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 Tragedy

the veneer of a life
without Jesus as the center
eventually delaminates
its delusion
even if it's only when
He is revealed
face to Face at the
Final Juidgment
having accepted deceptions by
disbelieving revelations
etched in beauty
embedded in desire
hidden in sorrow
shadowed in love
obvious when discovered
overwhelming when believed
though when dismissed
unexamined or
resisted out of rebellion is
a debacle for...
the True Purpose of Life is lost while
everything else ultimately
remains a disappointment
squandered in the
maze of earthly appetites
glittering goals
born out of our enemy's
diabolical deceits
through vapid promises of
vanity's obsessions
idols bred from pitiful illusions
so confidently worshiped yet
so mercilessly unfulfilling
even if attained because
it is never enough to fill the
Desire for Divine Love
planted at conception
Love whispers a
song of seduction-
wooing our souls
Passionately inviting us into a
Intimate Relationship by
an extravegant Redemption
born out of Suffering a
Death offering Life to seekers of an
Exodus into the Promised Land of
Ultimate Fulfillment-
Unending Joy-
an undeserved Grace for those
who receive but for
those who reject an
Eternal Tragedy
