Heavenward

Heavenward

As dust upon the Wind,
I am drawn upon a breeze of Spirit,
To realms above the world and worldly.

Higher, ever higher,
I implore,
Detach me for the heavenly.

Sweet Sustenance,
Food for my soul,
As You lift me,
You transform and sustain me.

I am of Earth,
But created for You and Your Heaven,
In Eucharist,
I become all gratitude and thanksgiving.

I Believe

I Believe

You are here, with me, within me,
Your indwelling Spirit alive,
For the life of me.

You give Your Holy Life to my soul.
Raising nature above the world
To breathe with Your Spirit.

I am in You, for You.
I am Yours.
May Your Heart ever hold me fast.
