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: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Circle

Praise and thanksgiving,
Living for the Lord-
To love Him first,
Above all,
Before all.
The Ideal-
So far from my reality,
But, so close to my heart.
So easy to be lost in in daily living,
Caught up in circumstances-
In trials that challenge
Faith to the edge,
Hope to the core,
Love to the end.
Circles revolve back to themselves
Without realizing their journeys
Until Mercy reveals their source
And brings them back to the Center.
Metanoia's resolve-
Initiated by Grace-
Brings relief from self-centeredness,
And ego's enthronement,
Pointing my heart back to the One
Who lifts me by the Spirit's wings
To Heaven's throne-
There to worship in tears of
Praise and Thanksgiving,
Living for the Lord-
To Love Him first-
Above all,
Before all.
And, so it goes-
Ever deeper,
Ever new.
