The Winds of Autumn
 
The winds of autumn come and blow,     
warmth across my heart to overflow.
 
Deep from the past, and far from now;
back, behind myself, to where I allow.
 
The winds of autumn bring to mind,
all those things thought left behind . . .
 
Behind to stay, never to find,
strength of its own to finally unwind . . .
 
Unwind the story of bye-gone days,
slowly revealing those horrid ways.
 
The winds of autumn force to mind,
the spring long forgotten to defend.
 
This gentle breeze comes for me,
that I might join in winter’s glee.

Mercy of the Lord
 
 Within the Holy Scriptures, 
 Love is savored as the prevailing breeze
 by way of the Spirit of God, which is named Holy. 
 
It permeates every word, space,
thought, and action that is provoked
by its very existence.
 
Inside of that Love dwells God’s
Gift of Forgiveness. One cannot be held
without the other.                                 
 
But let it not be mistaken for an extension
of reprieve without accountability.
 
True Forgiveness allows for healthy boundaries
until trust might be regained.
 
There are those times, however, that trust
must be held in reserve
for an extended amount of time.
 
In such a case, the Gift of Forgiveness
can be activated between God and
the violated person even without
the working and repentant
participation of the one who caused the offense.
 
Those who continually hold the
Gift of Forgiveness
in their heart will live a life
of Victory over all losses, real and perceived.
 
It is only through the Gifts of God’s Grace
and His Forgiveness that we are truly released
into a Freedom that is eternally Alive and Fruitful.

In The Quiet of This Hour
 
In the quiet of this hour,
I will rest upon Your power.
Your Faithfulness my strength shall be,
in the quiet of this hour.
 
Like a prison wall that falls,
You are there when someone calls.
The greatest Gift to all mankind
is the Truth that You unbind.
 
So my Heart with Joy shall dance,
and my Spirit You'll enhance.
For in the morning dawn shall break,
in the quiet of this hour.
 
As a dove takes flight above,
You are there with all Your Love.
To break the chains of evil ways,
that we might live Free our days. 
 
And so again I praise You, Lord,
as I bow to You adored.
Thanksgiving fills my heart aglow,
in the quiet of this hour.

Dear Lord Jesus . . .
 
Be my Shield,
Be my Guide;
 
Let me run 
and never hide. 
 
Protect me now 
from satan's snare;
 
Forever safe
and in your care.
 
In Your Name, Jesus. Amen

Castle Fortress
 
It may be true that I have not walked in your
shoes. But God has. And He has walked every step
of the way behind you as well as ahead of you.
 
God's truth is revealed in II Corinthians 1:4:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, Who comforts us
in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort
those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with
which we ourselves are comforted by God.
 
This comfort-scripture means that God bestows a whole comfort, completely and entirely altogether. The
comfort with which we are comforted by Him
maintains a consistent expression. The balance at the
end of the Ledger of All Time is always zero. 
There are no carryovers with God!
    
It is only when we decide to love and need one another that we have no lack. Accepting and allowing this
humble act, we are accepting God's gift of provision and
prosperity of spirit to our very own person.
     
In addition to offering comfort, Corinthians
refers to God's comfort as given in all tribulation, comforting with facility toward all trials
and ordeals. No matter which one . . . or when,
where, or how . . . we are able to comfort others in
any struggle or difficulty, even though it
be different from our own.
         
As we determine to communicate God's
consoling embrace to others, we
immediately partake in contributing to
God's releasing power that He imparts all around.
 
God's perfect comfort has been made so that it will manifest its reassuring love in and through the
saints of His Kingdom here on earth.
 
Finally, we must remember this:
the comfort that is given away from the heart
never, ever vanishes or disappears,
as it is kept, like the fortress of a castle,
in the hearts of those we touch.

My Shield
 
At certain times in our childhood, my sister
and I ventured into unknown, turbulent waters together. In those times I was set in a sure place, in the wake
of her gallant protection and her unwavering resolve.
 
She led, cutting a clear path for the journey ahead; and I followed, keeping directly behind her in compliant
pursuit. She carried the arrows sent in flight
toward the enemy; and I scurried after her,
being kept away from coming storms.
 
In God’s perfect timing, and in His perfected grace, my sister, my protector of sorts, became part of
God’s Divine Completion and He called her to
His Eternal Home in 2010.
 
She was a valiant warrior in her appreciation of Spiritual Warfare, sacrificially carrying others to the Throne of
God over and over and over again.
 
To her tribute, many are the Saints who now enjoy
the Blessing of Eternal Salvation through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
