Jesus and Tea

cup of tea

Tea is like the Lord, so soothing and so sound.

It heats up all my insides and is fragrant going down.

Its deep, rich, amber color is so like the Throne of God

and the lights which spring forth from it in rotating thunder rods.

The leaves of tea bring healing just like the Tree of Life

and birth in me new energy, and grant me sleep at night.

Leaves brown and green mark new roads in humility and life.

A crown and ring God gives to me as His pearl of great price.

Yes, tea will ere remind me of what God has done for me,

and I will ere be grateful for their similarities.

His Light on Me


When God’s Light shines on me
all sin and shame must flee.
Awake! All my senses
and gone my defenses
because I am loved by the Three.
If I am ever unsure
that my thoughts and intentions are pure
the Savior, He sees me,
forgiveness is easy
because, in His faith, I endure.
Merciful God! O, Father above!
In holiness, bathe me in Your endless love
where troubles and worries all cease,
and my heart is seized by Your peace,
and Your breast is soft as a dove.

Green Eyes

GREEN EYES - poets voiceA pair of green eyes for me to see
the face of the Father eternally.

A pair of green eyes, life-giving eyes;
my hands on His face, one on each side
of His handsome face, His glorious eyes
burst into my soul, burn into my eyes.

A pair of green eyes – wonderful eyes,
He steadies His gaze – His focus is wise,
understanding, and true and holy, and loving,
and knowing of me, and telling and trusting.

I love His eyes! How I love His eyes!
His marvelous, soothing, enveloping eyes.
Jehovah’s deep eyes, a deep-green surprise,
a pool of belonging and sweet family ties.

Lord Jesus’ eyes come from His deep, green eyes.

A pair of green eyes, lively, wonderful eyes
that perceive all things and give life – never lies,
never darkness nor death nor sorrow nor pain;
I’ll dive into these eyes and not surface again.

I love the Lord’s eyes and God’s eyes love me.
I will take them forever in my eyes to see
all the world through His influence and through His care;
take the Lord’s heart within them with me everywhere.

The depth of His eyes, the sweetness, the green,
the life and the love more than I’ve ever seen!
The depth of His eyes, the green, loving eyes
of My Father Jehovah are themselves the prize!!
