Heart Burn

Heart Burn

Were not our hearts burning? Yes, when He spoke with us on the road to Emmaus. Reclining at the table, Jesus broke bread with us! He opened up the Scripture to us! But we were slow to believe Wanting proof, some went to the tomb and found it empty. The prophets had spoken these things! [...]

The River

The River

She trusted and lived by faith Setting out one blue-sky day  Mesmerized by tide pools  Such wonders she saw and gleefully proclaimed. Like a river to the ocean  She was gently drawn down lovely streams  Following the current  Of all she loved and passionately believed. Some days were grey  Her strength grew weak  But still [...]

Honesty and Waves

Honesty and Waves

I thought I deleted this first poem. Why? I believed it wasn't good enough. More so because it's so honest. Too honest. Then I was praying one morning, and I used the words "sinking like a stone." Immediately this poem came to my mind. I regretted deleting it, but then I remembered it was probably [...]
