god, teach me
how to love this man
properly as he ought to be loved
i will follow the path
i lost
you kept an eye on me
as i stubbornly set off
through the wilderness alone
and sent him to find me
when i lost all direction
thank you thank you
god, please, may i have
wisdom, courage, serenity
to carry with me
on this trail
with him to you
i am willing
to give my everything
to carry my children
to your alter
they are beautiful gifts
i do not deserve
and so trust to your keeping
god, take my will
my life my heart my soul
into your vast grace
i would be
passed through the flames
burning my burdens and filth
washed clean in the river
pure and lovely

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
