THE BOX

I used to live in a box,
Roomy enough but quaint.
All was familiar there,
Even the draperies and paint.

I thought I was free in my box;
Able to come and go;
life seemed so easy there;
Yet how I  struggled so.

Then one day,
I found a way
To leave my box behind!
Discovery sweet;
Delightful treat;
It really blew my mind!

Now I don’t live in a box;
The world is mine to see
I find new thoughts and ways;
I treasure discovery.

There will be no box for me;
I love to learn and grow.
I like new creations;
I value my freedom so.

If you think outside the box,
You are lavishly blessed;
You’re rich beyond compare.
You truly can be your best.

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.
