 Today I had the rare joy of being outside, for the most part alone, in the quiet, enjoying the beauty of Honduras, creation, and God's presence.  

I was asking God what some of the stuff rattling around in my mind these days is all about.  Maybe a dangerous question!  

I love words, poetry, and thoughts on paper, so I am going to share.  Maybe it will encourage you to spend some time alone with Him in the beauty of His world made for us.  


Home, Beauty, Life, Fears; today I feel them all.  

Dreams, Visions, Failures, Insecurities; today I see them all.  

Stand, Worship, Tell, Story;   I am called to do all of these.  

Power, Rest, Presence, Soul; the things you give and guard.   

Don't knows, Weaknesses, Must-dos, Falls; to You I give them all. 

Anger, Love, Awake, Maturity; the words that come to mind. 

Fun, Enjoy, Satisfy, Beauty; come Holy Spirit I long for them all.  


Sometimes I can't catch my breath.  Sometimes the holes feel too wide and deep to be filled.              I struggle.                                                                                                                                                                   And then there is the beauty.  A bird. The greens.  The movement of the breeze.  The colors.                  You are faithful, forever, my portion.
