The clouds lingered long.
Will the light never return?
The dampness of my tears,
The ache in my limbs,
The longing for something more . . .
All forgotten in an instant
As my gaze found the sun!

We are healed by what we are . . .
what we were made to be.
The preacher must preach,
the singer must make her music,
the writer must write.
Death is in the denial
but life is in the acceptance . . .

Rose with the Son before sunrise
Focusing on Jesus I don’t trip!
I live in hope of the Light,
Therefore, it is mine.
The illusion of darkness
Is no more!

Do you ever have trouble sleeping? I sometimes do. I never did as a child. If I close my eyes right now, by day, I can still recall the soft murmuring of Mama and Daddy talking in the other room. I didn’t always understand what they were saying, but I felt safe and loved and knew everything would be okay and felt their comforting nearness as I drifted off to sleep. I am not that innocent little girl anymore but whether I am feeling alone or not, my Abba is always near and loving me too! All I need to do is let go, let Him take care of me, and rest knowing He will never abandon me . . . just like my earthly parents never did.
