Flowers and nectar

 Draw near to me my child and I will speak to you


Consider the flowers of the field 


Only for a short while are they clothed in glory


Then they cease


Their time in the field is short


Yet whilst they are here do they not supply sweet nectar to the birds and bees


They support many 


And yeild many offspring


You are like the flower that feeds the birds


Because you are found in me you have a nectar sweet as honey 


It feeds the lost, the vulnerable, the lonely , the outcast 


They shall gather around my people 


For they have my  heart 


You shall be like the flower in the field 


Rooted in good soil and glorious


You will feed many 


You will produce much fruit 


You will bear offspring as numerous as the stars


Use your time in the field wisely for it is short


Amen


Mountains and seas

 Even though the mountains crumble and the seas rage


I will praise you my Lord my God


Even though my enemies assail against me


I will honour the name of the Lord


For he is almighty God


If I am poor I will praise you my Lord my God


If I have riches beyond the dreams of avarice I will honour you my Lord my God 


Where can I find true acceptance my Lord my God


It is found in you alone 


All my needs are met in you my Lord


Even though I have nowhere to lay my head 


I will not deny you


I am weary and burdened 


Yet I praise you my Lord my God


The Lord is sovereign and royal 


He alone governs kings


By his hand rulers rise and fall


Let my people rejoice for I am coming on the clouds 


Be attentive to my voice 


Listen and I will teach you the way you should go


Open your heart and I will refresh your spirit


Amen
