A Soft Place to Land {Five Minute Friday}

I wish for a soft place to land
A home in which embrace is common
And despair is driven to the ground
With the stake of hope

I wish for open arms welcoming
The whole of this human essence
Whimsical, musical, ardent, passionate
And sometimes afraid.

A BeautyThe funny thing is that it’s already true.  She is you.  You are she.   You are a woman of worth, value, and indomitable spirit.  Grace and truth shine through you.  Gold dust is what you leave everywhere you go.  Somehow, you make this world lovelier by simply being you.

Five Minute Friday: Broken

 Broken

I can’t say I really even like this word, but it’s the one that sums of life at the present moment. So much is broken and in need of repair: thinking, believing, knowing, trusting, doing – they’re broken, so very fragile.

But there is another broken that speaks of life, of freedom, of grace, and restoration.  It is the broken body of Christ.
