As I walk so freely on my path
I know in my heart
That I am guided by love
The faith I feel as each obstacle is unveiled
Surpasses the fear of the multiple unknowns
I look inside through different eyes
And there is a kaleidoscope of colors
That grow in their hue
And depth of meaning
What once was used to hurt
Now only shows in shadows
Weeds to be plucked
Origin to be noticed
I am growing my love
From the inside out
And the light that surrounds my being
Has an essence that I felt before
And I remember
When my soul
Only to love
Let me move through this, oh Lord
Let me walk through the darkness
with light in my steps
knowing that truth dwells within
Let me grow through this, oh Lord
Let me know that the lesson
was worth the pain
and through the struggle
I did gain
A love that brings me closer to you,
a knowing deep inside
that the beauty that is…
inspired through my heart center
The voice that speaks from the depths of my being
The love from the connection to the eternal
Resides in my soul and whispers sweet secrets
And paints fire in the sky!
I have a burning desire deep inside, smoldering embers left alone to warm the dark places.
It exists. It has always been there, waiting patiently to catch my heart and erupt in flames of passion.
The beauty in the sky mirrors my soul, suddenly aflame, noticed, honored, loved, alive!
I send a wish of love for a 2017 filled with…
TIME to reacquaint with yourself
UNDERSTANDING of things that are troubling
FAITH that it will work out
PERSEVERANCE to follow your dream
HONOR for all of life and the process of living it fully!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I’m so excited to share two of my favorite people…both who’ve just published books! My blogger friends use words that will touch you…I promise!
If you don’t already know them, please go visit their blogs, and if it feels right to you, invite their words into your home!
Dennis Ference, at MERGING TRAFFIC, captured my soul with the first words I ever read by him. There is a soothing “knowing” that he shares which can only come from a place of deep understanding. I picture turning on a faucet of love, and the “water” that comes out is his words.
Dennis’ book, “From the Water’s Edge ~ Daily Offerings for the Wayfaring Soul,” is a compilation of 365 poems, one for each day of the year, and the poems are accompanied by photos taken by Lily (read a favorite story about Lily) his beautiful granddaughter.
You can purchase Dennis’ book at the following places:
Kimberly Harding, at SOUL HEALING ART, is a very gifted woman who pairs her beautiful art with words that deliver a dose of medicine to the soul! I am amazed at the bounty of her creative prowess.
A long time fan of Kim’s, I have witnessed a very clear shift in her energy of late. She is standing in her power and it is displayed so beautifully in the way she marries her blessed words with her art.

Thank you, my friends, for allowing me to share these incredible people with you. I hope you all are swimming in Blessitude! ❤
The lonely wind whips through my hair
As my heart bleeds real tears
The sky is beyond my reach
And my hopes turn to fears
Broken mirror…tortured dreams
Pieces on the ground
I am damaged
Missing pieces, parts not found
What I fight is all that’s true
Naked to the core of who I came to be
What is that noise I hear
I think it’s coming from me
I have dug deep
And the answers weren’t there
The moment of feeling overwhelmed
Disappears as I throw caution to the air
All that caused fear evaporates
As I realize the questions were all wrong
The very thing I kept hidden
Was in plain sight all along
Lorrie & Harlon ❤ ❤
Ah! My dear friend Harlon, from A PATIENT VOICE, nudged me out of my semi-retirement to work on this collaboration with him. We wrote this poem over the last couple months (mainly due to my time constraints.) It was a wonderful experience for me, as we seemed to just flow as if we were one…which I would say we are!
I have missed being here on my blog and visiting you all to see what you have been up to. My life has changed in many ways, certainly in ways that don’t leave me a whole lot of time. I hope to be a bit more present in the near future. I really miss you, my friends and I think of you often. I wish you many wonderful things, and most of all BLESSITUDE!! ❤ ❤
