Pathways and Portals

Pathways and portals
The entrance of faith
Into my life wend beginnings of grace
Who is it that pauses
Who is it that waits
I am who pauses
You patiently wait
Preparing the pathways
But I hesitate
Do I through this portal
Pass into new faith
Onto new pathways
Trusting in Grace

Jesus, please love me—such as I am
I’m learning to love You the best way I can.

Sand Dancer

Sand Dancing

Feather light she whirls on tiptoe
Diaphanous gown swings fair and free
A lithesome figure in pale star-glow
Lost in joy beside the sea

Hemmed in by tidal pools and ocean
Weaving lines beneath the moon
Rapt in the never-ending motion
Her steps draw closer to the dune

Sandy shadows mirror grace
Footprints follow in her wake
Sea foam laughs creating lace
Atop the waves that toss and break

Sand-danced love lifts up to God
A yielded spirit filled with peace
Praiseful rhythm meant to laud
Designs a prayer that does not cease
