Until

20190512_143219.jpg

How many times do I need to tell you . . .?

You’re beautiful!

Until, I am.

 

You’re not over weight!

Until, I am not.

 

You’re able.

Until, I can.

 

You can let go.

Until, I’m safe.

 

You can do this.

Until, I’m accomplished.

 

You’re forgiven.

Until, all my guilt is gone.

 

You can trust me.

Until, I can truly surrender.

 

Father continue to remind us, of all these possibilities, your promises. Every time our insecurities show up, may we run into your arms before lies chisel us into ice sculptures.

As for the lies we have believed, evaporate them at the touch of your hand, at the sound of your truth and at the warmth of your love. Please, remold us to live the life you’ve given us through your Son’s sacrifice. And, when the pest of lies return, which they will, help us come into your presence.

“The Lord is good. He is a safe place to go to in times of trouble. He takes care of those who trust him.”

Nahum 1:7 ERV

Oh How I Miss My Artist Friends

20190427_212726-PANO.jpgAs the Ocean

would be dry

without the sea,

that’s how

I find

myself

without you,

the poet, the storyteller,

the artist, the reporter.

the thinker, the dreamer

 

Life captured me

took me from you

I’ve returned

now and then

But, only for a glimpse

Maybe, just maybe

this time

I’ll stay a bit longer

Maybe, just maybe

the chains

of inferiority

incompetent

imperfection

won’t pull me

away again

 

Enslaving feelings

keep me in the dark

corner of my soul

Away from you

Oh, how I missed

your printed words

your rhythmic sound

Your unique ideas

Your provoking art

Your rainbow heart

 

You, my friends

are  the missing

colors of my

creative playtime

Your unique art

gives me a key to

become an ocean

filled with a sea,

rejuvenating ideas

deep inside of me

 

 

 

Worship In My Highs and My Lows

 

20190323_150458.jpg

Out loud

or within

I cry out

in praise

and

at times

in pain,

either way

I choose to

worship a

Deity who

was, is and

continues

to be

 

 

20190323_150425.jpg

With such knowledge

I face the world

whether it maybe

a pleasant sunny day

or a dark stormy night

with a certainty

of a holy assurance

I’ll walk as

I face my fears

calming my breath

when nightmares

of my past appear

 

20190323_151943.jpg

 

 

Although

my knees

give in from

unbelief and

my face falls

to my feet

I will climb

the steeple

of prayer

to arrive

at the cross

where my

help comes from

 

All I need to do is worship.

In Love With The Sea

20190325_120313.jpg

With your sways you sooth my soul to near you

With your roars you entice my heart to feel you

With your rolling waves you engulf me to be with you

With your gentle release you leave me wanting you more

A piece of art

Became a show

Once the sunlight

Made them glow

A Heavenly Illumination

20181216_153132.jpg
 
With the sun behind me and covered by snowing clouds, this photo caused me to ponder. where did this light come from? It reassured me of my belief of, I’m never alone.
 
And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from Heaven. 2 Thessalonians 1:7 NLT
 
Do you believe in what can’t be seen or explain? Are you expecting miracles today or in 2019? Will your heart belief when Jesus appears from Heaven to bless you with his Light and gift you with a miracle?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?
 
Low to the earth
and behind me
the unseen sun
traveled its course
 
Heavy snow clouds
released snowflakes
coating everything
in me with glee
 
Something pulled my soul
to the trees before me
Peace, joy swirled with my glee
setting me totally free.
 
At home, happy as I could be
I looked over my photos
In unbelief, I stared at
the illuminated sky.
 
A light had shined
before my very own eyes
which I had no clue
it had even existed

Heaven’s Morning Visit

IMG_20181217_183405_898-1

In late November
Above the Cook inlet
Between mountain’s ranges
Heavenly light makes its entrance
Spreading Hope for all souls to see

Always On Time ~ Sunrise

20181119_110625.jpg
On some winter
Alaskan mornings
During nautical twilight
I sit, wait and watch the sky

Gray, white clouds
Reshape themselves
Gliding apart like smoke
From an unseen chimney

As civil twilight
Lights up the heavens
My heart anticipates
What is yet to be seen, color

With great assurance
The sun rises on time
Painting the sky, the clouds
The water, the ice before me

Happiness and glee
Spreads for all to see,
To receive and to believe
I then go to live out a dream
