I Cannot Know

"I do not know." That statement is true
Of many remarks between me and you.
"I cannot know." That statement is false.
How can you prove it? It has no pulse
Of life, it cannot be true
Unless you can show me some clue.
How do you know that you cannot know?
Has some one told you? Have you seen the show?
Have you read a book about logical thought?
Have you explored the possible and the not?

What evidence supports the assertion you make?
What thoughts underpin the position you take?
Have you considered all matters?
Have you consumed logic's platters?
Are you omniscient?

Omniscient, oh no, for then you would know
That thing you profess now not to know.
If not omniscient, then I must ask
How do you perform this impossible task
Of knowing so certain that you cannot know?

And further I ask a question of you
Perhaps you can answer and show what is true.
Can others eat of your forbidden tree?
Can they know your impossibility?
Can I know a thought that you can't?
Is knowledge such a selective plant?

Or have you considered that you, yourself, are able
To make knowledge impossible?
Do you refuse to search out the facts
Hiding behind the facade of "I can't"?

Perhaps you prefer a system like flies
Of thoughts fleeing, flying, falling from skies,
Gathering here to feast off this bone
Gathering there to rest on that stone.
One thought is not better, nor is it worse
As long as we're happy and have something to curse.

But a question I ask, within logic's range,
How does your preference, reality change?
How does your choice affect what is right?
How does your liking reduce truth's might?

Unknowns become known. Truth does prevail.
Often one thought rips open the veil
Exposing to light, what could not be known
Making it clear that the can't can be shown.

"I cannot know." But what if God said?
Certainly He knows, unless He is dead
Or maybe He lied to deceive us for fun
But I hardly believe that, we've seen His Son.

Who can contend that Jesus was bad?
Who can contend that the disciples were had?
Who can contend that the books they inscribed
Were filled with the words of that which they lied?

If you think it is so, then perhaps, just maybe
You should put to the test, the words that you see.
If false, you have gained a delightful discovery
Of fiction and facts, of hormones and history.
You've lost nothing at all by putting to test
The words of this book. In peace you may rest.

But if true, God speaks to us all.
If true, we must obey His great call.
If true, there's a hell for His foe
And for each one who claims, "I cannot know."

"I cannot know" is contrary to faith,
Rejecting revelation, the word that God saith.
Heaven awaits those who believe
And the truth of His Word receive.

"I cannot know" A bold statement to me.
How do you know that truth cannot be?
How do you know that God up above
Has not given His Word, His truth, and His love?
"I do not know" that I can believe.
"I cannot know"--you're pulling my sleeve.

Swaying Trees and M&Ms

Falling Tears
My heart beats a song
in your mountain, God
just sitting alone.
Wondering...
what's Your message?
what's Your call?
why do You ask of me to give You my all?
On my own, i gaze upon the stars
and envision your face with bruises
and scars...
Blood, deep scarlet
flowing, falling freely
for the wretched soul that's me
And so i whisper a love song
as the first rays color the sky
To You,
i lift up my head
and part my lips in prayer
once again,
i'll lay it all down
Lover of my soul...
here is my heart
hear is my soul
here is my will...
My life is not my own
but Yours
forever more.

Thank You Lord

Thank you, Lord
For everything you have done
Thank you, Lord,
For saying "Ask, and I shall grant"

Thank you, Lord
For not leaving me in Devil's hands
Thank you, Lord,
For letting me meet X-Japan

Thank you, Lord
For Jesus, your son
Thank you, Lord
For staying with us even in the long run

Thank you, Lord
For every sacrifice I have to make
Thank you, Lord
For every little blessings I have to take

Thank you, Lord
For my happiness
Thank you Lord
For helping me not to curse

Thank you, Lord
For my life
Thank you, Lord
For not letting me strife

Thank you, Lord
For your presence
Thank you, Lord
For every dollar and cent

Thank you, Lord
For letting me know you
And thank you, Lord
For every drop of morning dew
That drops upon a bright new sunrise
Knowing that I wouldn't carry the burdens of yesterday
Today to pay a price.

