Heart’s Calling

Name of heart’s calling

To know Him better, reflect

God’s glory, JESUS

His finished work empowers

Grace calls from Cross to crippled

Compass & Cartographer

Heart’s compass set true

Human sense of direction

Spins needle wildly

At best, life rolls erratic

Seek Holy Cartographer

Gift of Bliss, Immanuel

Bliss, the blessing of God’s

Living Presence, Light and Word

Immanuel, to Earth came Baby Christ

Savior King, Kinsman Redeemer

Such love, hope, peaceful comfort & JOY He is!

Silent Plea

S

Soul sobs with aching need, pleads for muted moments

I

In midst of mad holiday maelstrom; a muffled

L

Lessening of too-loud-blinding-bright.  Lord, dim clamored glare; calm

E

Eagerness to gorge, consume, grab gusto in both fists that

N

Numbs heart’s emptiness, echoing endless anguished throb

T

Trees’ pewter-misted bare-branched rest speaks silent ease

~~The nearest thing to Peace on Earth

From Meager to MORE

Level false limits

Where meager supply is viewed

Speak God’s overflow

His endless grace pours increase

Into whatever heart lacks

~♥~

Mere mustard seed faith

2 small fish, 5 loaves of bread

Boy with five smooth stones

Great is God’s pow’r to transform

Clay heart crumbling, Word restores

Inheritance: Living the Legend

Gilt-edged sails billow

Twilight begins adventure

Voyage of legend

Pages penned, worn leather log

Inheritance nonpareil

‘Tis Jolly Tricky Season

‘Tis tricky season

On slick flip side of Jolly

Bleak black abyss hides

Can Compassion’s heart offer

Balm to broken, yet not break

~

One candle-heart flames

Wish to bright the turning globe

Captives darkly chained

Must it sacrifice reaped joy

Be dimmed by world’s rife sorrow

One Degree ~ 3 Haiku

I

One degree colder

White Christmas holiday bodes

Brief hot-flash reprieve

II

One degree cooler

Scarred heart’s burning memories

Of ravaged childhood

III

One degree warmer

Heart impassioned for The Lord

Needs naught but Heaven

Spirit Varnished Heart

Spirit varnished heart

Sealed with eternal shimmer

God’s grace never dulls

Covers, restores distressed soul

Fire-damaged Past, He transforms

Gloriously new

Treasure bears Master’s imprint

No job a burden

For Redeemer, Mary’s Son

Carpenter extraordinaire

Year’s Gorge Traversed

Traversed the year’s gorge

Watched o’er by unseen angels

Heart boasts not in dearth

Of human strength, raw courage

Good Shepherd led, carried me
