Epiphany

  What’s meant for bad shall turn for good. Dispel the dark, in light I’m stood. Set down their spiteful litany, now trickles through epiphany.     There comes a time when you’ve borne condemnation long enough, from without and within. It must not, does not, define me. I’ve laboured long and hard, and then…

Resolving

    Resolving to cut down on toxins we offer mutual healing bolsterings. I’ve been consumed and now am purging – lighter life and love unfurling.     A few of us have acknowledged that we’ve been taking in to ourselves too much that is doing us harm. We have agreed to take better care of ourselves,…

  A friend is coming, collar-free, we’ll have repast and repartee.

reflection

    When all reflect on what’s been pillaged will there be focus on God’s image?     People can be robbed of many things, the worst of which is their dignity and self-worth.  We have such capacity for judging and criticising others and shouldn’t really be surprised by it, yet it remains shocking. ‘Othering’…

Scoping out

  New starts can be pioneering or iterative, or sometimes a blend of both. Mine is coming out of both. It’s a resurrection field made rich by the rotting debris of the past. This is a place to let words explore and express where I’m at in the light of where I’ve been. Wordplay thrills…
