You knew… 

 

You knew,
this wasn’t what
I really wanted.

You knew,
I yearned to leave
but didn’t know how.

You knew,
I would have stayed
mostly out of loyalty.

You knew,
I always tried to see the good in all circumstances.

You knew,
I swallowed more than I deserved
because I abhor confrontation.

You knew,
my frustration and tiredness
of the entire situation.

You knew,
my inner desires,
my passions and my goals.

You knew,
I’m not much for fanfare
but gave me a dramatic exit nonetheless.

You knew,
I wouldn’t understand
your methods in the moment.

You knew,
in the end this path
would make me stronger.

You knew,
it all and so you set me free.
Thank you Lord. Amen.

The Silent Worrior

 

She sat
for what seemed like forever,
flat on the floor
with her back against the wall.

Her hands ached,
her shoulders were tight,
her legs were numb,
her feet were swollen.

Her spirit willed her to move
but her body resisted.
Life for her has never been easy
and this was no different.

Her journey ahead
triggered a sense of panic.
Her chest tightened,
her stomach was in knots.

She was so tired
of the endless struggle.
She wanted it all to stop
but quitting was not an option.

The tears filled her eyes
as she prayed for strength.
She has learned very well
to push through the pain.

One day things will get better…
Her faith is strong!
She believes there’s a reason
for everything, even this!

While seeking happiness I found joy! 

 

The beauty of your light
shines through
the windows of my heart.

The richness of your love
fills the depleted reservoirs
of my thirsty soul.

I seek your presence
in search of peace,
happiness and wisdom.

I feel your grace
washing over me,
forgiving my errant ways.

I praise your name
in joyful gratitude
for your abundant blessings,
and your everlasting love.

I cherish each new day
for it is one more chance
to share your love.

You understand my desires
and give me more
that I ever expected.

You anticipate my every need
and meet me with open arms
blessing me with your abundance.

Lord, you are wonderful!
And so I thank now
in Jesus name, Amen.

Random Act of kindness: November 29 2017

 

He
was young.

He
needed gas.

He requested
$14 worth.

His card
was declined.

He suggested we try
$10 instead.

The transaction
was rejected.

He apologized for
wasting my time and left.

Silently he sat in his car
pondering what to do next.

My heart sank…

The next gentleman in line
paid for his snacks
and gave and extra $10.

“That’s for the guy
who was in line before me,”
he said.
“I remember what it felt like
to be young and broke.
Go catch him before he leaves!”

I ran as fast as I could.
I was happy to help
make him feel better.
I was elated to witness
such a wonderful act of kindness.

Making Sweet Memories

 

No alarms
to rush us out of bed.

No responsibilities
that can’t wait til tomorrow instead.

Just another rainy Saturday
to lounge about in pjs.

Just another lazy day
for making wonderful memories.

Intrigued by you

 

A screenshot of you
is thumb-tacked
to the walls
of my soul,
frameless,
for I know not yet
of the permanence
of your presence.

A wall between us

 

I’m not a mindless, shallow person
incapable of comprehending
that life doesn’t always
deal us the cards we want.

We all have our personal struggles.
We all have our crosses to bear.
We all have skeletons in our closets.
We all have stories to tell.
We all have issues
we’re self-conscious about.
We are all human.

The walls you hide behind
to shield your soul
also keep me away.
I have no desire
to force my way
into your life.
I rather be invited.

Don’t shut me out.
Share your heart
and I will guard your secrets
along with my own.
Just do the same for me.
