Praise for Grace

.

Traversing the dark tunnel of life

I came face to face with Your grace,

Washed clean by Jesus’ blood

Of the new covenant,

Filled with the Holy Spirit

And cloaked by the light of Your love.

Praise God our heavenly Father,

Lord and King of all things:

Hallelujah, Lord of lords!

Hallelujah, King of kings!

Amen

Soul Matters

Soul Matters

.

From when we are born we begin to die

This is a fact no-one can deny

This earthly husk starts to decay

Over which we have little sway

But spirit is eternal, a part of God

A treasure we hold gently in our hearts

We can ignore, pretend not to hear

His call for us to understand

As He reaches out His helping hand

To feed and nurture this link to Him

To bind us, hold us and enfold us

That when the turmoil of this world is done

We may be together all as One.

That Flying Feeling

That Flying Feeling

.

About a thousand years ago

as a child running wild,

we used to ride our bikes

for miles and miles

through the countryside

and down to the ocean wide!

What freedom was this

that today’s children all miss,

no such thing as congestion

of traffic or lungs

(not to mention crime where now

life is worth less than a dime),

we would trudge up hill

and soar down dale

for all the world like an eagle on wings

swooping low and sweeping high

shouting for the wind to carry

our voices up to God in the sky,

oh to feel again the joy we felt,

the immensity of our world and

the freedom to have fun in the sun!

Pasture

Pasture

.

Useful up to a point

Then put out to pasture

Abandoned or sold for scrap

Rain-rusted tortured rotting

Buried in landfills or graves

Off with the old and on with the new

The motto of today implies

There’s a never-ending supply

Easy come easy go

Animal vegetable or mineral

Thirty pieces of silver should

Hold off the sheriff for a while…

Silver Fish

Silver Fish

.

Flash of silver quick as lightning

Fleet of fin (ha) they catch a ride

On the backwash of each wave

Taking shelter behind cropped rocks

Knowing the music of the sea

Feeling the rhythm of the water

Breathing in, breathing out

Anticipating even the crabs’

Sideways stagger —

Silent hunters of the ocean floor —

Confident of the secret pathways

Shortcuts made to aid escape

And Time

And Time

.

And time can be so misunderstood

Whether flying by in the blink of an eye

Or dragging slowly, stretching, extending

Seemingly depending on one’s view

And thyme is of the essence too

Stuffing in a fowl never smelled as good —

The aroma beckoning our hunger pangs

We walk life’s path hand-in-hand with time

Alongside us and our shadow lags behind
