Searcher of the Scattered

Ezekiel 34 scripture

As a Good Shepherd

The Lord God

Seeks, saves His sheep

Syllable Lune

For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.”

Ezekiel 34:11-12 KJV

Modern Slavery

Victims

Know no freedom

Mired in slavery

They pray and hope for a victor

To come

Cinquain

Modern slavery exists today in many places worldwide. Be it sexual exploitation, forced marriage, or forced labor, many women, men and children are victims.

You can help set them free by spreading awareness, making a donation to help one of the many organizations in their fight to stop this, or simply just pray that those who can help or intervene will do so.

I have teamed up with Dressember.org this month as a Advocate to spread awareness and raise funds. If you’d like to donate to my team’s campaign “Help Stop the Chains of Abuse” I would very much appreciate your support.

Handmade Origami Dress Ornaments I will be giving a free handmade Origami Dress Ornament to anyone who makes a donation of $5.00 or more by December 15th.

Blessings and Sorrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

All have some

Present, or tomorrows

Like a beating drum

Life constantly harrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

Keep the faith to overcome

And stand strong in all the morrows

Rhyme

Inspired by:–Don Moen–“Be It Onto Me” song lyrics:

You promised to carry our sorrows
Lord, we believe it’s true
You promised unending tomorrows
Lord we receive them from you

Mending the Broken Pieces

Broken windchimb

Discouraged, tearfully

I picked up the broken pieces.

Another trial.

Reaching for the Light of hope

To show me the way

I prayed for healing and strength

To mend broken wings

So I might fly, to try again

‘Til I reach heaven’s reward

Discouraged, Broken Wings, Healing,

Strength, Calm, Acceptance

“Our heart mends as our inner self—the central or innermost part of our identity—is wrapped around the Light inside of us, rather than around the people who have harmed us. This one small step changes the way we see things”. Suzanne Eller
