Hope you can curl up by some still water and enjoy a bit of special poetry today...


We are happy to welcome Dana Cook, our friend and member of Marjorie's Thursday Bible study class, to share some of her poetry. May it bless you as it has those in our group...

Beauty


The layers of the beauty of the sky

All form together to make one beautiful thing.

That as far as the world can see, shines gloriously.

But I know its true meaning,

The beauty that lies within,

The filament of My masterpiece making the world right again.

The efforts that you make, spurned on by My beckoning,

Create a chasm fortress that I (God) can clearly see,

Buttressed in My love one cannot help but see it’s glistening.

Here’s the way to see and gain understanding:

In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will lend an ear,

Leaning in to whisper that “I love you and hold you dear.”

Repeated confirmation that you realize its Me in your life

Strengthens and releases inside the one I created you to be.

And then you will see the person of beauty that you never knew was a possibility.

Beauty comes from the inside: its grace, love, and peace.

The fire kindled of the Holy Spirit,

Refined and cloaked in strength.

Eternal Pathway

Synchrony of time and the Majesty of Grace

(Jesus) are always at work.

The fluidity of hope the Holy Spirit pours over your life

Presents the One Who resides in you.

Stringed instruments play the sweet melody

To honor and give glory to Christ our King.

Nature knowing the voice of God,

“This is My Son in whom I am well pleased.

”Fear not the sound of wonder, believers in the Lord,

Announcing the return of the Redeemer

Who comes to gather His own.

Forever bound in love, the faithful are renewed

Seeking Holy friendship that endures

Throughout the timeless realm - The Eternal home.

(c) 2017 Dana Cook

The Lord’s Prayer

"Our Father, Who art in heaven

Hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our debts/trespasses

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom,

and the power,

and the glory forever. Amen."

(Matthew 6:9-13)

Dana's writings on The Lord’s Prayer ...

Our Father

Your Father

My Father

The Father of all

Who Art

Everywhere

Always

Present with you and me

In Heaven

At peace in His position of Lord of all

Hallowed be

All honor and glory forever

Thy name

Is love and power that covers us

Thy kingdom

Is forever

Resides inside of us

Is majestic

Come

Now to all who are weary and heavy ladened

Thy Will

God’s determination of joy for you and me

Be done

Be it unto us as You have spoken

On earth

Throughout all of Your creation.

As it is

Perfect

In heaven

Our home

My home

Give us this day

Right now and all the day through because we trust You

Our daily bread

You, Lord are faithful in Your provisions and love

And forgive us our debts/trespasses

Where we’ve robbed and cheated You and others and harmed ourselves

As we forgive our debtors(those who trespass against us)

So that we do not take up any offenses.

And lead us

By Your righteous hand

Not into temptation

You are kind, understanding, and have mercy upon us

But deliver us from evil

For You only can save us

For Thine is the kingdom

Heaven and all belong to You

And the power

You alone are in control

And the glory

The honored Presence

Forever

Now and eternally

Amen.
