For the Love of The Christ -the Apostle Paul Quotes and Sayings-the Surrender Novena- Confluence and Cosmic Influence-The Psalms-

PSALM 18 
A King’s Thanksgiving for VictoryFor the leader. Of David, the servant of the Lord, who sang to the Lord the words of this song after the Lord had rescued him from the clutches of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.He said: I love you, Lord, my strength, Lord, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, My God, my rock of refuge, my shield, my saving horn, my stronghold!Praised be the Lord, I exclaim! I have been delivered from my enemies. The breakers of death surged round about me; the menacing floods terrified me. The cords of Sheol tightened; the snares of death lay in wait for me.In my distress I called out: Lord! I cried out to my God.

From his temple he heard my voice; my cry to him reached his ears.The earth rocked and shook; the foundations of the mountains trembled; they shook as his wrath flared up.Smoke rose in his nostrils, a devouring fire poured from his mouth; it kindled coals into flame. He parted the heavens and came down, a dark cloud under his feet. Mounted on a cherub he flew, borne along on the wings of the wind.He made darkness the cover about him; his canopy, heavy thunderheads.Before him scudded his clouds, hail and lightning too. The Lord thundered from heaven; the Most High made his voice resound. He let fly his arrows and scattered them; shot his lightning bolts and dispersed them.Then the bed of the sea appeared; the world’s foundations lay bare, At the roar of the Lord, at the storming breath of his nostrils. He reached down from on high and seized me; drew me out of the deep waters. He rescued me from my mighty enemy, from foes too powerful for me.They attacked me on a day of distress, but the Lord came to my support. He set me free in the open; he rescued me because he loves me. The Lord acknowledged my righteousness, rewarded my clean hands. For I kept the ways of the Lord; I was not disloyal to my God.His laws were all before me, his decrees I did not cast aside.I was honest toward him; I was on guard against sin. So the Lord rewarded my righteousness, the cleanness of my hands in his sight. Toward the faithful you are faithful; to the honest you are honest. Toward the sincere, sincere; but to the perverse you are devious. Humble people you save; haughty eyes you bring low. You, Lord, give light to my lamp; my God brightens the darkness about me. With you I can rush an armed band, with my God to help I can leap a wall. God’s way is unerring; the Lord’s promise is tried and true; he is a shield for all who trust in him. Truly, who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is the rock? This God who girded me with might, kept my way unerring.Who made my feet swift as a deer’s, set me safe on the heights, Who trained my hands for war, my arms to bend even a bow of bronze.You have given me your protecting shield; your right hand has upheld me; you stooped to make me great. You gave me room to stride; my feet never stumbled. I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till I destroyed them. I struck them down; they could not rise; they fell dead at my feet. You girded me with strength for war, subdued adversaries at my feet. My foes you put to flight before me; those who hated me I destroyed. They cried for help, but no one saved them; cried to the Lord but got no answer. I ground them fine as dust in the wind; like mud in the streets I trampled them down. You rescued me from the strife of peoples; you made me head over nations.A people I had not known became my slaves; as soon as they heard of me they obeyed. Foreigners cringed before me; their courage failed; they came trembling from their fortresses. The Lord lives! Blessed be my rock! Exalted be God, my savior! O God who granted me vindication, made peoples subject to me, and preserved me from my enemies.Truly you have exalted me above my adversaries, from the violent you have rescued me. Thus I will proclaim you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name.You have given great victories to your king, and shown kindness to your anointed, to David and his posterity forever.

Psalm 17

A prayer of David.

Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
    listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer—
    it does not rise from deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come from you;
    may your eyes see what is right.

Though you probe my heart,
    though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
    my mouth has not transgressed.
Though people tried to bribe me,
    I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
    through what your lips have commanded.
My steps have held to your paths;
    my feet have not stumbled.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show me the wonders of your great love,
    you who save by your right hand
    those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
    hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
    from my mortal enemies who surround me.

10 They close up their callous hearts,
    and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,
    with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 They are like a lion hungry for prey,
    like a fierce lion crouching in cover.

13 Rise up, Lord, confront them, bring them down;
    with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
14 By your hand save me from such people, Lord,
    from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
    may their children gorge themselves on it,
    and may there be leftovers for their little ones.

