Thanks Be to God!

Father, Your Love to me is wonderful.
As flowers yield their depths to sunlight, I have opened my life to You.
You have welcomed me with grateful Arms;
I am loved, nurtured, and bathed in springtime rain.
While shielded from the sting of winter’s harsh and bitter grasp,
Your kindness nestles me in the comfort of Your womb.
All I have, and all I know, is LOVE for You.
You are all things to me, dear Lord, and
for this, I truly thank You.

Father, Your Love for me is incomparable
and, as orchids link their fiery hues to summer’s buttery breezes,
I give my breath to You in song.
Your Strong Winds blend all utterances with Your Eternal Life.
I am Yours to direct in Your Good Pleasure.
All fragrances of Love and Life are Yours and precious to me.
You’ve pressed the flower of my life within Your Bosom’s pages;
eternally remembered by You.
Your harmonies go on in me in praises everlasting;
I’m bursting with Your Wind chimes!
In You I will rejoice!

The passion of my life is Your symphonic masterpiece.
For this and every phrase of JOY, My Father, I do thank You.

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!!
