God’s Love Is Amazing ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God’s love is amazing,
flaming and blazing
effortlessly impressive
active and aggressive.

God”s love is perfect,
ideal and flawless
impeccably complete
honed and faultless.

God’s love is awesome,
sincere and solemn
rapturously showered
propelled and powered.

God’s love is everlasting,
outreaching and broadcasting
unceasingly unremitting
engaging and committing.

God’s love is exceptional,
fair, just and equable
God’s love to everyone
is readily accessible!


1 John 3:1

Behold, what manner of love the Father
hath bestowed upon us, that we should
be called the sons of God: therefore the
world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Catch the Wind

Peacock Poetry

A few weeks ago I felt so full of freedom and light that it was exhilarating and slightly overwhelming! I tried to enjoy this feeling whilst also being mindful of the need to stay grounded and, during one of my leadership calls, imagined holding on firmly to a kite which was flying freely in the wind. This gave me a sense of controller freedom which seemed to really hit the spot!

Unending Journey

I am a kite that’s grown new wings

I’m holding on to fragile strings

Aflight with energetic urge

That longs from inside out to surge

High in the air my spirit roams

Oh ground inside – eternal home

Allow the freshness still to enter

Whilst I breathe deep into my centre

Root down this wondrous, wandering waif

For self-acceptance keeps me safe

Hold on as transformation swings

I am a kite that’s grown new wings

Diamonds of His Grace ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Do your tears downpour,
when you confess your sin
do they fall like raindrops
as they drip off your chin?

Is your heart remorseful,
of your every evil deed
will you give up your pride
and let the Holy Spirit lead?

Do your tears well up inside,
and come from deep within
do they drip like dewdrops
when you cry out to Him?

Will you come to the Light,
to have your heart reformed
will you call upon His name
so your life can be transformed?

Have you looked into God’s eyes,
and wept from your disgrace
do you know your tears to Him . . .
are the diamonds of His grace?


Psalm 30:5

For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life: weeping may
endure for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God are
a broken spirit:…

an almost kiss

House of Heart

I enjoy most the wind
carrying dandelion parachutes,
dispersing tiny seeds across a meadow.
That same breeze winding
erratic patterns into my hair.
The softness of a new sweater;
it will never feel so soft again.

I like to explore the meaning of
of life over a glass of wine,
all laid back and philosophic
unless it becomes distressing;
then a soft smile to break the tension
and an almost kiss.

Trust Because

Peacock Poetry

The knocks we receive in life can really take their toll and cause us to doubt ourselves and to struggle with trusting others. Yet the more we open and trust, the more we receive and channel life and can feel genuine happiness. Today’s poem is all about finding reasons to trust and trusting on in spite of everything. Because it matters greatly and we owe it to ourselves.

Trust On

Trust, though things are not the same

Trust, when you’ve been cheated

One certainty in life is change

Embrace it undefeated

Trust, though you have been let down

Trust, when all else fails you

When no reasons are left in town

Reach out, it will avail you

Trust though your tears fall like rust

and life has dealt you lemons

Weed out the useless, toxic stuff

You’re not served by these remnants

Trust, though you’ve known hurt and pain
