HOLD TO PROMISE

Promise is a wonderful treasure,
Precious and delicately formed.
She’s to be valued beyond measure;
Protected from theft and harm.

 

Plenty would seek to steal your blessing,
As innocent as they might seem.
So brazenly without redressing;
Unashamed of killing a dream.

 

Don’t let them come near your heart and soul
With their propoganda and lies.
It’s promise that helps to keep us whole;
To guard her is prudent and wise.

 

If you clothe Promise and Dreams in light
Of truth, reality and grace;
If you hold to what you know is right,
These treasures will come take their place.

 

Hold Promise tightly, embrace her;
Then listen to Dream’s hopeful word.
Pursue your heart’s longing without fear;
Rejoice when they begin to stir.

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.
