September Thursday Thoughts





We lead, not by words
Fluent and ample
But by the element
Of Example

***

Habits make
Or break us

***

There is no such thing
As a tiny
Sin

***

Oh the wearying of worry
Futile grief
Powerless passions
Of unbelief


Oh the power of praying
Whispers of dust
Fly like an eagle
On wings of Trust

***

Worry and longing
Two grand wastrels
Of life

***

Why do you gaze in sorrow
To unreachable Past
There is a River of Moments flowing
To its ocean vast

We cannot reclaim the vapor
Of a bygone sigh
But savor the sweet nectar
Of Now slipping by

***

Lord, make our greatest passion
Com-passion

***

We fill our wanton chalice
With fruit of deed
Will its wine be garnered
From Need or Greed

***

I planted a seed
It grew; it bloomed
By God’s grace and mercy
I am not consumed 

***

When we fill the air
With patient prayer
It dissolves dark clouds
Of despair

***

Oh God, trusting You is so much easier
Said than done
But in our constant dependence
Life’s vilest battles are won

***

We cannot rend the veil
Twixt Known and Unknown
But, nor can we fail
With God’s hand on our own

***

Time, the trickle
Of Mortality
Flowing toward
Eternity 

***

Oh glorious thought
that sets us free
By the grace of God
go we...


***

NOW
is the only thing of worth
Spend it wisely.
