Beams And Splinters

More clear sighted that the eagle
Piercing eyes that can see others
Giving correction upon their person
Casting self righteousness on a brother

Ready to find fault on a falling friend
Making oneself both judge and jury
Trying to restore without seeing thyself
Results in a backlash of loathsome fury

Forgive the beam in me and not be aware
A heartbreaking place of soul and heart
Not paying heed to faults in ourselves
When others could see them, from start

Beams and splinters a lesson learned
Judge my own acts and sin to reform
Letting myself be found above reproach
Living Jesus, committed safe and warm

Rainbow Water

I sat beside the running brook
So cool and crystal clear
Thinking of the Living Water
Knowing, He is ever near

Solace for this weary heart
To see this water spring and run
Listening to wind kiss the trees
Beauty amidst the setting sun

Tiny droplets of rainbow water
Bounce from mossy rock green
The sun rays a gleaming hue
Feeding the eyes to glean

Welcome shade from canopy high
Eyes closed reflecting upon Him
A place to think and gather
Underneath Gods hanging limb

The Last Sacrifice

I sat beside the running brook
So cool and crystal clear
Thinking of the Living Water
Knowing, He is ever near

Solace for this weary heart
To see this water spring and run
Listening to wind kiss the trees
Beauty amidst the setting sun

Tiny droplets of rainbow water
Bounce from mossy rock green
The sun rays a gleaming hue
Feeding the eyes to glean

Welcome shade from canopy high
Eyes closed reflecting upon Him
A place to think and gather
Underneath Gods hanging limb

Beauty To Perform

God sent something beautiful today
Right in the midst of a raging storm
Crepe Myrtle blossoms falling like snow
Pink, white and lilac, beauty to perform

They floated before my very eyes
And blew down the street in waves
Dancing and playing in a river of joy
Delicate beauty on the ugliest of days

Rage storm rage, but please let them stay
I needed the wonder of Your handiwork
You know how to sooth a breaking heart
With simple pleasure to take away hurt

Wondrous the majesty of Your creation
The power to calm an angry frothing sea
Then send delicate blossoms in a gale
To please and comfort a soul like me !!

Water Lily


Lovely grows the Water Lily
Roots growing strong and deep
Beneath pool of enduring water
Beauty the bud, awaken from sleep

Like our Lord, the Living Water
Our growth depends upon Him
Bringing forth born again blooms
Sweet joy that comes from them

Some only bloom during the day
Others choose both day and night
God says to be in season and out
This being , our Christian flight

Flower, our beautiful Water Lily
To gaze upon with humble pleasure
Floating on your crystal water bed
Another gift from God to treasure
