any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
there are things in life we can not carry ourselves..and it is only in realizing it...and our dependence on a power beyond ours...that we realize we have been given the strength...
Drinks the chalice of grace - beautiful words, and it is the power of favour that gives us life. Beautifully written and touching the soul.
There definitely are those times in life when one's solitude is torn to pieces by thoughts and circumstances. It is good to know that even there Love shines down and holds one's hand.....and brings 'the desolate heart' some peace!
The contrast between the pain and the resolution of grace is so powerful giving all the force in that important word then ... so beautifully captured.
When everything is just too hard, too painful, simply too much, it is a comfort to know we are not alone.
ah yes His grace is sufficient [2 Cor 12:9]much love...
Very moving and somewhat wild. it sparks! I love it!
