The Absolute (He Knoweth ALL Things)

are all the
hidden bruises ~
left behind
silent crosses ~
engrained with
and pain

are all the
inner thoughts ~
taken residence
hearts theory ~
and conclusions

are all the
silent songs ~
unsung melodies
with LIFE ~
and contentment

There is HOPE, for He knoweth all things.
There is GRACE for His mercy endureth forever.
There is LOVE for on Calvary I was on His mind.


He Knoweth All Things


Heir of Grace

Titus 3:7
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.



The calm of night

comes slowly down

as my heart drifts into prayer,

I stop to ponder

amazing grace

at the cross my soul lays bare;

With humble utterance

the battle spent

I drop all worry care and strife,

I claim the blood

in Jesus name

an heir to eternal life.



Time (The Olive Canvas)

I step inside the canvas
For at the end of day,
I observe the room of clutter
From meadows green and gay! ~

My heart sings with the Buntings
I feel their song of cheer
The Chickadees and Kinglets
Bring the olive forest near, ~

Though once inside the wood I know
‚ÄėTis only for a time,
When I shall turn my thoughts around
To the worlds of rapid time.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Days goes by so swiftly, moments but fleeting time. I pray I will make the most of every precious moment. Thank you for your beautiful creation. It is a balm for a weary mind.


Still Reflections (Colour of Life)

I viewed pressed blossoms 

   Of yesterdays arbour,

As such stored treasures 

   Of one who savours, ~


The hues though pale

    Still flutter with life,

Through still reflection 

   The colour now lives! ~


I breathed in fragrance 

   A foothold of promise;

The wakening choice; 

   of tomorrows song,


Though cloak of present 

   Still bids me captive; 

I deny its venture 

   To voice its possession.

I Believe (Hope is Born)

As I bundled up to head outdoors to our now snow blanketed back yard ~ my mind was floating through thoughts of possible captures. As many of you know, I love to encourage expressions of beauty through our Lord’s magnificent creation!

Setting my camera down and crouching to lace up my boots, my eye caught a decorative piece of the season; BELIEVE is what the deep red words spelled. My direction of viewing went straight to the letter ‚Äúi‚ÄĚ, that just so happened to be dotted by a beautiful little star! Instantly my thoughts plunged into the very reason for season‚Ķ.our blessed king that was born in a little stable~manger of hay. So humble was His birth, but mighty would be the WORD He would bring forth to the world. He would give the astounding gift of SALVATION to all that would believe in Him. Before the night was holy, before the angels rejoiced, His coming was foretold.

Isaiah 7:14 – “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:

Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

With my camera dangling about my neck, and the little ornament in my gloved hands, I continued with my expedition. Entering the backyard there were a dozen beautiful multi coloured doves, nervously pecking at the scattered seeds on the ground. I walked slowly hoping not to frighten them. Peering up into my beautiful maple, I noticed the sun smiling on a couple of the lower branches. As some of the doves took flight, one awkwardly tried to perch on one of the lighted branches. The dove only stayed for a moment, but long enough for me to catch the natural warm glow of the sun on its soft feathers. How perfect I said out loud! The sun shining down on a beautiful dove symbol of LOVE! Making my way through the snow, I then placed my little ornament BELIEVE on the branch, and smiled as the sun graciously shone down upon the little star.

“Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.‚ÄĚ

Excited with my new capture, back into the studio I went! All I could think of was how our Lord came to earth to be born of a virgin, to die on a cruel cross so we could be saved and given ETERNAL LIFE!   Oh what a wonderful Saviour! He gave His own blood for even me!

May we all reflect on our Saviour ~ His journey from the manger to the cross. This season is a beautiful avenue to share the LOVE of CHRIST and why we celebrate! Tell your children and your children‚Äôs children, ‚ÄúHe is Lord‚ÄĚ

I Believe

For every night

there is a morn

HOPE and prayer

flight is born



 For every TRUTH

there is a lie

for every LIFE

one must die



For every start

there is an end

for every straight

there is a bend



For every sparrow

there is a SONG

for every sorrow

JOY belongs



For every season

there is measure

for every CHRISTmas

there is treasure



For in a manger

lay our KING

brought to earth

let PRAISES ring



For from the manger



souls set free



For from this earth

one day will part

ETERNITY to gain

never more to part




‚ÄúMerry CHRISTmas‚ÄĚ


Purpose (Dawn of Grace)



Morning of life

dawn of grace

fill me now

with song 


let harmony



chorus of love 



of mercy

my heart

has found


Certain in faith

HIs presence real


appointed life


Rapturous trust

perfect in love

take over

my given soul
















Man Behind the Music

I love the man behind the music

For his character is in each note,

All his passion and endless love

In music pieces he doth devote.


I feel the man behind the music

Such compassion grace he bears,

With every note and every stanza

Placed precisely with such care.


I need the man behind the music 

For he fills my life with song,

Without him there would be no music

Without him everything is wrong!


Oh where is the man behind the music?

Come to me my love I pray,

Strum the chords within my heart

And promise my love, never to stray!
