And you adopted me.
An undeserving child
You set forever free.
Connected to the world
I have truly been
For the world abandoned me
A new journey to begin
Talking with the trees
Conversing with the sky
Dancing with the stars
I discovered who am I.
Talking with the animals
Every blade of grass
Early on I learned
That this shall come to pass.
In a world of lies
Loving one and all
Your cobalt eagle flies.
Flies distant to new places
Not seen by those on earth
Where one day I shall nest
and claim my spiritual birth.
I wish, first of all, to wish you all a joyous holiday season. This is a special time of year for love and reflection.
How very complex our lives seem at times, how heavy our burdens become. I have accepted the fact, however, that I have chosen to make it so unconsciously by not asking God to help me sort things out. How many times have I searched for an everlasting, unconditional love?
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalms 118
How could I ever expect to find a man who could love me as God does? How could I be so self-righteous to believe I could love that way? I wasted years pining and crying for something that is impossible for a human being to provide! And what have I done to deserve such a love?
How afraid have I been of failure, of not making top dollar, of not owning a home like my friends--how long have I been blinded by things of importance in the world's eyes--and where has it gotten me? It got me stessed out and now I have Chronic Heart Disease at 55 years--was it worth it? Now I cannot earn top dollar and I don't own a house--but I have learned a valuable lesson--take time to love all and enjoy life--the world and all our possessions shall pass.
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. Psalms 125
How very often did I get angry because I wasn't where I wanted to be? How often did I say things I shouldn't have to the one who loves me most?
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18
A wise man's heart guides his mouth; and his lips promote instruction. Proverbs 16:23
Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3
I often joke with friends, beloved family, that we were not provided with a manual instructing us how to live our lives, but we were--the Bible. Give yourselves a wonderful gift this holiday season and take time to read this priceless book. Renew your relationship with Christ Jesus for it is the most important relationship we shall ever have!
The world and the things it has to offer is an illusion of stability and happiness that shall come to pass. God's love for us will never end. Make that leap of faith if you haven't already.
Do not fear, little flock for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Bountiful blessings and love,
