Peace on Earth
seems far away
as we muddle about
from day-to-day.

Sing the song
of Peace on Earth,
see each person’s
gifts and worth.

Pass not judgment,
hear instead the sighs
of Peace on Earth
from he – or she – who cries.

May I make time to think
of a kindness I can birth
to bring about
Peace on Earth.

2020 has left us reeling and maybe a bit rattled about what lies ahead. I wrote this poem with hope in my heart.


Everything in its time

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven… Ecclesiastes 3:1


I await Your timing, Lord,
but in the waiting, let me share,
gift by gift, day by day
so others know Your love and care.

In the labyrinth of my days
this moment is all I know,
Everything in its time
shapes my life’s ebb and flow.

Must I wait for You
to plant the garden now?
Must I wait for You
to show me how?

Everything will come to be
in Your time and by Your will
as I live each moment
my purpose to fulfill.

Lord, grant that every day,
I let You define the pace
for how I use my gifts
to make this world a better place.
