Lifter of my Head

You have rescued me
From grief and despair,
Creating oases of peace 
Where I shamelessly languished 
Under your protection,
Shielding me from pressure.
I needed time, 
You created it for me,
Lovingly carrying me
Through the empty valley
Once filled by my mother and sister –
You are the lifter of my head.

Psalm 3:3 ESV
“But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.”

Rivers in the Sky

29B1DC99-E698-4583-A03C-1A10FA797C91

Fill us with your spirit,
Enlighten us
To discern your will
For our lives,
Show us what to do
To be true to you.

Shut out distractions,
Focus our minds
On your immense love
Constantly pouring
Over us from on high;
Rivers in the sky.

Teach us to float
In this living stream,
To be weightless
Though weighed down,
To trust in You
As You want us to.

Revelation 22 (NLT)
“… a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God … “

Intricacy

I am wife and mother,
Sister, lover,
Daughter, teacher,
Aunty, dreamer,
Cousin, niece and friend.
All these a different me –
A complex personality.

I am wonderfully
And fearfully made;
My designer, the writer
Of my unique story,
Knit me into being,
Stamping me with his mark:
I am his and he is mine.

I am many names
Yet he knows all.
None can separate us,
He knows me inside out,
Knows the mistakes I will make
Yet takes me as I am –
A woman of intricacy.

Psalm 139:13-14
“For you created my inmost being;
  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Transforming

Feet on earth
Head in heaven –
Life suspended between.
Time transfusion
Between two worlds –
Sustained by force unseen.
Everlasting arms
Holding fast –
Anchor in the storm;
You can let go,
You cannot fall –
Now is the time to transform.
Angel wings
‘most fully grown –
Prepares to fly the nest,
He cannot stay
For very long –
God calls him to rest.

My nephew’s son Thomas has a terminal genetic condition, ALD. He is just 8 years old and is slowly slipping further away from us.

Hope

Two years tomorrow, here’s a special just for you Mam 😘 💕

We miss you more, not less,
As time rolls by
And while you fly
The vastness of heaven,
Weaving iridescent colours
Amongst grey skies,
Our view remains clouded;
Veiled by the very grace
That keeps you safe.
While you weave
Your glory picture,
We pick up the threads
Of life without you,
We’ve learned to cope,
To trust in hope.

Hebrews 11:1

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

Sea of Memories

Because we believe,

We will not die!

We will move seamlessly

From one life to the next

But the love we have lived

Will remain:

We will not cease to be,

We become memories

Where past and present

Intertwine incestuously,

A hidden love,

Residing in the minds

Of those we leave behind.

Love never dies,

It morphs and grows,

Tumbling like a fast-flowing

River creating ripples

In the sea of memories.

Fear of Failure

Build memories,
For nothing is lonelier
Than living life in a vacuum
Of nothingness for fear
That failure will succeed
And success will fail
To deliver the dreams
Of your childhood
Where all possibilities
Still existed.

Treasure the moment
Fading like a fragile flower,
Leaving an impression
Burnt into consciousness,
To be remembered in old age
By a random trigger,
Transporting you back
To the very same moment
You stored long ago.
