Thyself In Glory

From deep hurt and loss a web to spin
In threads of anguish caught this heart within
Soulful reflection and resolve to proclaim
In forgiveness and faith call God’s name
To feel the knowing, the purpose, the plan
Ever God’s gift to life and man
Free be this heart and lamenting soul
Thyself in glory to live life’s goal.

Inspired by one who freed herself of her web spun.

  1. Hi Rosemarie - beautiful image and words to capture the web of unforgiving. I freed my heart and calmed my spirit when I opened to another's pain and experience and let go of my own and could see and feel from their vantage point in the web we weaved - the peace and freedom are such a blessing. Amen, thank you for your wisdom, artistry, creativity, spirited knowing and love.
    Love Gail
