Did I suspect ..?

Dear God,

Sometimes it is worth the wait, for a dream to come true. Even dreams and wishes change. Didn’t we all know that ? And yet, this is a new thing, to know how much a person can be humbled within, to change. To never mind insult. To not even notice hate. To forgive move on, be smacking grateful for the view. Dearest Lord, did You know we could all change this much ? Esp me ?

Did I even know – I was a painting ? An instrument – strung with tension, chord and bar ; that this and that would be the song in the dark, in the light, in the roof top and other unheard of places…

Did we know the bigger picture – how could I at least – am this size, I thought, these here were just arms and feet… these here, were just eyes and ears and nose and toes… how could I have known, these are what tones and melodies, or discord are made of…

but now that I know – ah now that I know, and its been made clear… am staring anew, dear God…  there’s so much now I may not misunderstand….

never realised we are your song…

What happens when you pray ?

Conversing with you lord is edge-less words

wrapped with sounds of an Universe, opening,

re- opening my life,

like pages

of a book You wrote for me ….


You keep writing for me,

endlessly, as if,

as if there were just one of me to love,

is what prayer means to me…

The first song…

The words came out and met over my head,

what can you say ;

they ( words) have a life of their own, I am just rented space,

they are often too much to put on paper

and break into a song, dear God,

what made the first song, was it a river, a stream,

a scream, was it a rain drop pattern  drip – drop on a

pain, was it a cough, a sneeze, stammer that happened

with the rain….

Films & the human mind

Subconscious Creative Editors and Directors exist in little and large desks deep within and surface like busy ‘shoe-maker- elves’ , to re- re- rewrite our stories.


Can a movie- doctor the way we think ? What we do, what we watch, when we are least self conscious, is who we really are…maybe…..

Beloved, have you too…

…is a young and talented artist with heart and eyes that capture a Universe so rich with creativity. These are a few of his Stills – each tells a story. If a Picture can tell a thousand Words, this is it. To Caption each photograph here, would be near impossible,
for the heart of this 19 year old, looks from within, to his Maker. “Each of us has a certain Call on our lives, I am looking to God to fulfill the purpose for which I was born..”

” Beyond what eye has seen or ear has heard, nor entered the heart of man, such things has God prepared for those who call on His name..”
