Gratitude 101

The birds and the bees
The pollen and the trees
The rainbow in the sky
The earth on which I lay
My family, my friends
My mind and my flesh
Those who've touched my life
Even those no longer alive
The joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
The laughter and tears
The health for all these years

For all these things
I thank You Father
You're the King of kings
The Lord of lords
I acknowledge You
and place You above all

Seeking Him Within

Show me the map
to Thy secret place
that within me resides
Lord show me Your grace
That I may turn only to You
For You dwell in me
Lord show me Thy map

Letter to the Unknown

Just to inform you
that I am coming in
Invited or not

I am fighting
that beast named fear
Faith is my only weapon

Expect me soon
for I am coming in
Invited or not

Don't lie, Mr. Preacher man

Don't lie to me
Mr. Preacher man
Lest you lose me
and many more
True happiness
lies not in material things
Not in big houses and cars
nor self-indulgence
True happiness
lies in loving all
In giving, and sharing
'til we die empty
In discovering our place
in life's puzzle
and living to fulfil it
For there His Kingdom resides
Don't lie to me
Mr. Preacher man
Lest you lose me
and many more

Healing Power of Forgiveness

My heart
has ceased to bleed
The clot of forgiveness
has helped me heal

Fare thee well
I wish you the best
May His grace light your path
On your every journey's step

The Heart's Anaesthesia

The heart's anaesthesia
due to past hurts
Will close the door
to the love of your life

Don't hold on
Let feelings freely flow
Thus you will find
The joy we all search for

My 3 X 3 X 3

The number three, the Triad, Trinity
Completion, creative power and growth
Three is birth, life and death
The beginning, middle and end
Past, present, and future
A complete cycle unto itself
The first number to which "all" was given

On this day I celebrate three 3s
A monumental day in my life it is
Many blessings gained
Many lessons learned
A lot of joy, a lot of pain
Smiling as I watch the sun, and experience rain

I dedicate my 27th to my Maker
El Shaddai
Elohim Gadol
May I be a manifestation of Your glory
A vessel that will bring you joy

Forever grateful
Bonyo wuod Buogha
