GRACE

 

Oh Lord, we come before You, 
On this Thanksgiving Day. 
We ask You for Your Blessing, 
As we gather now to pray.

 

Bless this food before us, 
Of which we will partake. 
Forgive us all our sins, 
And mistakes that we may make.

 

Strengthen our very souls, 
Make us worthy of You. 
Keep us safe, from any harm, 
In everything we do.

 

Guide us every day, Oh Lord, 
Show us right from wrong. 
When we are feeling weakened, 
We pray You make us strong.

 

Father, we give You thanks, 
For loved ones gathered near, 
And we ask that You watch over, 
All those, that aren't here.

 

We pray for peace and harmony, 
Upon our struggling earth. 
We thank You for the precious Gift, 
You gave us, in Your Son's birth.

 

Oh Lord, we thank You for everything, 
You have blessed us with again, 
And we humbly pray, all of this, 
In Jesus' name....Amen.

Depression's Defeat

Folder: 
Soul Poetry

 

Its such a deep, murky pit,

that drags you on under,

From the sobbed teary rains,

and your own personal thunder.

 

I cling desperate, to the walls,

in my life's effort to get out

Fingernails digging in,

I climb the only known route.

 

Escape is most essential,

for this aching, inner struggle,

As both the depression,

and the sanity, I juggle.

 

Brought about by pains,

of both my body and mind-

Some the result of abuses,

others have mentally assigned.

 

But never will I break,

and never fully, will I fall.

As always before, I'll come back,

-much stronger then them all.

 

For up at the perimeter's lip,

God's Hand extends outward, to me.

And His Amzing Grace, like always,

Lifts me up...and sets me free.

 

*That Day*

September.3.2005

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins

 

Meeting you that day was Gods way

In telling me not to give up just yet 

Even though I can't put into words on what I want to say

God has our lives for us already set

So if it is meant to be 

God will let us know

He'll let us see

He'll let us show

But these feelings within

It may be new

But it happened for a reason

God made my skies again blue

And I pray in the future your heart I capture I win

That day that we met

That day that our eyes came together

My mind was set

You going to be mine

And that day once again your heart hopefully shine

 

With joy with happiness

With laughter with greatness

With love with passion

With a friendship that will never end 

And I promise to try not to go out of fashion

I promise to try to be there

To wipe away the tear when you cry

I promise to you to your heart

To always care

And whenever you have a broken heart

I'll try to patch it back together 

I'll try to make it feel better

 

I pray to god to make that last forever

We met for a reason that day

WhenI seen you sweety I thought "Damn he's hot!" 

I wanted to know more

And once we held eachother I'd hit the spot

In your heart

And something new we'd slowly but surely start

To this day that smile

I will forever adore

I just pray I can keep you for a long while

A little bit longer A little bit more

 

I really love the way you kiss

With so much compassion you put your arms around me

And hold me so tight

When I'm in your arms I'm in heavens bliss

I miss you in my eyes view my eyes sight 

You touch,smile,everything about you I really do miss

My feelings are not a lie

Then I can no longer fight

I'm just going to let them go free

And see what happens

See if you feel the same way as me 

At night I'm constantly thinking of you 

 

Wanting you right by my side

There is one thing I ask of 

From me your feelings don't hide

And if we ever get into a fight never push and shove

I'll promise not to hurt your pride

You just wait and see I really do think we're meant to be 

I'm here and was brought here to once again help you feel

I'm here to help you, your heart to heal

 

Your touch and kisses everything I want more

When I first seen your gorgeous self

My jaw nearly hit the floor

And I thought maybe I don't have to keep my heart

On that old dirty shelf

It doesn't have to stay in pieces all apart

The things I say or do I pray I don't scare you 

That's not what I want

It's not what I'm trying to do 

I want to be your lady

Me I want you to show off to flaunt

But not to shadey

 

