My Heart’s Content

His voice is in the rising sun, the melody of songbird scales; in fragrant, fragile viburnum, first taste of coffee, fresh and hale. I breathe the air in of the Son; the Spirit helps me to prevail. When daily in relationship He shapes this unique workmanship.   With Him in me I feel the drum […]

His Name

His grace and […]

A Diet of Praise

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.

Ode to Psalm 119

Acrostic A in Fourteen Syllables Almighty God, Creator Maker of things visible and invisible, to You I lift my hand, raise my voice. Adoring me so greatly You sacrificed Your One Son. Anointed, Jesus lived, taught, suffered, died, overcame death, abides in me now through the Holy Spirit’s grace and peace. Acquiescing to Your will, […]
