After the smoke has cleared

What is left of me?
Blow away the ashes.
Give Jesus all that still smarts.
Find the parts I still remember.
be all that I can be.

As female as God created.
As male as needs must.
Survive,grow, always praise my Lord.

Use my time,
use my skills,
use my heart.

Love my children,
all Gods children.
Seek 'His'Wisdom as my guide.

'He' will heal.
'He' will nurture.
'He will strengthen.
'He' will uphold.

Love 'Him' for all that 'He' gives me.
Blow away the ashes.
Enough burning has gone on.


I wrote this piece in 2000 ------ in the aftermath of a very painful/difficult time. I hope it will help others.
