at bay. Standing at an inn or border crossing waiting, always waiting, for relief shunned or hounded by oppres