Whenever you enter my daily thought

I get a smile upon my face

And then I thank God above

That you make my body tinglely,warm,and make my heart race

And for giving me another chance

To see that my life is worth it to live

I thank him so much 

Because I think I found someone I can truely learn to love 

And I'm happy....To you, My heart I give

And I can be greatful to have your company

And your inner self I will love more of 

 

Your warm embrace

Your shine in your eyes

Your smiling face

I would do anything go anywhere 

To always care forever share

Just to see you again

I never had a sweet dream come true

Untill God let me find you 

I never found words to say

Untill that wonderful day

It's true you're the one I think about in every single way

 

No matter where life takes us love

Apart of me will always be apart of you

I would never believe that going to a place

Would have such meaning 

I'm glad everynight I say a bedtime grace

It's real and precious

Hearts running at a fast pace

That warm feeling

God made me see

When I met you that special day

For "us" sweety everynight

I will always pray

Our love will reach the greatest height

And all I have to say

I fell so in love with you that day

4 Poems: Bee Tables, Woods Worship, Gathered Shards, Yes I Can

YES I CAN

*
Can I help?
Of course I can
said all from
the people of Japan
to each Corsican

GATHERED SHARDS

*
As magnets pull iron filings
and vacuums draw up rice grains
As the sun lifts sea waters
and rivers gather drops of rain
does Great Love
sooner or later
attract all to His train

WOODS WORSHIP

*

Daffodils convene
in clusters in the
fallen leaved woods
to worship in
Mother Earth’s chapel

BEE TABLES

*

For wandering bees
Queen Anne’s Lace
is the table, the food
and visible grace.

The Golden Dawn

Folder: 
Poetry

Trapped inside the darkness

the shadows we find

the pain and sorrow

the loneliness

the light we leave behind

falling fast down the rabbit hole

the world’s fading light

leaving only nightmares

and cold

and the bitter bitter night

we pray for saving grace

to make the darkness die

hoping for the light of the sun

the warmth

down in the grave where we lie

but there is no salvation

no redemption from this hell

no hand of God to lift us out

no Christ

to find us where we once fell.

*Look into my eyes,Let me tell you*

Look into my eyes and tell me what you see,

Here with you is where i want to be!

In your arms i feel so safe,

I like to feel your love and grace,

I crave it when you hold my hand,

Only you can take me to the promised land,

A land of dreams

A land where we can see the heavens that await us,

A land where we can gaze at the stars in love.

 

Let me listen to your heart beating

Put mine to yours and feel our souls meeting.

 

Let me walk with you,

Let me show you my love for you is true!

 

Look into my eyes and tell me what you see

All that i am telling you,

Do you beleive me?

 

You and me baby what do you say?

I know our love will last for more than a day,

My love for you is free, there is no price to pay

 

Let us be closer than ever before

You and I were born to unlock loves door.

Love

Folder: 
Love

We all are fallen
Fallen from heaven
Not what we're supposed to be
But some are forgiven
And can keep living
If I show the love given to me
"Why would God allow...?"
Questions asking how
Pale next to His grace
More like, "why am I not dead?"
His love in my head
Radiates off of my face

My Wish For You

Folder: 
My Love

This is it
This is goodbye
And though you say I just can’t add up
I’m not so sure about that
But your saying that may mean
That you’re not good enough for me
Yet, that’s not how I feel

So before you leave
I wish

That you always find God’s grace
That you find what you’re looking for
That your dreams give you wings
That you aim at the stars
That you appreciate compliments
And forget critics
That you live like you’re dying tomorrow
And you always find your way back

I’m still your friend
And I can settle for second place
But only because loving you briefly
Is better than not knowing you at all
Perhaps another time
Another life
We would’ve been happy
But if you can’t find someone better
I’ll still be here

And I wish
That your heart won’t be broken
Past what I can fix
That the fork in the road
Wakes you up to the drive
That you find joy
In the little things in life
And that you always find your way home.
