See you there! : )


Perfect Lights

I humbly look up to You
In sheer wonderment,
Staring at the skies both day and night.
The daylight sky decorated with perfect colour;
Vibrant bursts of sunlight
Until the twilight meets the darkness.
What an immeasurable magnificence
When the moon climbs its way,
Spreading its light across the universe
To shine upon the sheep.



From their divine castles
To where the land is still
Until the morning fills up the sky
Excited fairies skip in song and dance
To capture a halo of delight and love.
And when the night shall be gone
They will sleep and sleep gently
In angel's Palms
Until the day is night…


He Created

The gift of God is life.
Everything He does, He does for us.
It all began so long ago,
So very far away.
The light in the land,
The flowing of the river.
The desert came
And forests grew.
The sun began to shine,
Man was given the breath of life.
Our hearts lighted with fire
Burned within us ~
God's love began to grow.
He sang, He rejoiced ~
He created love.

Al Things New

Empty your heart;
Set your spirit free
The Lord God is calling.
Let your ears hear Him,
Let Him hear you....
Rejoice in His word,
Feel the power of His open arms
Reaching out
To carry you forever.

The Greatest of All

When I was a child young and free
I was overwhelmed with excitement
Of presents, stockings and Christmas feasts.
My only thoughts were completely of Santa Claus,
Sparkling lights and Christmas trees.
I listened to stories, of the first Christmas
And magical tales of elves and fairies;
Of heavenly angels who would come at night
To visit me in my fairytale dreams…
One night a fairy appeared with an angelic voice,
“It’s the time to remember the birth of Jesus, the Son of God.”
And as the soft sound of her wings disappeared
My dreams became reality.
I chose to believe and prayed not for gifts
But the greatest of all: Love.


When It All Comes Down

My days were once nothing,
A piece of me waited in the darkness
Of the shadows.
My life was lost in the night of the days
Waiting to come alive.
All my hopes and dreams were cast aside;
My heart opened to hear the words,
"I brought your life to life...
Be still, be not afraid, take my hand and follow:
You are not alone in this journey."


I Now Remember

Before me, facing me, is existence to life...
I have felt the sudden surge from heaven;
I now remember all I had forgotten ~
The tender touch of the Spirit.


Let God

To the followers
Who find attractiveness
In their possessions
And utter to their idols
Fearing disappointment
And doubt:
Walk away.
Take the step forward,
Secure yourself in God;
Let the battle begin.
Draw strength
And see the vision
Which waits you.
Do not be beaten ~
Come alive with faith!
Fill your hearts,
Let love;
Let God.


His Strength

Sometimes I have days
That are misty and monotonous,
I experience a sense of being lost and fatigued.
At the end of these days I still confess
Life is worth living ~ God gives me reason;
He whispers strength for my day.


Called to Bless

We are called to bless
And be blessed.
We do not seek to get even
With others
For unjust suffering.
Resolve the insults and the evil
With blessings;
Demonstrate to our enemies
Our good behaviour,
Seek for Peace, pray for peace.



Emotions are a part of me.
Expressions free my mind.
Sometimes words come and flow freely,
Other times nothing comes to my mind.
It is certain the more I love something,
The greater my pain will be for losing it.
To lose a family member I would be more affected
Than the loss of a pet.
If one of my children were to die I would grieve more
Than the loss of a friend.
When Jesus died, the grief and suffering that his mother felt
Must have been inconsolable.


Wait Patiently

Patience is not about giving up ~
Be patient people of God for the Lord is coming.
Prepare for the harvests;
Do not condemn your neighbours,
Praise God and live by faith,
Become closer and nearer ~
Wait patiently…for the Lord is coming.


Angels In Disguise

I asked a child why he felt so sad,
His words took me by surprise...
He said he needed to kiss an angel,
To dry away his tears~
And a hug to feel loved.
He said he was lost,
And dreamt an angel could help him find his way.

I tried my best to cheer him up, to make him laugh.
As I spoke to him a stillness came over the earth,
A bright light whispered as it shone:
“We need angels in disguise”...
His tears were wiped away;
He was hugged and he was loved.
And most of all, he is saved.

We need angels in disguise;
Gentle hearts who still believe…
Believe in the miracle of faith,
Believe in dreams...
To live each day speaking
And spreading the Word.


Freedom Is

Freedom is the mountains further than the clouds.
Freedom is the ocean further than the horizon.
Freedom is close to where nature has her way.
Freedom is the sunlight as it filters freely through the day.
When I gaze at the heavens
There are no barriers.
When I breathe in the air I feel freedom.
Freedom is God’s spirit;
The spirit of freedom is in my life.
