Nature’s Language

The snow-laden path crunches beneath my feet;
the frosty air turns my nose red and runny;
the twinkling of stars in the distance catches my eye
as I see my breath expand before me.

Nature’s beauty and power all around
speaking a language only my heart understands.
It tells me I’m not alone for God is here with me.

Five minutes

I went away
from the busyness
for just five minutes.

The ocean waves cresting.
The seagulls circling.
The cool breeze blowing.

As I walked the shore.

The sun setting a brilliant cast of colors.
The cool sand sticking to my ankles.
The salted water lapping at my toes.

My alarm rang, and I’m back.

Feeling rejuvenated and grateful
that in just five minutes I can reset,
no matter where I am.

Book Release: GOD is so much more, a poetry collection

Over the past few years, I’ve found much enjoyment pondering and processing life by the stringing together of words in poetic rhythms. As I became more consistent with writing and sharing these creations, I began to see themes threading throughout — typically spiritual, philosophical, inspirational and/or nature-oriented.

With much enthusiasm, I compiled haiku and longer-form poems into my first poetry collection for publication. This one focusing on thoughts and experiences with God.

Click here to check out this newly-released poetry collection — GOD is so much more.

Maybe you would identify with some of these poems, maybe they would speak to your heart, maybe you would like to “swim in the ocean of love, melt in the arms of assurance, and find a peace beyond understanding; a discovery that God is… so much more.

Below are two poems from the book that inspired the title.

GOD is

God cannot be described.
God cannot be contained.
God cannot be understood.
God cannot be explained.

God can only be experienced.

God is not a he.
God is not a she.
God is not an it.
God is all.

God is the breath you breathe in.
God is the breath you breathe out.
The wind that blows through your hair.
The sun that warms your face.
The rain that wakes you in the middle of the night.

God cannot be avoided.
God cannot be escaped.
God cannot be abandoned.
God cannot be ignored.

God. Is. Not. Absent.

God is hope in the midst of your pain.
God is joy in the midst of your exhilaration.
God is everything in between.

God is the here and now.
The there and then.
The tomorrow and all that will be.

God is the living and breathing of all things.

God. Is. Life.

So Much More

God,
You are,
so much more
than what my mind
can comprehend,
and I’m so thankful,
regardless of my limitations,
You love me all the same.

May you be blessed by God’s presence, today and always.

All this and more

Peace is found in acceptance.
Acceptance is found in faith.
Faith is found in hope.
Hope is found in love.
Love is found in God.

God is all this and more.

Deeply

To know You deeply…

my eyes would see with compassion,
my ears would hear Your voice of truth,
my lips would speak words of kindness,
my tongue would taste the sweetness of your Name,
my nose would smell a fragrant bouquet of Your love,
my hands would reach out with gentleness and care,
my feet would walk to serve those in need.

May my heart and mind
be malleable in Your hands,
like clay to the master potter,
as I desire to know You deeply.

Vessels

Vessels
transporting,
here and there.

All shapes and sizes
to fit the need
of the cargo.

But the human vessel
is different.

An artistic vessel
we co-create
with God above
so that our
earthly experience
is specific to us,
like a fingerprint.

No two are the same;
our individuality packaged
in a beautiful design,
and delivered under
the stars and planets
a guiding factor
for who we’ll be.

Our differences
created with the Artistic palette;
for my personal experience
on this earth
only I can fill.

All things connecting
in a grand design
we can only see
with Heavenly eyes.

It’s a glorious design
this human vessel.
Yet, it is still only
a vessel.

Transporting,
here and there,
a carrier for
our spirit,
our divine selves.

As we seek the beauty
and glory of God,
as we journey on
this earthly experience.

Be kind to your vessel
and its cargo,
as well as those passing by
in the day
and in the night.

Invitation

You judge me,
yet you don’t really know me.

But I get it.

You judge me
because you have felt judged.

How about we throw out
the opinions of others?

I invite you to come
and experience me for yourself.

Enter into my courtyard—
a place of love, mercy, and grace.

The gates are always open.
The invitation always remains.

I welcome you to come
and taste for yourself.

Oh, how I do hope
you accept my invitation.

Oh, how I do hope
you join the celebration.

There is always room for you here.

I want to sweep you up in my arms,
and dance with you forever.

May I?

Eternally

With all the questions I have for God,
when I finally stand before Him,
I feel my tears will express it all.

He will hear me.
He will hold me.
He will love me.

For I am forever His, and He is forever mine.

Eternally One; eternally home.
