A morning poetic offering as it came this morning. May God be able to speak into the hard places of our hearts that our wills be conformed to His.

Amen.

Living Water

freely-7139

 

Hello! I know I am almost a week late in this post- which was supposed to go up Saturday- I apologize and ask for MORE grace and thank you for it! But, today I offer you a poem. Not just any poem, but a story I have rewritten so many times now, I am surprised I can still breathe new life into it…ah, but then again, why SHOULD that surprise me? The Author of this story ultimately IS Spirit...and able to breathe new life to old things, even bring dead things to life! It is but a small miracle, but a miracle no less that this story continues to be told ANEW- many years after it became my own.

I have taken John Chapter 4 and from an original devotional piece I wrote, which has been told and shared in different ways over the years (by me) transformed it into a poem. Since it’s National Poetry Month – HOORAY! – and I have wanted to change it into poem form for awhile, well it’s perfect timing – even though 5 days late for our journey!

 

Also I would love to know how you are doing with Journaling with John – I will be back Saturday but let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoy this poem as we Revisit the Samaritan Woman…

If you have any thoughts, suggestions on the form or content, or feedback I am open to it!

Grace Upon Grace (2019)

“No one has the time to listen, let alone love.

Is God now pro-exhaustion?

Doesn’t He lead people beside the still waters anymore?

-Richard A. Swenson

 

I am sharing a poem I wrote in 2015 during Lent as we conclude our first week of Journaling through the Book of John. I grabbed the quotes above from my journal archives, as I re-read a few of my entries in a 5-Year Journal of Lent and Advent I kept between 2005-2010.

Finding Your Footing for the Journey

 

 

We are in Week 1 of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond and I didn’t want to leave you high and dry until Saturday. Today is Ash Wednesday and the official start to Lent.

I’d like to share a few tips for this journey for those who may be unsure of their footing, a poem I wrote back in 2013, and an incredible resource for Lent which combines all the beautiful creative things I love- art, poetry and music which you may also greatly appreciate!

Are you ready?

Love Query

Well, today is Valentine’s Day and yesterday morning I wrote the poem I am  sharing today. Words have been coming less often lately, but I am grateful when God inspires words from within. One of the songs going through my mind this week has been “Good, Good Father”. We sang it for worship at church Sunday. You know, it’s a funny thing about how God weaves together our faith lives in time…how important it is for us to gather our imperfect selves together and sing, pray and hope in the One who is Love. How He holds us together through the joys and sorrows we will know in our brief lives…and how he counts our tears as precious…He never turns away.  No matter how many injustices we suffer, may we remember He’s a Good Good Father ….always.

 

I pray this poem is a blessing to you today!
