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 Look

unrestrained tears
never stopping
never comforting
only grieving
wrapped my heart
after my
boastful professions
judged me
not once but thrice
in sterile denials
of Love's Identity
but Mercy's look
exposed my soul and
bore my guilt
when deeds' memories
awoke by mourning's cry
unaccepted forgiveness
finds no resistance
which loosens the bonds
and gently reveals
the start

-Why did just a look affect Peter so much?
-Have you ever had an experience like Peter's? Describe it.
-How does Peter's experience portray the true meaning of repentance?
-What does "repent and believe the Gospel" mean?
-What does "reveals the "start" mean?
