    Standing in the silence, Feeling ripples in the night. And yet, the stars still shine brightly overhead. Distant worries seem to fade. The moon, a sliver on the horizon, Cool and remote. In the peaceful stillness, There is a Presence who is near. Available. Willing. Loving. Warm. The endurance of the One Who guards our hearts and minds Is a comfort tonight and every night. The darkness will not prevail Because the Light lives on. In this moment, so clear and strong, I bow and whisper, “Thank You, God.” – RG

    Reminiscent Joy

    Music of the Masters streams through my living room, Memories of days gone by harmonize with their melodies, Fragrant and pungent as the pinon wood burning nearby. Rather than leaving ashes, these thoughts bring joy, hope and restoration. Blessings too numerous to count, stacked in random order, Creating a mosaic that is beautiful in my mind’s eye. Kindness, love and a simpler time, When things were truly what they seemed. Today, as another Thanksgiving has passed I stop and thank God for Who He Is, rather than what I have. There is changeless magnificence in Him. It is very easy to bow before such grandeur, How could one not? If…

    Whispers in my heart Telling of the Hope, Not forsaken, never alone, Always in the palm of His hand. My name inscribed there. The vision of Him bending down To hear my prayer. Listening. Caring. Taking time to hear me. How can it be that the Creator Who molded all we see Out of nothing Would care for me? Gratitude simply isn’t enough. Devotion is a start. Eternity is the time to spend saying, “I love You.” – RG

    I’ve seen the wonder of a sunrise, Heard the waves crash on the shore, Felt the rumble from the thunder, And longed to see Your face once more. I’ve smelled the fragrance of a flower, Touched the ebon star-lit sky, Seen the moonlight on a river, Tasted tears at times I’ve cried. And all the while You’ve never wavered, Cared for and protected me. Your love ascends beyond all measure, Even past eternity. Today I’ll see You in the things Created by Your artist’s hand. The trees, the flowers and the sky, They all exist by Your command. In every sense Your pulse of life Is woven in creation’s song.…

    Raindrops on the windows and thunder rolls in waves, Today there is a blend of heat, energy, and liquid cool. I am a reflection of the nature around me. The thirsty ground is soaking in the heaven-sent water. My soul is finding balance in the Maker of seen and unseen. In the solace of today, without the interruptions, I know the connection, and it is real. God pours Himself into the world and our hearts. His loving hands craft the daily miracles we see and hear. The song of a bird… The bloom of a flower… The smell of the ocean… The taste of a kiss… The touch of a…

    The moments are sweet, rare and fine – And fleeting. The essence of a person, Their heart, smile and soul Are treasured. Cherish the seconds for time is relentless. Grateful, so grateful for the love shared. Hopeful, so hopeful for the days ahead. You are in my heart – Not just today, but always. I will recall the laughter and the love – Wishing for more, thankful for what was given. – RG
