Walking in Grace

dew4

Through Him
I walk in Grace
upon me doth He bestow
mercy, unmerited love
understanding of my
insufficiencies for
He made me what I am
but with the ability
to grow in understanding
by accepting with gratitude
the grace He shines
upon me each day.

Yes and No

birds18

I am sinking while rising
seeing though blind
a symphony surrounds
me with silence
I am and am not
am I real or
just a fantasy?

The Crib

joy

We see the world
in rose-colored glasses
limited, restricted, narrow
for we are babies
in cribs, diapers wet
crying for mother’s milk.

Growing up is not easy
much courage is needed
so we play at life
never knowing the layers
that we miss
too afraid to be real
honest
to take off our mask
our blinders
to face the world
of mystery.

We die babies in a crib.

No Other Reason

love is

When at last
true love comes to you
chooses you
you know with
grateful understanding
and humility

Only God can love you
for no reason but love
