Speak to us of justice.
Speak to us of truth.
Speak to us of healing.
For so long
we have labored
under rules and regulations
not fit for human consumption
but didn’t see what other choice we had.
Church and government hold us
to policy and practice wholly not
fit for the matters of the heart.
It is no wonder, we lose hope.
Lose faith. And turn to vice for comfort.
Lady of Love
show us how we,
though burdened by beasts
we do not even know the names of
may continue to love regardless.
Our little flames sometimes
grow tired and we think…
oh what good does my little light do
in the valley of darkness?
But then we remember that together
our lights will light the way
and that no matter how bleak
it sometimes seems, and sometimes is…
We have to reach for love anyway.
We have to call out to God anyway.
We have to reach out our hands to one another anyway.
We have to pray…anyway.

Dear Ones, I am at the kitchen table drinking a late afternoon cup of coffee and pondering how to love, anyway. When I consider not loving because things are so tough, then I think, well that won’t do will it? How can it be that statistics of violence and pornography and child prostitution are getting worse? It is hard to wrap ones mind and heart around and so I just continue to pray and pray.
If you haven’t had a chance to come by and see my 16 Year Retrospective, come on over!
Blessings to you today…bright cheer to you and your home…pray anyway!
