Have Faith

I miss your smile
Just because I’m your child,
I miss you telling family stories
Of who did what and why,
Of you and me
Making apple pie
For Sunday tea,
I miss your sewing
And pins in my feet and
Your kitchen without you is incomplete,
So I wear your pinny
When I’m there
And I still hear
Your voice in my ear
Telling me when I’m right or wrong.
I miss your smile
But I’ll see you awhile,
This I know
Because you told me so,
Have faith you said,
So I do.

Dog-a-log

Two logs and a dog
Makes a good Friday night,
Iced-gin in hand
With slice of lime,
Just Kitty and me,
WatchingTV.

2019

May the new year
Smile more
Blessings
Into our lives,
To provide
Opportunities to live
Fruitfully, peacefully,
As we realise,
Less divides
This small world
Than what we
Commonly believe.
Life is but a short while,
So smile,
When blessings rain down,
And thank the maker
Of your stars
For the scars
That show
You have loved
And lived
And face the new year
Without fear.

Christmas

Your plan for man
Brought you down to earth
To an unmarried mother
At the wrong end of town,
Heaven’s great light
Born in darkness of night
To a time and a place
We know not why.
A Christmas gift
Turned the world on its head,
A gift of life, a gift of love
As God-above
Became man below,
Knew grief, knew sorrow,
Walked the walk of shame
To the cross of pain,
To see the plan through;
Born for me, born for you.

Lifter of my Head

You have rescued me
From grief and despair,
Creating oases of peace 
Where I shamelessly languished 
Under your protection,
Shielding me from pressure.
I needed time, 
You created it for me,
Lovingly carrying me
Through the empty valley
Once filled by my mother and sister –
You are the lifter of my head.

Psalm 3:3 ESV
“But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.”

Rivers in the Sky

29B1DC99-E698-4583-A03C-1A10FA797C91

Fill us with your spirit,
Enlighten us
To discern your will
For our lives,
Show us what to do
To be true to you.

Shut out distractions,
Focus our minds
On your immense love
Constantly pouring
Over us from on high;
Rivers in the sky.

Teach us to float
In this living stream,
To be weightless
Though weighed down,
To trust in You
As You want us to.

Revelation 22 (NLT)
“… a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God … “

Intricacy

I am wife and mother,
Sister, lover,
Daughter, teacher,
Aunty, dreamer,
Cousin, niece and friend.
All these a different me –
A complex personality.

I am wonderfully
And fearfully made;
My designer, the writer
Of my unique story,
Knit me into being,
Stamping me with his mark:
I am his and he is mine.

I am many names
Yet he knows all.
None can separate us,
He knows me inside out,
Knows the mistakes I will make
Yet takes me as I am –
A woman of intricacy.

Psalm 139:13-14
“For you created my inmost being;
  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
