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 Rest

                                                                                                                          
silence boasts dawn’s darkness
winter winds searching for a home
empty hearts longing to be filled
desires needing more than finite filling
illusions of meaning fighting for survival
restlessness crying for peace
Love knocking on lonely doors
breaking bread on heaven’s table 
turning into earth's salvation
seeing with closed eyes the One unseen
life receiving the gift of a 
death freely given as
night fades into day while
tears fall in sorrow and joy 
when I encounters Thou
our journey turns from
seeking to finding
treasure's
rest

Reflection/Discussion:
-How do our many desires speak of the eternal?
-How do we find rest?
-How do we deal with our earthly desires after rest?
-How do we bring order into disordered desires?
-How do we grow in our love for the Lord?
