NAILS – An Acrostic

March 13, 2019

Never had a tree so touched my heart.

Acorns, bark, leaves to rake.

It was so ordinary, almost invisible.

Lent’s reminder of my Savior’s love – His blood. . . 

Somehow the tree wasn’t just a tree anymore.

ARE YOU A THIEF?

April 3, 2017

Treasure Hunt

We search high and low,

seeing everything

and finding nothing.

Frowning becomes moaning

as we steal the joy from other hearts

and toss it away in disgust.

The challenge will never be met

lest we realize the Truth.

What we seek is already within us!

I can STILL hear His footsteps as He dragged the heavy, rough cross along a seemingly  endless path . . . sweat and blood dripping . . .  knowing what was to come . . .and He did it for me.


PRICE CONSCIOUS

You paid the price,

believing I was worth it.

Thank you!

Surrendered

Nestled close to you

In the shelter of your wings

I finally know

The true meaning of freedom!
