Life Reflections

Thoughts on what’s going on in my life.

Sweet Sabbath

Thy coming brings sweetness to the air Clouds of peace overwhelm my soul And I am at rest I lay aside grievous burdens To bask in the glory of fellowship Heaven and earth in perfect communion And something magical happens inside me The thought of you departing...

Owning 25

A few days ago I turned 25. And, guess what? I was thrilled and excited about it. I had been looking forward to being 25 for a while, and if you’ve known me or read my previous post, being happy about a birthday is a big deal for me. I’ve come a long way from being...

How is it

How is it That we bask in comfort While others gasp for air At the edge of the cliff Between death and life   How is it That we fuss over petty things While some hearts beat furiously Fleeing the rush of that Which the earth spews   How is it That we nurse...

This Story Called Life

If life is a journey, then each of us is a lonesome traveler. Not that we travel alone from start to finish, but that our path is distinctly our own. No one else starts at the same exact point as we do, no one else ends at the same point as we do. No one else takes...

The Peculiarity of Joy

This thought is by no means original to me, but recent events have brought this back to mind. In the human experience, pain and suffering are those that have a leveling effect on (pretty much) every human being on the planet. What I mean by a leveling effect is the...

Her

Petals on a stem Draft through silk and the like Gracefulness, edginess Mystery, transparence Conflicting emblems For Eve and her daughters Who can say L'essence d'une femme Beauty's meaning Measure of femineity O to lose sight of I To be fixed upward And at last find...

Le cri de l’été

En paix, en temps de tranquillité, c’était mon désarroi En aisance et sûreté, c’était ma ruine Trois saisons et une Je me lamente sur celle-ci plus que les trois Ne l’ai-je pas vu ? Le fardeau était un présent Dans la fournaise, j’étais béni L’adversité m’a mis sur...

Hello and Goodbye

Bright sunshine backdropped the moment of hello Breezy mornings, easy smiles Yet red was the color of evening Even more dreadful was the black that blankets the night I spoke and found a rushed answer Was that a goodbye? I guess so long, fair-weather friend

Growing Joys

What I wanted to do with the title is the following: "Growing Pains Joys," but apparently Wordpress doesn't allow strikethrough characters on the title. This entry is one that I had meant to write since last summer, and if I did, it would have been titled “Growing...

More Than Necessary Food

His Word unto me is morning dew the night’s thirst refreshed at the entrance of day His Word unto me is hidden treasure its hunter shares its unveiled splendor His Word unto me is mystery boundless searchable space not yet seen His Word unto me is purging current...

Testimony of Grace

There with every slide, I see God's grace written all over it. It was God all along who had helped me. Sustained by God Himself and by the prayers of the saints, on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 I passed my program's qualifying exam. I have to write about it, mostly for...
