Each Rising Day

Fear and suppression no longer take hold
So be the glory of spirit and soul
Life and valor fill chambers of heart
From which anger and hurt do depart
God's power and reign within abide
Powerless be the taunter, the one to chide
Mind to fathom trove and treasure
Fulfillment and abundance in whole measure
The gift of knowing to mark each rising day
Beauty, grace and truth, blessed be The Way.

  1. Oh I so love this poem, no room in my heart for anything other than forgivenees and love, but I remember myself in a different time and is so much better, a loving, kind and caring spirit is so beautiful....Hugs

  2. 'life, valor, knowing' - a powerful combination.

  3. Rose Marie-
    oh the healing journey in words and image fills my heart with understanding joy. I know of this place - this space - once so far from reach and sight - and for so long now is where my soul reigns and remembers safely - knowing I have come in to the light - the darkness my memory to behold.

    Love and honor of healing

  4. Bernie, and it is love in our heart that defines the joy we choose to live. Blessings to you dear friend.

  5. Bonnie, the three words selected are so reflective of your "powerful combination." Thank you for your caring and your friendship.

  6. Gail, My light bearing friend - you are ever present with a lantern of light and love to make known the quest , the path, the journey. Thank you.
