end of 2014

I hoped someday I would style and shape and form
a life I'd only dreamed of
but as it is,
I've only fizzed
and the life I'd dreamed of
was dissed.

But make it known, I've been reborn,
and all my dreams became One;
to know my Lord
and see His face in my daily
existence.

welcome to the draft

I have been called to duty. I have been saved, loved, held, washed clean and given a new heart. Now I stand up and testify. Is this any different than a man who preaches, teaches, pastors, leads?
OH, But I am a woman. Is my testimony flawed? Is there a reason to deny me the joy of sharing my experiences with the Holy Spirit?
Oh, sure, but only to other women, or children. Not in front of men.
Who would believe that this is reasonable?

Suffice It Tomorrow

People like me take the hardest route. Maybe because the payoff just isn't worth it unless someone has given their pound of flesh.
This time, though, I say the pounding has been done and no more.

Give us this day, our daily bread.

Your life... my contentment.

Thank you.

A New Year

You don't live in time, do You?
Ageless One, You prevail. Amen

Your Visit

You came at just the right time, when
in worship, we knew we wanted to see you.

we knew if we pressed in a little more,
you would show up.

we knew because you've never let us down.

and we were hungry, we were thirsty, we were desperate.

And there You were. Spirit of Life. Sweet love's desire.
Holy Fire!

And here you are.
