The Lord’s House

I dwell in

the house

of the Lord.

I dwell in this

sweet human spaceship,

another house of the Lord.

And I’m blessed

to live in this sweet log cabin,

yet another form of the House of the Lord.

I dwell in this community

With neighbors who plow

my driveway unasked,

postal workers who remember me

over blurred addresses.

I dwell in a community of the Lord.

And Tera rings and sings,

in ascension creating

a lighter house of the Lord

for all of us to dwell upon.

And we spin through the

darkness of space,

the Milky Way

laying a pattern in the dark

of one house of the Lord

for us all to dwell within.

Inspired by Tom Kenyon's singing

of the 23rd Psalm

The Blind Side

We each have

our blind sides

where we don’t see.

Both the sides

where we hold

old destructive beliefs

of money is evil,

we’re born in sin

and sex is bad.

And our blind side

of how truly and deeply

loved we are.

How widely

God has our back.

And how blind

we can be to

own responsibility

of creating our lives.
