It is the last day of August and September is upon us! I have been on a blog break and am happy to be back. Although I did share a few times during my break, most of what I have written has not been shared. I look forward to seeing you in the days ahead for whatever God has in store. In the meantime, please join me in praying  a prayer of renewal at 5 Minutes for Faith today… Click HERE to read over THERE!

Well, this weekend marks the official end of my Summer blog break. I am gratefully linking up with the gang over at dVerse Poets Pub.

I’ve been writing a bit of poetry over the break, and  tonight is Open Link Night, so I had to pick one to share.

Some of my favorite writing is not always the most upbeat.  Poetry is a safe place where we can  lament, mourn, and explore the ragged edges of  our own beliefs. Poetry is an open door to the unknown places within.  Well, at least that’s how I see it!

;) SMILES!

I appreciate you taking the time to read these words and look forward to connecting with you in the days ahead… thanks for coming, friends.

I have thought about turning 50 since about the age of 46, when my then nine, about to turn ten, year old daughter came home from school and gleefully proclaimed her latest epiphany. Her teacher had informed her that she was about to hit a milestone. That milestone would become mine as well. What grand news was my daughter excited to share with me on that fateful day? The fact that (as her blessed teacher had told her) she would be a decade old.

The Lack

This morning I woke up, went to my desk and penned this poem. Sometimes I feel that calling myself a writer is a half truth.  Because when words come, I sometimes am faithful to make myself available to the tumbling forth…but then does that make me a writer, or a just a word catcher? I am as one who is led, one who avails to that which flows, not one who desires to control the flow of what comes….I just don’t know. But today I give you what came to me. May it be a blessing.
