Christ died because He loves me.
He felt the pain and accepted it.
Reflecting Him to others is my joy.
I, thus, love all of you.
So, you may have made poor choices as have I.
This love given cannot be taken away – receive it!

Happy heart was swallowed up in the storm!
Oh, the tears of frustration trying to escape!
Perhaps riding the wave will lead me on to victory?
Even forced smiles can bring an awareness of inner peace . . .

No sin left unforgiven
At the last day
If you but ask.
Let Him fill you with His grace . . .
Eternal life Him.
“Do you love me?” I do.

Sometimes life goes along a familiar path for a while then . . .
My heart pounds as I face a brick wall.
I thought I was clever and strong.
Looking at the wall from this side still . . .
I find myself trusting the Lord, but . . .
New heart, new hope, new crack in the brick wall . . .
God provided a toe hold to climb up and begin anew!

A cold November night,
Perplexed by challenges but
Passionate about you.
Lifting the cup of cider to my lips and
Enjoying its sweetness as my spirit lifts.