In The Arms Of an Angel



In the arms of an Angel she gently lay
Soft caress of down and feathers upon her face
Safe protected without care
nestled in Heaven's grace

In the arms of an Angel she was lifted
beyond the stars in the night sky
In moonlight and moonbeams she was set free to fly
From the arms of an Angel she took a leap of faith
not knowing where she would land
In the instant she did so in the moment she let go
the Angel took her hand

In the arms of an Angel
all was forgiven all was released
all pain all sorrow
and the rainbows appeared in the sky
with a promise of a bright tomorrow

In the arms of an Angel
she wept those unshed tears
for the forgotten dreams of childhood years

In the arms of an Angel she flew
into the sky the heavens so blue
Spirit it lifted her higher
and her soul it did sing
and the gift of compassion love understanding
to her the Angels did bring

An Apology and God's Secrets


An Apology

He apologized! ~

And all of Heaven's bells
pealed out and rang.

He apologized!! ~

His guardian angel
cartwheeled, danced and sang.

He'd wrestled with his stubborn pride
And set that foolish thing aside,
Such joy was mine I almost cried ~

He apologized!!!

--Connie

"For I will declare mine iniquity;
I will be sorry for my sin."
(Psalm 38:18 KJV)

Walk a Mile

Walk a mile in my shoes
I hear the words pierce the air
I ponder this very deeply
Compelling me this thought to share

Walk a mile in His shoes if you dare
With a crown of thorns raining red
A cross upon which His shoulders bare
Feel the pain as blood is shed

The eyes of hatred and of greed
His back broken heavy with weight
Stones cutting at His feet
Strength throughout His knowing fate

Save the world from its own end
Those threatened by His Love
Travel onward although His friends
Betrayed Him yet He always Loved

Heal the sick while others say
It was a trick and He's a fraud
Your "cross" though heavy it may seem
Until you see the Son of God's

The Bridge of love

Each one of you is accompanied
By a soul from the world so bright
By a guide,companion or teacher
That will lead you by their wonderful light

Someone who has the affinity with your spirit
For where love is there in no seperation
For if a loved one is in spirit
There is always a celebration

The etheric bridge can be crossed
Angels and your loved ones are there
By just raising your conscious mind
Memories and thoughts you will share

By realising this truth within yourself
You can create the bridge of love
By believing in God the Father
You will converse with those above

When doubts assail your understanding
It's only the promptings of your lower sight
The material self that cuts you off from loved ones
Who live in the world of light?

This message is for those who need comfort
Reassurance of loved ones remain
The spirit of love never dies or forgotten
And there personalities are just the same

A Land Beyond

This poem is dedicated to all who believe their is life after death, and that our spirit continues after physical death.

Beyond this land of beauty,
Is a land that shines so bright?
Where peace and harmony stand side by side,
All bathed in Gods own light.

It is the home of our spirit friends,
Who watch over us each day?
They influence our daily lives,
In the things, we do and say.

It is the home of our dear ones,
Whoís material life came to an end,
Who now live in the world of spirit?
Their love to us they send.

There is no death but eternal life,
That is what lies ahead for all,
A great adventure to experience,
When we each receive the call.

Place your trust in God,
As he places his trust in you,
Give all you can to your fellow man,
Let Godís light shine bright and true ...

Created by God

To be His children.
We find our way
Home to Him.

Working through the problems,
Learning from the experiences,
Finding the rhythm of life, and
Seeing the progress made.

Realizing itís not about us, but
Helping those in need.
Finding joy in the now, and
Growing as we go.

Uniting with our brothers and sisters.
Building a strong and happy family.
Bringing peace to every moment.
Letting love lead the way.

We are our Fatherís joy.
We have our Fatherís love.
Give thanks for God in our life.
Give thanks for Jesus leading the way.

Forgiving Self: Embracing Self

Calm winds blow across your face
Chasing ghosts of past indiscretions
into vast forgiveness
Let go and let the you of
Today
Present magnificence to the world!

Those friends who hold onto
Old mistakes,
Reopening old wounds,
Replaying broken tunes;
Chase those blues
Away from you!

