I SEE THE LIGHT!

February 9, 2019

Some say “oh,the light is so dim!”

Others, though,say “Ah!  Look at the Light!”

The darkness could not overcome it!

It Is Well!

November 17, 2018

My heartbeat quickened when I heard your voice

Beckoning me to come and see,

And eagerly I stepped out into the night.

The cool air refreshed me

And though I walked hesitantly at first,

I soon hurried on in hopeful anticipation.

We were making progress,

You said.

I, my human sight far weaker

Than your vision for me,

Saw only that home and familiarity

Were no longer in view

And realized the night air had grown cold.

I held my breath,

Saw the darkness and wondered at the hour.

I lost sight of you,

And felt frozen in place

Without a plan,

With legs suddenly as marble,

Stiff and immobile

I wondered what to do,

My eyes tightly shut.

I cried out

And heard your voice,

As though you were standing

Right in front of me

“I’m here” you said, reassuring me.

I opened my eyes and saw you

Standing so close

Your presence warmed me

In body and in soul.

You reached out,

I placed my hand in yours.

“Look!” you said

And I saw more stars than I could count

Studding the night sky.

“I placed each one of them there for you”

You told me.

At that moment, I knew your love

As I had never known it before

And hope swelled within me

Until happy tears fell

And we walked on together.

“It is well” you assured me,

But I already knew.

REFLECTED GLORY

October 4, 2018

Lord,

your great love

your grace,

your favor

sweeps the clouds away

and opens my eyes anew

to the brilliance of Your light . . .

more glistening even than the sun

shining down on me

in unmeasurable abundance

from the endless sky!!

Let me be your servant

that others

may feel drawn to you

and know

your magnificance!

“Knock-knock” “Who’s there?”

September 18, 2018

On Healthy Living

 

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 . . .

The Truth – My Legacy

August 2, 2018

NAME IT – CLAIM IT – PROCLAIM IT

My Birthright

I live in hope of the Light,

It is, therefore, my own.

The illusion of darkness

Is gone from my sight

and my heart belongs to Him!
