DRENCHED

Oh God who watches every wave
and is with each blade of grass
let me know you’re here

The world holds me blind and deaf

Let me hear the whisper of your breath
in the sighing of the wind

Feel the brush of your robe
as you come to me

I lay my heart in your hands
and long to throw my body
in your arms

Gleaming rose
glowing sunset
pale before your glory

Focused on your work
twirling in ecstasy

WANT

I want

Can lead us through life
gathering
for what it’s worth

And for some that’s enough

Cursed are those who long for meaning
and drift
finding only disappointment

Blessed are they whose longing turns to God
Willing to slow
Listen
Reach
Beseech

Want is sufficient
All God ever asks is
our attention
longing
love

To forge lives filled with
serenity
bliss
joy

Reflecting
compassion
generosity
wisdom

Be careful what you ask for

BEESWAX

Smell of beeswax
old wood

Light filtered
through stained glass

Can I sit here
please

For hours

In peace

Dwelling on You

Blessings I’ve known
are not for me alone

I will step out
into the wider world

and share

Though like a toddler
I want

The more time
I spend in Your arms

The more I have to give

And the more I want
to spend time in Your arms
