WILLING TO EMBRACE

July 2, 2019

Forgiveness is a gift,
it is about setting us both free.
it is about reaching across
all the divides,
across all the barriers,
across everything that makes us not
want to be willing to embrace.

Being willing to embrace
is not physical,
its about allowing our love
to be unconditional
and transformative.
it’s about being able to
move through all barriers,
defy all the odds,
embracing in the
unconditional love
which lives within us.

Being willing to embrace
is about being resistant
in a world that teaches us to be
mean,
petty,
vindictive
and cruel.

Being willing to embrace
is about opening our hearts
removing all the scabs
all the hard spots we have
allowed to grow
and embracing others
with the same grace,
goodness,
and unconditional love
given to us.

This is not just about embracing others.
It is also about embracing
ourselves.
It is about loving ourselves
unconditionally.
it is about being
willing to embrace
ourselves as God
embraces us.

FORGIVENESS

March 15, 2019

An eye for an eye,
A tooth for a tooth,
This is how so many of us are taught
What it teaches us
is to be unforgiving and violent

What if we learned new lesson.
What if we learned to radiate love
in all situations
to all people
and most importantly
to ourselves

What if we remembered that
forgiveness is a gift
to you and to me.
Forgiveness sets us both free.

Forgiveness is not forgetting,
it is just releasing us both
from the pain of hatred
and violence

So today, I begin by forgiving
myself,
others
and then I ask forgiveness
from others
and myself
This helps set the world free

OUT OF EXILE

November 9, 2018

I remember the process
Of sending the parts of me
Away.
I sent them into exile
because I had internalized
the lies,
others had told me were truths.
It wasn’t all at once.
It was a process of
not seeing my beauty
not owning my intelligence
not appreciating all of
who God created me to be.

Then I recognized the lies.
I remembered the truth that
God loves me
just as I am.
I opened my arms
welcomed the pieces home
sought forgiveness
and embraced all of
who I am and who
I was created to be.

FOCUS

September 14, 2018

Words are so powerful
They tell me about you
How you see the world
What you see in me

When you speak
Ill of others
Justified or not,
Gossip or libel
The focus is on
Their inadequacies
