BUILDING BRIDGES



Let’s build a bridge together,
That arches through the years,
Revisiting in memory,
Dreams we both held dear.
A time when we built castles,
As we walked in the rain,
Sketching dreams in vapor,
On life’s window pane.
Our fancies lived a moment,
The bubbles soon would burst,
Each would soon face heartache,
Each would experience hurt.
Can we bridge the distance?
Can a way be found,
To breach the years between us?
Can we find common ground?
A time that we remember,
Like it was yesterday,
Could link us to the present
If love could have its way.

THE WORD AND I


Day has yet to blossom,
Night has yet to pale,
The sky has yet to put away,
Her star embroidered veil.
Dawn will keep its promise,
As it ushers a new day,
Responding to Your call I come,
To watch with You and pray.

My Friend and my Beloved,
How sweet it is to be,
With God who deigns to make Himself
Accessible to me.
On fire with the Spirit,
Love overwhelms my soul,
God Almighty reaches out,
To heal and make me whole.

In reverential silence,
I worship You in awe,
Wonderstruck that I am loved
By You despite my flaws.
Grant me grace dear Jesus,
Sufficient for today,
To take my cross and follow You,
Along the narrow way.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY


Today the tears spilled over,
As I began to pray,
I thought about my little girl,
Whose birthday is today.

God’s little baby blossom,
Her mission was to be,
The instrument that helped me,
Experience Calvary.

He walked me through the Scriptures,
He helped me find relief,
The Word of God consoled me
And helped to ease my grief.

After slight affliction,
Come blessings manifold,
In the furnace of His Love,
He purifies each soul.

In dying with the Savior,
We rise anew to life ,
Redeemed, my baby lives again,
Eternally in Christ.

Myra D’Souza / 10 November 2009


Wisdom 2:23--3:1, 5-6 & 9
God created man to be immortal in the likeness of His own nature...
The souls of the just are in the hands of God and no torment shall touch them. After slight affliction will come great blessings, for God has tried them and found them worthy to be with Him, after testing them as gold in the furnace, He has accepted them as a holocaust. Those who trust in Him will penetrate the truth, those who are faithful will live with Him in love, for His grace and mercy are for His chosen ones.

HELP MY UNBELIEF


I built a fence then shut the gate,
I sealed and barred the doors,
I checked each window yet again,
Then curled up on the floor.

I wanted neither neighbor,
Nor friend, nor family,
To share my pain and bitterness,
And offer sympathy.

My wounded pride I nurtured,
My hurting heart I nursed,
My stricken spirit cowered,
My life I thought was cursed.

Afraid to ask forgiveness,
Too ashamed to beg,
Too proud to say that I was wrong,
Too angry to forget.

I've lost the joy of childhood,
The promise of my youth,
They were all a fantasy,
A figment of the truth.

I've lost the dream of innocence,
I dreamed in early years,
The spring of those sweet visions,
Now dimmed by many tears.

I long to have a Savior,
I long to have redress,
I long for new beginnings,
I long for happiness.

I do not know the Father,
I know little of His Son,
How then can I ask pardon
For all the wrongs I've done?

They tell me if I would I could
Get on my knees and say,
"Lord Jesus, please forgive me,
Wash all my sins away."

Lack of faith and sin my Lord,
Have yielded endless grief,
In Your mercy and compassion,
Help my unbelief!
