There Is Hope

There Is Hope (a short poem) – by K.D.

There is hope
When I have none
There is hope
When I’ve come undone
There is hope
In the warmth of the sun
There is hope today

When the sun’s rays bathe me
When The Son’s rays bathe me

A Gift

Hi y’all! First I want to thank all of you for the LOVE and support you’ve shown me over the past several days. I’m truly honored that so many of you responded with words of affirmation and encouragement to my most recent post.  I feel so blessed.  Today, I want to stay in the vein of thankfulness by talking about a Gift.  Let me explain.

I believe it is a Gift to be able to be a part of this blogging community. But also, it is a Gift to be able to express ourselves through writing. To be able to put words together in such a way as to convey thoughts, information or ideas to share with others is special. Each of us in our own way, has taken the leap of faith to begin sharing ourselves with the world through our words…through blogging.  Do you remember when the idea to blog became a reality for you? That day you decided to “go for it” and “see what happens”…. You entered the blogosphere with your very first post.  You may have wondered if you’d even get a response or reaction.  You wondered if anyone would care to read what you had to say.  Or maybe you are using blogging as a way to work through a difficult situation. It’s a release for you, somewhat cathartic.  Whatever got you here, I’m sooo glad you came.  I’m so glad to read others’ ideas, recipes, thoughts, encouraging words, stories.  You are amazing, brave, strong, creative…full of faith, hope, love, vigor, and so much more.

May we all see and know and understand what a great Gift we possess in writing.  It is both a privilege and a responsibility.

Toodles ♥

A Poem…A Prayer

Screaming, crying, groaning within
Longing for the greatness
That was deposited within me
Long before I was born
…To manifest itself

Reaching, grasping, stretching
Eager to touch something
That I can connect with
Something that will fuse
With who I am

I long to be
Greatness
I long to be
Shining
I long to be
Full and vibrant and soaring

Yet…how
How do I get there?
I’ve tried ‘this’
I’ve tried ‘that’
When will the dots connect?
When will I have the “a-ha” moment?
When will all things align aright?

God, do you hear my cry?
You filled me with these dreams
You placed something inside of me
That needs to be
Bigger

Something inside of me
That needs to be
Giving
Touching lives beyond myself
Bringing the world hope

Perhaps I cannot see the forest for the trees
Perhaps I’m in the middle of some great plan
That’s forming
And turning
And moving
All around me

I’m integrated into the plan
But because I’m so entrenched in the inner workings
I cannot see the big picture
Yes,
The big picture

You, my Lord, are the Great Artist.
You are forming a masterpiece of my life.
You are molding, firing, glazing
You are painting with little strokes, then big
You are chiseling and sanding

Yes you are making
Me
A Masterpiece

I yield to your hand
I yield to your expertise
I yield to your passion
To your plan
To your vision
Yes, this great longing inside me
Has purpose

I will move with your unction
I will keep trying new things
I will keep reaching out to help others
I will keep creating

And I will trust YOU
To bring to fruition the finished work
And I will gaze in awe
At the Mastery of your hands.

Amen
