Open My Eyes, That I May See

Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me

You are God's work of art, His poem

Ephesians 2:10 (Passion Translation)

We have become His poetry, a recreated people that will fulfill the destiny He has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it.

My mother was a poet. She wrote this poem about me when I was in my late teens or early twenties.

In Praise of a Quiet Daughter

a mother of six blesses 

the child who 

accepts the world

the way things are.

The child of quiet contemplation

The stargazer

the serene

The True Believer

who is the waterlily

that becomes the brook

filling and refilling

replenishing her faith.