15 As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face;
    when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

Saved by Your Right Hand

The Right Hand of the Father – the Hippocampus

Hippocampus is a complex brain structure embedded deep into temporal lobe.of the midbrain – It has a major role in learning and memory.

It is a plastic and vulnerable structure that gets damaged by a variety of stimuli and excess alcohol – Studies have shown that it also gets affected in a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Psalm 16

miktam[a] of David.

– A small collection of pslams –

Keep me safe, my God,
    for in you I take refuge.

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
    apart from you I have no good thing.”
I say of the holy people who are in the land,
    “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
    I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
    or take up their names on my lips.

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
    even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken-

Keeping eyes always on the Lord – The Psalm says

The prayer of David is my prayer as well

the ‘noncom’ – officer commissioned to stand in the wake of being

Quakes – shaken only to be jarred but not broken

the law of the eye is the inheritance guaranteed –

Those who run to praise other gods – suffer greater that staying true to the God made man –

Not feeling pain – slack in the Mind of Christ

The Prefrontal fare – Growing the Mind of Christ – through the midbrain – His holy Mother Mary – the conduit of our prayers

Detractors – prayers not knit but remain in the memory of man – not God – become idols and blood running cold – co create

Distractions have legs – walk away – leaving requium

PSALM 15 
The Righteous Israelite

A psalm of David.

Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy mountain?Whoever walks without blame, doing what is right, speaking truth from the heart; Who does not slander a neighbor, does no harm to another, never defames a friend; Who disdains the wicked, but honors those who fear the Lord; Who keeps an oath despite the cost, lends no money at interest, accepts no bribe against the innocent.Whoever acts like this shall never be shaken.

PSALM 13 
Prayer in Time of Illness

For the leader.

A psalm of David.How long, Lord? Will you utterly forget me? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I carry sorrow in my soul, grief in my heart day after day? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look upon me, answer me, Lord, my God! Give light to my eyes lest I sleep in death, Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed,” lest my foes rejoice at my downfall. I trust in your faithfulness. Grant my heart joy in your help, That I may sing of the Lord, “How good our God has been to me!”

PSALM 12 
Prayer against Evil TounguesFor the leader; “upon the eighth.”

A psalm of David.Help, Lord, for no one loyal remains; the faithful have vanished from the human race. Those who tell lies to one another speak with deceiving lips and a double heart. May the Lord cut off all deceiving lips, and every boastful tongue. Those who say, “By our tongues we prevail; when our lips speak, who can Lord it over us?” “Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the Lord; “I will grant safety to whoever longs for it.” The promises of the Lord are sure, silver refined in a crucible, silver purified seven times.Lord, protect us always; preserve us from this generation.On every side the wicked strut; the shameless are extolled by all

PSALM 11 
Confidence in the Presence of God –

For the leader. Of David. In the Lord I take refuge; how can you say to me, “Flee like a bird to the mountains! See how the wicked string their bows, fit their arrows to the string to shoot from the shadows at the upright. When foundations are being destroyed, what can the upright do?”The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven. God’s eyes keep careful watch; they test all peoples. The Lord tests the good and the bad, hates those who love violence, And rains upon the wicked fiery coals and brimstone, a scorching wind their allotted cup.The Lord is just and loves just deeds; the upright shall see his face.

PSALM 10 
Thanksgiving for Victory and Prayer for JusticeWhy, Lord, do you stand at a distance and pay no heed to these troubled times? Arrogant scoundrels pursue the poor; they trap them by their cunning schemes. The wicked even boast of their greed; these robbers curse and scorn the Lord. In their insolence the wicked boast: “God doesn’t care, doesn’t even exist.” Yet their affairs always succeed; they ignore your judgment on high; they sneer at all who oppose them. They say in their hearts, “We will never fall; never will we see misfortune.” Their mouths are full of oaths, violence, and lies; discord and evil are under their tongues. They wait in ambush near towns; their eyes watch for the helpless. to murder the innocent in secret. They lurk in ambush like lions in a thicket, hide there to trap the poor, snare them and close the net. The helpless are crushed, laid low; they fall into the power of the wicked, Who say in their hearts, “God pays no attention, shows no concern, never bothers to look.” Rise up, Lord God! Raise your arm! Do not forget the poor!Why should the wicked scorn God, say in their hearts, “God doesn’t care”? But you do see; you do observe this misery and sorrow; you take the matter in hand. To you the helpless can entrust their cause; you are the defender of orphans. Break the arms of the wicked and depraved; make them account for their crimes; let none of them survive. The Lord is king forever; the nations have vanished from God’s land. You listen, Lord, to the needs of the poor; you encourage them and hear their prayers. You win justice for the orphaned and oppressed; no one on earth will cause terror again.

