God’s unconditional love

This poem was recently written by a dear friend. She is a woman of deep faith and this is a piece she is very proud of. With her permission, I am sharing it with you.

GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

By the blood of Jesus we’re sanctified,
Cleansed free from sin you’re now justified,
Honour, trust me along life’s stormy way,
My grace is sufficient for you each day,

Praises of adulation we joyfully sing,
We’ll worship our heavenly Saviour and King,
By my stripes you’re healed and made whole,
Let the Holy Spirit minister to your soul,

My peace is truly given to everyone,
Unconditional love comes from God’s beloved son,
We are blessed more than we say,
Start anew each morning, always pray.

Grief and my love

My beautiful Soul Pet, Milo, taught me a powerful lesson in grief last year.

For those of you who have been following Liz’s Everest since then, you would remember an article including a poem. That poem I wrote at the death of my Granddad.
I posted it upon the death of Milo.

Death was a release for both these living beings. I know that, yet still I can’t help but miss them.

As I face my parents aging, I know that I have the power within me to take the lessons I’ve learned from them into my future. And I know this, because Milo taught me.

The theme for this season is Legacy.

May each of you be thoughtful about the legacy you leave behind. And of the legacy that others give you at their own passing.

Watch this space, as other articles will be posted between now and the end of April, dealing with legacy.

It’s a fitting theme, as those of us in the Southern Hemisphere start the wind down into Winter.
