ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
You were there when the mountains were carved, when life exploded,
When rivers were formed and when man was created from the dust.
You fill men with courage, honor, conscience, love, peace, endurance, faith,
You danced upon the heads of the apostles as they became filled with you.
You hold the hearts of those who die defending your name,
You lift us when we feel defeated. You energize us when we grow weary.
You inspire us, enlighten, fill us with hope through all trials,
When we wonder where God has gone – when we lose confidence in humanity –
When we have no where else to turn – You are there.
You’re unseen, but we know you are in our midst.
Your voice comes in the stirring of the wind,
Your touch can be felt when that same wind embraces us.
Your breath inspired men of God to write down your plan for our lives.
Each word penned points to our redemption, salvation and forgiveness.
You hear our prayers. When we open our hearts and minds to speak to you, you listen.
God of heaven, three in One – Father, Spirit and the Son,
Live within us every day – give us courage as we pray,
Though our minds don’t comprehend, still you help us understand,
The mystery of your trinity, in faith we learn to trust in thee.