PSALM 7 
God the Vindicator

A plaintive song of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush, the Benjaminite.Lord my God, in you I take refuge; rescue me; save me from all who pursue me, lest they maul me like lions, tear me to pieces with none to save. Lord my God, if I am at fault in this, if there is guilt on my hands, if I have repaid my friend with evil, I spared even those who hated me without cause. Then let my enemy pursue and overtake me, trample my life to the ground, and leave me dishonored in the dust. Rise up, Lord, in your anger; rise against the fury of my foes. Wake to judge as you have decreed. Have the assembly of the peoples gather about you; sit on your throne high above them. O Lord, judge of the nations. Grant me justice, Lord, for I am blameless, free of any guilt. Bring the malice of the wicked to an end; uphold the innocent, O God of justice, who tries hearts and minds. A shield before me is God who saves the honest heart. God is a just judge, who rebukes in anger every day.

PSALM 6 – Prayer in Distress

For the leader; with stringed instruments, “upon the eighth.”

A psalm of David.Do not reprove me in your anger, Lord, nor punish me in your wrath.Have pity on me, Lord, for I am weak; heal me, Lord, for my bones are trembling.In utter terror is my soul – and you, Lord, how long…? Turn, Lord, save my life; in your mercy rescue me. For who among the dead remembers you?  Who praises you in Sheol? (Hebrew underworld – the land of the Dead)- I am wearied with sighing; all night long tears drench my bed; my couch is soaked with weeping.My eyes are dimmed with sorrow, worn out because of all my foes. Away from me, all who do evil! The Lord has heard my weeping.The Lord has heard my prayer; the Lord takes up my plea.My foes will be terrified and disgraced; all will fall back in sudden shame.

PSALM 5  – Prayer for Divine HelpFor the leader; with wind instruments.

A psalm of David.Hear my words, O Lord; 
   listen to my sighing. Hear my cry for help, my king, my God! To you I pray, O Lord; 
   at dawn you will hear my cry; 
   at dawn I will plead before you and wait. You are not a god who delights in evil; 
   no wicked person finds refuge with you; 
   the arrogant cannot stand before you.You hate all who do evil; 
   you destroy all who speak falsely.Murderers and deceivers the Lord abhors. But I can enter your house because of your great love. I can worship in your holy temple because of my reverence for you, Lord. Guide me in your justice because of my foes; 
   make straight your way before me. For there is no sincerity in their mouths; 
   their hearts are corrupt.Their throats are open graves; 
   on their tongues are subtle lies.Declare them guilty, God; 
   make them fall by their own devices.Drive them out for their many sins; 
   they have rebelled against you. Then all who take refuge in you will be glad and forever shout for joy. Protect them that you may be the joy of those who love your name.For you, Lord, bless the just; 
   you surround them with favor like a shield.

PSALM 4 – Trust in God

For the leader; with stringed instruments. A psalm of David.Answer when I call, my saving GodIn my troubles, you cleared a way;    show me favor; hear my prayer.

How long will you people mock my honor, love what is worthless, chase after lies? Know that the Lord works wonders for the faithful;
   the Lord hears when I call out.

Tremble and do not sin;
   upon your beds ponder in silence.
Offer fitting sacrifice and trust in the LordMany say, “May we see better times! Lord, show us the light of your face!” But you have given my heart more joy than they have when grain and wine abound.In peace I shall both lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me secure. Psalm, 3 – A psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.How many are my foes, Lord!How many rise against me! How many say of me, 
   “God will not save that one.”But you, Lord, are a shield around me; 
   my glory, you keep my head high. Whenever I cried out to the Lord, I was answered from the holy mountain. Whenever I lay down and slept, the Lord preserved me to rise again. I do not fear, then, thousands of people arrayed against me on every side. Arise, Lord! Save me, my God! 
   You will shatter the jaws of all my foes; 
   you will break the teeth of the wicked. Safety comes from the Lord!Your blessing for your people

