Your Silent Heart


Pray with less and less
words until
only your silent heart
filled with love remains.

Heavenly Fragrance


The first act of my soul
as I awaken is a prayer
of gratitude which sweetens
my day, those few moments
with God fills me with peace
and strengthens me to
follow His direction
throughout the day.

The lingering moments
before sleep ends my day
in contemplation
opening my heart to understand
what God would have me know.

I touch these moments with
tender prayers of gratitude
along the way infusing
my soul with the heavenly
fragrance of God’s nearness.

All Hours

May I do Thy will
with an eager soul
dedicating my life
to Thy complete control

A loving prayer
to start my day
makes everything easier
along the way

Mid-day and evening
and all the hours between
may I worship you
my Lord, my King

Empty Prayers

A prayer not followed
by action rings hollow and cold.
Allow prayer to open your heart
connect you to the Divine
that you then may go forth
and serve the Lord
with joy and gratitude.

Power of Silent Prayer


Silent prayers are often
more honest than those
with many words.
Sit quietly in receptivity
open to hear the heart
of the Lord.

Empty Holidays


Feasts, celebrations, holidays
yet one hour of our heart
turned toward God
feels more joy than
earthly celebrations
can ever provide.

The Power of Love


Oh, how your harsh words
burn and batter the soul
bitter, wrathful, full of resentment
they crush the hearts of others.

Ah, but kind words
sweet encouraging
free of judgement
lift the soul
with their quiet
comfort and love.
