You all know that I’m an emotional bunny,
Sometimes silent, sometimes funny,
But always in awe of the wisdom I find
Here, every Friday; Love IS so kind.
The years have passed, some quick, some slow,
But of one thing I’m sure that now I know,
The love in this room is amazingly strong.
It is love that guides our way along.
Every week we commit to listen, to pray,
To receive God’s love, new every day.
His love guides us to change and grow,
True love, peace and patience is here I know.
So, my lovely ladies, I thank you so much.
You have shown me God’s love through human touch.
Unconditional, challenging, encouraging too,
Love IS Friday mornings, and for that I thank You!
Written in an hour on St Valentine’s Day following a creativity session.
Just as the tall, silent tree
waits patiently and expectantly,
for the first light of dawn,
in the peace of early morning,
so, must we wait, faithfully,
in focussed silence,
for the presence of the Spirit.
Then the joyfully anticipated moment arrives.
Leaves, then branches, are bathed in golden light,
green, flame-transformed, like Moses’ Burning Bush.
The Spirit touches, subtly,
gently lifting consciousness to a different realm
of ecstasy and power.
We, too, like Moses’ Burning Bush,
are on fire.
The verses that went with this picture were Psalm 27: 13,14. “I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
This piece was all about being free to be me, having courage and confidence.
The two pastel pictures are inspired by the passage in Ezekiel 37: 9-14
“I painted this which I thought was pretty nice, but the 2 hands I realised meant stay away from the inside of me. The very beautiful coverage around the hands meant beautiful masks. I talked to God and ripped the paper up with Him, no more masks! I invited Jesus inside of me, the place I had protected and kept hidden. Thank you Jesus.”
“I learn something new about who God is and how He loves me each time you run a creativity time here. I praise Him for this. Jesus loves me!”
