My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free:

The Mother Mary

she was always there for Me
our bond like no other
My beginnings
shrouded in mystery
deterred her not
in her acceptance of Life
and a mission of humble service
joy was her covering
surrender her heart's desire
love her gift
though My identity was beyond her understanding
and more than she could touch
she bathed My soul with tenderness
and a strength Divine
while her smile fed my days
always lifting Me higher
she guided others to follow Me
as she herself grew to measure
'till sorrow's lance pierced her being
while gazing in disbelief at
My stark end
yet again her submission
responded to My final request
taking all as her very own
to draw them to Myself
her eternal call
