When The Sun Shines

falls-beauty

When the sun shines
it beautifies,
refreshing our eyes.

Like a gentle tide,
memories flow
of precious days gone by,
the growing years,
loved ones, special places,
precious moments,
different faces.

Joyful sounds abound as
children play, their day
full of new discoveries.

Hearts are cheered
and smiles appear
as grey gives way
to azure skies above
and all around us
glistens.

Love blossoms,
two hearts share;
fragrant scents
fill the air.

Radiant rays
beam through lofty
forests.

Warm crimson sunsets
close glorious days;
twilight haze
paves the way
for starlit skies.

Thank you
dear Lord
for the beautiful
gift of gold!

“Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is
for the eyes to behold the sun:…”

Jesus, My Joy

JESUS, MY JOY

Dear Friends
I thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words of encouragement throughout 2015 and  likes of my poetry posts. It’s my joy to share the blessings of the Lord with you.
I pray that throughout 2016, abundant blessings will be yours and that the peace of God which passes all understanding shall sustain you, every passing day.
I pray that the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be magnified
and that the light of His glorious gospel may shine into many hearts.

God loves is an everlasting love,
forever shining, from heaven above

Centre of My Joy

Sunset (for Centre of ..)


From the heavens, Love looked down,

left His glorious robe and crown
to pave the way for all of humankind.
Jesus Christ, the sacrifice –
for one and all He gave His life,
all because God had us on His mind.

Mercy looked beyond my shame
and lovingly called out my name,
saying “I have come to give you life”.
Forgiveness came with open arms,
enveloped my soul with calm
and took away the inner doubts and strife.

Happiness evaded me,
until I came to Calvary
and looked upon the face of Him Who died.
Freedom broke the bars of sin
when I opened up to Him
and, in my soul, new tears of joy I cried.

By His grace, I walk this road,
thankful for the love He showed;
the peace He gives me, nothing can destroy.
Strength within, He gives to me
and words of life that set me free.
He’s my hope, the Centre of my joy!

Absolutely NOTHING compares
with the satisfaction and fulfilment that comes from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus fulfils the inner longing of human hearts.

All we need to do is:

 * Believe the gospel
* Call on His Name
* Turn away from our sins
* Let Him come in.


Speaking just of water,
in the Bible story of the woman at the well,
Jesus said

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.
Indeed, the water I give them will become in them
a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
(John 4:13 NIV)
