Just a Breath Away


Look for me in springtime

As raindrops fill the air

In the splendor of the rainbow

You’ll find my presence there.


You will find me in the fragrance

Of April’s sweet perfume

Drifting through the clover

On a sultry day in June.


An August day will find me

Upon the summer breeze

On the distant sound of the thunder

In the gently swaying trees.


In the golden fields of harvest

Is where I can be found.

As autumn time approaches

And leaves comes tumbling down


In the wintertime when days are short

And chill is in the air

Just look into a moonlit night

You’ll find me lingering there.


When the setting sun has gone away

And shadows fill the night

When the cloak of darkness lifts its veil

I’ll be your morning light.


So when you feel discouraged

Get on your knees and pray

You’ll feel me there beside you

I’m just a breath away.

When Jesus Calls Your Name


When you come to know the Father

And He takes your trembling hand

He will lead you on a journey

To a far off distant land.


When He quietly comes to greet you

In the early morning hue

You will find a world of wonder

As you waltz upon the dew.


When He whispers ever gently

In the noontide of the day

When you feel His blessed presence

It will take your breath away.


When you find a night of darkness

And you stumble to the ground

You will find the light of Jesus

He will never let you down.


When you come to know the Father

Not a thing will be the same

You will know the peace of Jesus

When you hear Him call your name.

My Child Has Been Set Free


Sons hold a special bond

That nothing can replace

Their smiles can chase the blues away

And brighten up a face.


Joys we’ve known, a special day

Shared between us two

Secret talks and peaceful walks

Just to name a few.


Times of reminiscing

The day you learned to crawl

Looking through the photos

I’ve always kept them all.


But one sad day, the phone did ring

It tore my world in two

A voice came on the other end

“I have bad news for you.”


The precious boy, I loved so much

Was quickly leaving me

So many things we might have known

Will never come to be.


Thoughts of him are everywhere

I cannot let him go

But somewhere up in heaven

A star does softly glow.


She sees a Joy unknown to me

His face is full of Light

They walk into the Promised Land

God holds his hand so tight.


Just as the shifting sands of time

Flows gently out to sea

Here today and gone tomorrow

My child has been set free.

I Touched the Hand of Jesus


I touched the hand of Jesus

Things are not the same

I looked into His loving eyes

Heard Him call my name.


I felt the peace of Jesus

In sweetness, I did dwell

Serenity, all around me

Draped just like a veil.


I saw the light of Jesus

It burned upon His face

When storms raged all about me

He sheltered me with grace.


I touched the hand of Jesus

And things are not the same

I looked into His loving eyes

And heard Him call my name.

Whispers from Heaven


They say that life is fleeting

I know that this is true

I left this world so quickly

With no goodbye to you.


I know how much you miss me

Your tears fall ever light

The pillow where you lay your head

Is wet with them at night.


I know your heart is hurting

The words we left, unsaid

I love you’s, left unspoken

Are spinning in your head.


The strength that I have carried

That served to make you whole

Remains to make you stronger

Within your grieving soul.


For you see, while you were weeping

On the day I passed away

At the gravesite near the flowers

Where my loved ones knelt to pray.


An angel came to see me

She took me by the hand

She led me to a kingdom

In a very distant land.


As I look down from heaven

And see you standing there

Your heart so ever burdened

With more grief than it can bear.


I long to bring you comfort

I long to give you peace

I long to hold you closely

Cause all your tears to cease.


The joy I’ve found in heaven

Goes far beyond compare

The love that’s so elusive

Can be found here everywhere.


The light is softly shining

There’s no storm clouds here or rain

There’s no teardrops found in heaven

There’s no suffering, there’s no pain.


You needn’t be so troubled

Stay close to God and pray

That someday we’ll be together

One bright and glorious day.


So my love, you shouldn’t question

My dear you need not cry

I’ve gone to be with Jesus

I really didn’t die.

Where Peace Flows Like a River


Together we will journey

To that land up in the sky

Where the flame does burn eternal

And the soul does never die.


Where the harps are gently playing

As a host of angels sing

Where the road is paved with diamonds

And the golden bells do ring.


Where the path is set before us

Shining brightly as the sun

We will see the face of Jesus

When our final race is run.


Where the peace flows like a river

Winding through the streets of gold

We will dine with priests and prophets

When the key to life, we hold.


Where the flame does burn eternal

In that sacred Promised Land

Where God holds the gift of freedom

In the cleft of His right hand.


Where we'll see the face of loved ones

Long before us, gone away

What a day of sweet rejoicing

When we meet again someday.


Where we'll gather at the river

In our home up in the sky

Where the peace flows like a fountain

And the soul does never die.
