You have spoken softly to me in my place of anger and pain.
Tender touches that awaken the desolate and dying places in my soul.
My heart so heavy that my limbs follow
surly in this pool of pain I will sink.
I will return to you my lover, my God.
For with You it was better for me.
Being thankful has been my life raft in this time
The moment I forget to praise, the waters come up and over me.
When I forget who YOU are Oh my God, I lose myself and who I am.
Make all things new, in You I hope.
Your heart touches my skin like hot sun after long winter
You have taken the heaviness that almost snuffed me out
I was gasping for air and you have breathed on me
with life giving breath.
My mourning for joy
My ashes for beauty.
I am so far behind and working out of order on all my blog posts. But who's keeping track. We have been living lots of life over here, some very painful and lots very beautiful. Yet still in the mist of all this life these little ones keep growing faster than I can keep up with. Although that can be hard at times for me for sure, I am so enjoying getting to know each of them and who they are. If you think of me, pray for us. I am clinging hard to Jesus and to this beautiful treasure I have been given, this little family that I can call my own. This verse, Psalms 63:1 is my anthem of late.
