A reminder

I am not just for you! says the Lord
If you are not clearing the path for others
you are not heading where you think

Compassion withers when it is retained

Compassion withers when it is retained
and flowers when passed along –
and for those who do not deserve it,
compassion bursts into a million blooms

Do not discard dreams that die

Do not discard dreams that die
return them to earth
for they keep the soil fertile for new seeds

All walls

All walls down
I become a prayer

All walls up
I return to flesh

I want you to claim me, says the Lord

I want you to claim me, says the Lord –
no more whispering or mutedness,
for healing comes in truth

The resting prayer

You bring me back to my joy, O Lord
resting in you, letting my mind wander while being held in your arms
letting you finger the curls of my hair
letting you tenderly kiss the nape of my neck,
your warmth generating warmth generating warmth,
resting in you
and you resting in me

Jumping naked

If the lesson is from me, says the Lord,
jump into it naked
hold nothing back
