I love to read and it wasn’t until my adult years that I took a liking to poetry. I began to understand and relate to the words and the effects that poetry has not just on our minds but to get down into our hearts. It is a most talented gift, appreciate it if you have it. It is an encouragement, and as it encourages me I will try to encourage you with it as well. LOL….no I do not write poetry, I guess I have never tried. Well that is something to think about…..hmmm. Anyway please enjoy today’s inspiring poem…Ta-ta!
by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Beloved, this the heart I offer thee
Is purified from old idolatry,
From outworn hopes, and from the lingering stain
Of passion’s dregs, by penitential pain.
Take thou it, then, and fill it up for me
With thine unstinted love, and it shall be
An earthy chalice that is made divine
By its red draught of sacramental wine.

Woman of God on a mission to spread love most of all, kindness and the truth about the Savior. I thank Him daily for saving and keeping me, bringing me into the knowledge of Him and steadily making intercession for me on behalf of the Father. Every lesson that I give goes to me first. I speak not as though I am different but that I am the same as any other follower of Christ, seeking wisdom and understanding from God and depending on Him fully to provide everything that I need in this life.
