Dry Seasons

Dry Seasons come into my heart
choking out the zeal within.
Dry Seasons, please depart.
LORD, cleanse me of my sin.

Refresh my spirit again
with your presence renew my soul.
Let me feel victorious within
Over my life take full control.

Dry Seasons leave me forever.
Green Growing Seasons return.
Worldliness and its ties sever.
Father for you let my heart yearn.

Let my need for you be as great
as my need for water or air.
On your Word may I meditate.
My lips forever your praise declare.

Then the dry Seasons will be gone
replaced by a new life with you.
A beautiful day will dawn
with a wonderful heavenly view.

Friendship's Declaration

Lilac and Red Rose
Compare them not to one another
Each possesses a fragrance their own
Different, but oh how delightful.

Beautiful to behold
Radiant, they stand together
Basking in the warmth of the sun
Sharing early morning dew.

Vanishing for a season
Together again at Spring's return.
Blooms forever entwined together
Exulting in friendship's declaration.

Judy Wood

Can't You See Me

Do you feel my comfort in the cool breeze
or my strength in a mighty oak tree?
Do you think of my power when you 
see my creation 
or my compassion when you notice
a weeping willow tree?
Do you see my love in the face
of a sweet child?
Look at their smile do you see me?
Are you reminded of my salvation
when you see a red rose?
Do you think of the blood my son
shed on the cross at Calvary?

You're always asking to see my presence.

Look around. Do you see me? I'm all around you.
You can see me in all my creation.

Anticipating the Journey

A journey of a lifetime begins.
Can you feel the excitement?
Is your pulse starting to race?
Imagine seeing His face.

Begin a new chapter as you
take that step into the unknown.
You know who is waiting.
Start the anticipating.

Sharing precious moments with Him.
Oh, the joy within your heart.
Be still before the Lord,
and you'll feel restored.

What will happen in life today,
whether trials or blessings.
It won't matter with Him by our side.
On this journey He'll be our guide.

Victory is Mine

God, I trust in you
and your great power.
You are my soul's refuge,
my safe tower.

I am so very blessed,
I never want to whine.
You do so much for me,
I want my light to shine.

I want my life to show
how awesome are your deeds,
you care for me and provide
all of my needs.

Because of all you do
victory is mine.
You are the mighty one
for whom I pine.

Quiet Moments With You

What a blessing
each lovely morn.
Time alone with you
and I feel reborn.

When you and I meet
my soul feels at peace.
You provide for my needs,
all my worries cease.

Thank you for quiet moments
when it's just you and me.
Praise abounds for your grace
and the blood that set me free.

Once I was without hope
with no thoughts of a Savior.
Now I have eternal life
because of your loving favor.

I will treasure our time together
each new day when I arise.
Look forward to the day
I will have my heavenly prize.

To Be Loved By A Child

Oh, the hugs
the squeels of delight
the tender embrace
the kiss goodnight.

The love of a precious child
is greater than any treasure.
It's so fantastic
It's impossible to measure.

My heart does little flip-flops
when a child reaches for me.
God, thank you for this child
that sits upon my knee.
