Life cannot beat God

I’ve hated this woman

I’ve fed her lies

Told her

She wasn’t good enough

Allowed others

To treat her that way

I’ve tried to break her

In many ways

I’ve crashed her marriages

Broken her heart

Fed drugs to her son

Tried to rip him apart

I’ve taken her best friends

Sent some to early graves

I’ve moved her

To places where

She knows no-one

I’ve given her great wealth

Then taken it all away

I have temporarily paralyzed her

Sent illness

And depression

Tried to make her fear

What might happen next

I’ve made her feel like a failure

As a wife

As a mother

As a daughter

As a sister

As a friend

Yes, I’ve hated this woman

By now she should be broken

But still she stands

Still she smiles

Still she believes that

I cannot beat her

She see’s through me

I am only life

And she knows

She was created by God

For His purpose not mine

Almost Unseen

Being the quiet observer

It’s a hard thing to do

Our ego wants to be recognized

Not fade into the shadows

But when we take the time

To quiet our mind

To meld into the background

Almost unseen

We can bend reality

Impact the vibrational field

Raise our frequency

Have the power to heal

Majesty

To look on Your majesty

And still not see

To be touched by

Your Holy Spirit

And still not feel

To be swept up in a birds song

And still not hear

I can’t imagine any such numbness

When I look upon

Your majestic works

I see Your Glory and understand

What a creative force You are

When Your Holy Spirit’s touch

Raises me above life’s battles

Comforts me, encourages me

I feel You right here with me

When a bird’s song joins with

The rest of nature in symphony

I hear the beauty

Of Your essence

You are the one true Living God

The Master Creator

The Great I Am

Can’t wait to see

This package arrived

And some of the items

Took me by surprise

A Cannon camera

With multiple lenses

Tripod, memory card,

And stuff that cleanses

Even an instructional book

All tucked into a carrying case

That gives it a professional look

My favorite thing that

I liked about it

Was the quote from the sender

Which read:

“I can’t wait to see the pictures you take with it”

Fly in your own Direction

Be brave with your life

Fly in your own direction

Swim in waters of distant places

Listen to the wind

Chase it where ever it blows

Take rest in the arms of nature

Renew your mind

Walk barefoot along

Moss covered trails

Breath in wild flowers

Dance in the fresh dew

Sleep under the stars

Find out who you really are

Wild & Free

Maps form invisible layers

Like imaginary tattoos

Inside this energy body

That I occupy

For now

This body allows gravity

To hold me down

Keeps my feet on firm ground

One day this body and I

Will say our last good bye

And the Spirit in me

Will take it’s leave

Zipping through the ether

Wild and free
