Grateful for grace

Me in
The embodiment
Of beautiful benevolence
I tearfully approach
The throne
Of reverence
Is available
For repentant sinners
And grateful saints

One constant
May I face it
Not fear
Think big
I fail
It is done
With grand smile
A pleasure
To challenge
What happens
With an ounce
Of hope
And a dusting
Of unabashed faith

Feel the pain
Embrace the strain
The body
With the knowledge
That God
Is in the back pocket
Waiting to be unearthed
Dug out
From obscurity
Get up
Give thanks


What did you last make
What did you last send
What did you last give away

the web

The preoccupation with why
A dangerous hole
A slippery slope
The carrot I dangle
Wondering why
The answer I must seek
Knowing the agony
I will reap
Seeking certainty
Only yields
The opposite effect
Knowing the consequence
Breeds insanity

Thank you

Thank you all for who you are. I appreciate you. Sometimes I don't say thank you for all my blessings. THANK YOU LORD. THANK YOU FRIENDS.
Name one thing that you want to say THANK YOU for?

Tired of waiting
When it'll be my turn
To experience
The love
I've been seeking
They say
You must try
Because God won't do it all
Ever wonder
If only
They saw
The time spent
The tears shed


What you read last?
Last thing you gave?
Last thing you created?

Some things about me

I love listening to sixties music
I dread making the bed
I'm loving buttered popcorn
I have books I've yet to read
My dog is too cute
