FREEDOM IS AN ILLUSION

June 24, 2017

Freedom is an illusion!

It is only in surrendering

our heart, our soul, and all that we are

to the Lord that we ever know

what it truly is to be free!

MORE THAN ENOUGH

May 27, 2017

I pray and I pray

“Lord, give me strength!”

All He did

was infuse me

with His love.

Thank you!

And Jesus Said . . .

May 26, 2017

LOVE IS GREATER

They pointed and shook their heads.

“Not a grain of common sense,” they said.

Still she moved ahead.

“What is she thinking?”

She followed the path.

They called her names,

but it did not sway her.

Throwing things at her did nothing

to change her mind.

EXHAUSTION,

heat,

hunger,

threats. . .

loss of friends,

still she answered the same way.

“Follow me!” He’d invited.

Eagerly, she did.

Finding Love

May 11, 2017

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.

In His Image

May 10, 2017

In the quiet

I felt your arms around me.

I smiled.

I sighed.

I knew your breath,

So close to me,

Was filling my lungs

And giving me strength

To grow . . . to go on.

I was in you.

You were in me.

DEFINING LOVE

May 8, 2017

They gave Him bitter wine to drink

and He took it

so that we might have

that which was sweet.