Negative vibes can no longer hide
Within your calm and
Serene soul of
Today!
Embracing self
Loving self
Forgiving self
Empowering self
Self-love
Self-hugs
Self-indulge
In kindness
In compassion
In love with every action!

Spreading joy, instead of war!

Embracing self!
Enjoying self!
Having patience with self!
Freedom from pain!
Living again!!

Give yourself a break
Today!
Feel the winds blow across your face
Embrace yourself!
You deserve a break...

"Live and let live."

Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
God gives every bird its food,
But He does not throw it into its nest.
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses more;
He who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are acts of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
The tongue weighs practically nothing,
But so few people can hold it.
Friends, you and me....
you brought another friend...
and then there were 3...
we started our group...
Our circle of friends...
and like that circle...
there is no beginning or end..

The Force Of God

We are part of the God force,
It lies in all those that see,
A vision of truth, a vision of love,
A vision that all men are free,
For the light of love that lies dormant,
Can be lit by all those that care,
Can be kindled with love,
Can be kindled with hope,
For qualities we all should share.

We are all part of the God force,
A force that only seeks peace,
A vision the world stops killing,
Where torture and wars will all cease,
Let that which lies dormant,
Be a beacon to all in a storm,
Let them bathe the light that is within,
Draw them close, let the flame keep them warm.

We are all part of the God force,
For your love will have lit the light,
For the vision of truth, and the vision of love,
In others will forever burn bright,
So follow the path you have chosen,
Ask nothing in return,
Just be a beacon to those in darkness,
Shine forth, so men can learn.

Take from that God force,
All the power that you will need,
To give hope to the lost and bewildered,
And Knowledge for all men to feed,
Then those visions of truth, and those visions of love,
Will only be visions in your mind,
For the light of God has entered,
To teach the world to be kind

Worlds Set Apart
Oh, The beauty of the forest streams;
Where high above the eagle screams,
And from the mountains echoes call;
I hear a distant waterfall.

I walk the rocks along the stream;
I ponder this a wondrous scene.
Natures smells and sights and sounds;
God s blessings everywhere abound.

Pink Rhododendron in full bloom;
I bow to smell it's sweet perfume,
And as my eyes lift up I see;
There stands a deer, he looks at me.

He stands just by the waters edge;
To watch him drink a privilege.
Then off he runs through yonder trees;
And disappears through forest leaves.

I feel so very blessed today;
To see God's wonders on display.
For through them He calls out to man;
I have a purpose, I have a plan.

For by design He made us all.
The fields, the trees, and mountains tall.
The deer beside the flowing stream;
Speaks of our God who can Redeem.

For in this world of natures thrills;
Like flowers spread across the hills.
There is a world that's set a apart;
It is the world within your heart.

One of two worlds, abide in you;
A place of peace and morning dew,
Or thirsting desert wasting way.
That lives in night, while it is day.

And as He touched this world with all;
It s blessing, like the waterfall.
He'll touch the heart that trust in Him;
With His sweet rest and peace within.

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee."
Isaiah 26:3

Teach Me Thy Will

Lord teach me to do thy will,
without stumbling or slips.
Then I will pay thy divine bill,
with thanks from humble lips.

Teach me to live a holy life,
free from all worldly lust.
Free from gossip and strife,
and all the things I must.

Teach me to love the neighbor,
who is on the road of the lost.
Then I will pray with much labor,
that he repent before the cost.

Teach me all about thy grace,
and love you have for us all.
Don't let me falter in the race,
or fail to hear my Saviour call.

Expression In Silence

To be still in the emptiness
in the silence

To be still and hear
the calling of my soul

To be touched by the light
that infuses my body
with life

Light that gives me strength
as I allow myself
to tap into
a knowing of truth

In silence I can hear
the quiet whisper
of love itself

I can hear
the laughter of joy
as it encourages me
to open myself
ever so gently
to touch
the heart of another

In silence I can hear
the message
from my own heart
beating in time
giving me
the breath of life
that makes way
for energy,
movement and expansion
of my truest Self

A Self that is embraced,
honored and loved

Living in faith
Surrounded by hope
Protected by the light
that is,in fact,
the essence of what is

It is in the silence
of my soul
that I am able
to fully connect
to the divine light
That lives within,
shines through
and connects us all.

