Music To My Ears

Image result for piano in heaven

When I was a little girl
My mom would say those wonderful words…
“I’ll read you one more story.”

That which once was music to my ears
has changed with time and passing years.

Oh what heights of glory were
reached upon hearing the awesome news…
“There’s no school today due to bad weather.”

A happy day it was receiving my
high school diploma as the announcement came…
“Congratulations to the graduating class of 1980!”

That which once was music to my ears
has changed with time and passing years.

After crying out to God in true repentance,
He impressed upon my heart affirming words….
“You are forgiven!”

Like a sweet symphony
The voice of the man of my dreams rang out a question…
“Will you marry me?”

That which once was music to my ears
has changed with time and passing years.

After laboring to give birth,
my own vocal chords lifted in sheer glee…..
“Honey, it’s a girl!”

My little girl whispering
Those coveted words for the first time.
“Mommy, I love you.”

That which once was music to my ears
has changed with time and passing years.

Reflecting on my life, I can see that there
have been so many musical moments
produced by words that resonated
in my soul. But I have been living most of my life
watching, waiting, longing, anticipating
to hear that celestial concerto that can only
take place in another world.

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Enter thou in to the joy of the Lord!”

That which will be music to my ears
will not change with time or passing years.

What The Bible Means To Me

Image result for holy bible

Those sacred pages, I love that Book
precious Holy Bible, upon which I look.
Lovingly inspired by the Rock of Ages,
I love that Book, those sacred pages.

My heart so impacted by no other writing
consuming fire in me ever igniting
such spiritual treasures I have extracted
by no other writing, my heart so impacted.

It’s powerful, life changing, when teachings are applied.
The transformation in me cannot be denied.
Order of my life, renewed, rearranging,
when teachings are applied, it’s powerful, life changing.

I pray, heed it’s call. You will be blessed
as the remedy for your sin is addressed.
To such noble doctrine, yield your all.
You will be blessed. I pray, heed it’s call.

Hidden Message Of Spring

singing robin

early blooming spring trees

Dulcet melody of robin singing
now indicating spring is in the air
blooms in resurrection now are bringing
in gardens many, colorful fanfare.

New buds on trees, uniting form chiffon
Covering over winter’s cold bareness
weave regal raiment, fair to look upon
flowing gently, moved by wind’s soft caress.

Renewed fresh life, it’s wonder does now lace
the earth with youthful, strong vitality
God’s faithfulness does put it all in place
blessing to be enjoyed by you and me.

Perhaps in spring, there lies for men a clue
They too, through God can have a birth brand new.

The Death Of A Foe

Hidden deep within
the recesses of my heart was
a seed of sedition
that I could not perceive –
until the day
the preacher I did not know
stepped up to the pulpit
and began to speak about
bitterness.

Me, bitter?
I was just nursing a little grudge, because
after all, she did say
some very hurtful things.
Was this really a big deal?
I still loved God.
As war raged inside me,
my epiphany led me to realize
I was the deer in
the headlights,
the unclothed emperor
not knowing he was
naked until
someone with audacity
told him.

Some very strong words
came to my mind.
“Kill or be killed!”
Suddenly, I found myself
at an altar,
repeatedly stabbing
that seed with
tears of repentance.

I arose feeling confident that
something died inside of me,
and I pray it
never resurrects!

I Stand Here Transformed

 

I stand here
in front of the mirror
realizing I’m not the same person
that I used to be. Old habits, attitudes
once so binding, constricting,
like heavy shackles, have been loosed.
There is a lightness of spirit, a bounce in my
step that was not there before.
The woman
that stares back at me with tears flowing
down her cheeks once again receives
fresh revelation that
she is
a living trophy
of
Your
amazing
grace!

Changes Of Heart

Upon each tiny toe
upon each little finger
the tender, loving gaze
from her eyes did linger.

She wondered at this miracle
the Lord God did impart.
A holy reverence shrouded her
A great joy warmed her heart.

The years, they passed so swiftly
of watching baby grow.
Time moves with swift transition,
much faster than we know.

This Babe once held so lovingly
grew up to be a man,
In an instant of darkest history
He filled God’s eternal plan.

She viewed His punctured feet
and surveyed the nail scarred hands.
A wrenching sorrow pierced her heart,
almost more than she could stand.

Sometimes the grief we bear is great
and we may wonder then.
Will the clouds abide forever?
Will the sun ever shine again?

Mary and others assembled in Jerusalem
fifty days after Jesus’s passion.
God was about to pour out His Spirit
in an awesome, most…

Proud star of Bethlehem by choice divine

With pride you led men to the Light of the World.
