You created us as unique creatures with a purpose.  Sadly, instead of giving yoou glory for this and learning from one another, we listen to the evil one and behave wickedly!  Help us to reflect Your love and behave as one mutually supportive body in you as you intended and please forgive us for our failings, In Jesus’ holy name.  Amen

I fell to my knees

In the darkened space

With no sound but my own breath

But still

My soul heard your voice

And by the light of a single candle

I found The Way

For a day

I can be a princess

with my mask,

low lights at night,

a bit of plastic and polyester. . .

I will fool everyone!

Ah, but am I merely

ephemeral or foolish as well?

The only one who matters

sees right through my disguise and

knew I was His princess all along!

Beautiful! TO QUOTE Jordy “your inheritance,a dance with grace”

a dance with grace,

Jordy’s Streamings

This was inspired by Sheryl’s Daily Word Prompt. Todays word is Masquerade.

It was also inspired by Martha Shaw’s post, The Lost. I reblogged it and encourage a visit to the post and her love full blog.

To participate or view other posts on the Daily Word here is the link: https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2018/10/27/your-daily-word-prompt-masquerade-October-27-2018/



a kind of double entendre,

anonymity’s humor,

phantoms that project

hidden desires,

masquerading intention,

playing with fire

the costumes you wear,

are they your own?

who are you without the mask?

a masked other?

would you dare to look behind the face,

layer by layer,

and peel off the mask?

expression is hallow,

your inheritance,

a dance with grace,

uncovered, manifest

How sad it is

that so many

spend their entire lives masquerading 

as someone else

only to leave this world sadly missing

the special one they were created to be . . .

All life is poetry!

If we let it,

Sad becomes glad

And glad releases

Heaven’s tears of endless joy!

When We Call

5 Minute Friday – Seasons

October 26, 2018

Here’s a cannotmiss post! Fun, inspiring, thought provoking, and 5 minutes!

Embracing God's Grace

There’s a writing exercise that I used to participate in on Fridays. It was called 5 Minute Fridays – you take 5 minutes out of your Friday to write on a certain topic and don’t waste too much time worrying about editing or how you sound. I feel led to share some brief thoughts on seasons…so here goes nothing.

My favorite time of the year is Fall. The passing of old things brings color into our world for a season and then the earth groans its way through Winter until Spring comes, making all things new again. Interestingly enough, that’s the spiritual cycle of personal growth as well. The Lord seems to prune off the old branches and old leaves and as we watch them die their beautiful deaths, there is a glimpse of color and a new lens through which to see life through. And then the growing pains…

Some see things as they are and ask why

— I dream things that never were and say why not.
