As I shared in yesterday's blog, I have been struggling lately with where I am both emotionally, spiritually and as a writer. Last night, our priest reminded us that we are only truly happy when we are following God's will and plan for us. I know this, but I have not pondered it for awhile. That changed today.
I have decided to prepare for Lent. I have begun a novena that will end as Ash Wednesday begins. I have acknowledged to myself that I need more time in Adoration and more quiet time this Lent. I have also decided to return to my first loves of writing...journaling and poetry.
So, as I struggle to find my new normal (can you tell I'm menopausal) I wrote my first poem in a long time. Ready or not...
Rendering...my heart open and exposed.
Stealing...my peace leaving me raw.
Needing...His heart, sacred, it beckons.
Belonging...to His perfect plan.
Leaping...discovering destinations He sends.
Scarring...metamorphis of my heart.
