Pretend Not To

Today and Always

Today was our day,

Your gentle warmth woke me up

As your light caressed my face

I opened my eyes and poured out my heart to you

Tears flowed in place of words, but you understood

Today, I was reminded of your love

You showed yourself in nature

In how carefully you crafted it

In how you neatly placed each detail

Today, your love blanketed me

You wrapped me in your arms

Gave me the security I needed

Wiped away my fears

Reassured my doubting mind

Today, you colored my grays

Your love painted over my sorrows

You showed me real love

Not in the shape of a heart

But in the form of a cross

Today, you crowned me with grace

A crown you purchased with your life

Because you too have been crowned

But crowned with thorns

You took my place, that I may be forgiven

Today, I remembered your sacrifice

You gave yourself for me

I give myself to you

I love you because you loved me first

Today, I use my words to profess my love for you

Although you have been the Word from the beginning

You are my life, my love, my beginning, my end

Even though you’ve been with me since before then

Today, I praise you with my life

Today, I fall in love again

Today, is our day

Today and always you are good

Today and always you are God

A Cub’s Courage

A Cub's Courage As a child, I recall watching a cartoon in which a bear cub stands up to a hunter in an effort to defend himself. When he roars, rather than the usual baby roar, a terrifying sound scares away the hunter. When the camera zooms out, we see his mother behind him. Life is like this for those of us who trust in the Lord, we are never alone. Be encouraged and face the world head on….you are NOT alone.

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. (John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Hidden Heart

In Love

In LoveFalling in love is such a wonderful feeling. For some reason, when you’re in love the world seems more beautiful and the things that bothered you are no longer a nuisance. Unfortunately that feeling doesn’t always last long, but when you have an eternal love you fall in love everyday. Everything changes, life is more beautiful, and our troubles somehow seem a bit more bearable. Falling in love with Christ is just that, there is no other feeling!

But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do. ‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭73:28‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Write Me

Give me a beautiful challenge

Riddle me your words

Use them to paint a picture

Share your melody like a songbird

Give me your verses

Let me feel, taste, and see your thoughts

Write me a few lines

Share the haiku of your heart

Give me your soul’s sonnet

Intrigue me with what you compose

Pour yourself out in each stanza

Write me into your heart, never let me go

Hurt Heart

 People will only hurt you as much as you allow; don’t let them.
