Free At Last

God saw my fragile soul
wondering from place to place
and repeatedly called out to me

unable to settle and find rest
unable to trust that
i knew what was best

i willing gave love to
anyone who wanted it
only to discover that i never
truly possessed it

believing that i held no worth
i allowed my virtue
to be passed around

unaware that my Father
was watching over me and
trying to take hold of me

i had no idea that His love
would be such a passionate
and powerful force that
could eventually heal me

my fragile soul was so desperately
searching for that one person
or thing that would validate me

anything to stop the bleeding
from my damaged heart and cure
my hidden feelings of inadequacy

His Son came to save me
and presented me with a
sweet song of grace and mercy

now my fragile soul has
landed on His eagle wings of
forgiveness and eternity

my spirit is free at last

It's nice to know you have so much to look forward to.

It's a big world out there and you have children to share this world with.
You have a career, you write poems and design books, you are active in your community, you have a great place by the beach More importantly you have your health. You have a lot of things people would envy you for and want you for. It is important to keep your head and enjoy what God had endowed you with.

My Lady,

you made me cry...
that was so beautiful...

i love my kids and so grateful that they not only love me back, but they really like me :-)

i spent yesterday w/two senior friends and i was feeling kind of sad. life is so busy and we don't look after our seniors like we should...especially in this heat.

i told my kids that if i ever have to go into a nursing home, pls bring me some brownies and read my poetry books to me again and again :-)

we shall see...Lol

LOVE you SWEET "Friend!"

ps...i've been complaining inwardly about a little weight gain and you just lifted me out of my self pity...YOU'RE So right; I have my health.

If you have family it is best to share your life with them.
I don't recommend nursing homes to anyone.
Parents should die at home.My Mom did and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
I told my son I am staying with so he already knows. Hopefully it will never get that far.

This, your personal testimony, would make for a wonderful hymn. Seriously. The poetic truth of it would lend itself well to that medium.


What the reader receives from this piece is: there is no heart so full of woe, or a spirit so dark or absent of hope, nor a grave situation so dim that the Love of God can not bring New Light into it.

Beautiful testimony to your Song of Life....
God is Good....

My Lady, I'm with you. The love and tenderness is not the same and I have seen many being taken advantage of.

I'm with you again....if I had to, I'd stay with my son, but don't tell my daughter. Lol

Thank you Lin!

I have a friend at church who is going to look at my spiritual poetry and see if she can turn one into a praise song.

Right now, she's working on her family tree I am being very patient and am super excited that she is willing to to this for me.

God is awesome! Way more than I deserve!!!!

Wynn, testimony indeed. I cry when I often think about the life that I used to live. "Tears of both remembrance and redemption!"

I truly thank Him knowing now that my private pain and shame was for His public Glory!

Looking back, I wouldn't change a single thing.

My life is proof that He is indeed a patient and forgiving God!
