Official Writer Portfolio

My love of words and writing started almost from the time I first began to read. Over the years, I’ve gone from reading others peoples words to writing my own. I write Inspirational Christian poetry and am inspired by God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost. I also find inspiration in my beloved husband, family, friends and nature.

A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

December 27, 2021

A Light in the Darkness colors the heart in hues of hope, faith, and love. It is inspirational Christian poetry written from the heart of a Christian who loves God and longs to fill this dark world with the light of his amazing love. The writer focuses on God’s love and fills these pages with worshipful poems and psalms intentionally written to praise and honor our Creator, a Holy and Awesome God. Jesus is at the center of this work, and the writer displays that reality with every poem.

JOY OF THE LORD

2020

Nehemiah 8:10 ~ Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.


A soothing silence surrounds me
Serenity calling through sensations
Of elation that fill me with delight
Insights into the whispers of night
Where shadows cause me to gasp
Away fears who judge me unworthy

Elation caresses my spirit with hope
Whispering soft caresses into my heart
Which discovers the greatest joy within
The pleasure sought beyond material things
Wherever God’s hand has touched down
Healing, helping, hoping for harmonizing

Seeking songs which color the breezes
Warm hues of melancholy and passionate
Promises which drift on the tides of azure
Waters which caress the beaches edges
And call out to the passing natives sweet tunes
Of fireflies creating a flickering paradise in nature

Fresh scents of mystery reveal spirit’s dreams
Of creative gestures that welcome desire’s fires
Within a morning mist or alive in the night shadows
Which breathe music through the gentle air
And bring enchantment to the surface of pools
Drifting with lush, liquid sighs of pure joy

Like a warm embrace, she caresses my soul
Knowing there are hopes that keep faith alive
Warming the skin with sunshine’s insightfulness
Creating poetry and prose along the breaking
Of dawn and within the harmony of rainfall
Comforting the earth with its beautiful silence

The Joy of the Lord is my STRENGTH!!!

HE IS LOVE

January 5, 2022

He is the wonder of my life
He heals my hurt, worry and strife
I long to give Him all of my doubt
Let Him use me and lift me out
From the disgrace I’ve been living in
The darkness that shadows me in sin
The hardness of a heart who knows
This Jesus will leave me smelling like a rose

He is the answer to all of my prayers
Without His love, my hopes would be in tears
He whispers kindness through my world
Mingling His joy with peace that He swirled
Into a mosaic of colors so brilliant and bold
It brought my heart to life and filled the mold
God had created when He made me long ago
Setting my spirit afire so that I am all aglow

He is the breath of grace falling over my soul
Sighing with a song of serenity that will console
Even the night runs away from the sweet light
That reflects from my touch as I continue to fight
For all that is good, all that He blesses, all His love
Tenderness and affection birthed from up above
On wings of sweetest faith, inspiring gentle grace
Which will leave me full of feelings I can’t replace

Hallelujah sweet Jesus, the love of my lifetime
Hallelujah to the heavens where I will climb
As this world leaves me with one purpose, one goal
To glorify the Father, give Him devotion from my soul
Hallelujah sweet Jesus, the One I call my hope
The answer to my prayers, the reason I can cope
The music that feeds my spirit with kindness and love
The feeling that awakens when I look to heaven above