IF WE COULD SEE BEYOND TODAY

If we could see beyond today

As God can see,

If all the clouds should roll away,

The shadows flee;

O'er present grief's we would not fret,

Each sorrow we would soon forget,

For many joys are waiting yet

For you and me.

If we could know beyond today

As God doth know,

Why dearest treasures pass away,

And tears must flow;

And why the darkness leads to light,

Why dreary days will soon grow bright,

Some day life's wrong will be made right,

Faith tells us so.

If we could see, if we could know

We often say,

But God in love a veil doth throw

Across our way.

We cannot see what lies before,

And so we cling to Him the more,

He leads us till this life is o'er,

Trust and obey.

Who?

Who wrote the tune the songbird sings?
Who made the diamonds we wear on rings?

Who caused the snow and rain to fall?
Who made spring, winter, summer and fall?

Who gave man a woman to love?
Who made the clouds and sky above?

Who lights the stars and moon in the night?
Who makes heaven and beyond so bright?

Who gives us babies we follow till death?
Who made us able to speak with our breath?

Who gives us heroes willing to die?
Who made the tears we shed as we cry?

Who shows us hope and guides our way?
The same one who loves us night and day

When We Let Him Have Control

Why is it as though
We struggle so much
And live in constant despair?
We don't need to carry
Such burdensome loads
But should go to God in prayer

Give Him your burdens
And all of your hurts
Just lay them at His feet
He's such a big God
He can handle it all
And watches over His sheep

He cares so much more
Than we'll ever know
And just wants the best for our lives
Each one of his children
Has so much potential
If weíll only begin to rise

To be all that God
Has intended us to be
To walk through His open doors
We need to stay focused
And open to God
And put our trust in the Lord

For when we all come
To realize God's love
Our hurts will not have a hold
For God's love will cover
And free us from fear
As we give Him total control.

When The Unexpected Comes

Through the unexpected things
That happens in our lives
We draw from God the strength we need
To carry on with Christ

For He will always hold us up
Whenever it gets too tough
And carry us through the hardest times
When we canít feel His love

I know that at these times we feel
Abandoned by our Lord
We wonder what is going on
We canít feel His presence at all

But He has not abandoned us
Nor forsaken us in our need
He allows the unexpected things
Be life lessons we should heed

So we will grow with deeper faith
And be strengthened in the Lord
Then when we face the storms of life
Weíll be stronger than before

So when the unexpected comes
Remember Godís in control
And nothing in life is ever wasted
But are memories that we hold

So when others come across our path
That are facing what weíve faced
Weíre more than able to share Godís love
And touch them with His grace.

A Haughty Heart


"Pride goeth before destruction,
and an haughty spirit before a fall."
(Proverbs 16:18 KJV)


You ruled life from the scorner's seat,
O, stupid, foolish heart!
A criticizing know-it-all,
You thought you were so smart!
When it came time for judging folks
You always jumped right in;
Behind the skirts of Honesty
You pointed out each sin.
So quick to see things black-and-white,
So you-are-wrong-and-I-am-right,
So pleased with Self, so smug inside,
So judgmental, so full of pride.

No backslider, fallen from Grace,
Could stop your preaching in his face,
Self-righteous blood would course through you
As you'd spout forth the things you "knew" ~
How he could never be God's tool!
O, haughty heart! Exalted fool!

Thank God His ways are not your own,
Had you but guessed! Had you but known!
Your pompous pride God could not stand,
So He took matters in His hand.

O, wicked, vain, conceited heart!
God took your world, tore it apart.
And when His plan was made complete,
He'd pulled you from the scorner's seat.
No pedestal to stand upon,
Your ego bruised, your self-pride gone;
No other heart could you condemn,
For you were now the same as them.

