Hello Spring, Are You There?

I’m not sure of the weather where you are situated at this moment, but rumor has it, Spring is right around the corner. Since this may appear doubtful…depending on where you ARE situated, I thought I’d share some poetic inspiration about the most elusive season…


…But, I am Redeemed (My One Word and RJD Link January 2015)




I usually count my blessings daily and my heart’s desire is to continuously give thanks and praise to God, though I confess I fall short. So despite a year of obstacles, challenges and downright spiritual attack, I found myself hesitant to consider my year in retrospect. I was dragging my feet even though I usually start pondering in Fall, all of the things God has been revealing to me. I’m not sure if it was the accident on October 31st which was the straw that broke the camel’s back, or the fact that Thanksgiving was later than usual, thrusting the Christmas season upon us at breakneck speed. Either way, I found myself dragging my feet to put pen to paper about 2014. There were great blessings and great trials. Great joy, and great pain. I started the year with the word Renewal and soon realized my vision and God’s version were not the same…at all.


The Transforming of Souls and Stones



Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2  (My One Word 2014 Renewal and the verse that guides me)


I’ve written many words in my life. Words I share now are like pebbles from Heaven, bits of hope, to pass out freely. My words have not always been edifying, for words reflect the inner being. Words are the great revealers of the inner life. Or lack thereof. Once they are poured forth they never fail to show who we are, what we believe, and where our allegiance lies. Words can give life and extinguish life. Words are the stuff life is made of from the very beginning:

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7

For me writing has been a journey of transformation. My words written, a portal into my very soul. My soul has been on a journey since before I even realized I would become a word loving, stone gathering, modern day disciple. I took my pen in hand and began to write the journey, mostly in journals, as the path stretched before me. I wrote it down.

Swirls of curls swim atop her head,

she is smooth curves

more than proper for her age

loved generously

yet longs to be

a waif

belonging to no one, nowhere
