Chasing Rainbows

September 13, 2014

In the midst of a life filled with steady rain,

every brief glimpse of sun

reawakens me and beckons me onward . . .

Keep Holding On

September 9, 2014

Hope in my pain . . .

It’s like sunshine in the rain.

I can’t see it.

I can’t feel it,

Yet I know its nearness

And that alone propels me.

I move forward

With You.

My body may be broken

but my heart

no longer is


Jesus took all the dysfunctional pieces

and called them His own.

You stood beside me,

Squeezed my hand,

And smiled.

It was enough.

Are YOU The One?

September 2, 2014

Nothing will ever change

Until one single soul

Breaks down the wall of fear

And climbs through

To the other side.

I tremble.

You hold me close.

I sigh.

I rest.

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?
