IF YOU COULD

If you could go anywhere,
Where would you be?
Do whatever you choose,
And live as you please,

Would you move far away
Or stay where you are;
Choose very differently
Follow a new star?

Or would you be happy
With how you have lived?
Would you be satisfied;
Can you forgive?

Are you accepting
The good with the bad?
Are you embracing
the Joyful and sad?

If you could be anyone,
Would that still be you?
One with integrity;
One who is true?

As I live and grow,
I gladly receive
The one I’m becoming;
The way I believe.

To be someone else
Would just be a lie.
A life of discovery
I live till I die.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
