There You Are
in the day that tomorrow brings, I see you smiling. Your eyes are sparkling with the dances that light in a new horizon.
You are gathering, swelling, like waters that fill into rivers that pour Love into view, You are new.
in the day that tomorrow brings I see you healed, your sweetened heart revealed. Your life joins with beloveds, in an eternal embrace. You are in the arms of grace.
There you are
in the dawn that rises up to meet you, wrapped by the most tender mercies and a blanket of prayers.
Entwined, encouraged and seen. You are with each good thing. You are inside of hope’s dream. There. I see you.
There you are., my Dearest not a far smile away waking in the Promise of a bold new Day.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 —He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
Isaiah 43:18-19 —“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
In the sweetness of brushes with air drifts that paint,
a lightness is catching the soft songs of saints.
Hush, oh so new, this is a virgin heart’s due,
Born in the dawn, in the silent moon’s hue.
Fragile the silence that draws back the veils.
It breathes in and out with mysterious wails.
Tipping all stance and former commands,
I bend at the door of His Glory and stand.
Soft comes the Light in its touch to embrace,
I am covered in wonder, in rapture and grace.
Like a seedling that breaks with all might through the ground,
I burst with a joy that at last, I am found.

“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep.” Psalm 36:5-6
“His banner over me is love.” Song of Songs 2:4
“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death…Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.” Song of Songs 8:6-7
Woman heart rising, love lifts, breaths pray,
Through the night passing, now in light’s day. Easing through veils, through curtains that drift, chambers to Home that long for God’s way.
This is a river, one bending and long,
Waters so yielding, faithful and strong. Throughout tides calling, all falling to One Searching the vast for the ocean’s first Sun.
Woman heart rising, called out to pray,
Full in the stretch of unwinding new day. Binding the wounds of all valleys that thirst, This, in the healing that rains in the heart’s burst.
