The silence 
In the roaring of those tides
God is a river

Thank You, Lord

Thank you, Lord
For daily bread.
Thank you for your blessings,
And a roof over my head.

Thank you for a warm house,
And for clothes to wear too.
Without your help, Lord
I don’t know what I would do.

Thank you for my family
And for their warm love.
Thank you for good friends,
And for your wisdom from above.

Thank you for good health
And for strength for each new day.
Let me ever show gratitude,
For your blessings along the way.

A Thankful Thought

If there was one forgotten Thank You
Or when spoken was most hastily said
I ask for your pardon
With these following Thank You's ahead

Thank you for your gentle touch
Upon reaching for my hand
Thank you for your loving smiles
Which helps me understand

Thank you for your calm
It settles all my fears
Thank you for your stay
And touching my last tear

Thank you for your stance
Fearless and so strong
Ridding me of those
Who only do me wrong

Thank you for your lead
When I begin to stray
Thank you for your find
When I had lost my way

Thank you for your Faith
When I was in wrong
Thank you for your words
It's these that make me strong

And thanks but for the Grace of God
This blessing He sends
You from Him, bestowed on me,
At last, "A True Friend!"

On Grandma’s bedroom wall hung pencil sketches
To inspire me and draw me in, never fail
The hands in prayer our daily blessing fetches
The cuffs rolled back, work ready, in the detail

The fingerprint motif of light on hands
To give us notice we are unique – and His
Strong thumb accentuating Holy Bands
Steeple elongated fingers, preaching Bliss

On The Tree, He died for our earthly sins
(The cross marked in the veins of the left hand)
He wished to spare us the suffering since
Love and compassion, for which we should stand

Only in Truth can we realise beauty
The Hands setting the example of: “Thank Ye!

[Poetry form used: Sonnet]

If we do not live in Truth, a God given opportunity which we must embrace, then the beauty of all that we perceive will pass us by. ~ Su Crous

Walk with Me Lord

Father walk ahead so I may follow
Walk behind to catch me when I fall
And if my faith grows stronger
It’s because you walked beside me most of all.

Thank You Lord

Thank you for this church, Lord,
be it ever so humble and  plain.
When I come into this house,
I feel your Holy Spirit near…
Speaking to me, guiding me, comforting me,
Again, and again, and again!!!

Abundant Touch

blood, sweat, and tears
nailed to a cross
crown full of thorns
your life was lost
for me, a worthless sinner
for me
a new beginning
I leave the past where it remains
I've been transformed
I've been restored
condemned no more
I wear the chains no more
I am free

Thanks God

Thanks God for letting me wake up today.
Thanks God for letting me live another day.
Thanks God for letting me have food and not to suffer from starvation.
Thanks God for being my best friend and also for being my salvation.
Thanks God for letting me have a house and not to be homeless.
Thanks God for the love you've given, you truly are the greatest.
Thanks God for everything that I have, it's nice to know that you care.
Thanks God for not abandoning me, thanks for always being there.

I Thank You Lord

I thank you, Lord, 
For every drop of blood
That spilled from you
The day that you died.
For every bruise…
For every snap of the whip,
That fell on your back
As you cried.

I thank you
For the mocking and scourging,
And blasphemy that you endured.
For the crown of thorns placed upon your head,
For each nail that tore your flesh,
And the spear that pierced your side,
After you were dead.

I thank you
For being obedient even unto death,
When you had power to deliver yourself.
For humbling yourself by coming into the world,
And dying for us on a cross… the cruelest death.

Lord, I thank you.

I Started my Day this Way

As the morning light arose on this beautiful day,
I could not stay, in bed and play, but instead?? 
I rose and Prayed to God This way:

My Glorious Heavenly Father:

I Thank you for the first conscious breathe I took,
And the eyes that I gently opened to see and look.

For the ears that are used to help me hear, 
And for your promising word that keeps my head clear.

I Thank you for the wisdom that denies me from being dumb, 
also the lessons I've learned and blessings from it yet to come.

Oh Lord, Thanks for the awesome and overwhelming love in my heart,
that allows me to feel like you've given me each day a brand new start.

Thank you father for your endless Mercy and undeserving Grace,
And most definitely for your son Jesus, who died in my place.

May you continue to guide my steps in your WILL, not my own,
For it was my will that kept me in trouble, confused, lost and alone.

May you continue to watch over those I Love. And for those I dislike please lend
Your spirit of forgiveness in ME, ...In JESUS NAME I PRAY ....AMEN