PSALM 2 
For A Royal Coronation
Why do the nations protest and the peoples grumble in vain? Kings on earth rise up and princes plot together against the Lord and his anointed:”Let us break their shackles and cast off their chains!” The one enthroned in heaven laughs; 
   the Lord derides them, Then speaks to them in anger, terrifies them in wrath: “I myself have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will proclaim the decree of the Lord, who said to me, “You are my son; 
   today I am your father. Only ask it of me, and I will make your inheritance the nations, your possession the ends of the earth. With an iron rod you shall shepherd them, like a clay pot you will shatter them.” And now, kings, give heed; 
   take warning, rulers on earth.Serve the Lord with fear; 
   with trembling bow down in homage,Lest God be angry and you perish from the way in a sudden blaze of anger.Happy are all who take refuge in God!

PSALM 1 

True Happiness In God’s Law

Happy those who do not follow the counsel of the wicked, Nor go the way of sinners, nor sit in company with scoffers.

Rather, the law of the Lord is their joy;
   God’s law they study day and night.

They are like a tree planted near streams of water, that yields its fruit in season;
   Its leaves never wither;
   whatever they do prospers.

But not the wicked! They are like chaff driven by the wind.

Therefore the wicked will not survive judgment, nor will sinners in the assembly of the just.

The Lord watches over the way of the just, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.

THE SURRENDER NOVENA –

January 15, 2022 –

After a hundred years – Emily Dickinson
Nobody knows the Place
Agony that enacted there
Motionless as Peace

Weeds triumphant ranged
Strangers strolled and spelled
At the lone Orthography
Of the Elder Dead

Winds of Summer Fields
Recollect the way —
Instinct picking up the Key
Dropped by memory —

Motionless as Peace – (E. Dickinson) – HT Wagner

Remembering the Way

Raw winds of Winter’s Way

Bleak is the changes of the Will to be

He died to set us free

Motionless He lay

Abraham to kill him — Emily Dickinson
Was distinctly told —
Isaac was an Urchin — mischievous child
Abraham was old —

Not a hesitation —
Abraham complied —
Flattered by Obeisance
Tyranny demurred — misgivings

Living a Tale to Tell – HT Wagner

When life seems not for living

There is still a tale to tell

Always giving

Not receiving

Taxes the psyche

Not renewing

When bitten by the bite of enmity of the harrowing kind

It clouds the growth

Drowns the living

It is a mission to turn foes to friend

Befriending the lost and lonely

Beaten down by levy of the living

A tombstone can become

When Anxiety Smothers – HT Wagner

When turned around on low road – lost

the air to breathes static

Road paved with thistles and thorns

Heart pounds panic and fear

The river of blood is clogged with barbs of hate

In the bushes are the misers and

Rock throwers hide to wait

World War Three – HT Wagner

World Wars I and II were apocalyptic

But WW III eclipses all wars of history

Man-Made to end all wars

Profiteers vs the common good-

Processing – Altering foods

Extends shelf life and profits explode

Over-milling sweet whole grain robs life for the prefrontal fare

Over-heating sweet oils for frying

and dairy create Modern Inflammation – rebounds – astounds

Genetic Modification magnifies the no longer needed mechanism of the seed –

Taxing the body to accomodate the removal of no longer needed seed locks and lectins – the life guards that keep the predators away

Best kept secret – Medicare the footprint

The doctors office and not the beach

Inflammation – from food substrates no longer viable for life

Sustaining the Money Changers of modern days

Who is to throw them out of the Temple of the Holy Spirit –

When taste rules unabashed – nobody cares

Processed food thinking – The Office – a farce to showcase the method of thermal mindless mind.

Making modern man a slave to white lies, political correctness

Anxiety Depression the only way out –

Instead of the Way to Truth – Holy replaced with worldly wanton malicious modern mindlessness

Living the Life of the Mindless

Being in the Lost land of the binary fare

the language –

Booze – the fluid of the blood

Where pathos is the path to hide

Other – never there

Self is the only Way

Truth is a lie

Covered with covertness – not openly acknowledged or displayed

Truth – treads not on the feelings of others

more important than what is real

Reality exists only in – what is hidden

Everyone knows the deception but no one talks about it

The lowly is the highest form of being

The hints mean- denotes – is non existent

No one know or even cares

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds”  St Paul

Renewing the binary mind is ‘doing the same stupid thing and expecting different results’-

