Despair

B4DC2AFF-6854-4039-B660-E5B0AFDFC8AB

Creator God,
You who made all that ever was, or will be,
How can you can hear my plea –
In the vastness of the universe
With so many unfortunate souls
Also praying to the God of hope,
Just how do you cope?

I am so small, so insignificant,
How can you separate my voice
Dry my tears, supress my fears
And do just the same for everyone else?

You have always been there for me
Now I need you more than ever,
Will you still hear me in my distress?
Is it my faithlessness
That reigns ill fate in my family?

Take it from us Lord,
Tell me what I must do
To regain trust with you.
Miracle making God,
Hear my prayer and
Alleviate this despair.

Psalm 18:6 “In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.”

Insomniac Central

Sleepless nights:
Unanswered questions
Toss round and round
My tumble-dryer head,
I should be asleep but instead,
Thoughts never quite dry,
Hour after hour –
Another wide-awake sleep
In the middle of the week.

Darkness hides
From my brightly lit mind,
Replaying conversations I never had,
Tomorrow I’ll be digging deep
Suffering from lack of sleep,
Running on overdrive,
Exhausted beyond measure
Insomniac central,
Turmoil unquenchable.

Turn this damn dryer off –
I’ve had enough!

Kit and Me

Kitty and me
We share fleas,
She snores as she sleeps
And she wriggles round a lot,
She howls if she’s left
And she pees in my veggie plot!
She hides in my shopping bag
To fool nasty coffee staff
And bites naughty children
Just to give her Dad a laugh!
She’s loving and loyal
And eager to please us all,
Eats special chihuahua food,
Drinks no alcohol,
Takes me out walking
But doesn’t like the rain a woof
Needs a Mac and wellies
To make her waterproof!
I love this cwtchy
Long-haired little girlie
Fleas are irrelevant
‘Cos she loves unconditionally!!

Imperfect Being

IMG_0775
Life would be easier if I were
The perfect wife and mother
With no other
Aim but to serve,
But, I am an imperfect being
In an imperfect world
Where my anger unfurls
Its flag
To fly in your face,
With no thought of remorse,
Until it’s too late.

I am perfectly capable
Of screwing up,
Of a fast gallop
Down the wrong track;
But, as imperfect as I am,
I’m not totally lost,
Though the cost
To my worth
When I stop to reflect,
Often wrecks my peace
Of mind.

Yet God is working in me!
I’m an incomplete project,
Subject to checks
By a God who protects
My imperfect soul
As it strives for protection
Admist self-destruction.
God’s infinite patience
For one such as me
Reflects His perfect
Divinity.

Isaiah 43:2 – The Message (MSG)
“But I, yes I, am the one
 who takes care of your sins – that’s what I do.
 I don’t keep a list of your sins.”

Swimming in Sanary-sur-Mer

IMG_0765

A thousand million shards of sunlight
Glinting off the sea,
Constantly breaking pattern
As I swim languorously,
Dodging paddle boards,
Family-propelled pedalos,
Stray limbs, blind-snorkelers
And giant inflatable flamingoes.
I swim slowly, far beyond the mole,
The warm, calm water enticing me,
Storing up sun-soaked memories,
Swimming further out than I ought to be
But finally, I’m alone, I’m free,
Eye level with this magical sea,
I blend in, become part of the scene,
Doing nothing, floating lazily,
A thousand millions shards of sunlight
And me.

God I love Sanary.
