No Umbrella For Me

Shield me not from the rain.

As the trees, plants and flowers thirst for rain,

I too, thirst.

My Strength Is Made Perfect In Weakness

He gives me the hope I need,

when it seems so out of reach.

He gives me reassurance,

when doubt screams in my head.

He fills this emptiness,

when void echoes loneliness.

Open Invitation

My Lord,

I extend my arms gratefully, saying

"I welcome you in today,


and always.

Shower me with your presence.


A butterfly-free flying,

Beautiful, full of radiance,

Admired by many.

A sign of breaking away

From old self and celebrating life.
