Unmerited Gift

Image

In the mirror, a bleary face
Once stared out in disgust.
Alcohol had taken me…
A “want” became a “must.”

I hated what I had become,
And didn’t want to see
All the bad things I had done,
What I had come to be.

By God’s good and gentle grace 
I found a better me,
Behind that bloated, bleary face,
My eyes have cleared and see.

What a gift He’s given me,
This new and better life…
And now a chance to better be
A sister, mother, wife.

Purrrrr

Image

Why is a cat’s purr
So much like a drug,
Tranquilizing,
Mesmerising?
I watch her face,
Eyes closed with joy
That she should be
So loved,
A joy that manifests
In a gentle rumble.
Is this truly
The sound
Of serenity?

Daily Worship

Image

The same sun hangs in the sky
That hung there yesterday,
The same prayer was on my lips
When I knelt down to pray.

I know that God is with me
Every single day,
Yet feel that He drew nearer
When I woke up today.

Maybe it’s not His day of rest
That draws Him near to me,
But the day when I approach
To sit at Father’s knee.

Sunday is another day,
I should view all days the same
And approach my God all mornings.
Sunday’s but a name.