Never to tread on the parcel of life not known

– the heavenly fare

Nothing more lonely than viewing the back of a head reading nothingness

Confluence and Cosmic Influence – HT Wagner

Two rivers converge and for a mighty flow

The River of life

The River of the senses

Census taking

Heart breaking

The blending of the Matter and the Spirit

Creation heaves and stutters

Shutters

When life hop scotchs

Unwary of the pull and drag

of the tick tock of the Cosmic Heart

To Die is Gain – HT Wagner

Holy Death

We might destroy the one who has the power of death –

Leaves in bubbles that burst

What is gained is lost

Holy life knits bonds of brass

Golden strands in the the Mind of Christ

Connecting the subconscious uptick to the vast Universe of eternal life

  • “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places . . . He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.”

  • “Brethren, do not become children in sense: but in malice be children, and in sense be perfect.”

On Children – Kahlil Gibran – 1883-1931

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. –     And he said-

     Your children are not your children.

     They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

     They come through you but not from you,

     And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

     You may give them your love but not your thoughts,

     For they have their own thoughts.

     You may house their bodies but not their souls,

     For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

     You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

     For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

     You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

     The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

     Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

     For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

  • “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” 

God’s Gifts-How God Works! – HT Wagner from ‘Living in God’s Space’

I asked for patience-

And He gave me a computer that runs like molasses

I asked for a new computer

Sent one that did not like me

I asked to learn to pray

And He gave me depression

I asked for wealth and grace

And he gave me aging parents to care for

I asked to be closer to my brother

And his business folded

I prayed for removal of obstacles that stood in the way of my son’s destiny

He moved them away-

  • “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grapsed, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Rocks in my pocket – HT Wagner on attitude from Living in Gods Space – Amazon Books

Rattling around

Wanted to throw

Thought better 

Free Will

Dwelling on thoughts that judge
Thought it okay 

As long as the consequences are known

Not so

Thoughts that hate, revenge

Cause regrets

Will steal time from creation

Thought again 

Free will

Tool for making choices

God has set them before us

Chose live or choose death

Review your blueprint

Study what serves

All of God’s capital  

Like coins

Let fly

Or Bury in the Sand

Read my mind

Find those petitions that

My ‘File Clerk’ misplaced

Pray with me on my morning walk

When I am anxious

Wrap me in layers and layers of

Your grace for safe keeping

All PAUL THE APOSTLE Quotes about “Earth”

  • “God has overlooked the times of such ignorance, yet now he is telling mankind that they should all everywhere repent. Because he has set a day in which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has furnished a guarantee to all men in that he has resurrected him from the dead.”
  • “If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.” 
  • “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

  • “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

    “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” 
  • “Therefore, I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

The Will to Give – HT Wagner – Legacy Poems

In my early morning haze, 

I find myself hugging my coffee cup, 

Waiting for that moment of energy.

As I wait, I watch my mother and my dog.

Sadie lies silently at the old woman’s feet, 

Moving only when she moves or

To catch a fat laden morsel dropped sneakily to the floor—

Like food smuggled to a prisoner.

Caught!

The old woman is caught in the act.

Confronted!

“That’s why the ants come in!”  I say.

They lower their eyes knowing that they have been scolded!

Somehow we know that

The dog can always count on her treats,

The ants will come in  

And the Forgetful Old Giving Tree will remember the only thing that’s important…

The will to give.

  • “For he who has died has been freed from sin…14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” 
  • “By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us – set us right with him, make us fit for him – we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand – out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.” 

 The Fabric of GodAmi Christi – Lord Make My Prayer – HT Wagner from Living in Gods Space – Amazon Books

Listen with Your Eyes

But do not judge

Presume Positive

The jerk who cut you off

May have lost a loved one

The short tempered 

May be distracted by an unintended chaos

Our hearts open

Insults frustrated

Foiled and Vanished 

When never expressed

More space for kind

Profitable bricks of creation

Mortar 

The Fabric of God

  • “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 
  • “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant; later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

For Insight – – HT Wagner from Living in Gods Space – Amazon Books

Mindsight

For Friends that share

For Friends that wear

and tug at heart strings

and make tears

Tarry Unfairly

Put in Path

For a reason to be found

The lessons learned through hardship

Patient awareness of Your mysteries

Creation Wheels

Waxing and Waning

Wanting to be born

Anew

Refreshed and Restored

To Love another day