O, broken, bleeding, contrite heart!
God had to smash your world apart!
You were so sure, self-satisfied,
So steeped in sanctimonious pride!
A legalistic fool were you!
God had to break your pride in two!
And in its stead He planted love,
A tolerance born from up above;
More merciful...compassionate, too,
No longer judge-and-jury, you.

Now when you spy a pious pose ~
Disdainful gaze down "spiritual" nose,
You long to bare your scars and say:
"Don't judge...it might be you someday!"

And when you face your Judge on high,
I think you'll see Him smile and sigh:
"Beloved child ~ I rule alone ~
There's room for One upon My Throne!"

--Connie

"Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged..."
(Matthew 7:1-2a, KJV)

We Matter To God

As we come before you Lord
And worship at your feet
You pour out your blessings upon us
And meet us in our need

Whatever we are facing
We can leave it with you Lord
And walk away with confidence
Knowing you will bear it all

For you are God almighty
Our God in whom we trust
To unload us of our burdens
And shower us with love

Lord you are so wonderful
To care about our lives
Each small, insignificant detail
Each tear that we cry

For everything about us Lord
Is so important to you
You want to be involved in our lives
In everything we do

So I can't help but praise you
For the loving God you are
You care so much for every soul
And you're never very far

That we cannot touch your heart
Every time we come to pray
And we can come into your presence
Each and every day

Return
Have you ever heard a whisper
in between your dreams
like in the middle of the mist
something unknown
something unseen
cracking up the silence
within your sleep?
Have you?
Try to remember
back in time
and you will find,
you will see
That it was me.
It was I
when we were one at once
facing each other
like the sun to the moon
like the evening to the dawn
like the night to the day...
We were both
and we were one
like a mirror to each other;
identical water drops
descending in a fall
to the cascade of this life
and in the water
we were absorbed
and we were lost.
We passed through rivers
We were at the ocean floor,
Looking for each other
Meeting many souls,
And we wanted to travel
As far as to the sun
To the galaxies and go beyond
And we invented in eternity
For each one of us
Water pumps of soap
To go floating
Through the Universe
As childlike souls,
Forever young.
Because You and I
Were destined
To this return!

Jesus Gives Us Freedom!

You give us
freedom to be
our true self

You let us fly
On the wings
of faith and dreams

We listen to
your voice and
our soul responds with love

How can we
not live in the
holiness of your presence?

How can we not
yearn to be your
song of forgiveness?

You are life!
You are compassion!
You are our breathe!

Crossroads


Life is made of choices
It's not a trick of fate
We wake up every morning
To a fresh, clean slate
Like a never ending road
Our journey is our own
No one can take it for us
We have to walk alone

not a roll of the dice
Or luck on our side
It's the mountains we climb
The sins we can't hide
It's trusting in the Lord
To show you the way
To give you strength and courage
To live another day

Life is full of crossroads
We choose which path we take
We pray we walk the right one
In decisions that we make
Some roads are dark and lonely
Others show joy and light
On a wing and a prayer
Will you travel left or right?

Patience, Time and Hope

Iíve been waiting for you
On a Train Station
Itís been days
Iím still waiting, for you.

Iíve been waiting for you
In the Bus Station
Itís been months
Will I give up?

Iíve been waiting for you
In my home
Itís been years
Can I still have hope for?

Iíve been waiting for you
In a terrace at my home
More years had passed by
Iím starting to give up.
The day, where I last saw you
You left a farewell note
I came running after you
Will I still see you?

The same place, that very day
I was taking my walks
You appeared, smiling
A hug, I gave, never lost hope, never given up.

