Easter Morning

Imagine


With eyes closed,

Imagine the following:

It is the first day of your life-

Never been sad,

Never been mad,

Never been hurt;

No shame,

No guilt,

No regret;

Free to be happy,

Free to be content,

Free to be inquisitive.


The blood of Christ

Has taken away all sins and regrets.

This is your new life, so:

Release the past,

Release the pain,

Release the people;

Open your mind,

Open your heart,

Open your spirit;

Live in the Now,

Live in the Oneness,

Live in the Kingdom.


Believe in the gift of freedom

That Jesus gave us on the cross.

Believe in the love that created us-

Unconditional and limitless.

Believe in the life that God’s grace

Has freed us to experience.

Be this help to those who are seeking God.

Be this love with those in your life.

Be this forgiveness so needed in the world.

Give thanks every day for this freedom!

Give thanks every day for this love!

Give thanks every day for this grace!

The Lord has Risen! Happy Easter!

Freedom (4th of July)

Freedom

(4th of July)

 

 

The sun has walked below the horizon,

And the plants sigh, as the ground cools

From the heat of the day.

 

Car doors slam,

And motors rev –

Eager to be off.

 

Tires touch pavement,

And wander down the road

To find the perfect viewing location.

 

The sky slowly fades from blue to black,

As inky silhouettes stretch and chatter

About the fun they have had during the day.

 

At the appointed proper darkness,

Sparkles of light appear

Over the town.

 

Each flower of breathtaking light

Chases the other,

As they go higher and higher.

 

Freedom tickles their heels,

As they race across the sky,

Glowing with delight.

 

The sky soon fills with fireworks,

And the oohs and ahs from the crowd

Applaud their performance.

 

When the curtain of darkness at last returns,

The silhouettes sigh and smile.

Then, they load up and head back home to bed.
