MY TESTIMONY

Soul Kisses From My Savior

You introduced me to my heart

The day that I accepted yours.

I know now that true and lasting  joy

Was never before mine

Until that day I looked into your eyes

And found my very soul

Was looking back at me

In the pure love and grace

I saw reflected there.

You touched my hand

And led me to the place

That I’d been seeking all my life

Without ever knowing what I’d missed.

Suddenly, this secret of our love

Is one that I can no longer keep

To myself

And so I freely share it

Every chance I get.

A most amazing consequence

Is now so clear to me.

For every time I blow a kiss

You blow me two of yours!

Do not be a spectator in life!  

Choose instead to LIVE your life!  

You were wonderfully made,

you are loved,

you are here for a beautiful reason!  

TRUST IN GOD

HE DOES ALL THINGS WELL!

WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE SMILING!

My soul is raining!

Stubborn sun, why must you shine?

Tears refresh the joy.

FAITH IS LIKE A FALLEN LEAF

June 5, 2018

Branch Out!

If a tree were to resist

shedding her colorful autumn leaves,

when would come spring?

When would come summer?

If we resist change

we cannot question why

we do not grow.

Do not choose death – choose life!

Blessed and Refreshed

In the earliest moments of morning

While traffic outside is quiet,

The family sleeps,

The dog is still . . .

My stress disappears . . .

It’s just you and me.

I have all I need

And more!

Ah,

that delicious moment

when you don’t know how it’ll happen

and have no idea how things will play out

as you realize you can do nothing about it

yet

you know who does

and your soul is filled with peace!

YOU RAISE ME UP

May 19, 2018

Finding Love

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.
