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
