The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

SHINE LIKE THE SON

SHINE

sunrise

As the sun rose

Its warming rays touched my

Night cooled flesh

With the thrill of a new day!

LIKE A CHILD

November 15, 2016

In The Beginning

Wee one,

as I look into your eyes

I hunger to see the world through them

as I once did!

I can almost feel

the long forgotten magic!

You NEVER Leave Me – or Give Up On Me

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.

Yet,

This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear-frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.

I SHALL DANCE FOREVER WITH YOU

September 20, 2016

 

Your sweet whispers heal my heart and soul

And turn the tempter’s shouts to silence.

My leaden feet now dance with pure joy,

For all my burdens are yoked

Together with you!

In our quiet place

IN LOVE WITH A WHAT?

September 13, 2016

 

COME

I am generally quiet and sensitive, I am told.  But, you should know that I am also in love with a radical.  He came to break their rules . . . to change the world, this boy of an unmarried peasant girl, and He did! He also came to take my punishment, to set me free, to freely die so that I could live eternally with Him!
