YES, I AM

Painting by Danny McBride

INKLING FOR LENT

A Prayer – I Am From

I am from the Potter’s hand

with no choice but to become one of a kind

From clay He fashioned my bones and flesh

a wondering mind full of desires, yet with temptations of my own design

I am on this journey full of surprises and disappointments

yet given all the love and forgiveness I need

to return to the Potter’s hands

washing me clean for eternity.

In thanksgiving for my life, I write!

…If you have never  composed an “I Am From” poem (Google it) about yourself, you should.  You will discover so much about your essence and, maybe like myself, will write several versions to appreciate your awesome complexity and purpose and love yourself as you are…

humbly, your scribeforlove

INKLING FOR LENT

“The test of love is always what the lover does or is prepared to do for the sake of the beloved.”

Fr. Gerard Vann

…hearts may be tepid but in confessing sins, hearts can be forgiven and set on fire with love…

…may your heart always be filled with mercy and hope…freedom.