Forever But Never

There so many things that I
Didn't have a chance to say
So many things I didn't do
It was just time after time
That I should be sorry for
I'm just sorry I had to put you through
All of drama that had been created
And all of the depression that I pursued
I know it's not the perfect thing to deal with
And saying sorry is the least i could do

I just thought that we would
Last forever
But then again I was wrong
So many times I thought of us
Together
But imaginations don't always hold strong
I have no words to say but
I didn't treat you right
And I'm extremely sorry
That all we did was fight
I just thought we'd be to together
Forever but now never

I guess this is the bad time to say
I still love you
But I hope you'll understand me
I just didn't give you the time
You deserved so much more then
But now your fine
So I guess I missed my chance
No more time for romance
And no more time for us
I guess it was just a rush
But I thought

I just thought that we would
Last forever
But then again I was wrong
So many times I thought of us
Together
But imaginations don't always hold strong
I have no words to say but
I didn't treat you right
And I'm extremely sorry
That all we did was fight
I just thought we'd be to together
Forever but now never

Now we're saying good-byes
As we go our separate ways
I guess reality
Has finally hit me
And the moment was too soon
I guessed
I tried
And I failed
To be there for you
Because I
Just thought

I just thought that we would
Last forever
But then again I was wrong
So many times I thought of us
Together
But imaginations don't always hold strong
I have no words to say but
I didn't treat you right
And I'm extremely sorry
That all we did was fight
I just thought we'd be to together
Forever but now never
Forever and ever but never.

The Field Of Yellow Tulips

It was a sunny, springtime day,
With warm breezes and a sunwashed sky:
And contented birds trilled their tunes,
But my mind was full of troubled sighs.

So many problems came to haunt,
And I could see no real reason why,
But as I ran through the park,
I missed my turn! Why even try?

I stopped to rest for a moment,
Beneath a tree atop a grassy knoll:
And as I glanced around me,
Joy bells began to toll.

For there before my weary stare,
Was a field of yellow tulips in full bloom,
Stretched as far as I could see,
And their burst fo color chased away my gloom!

I stared in sheer amazement,
I'd never seen so much gold,
All those lovely, yellow tulips,
Delightful and bold!

And I knew from deep within,
My dear Father was telling me,
Worrying makes you sad and sick,
I hope these tulips will set you free.

I stood there for a long moment,
Trying to take it all in,
And I thanked my precious Savior,
For giving me this silly grin.

And when I finally left this quiet place,
With it's handsome yellow rug,
I lifted my face toward heaven,
And sent my Father a big hug.

A Morning Prayer

Good morning, Dear Lord, how are You?
I just wanted to say 'hello;'
To let You know that I love You,
I simply wanted You to know.

That I think of You all the time,
You're the greatest part of my life;
I thank You for loving me, too,
You help me deal with worldly strife.

For being with me every day,
Thank You for taking walks with me;
For all the freedoms that You grant,
For allowing me to live free.

Thank You for family and friends,
And, of course, for all Your true love;
For all the blessings You send down,
The sun, moon and stars up above.

I thank You for Your sacrifice,
Dying for us, You shouldn't have done;
Simply because You cared so much,
All of our battles have been won.

Yes, it is a perfect morning,
This is such a great way to start;
Knowing You're with me all day long,
Having You deep, down in my heart.

So, Lord, have a wonderful day,
If I may be of help to You;
Just let me know in Your own way,
Whatever You ask, I will do.

My Bible

At times when I feel oh so low
I clutch my bible near
At times when I feel oh so scared
My bible is so dear
And then there's times when I am glad
And my bible shouts with praise
But regardless of the way I feel
I will read it all my days
For it to me was given
By my Lord who waits above
It is filled with all his Holiness
His might and special love
Through Saints I see his precious face
And feel His arms of love
But face to face I will see my Lord
When He takes me home above

Expression In Silence



To be still in the emptiness
in the silence

To be still and hear
the calling of my soul

To be touched by the light
that infuses my body
with life

Light that gives me strength
as I allow myself
to tap into
a knowing of truth

In silence I can hear
the quiet whisper
of love itself

I can hear
the laughter of joy
as it encourages me
to open myself
ever so gently
to touch
the heart of another

In silence I can hear
the message
from my own heart
beating in time
giving me
the breath of life
that makes way
for energy,
movement and expansion
of my truest Self

A Self that is embraced,
honored and loved

Living in faith
Surrounded by hope
Protected by the light
that is,in fact,
the essence of what is

It is in the silence
of my soul
that I am able
to fully connect
to the divine light
That lives within,
shines through
and connects us all.
