These twilight tears
are full of years
each drop a globe in season.
My life was shame.
I take no blame,
but joy, no earthly reason.

My twilight tears
speak no regret,
the days I spent apart,
dreaming of
my first sweet Love
whose Heart is in my heart.

These twilight tears
are void of fears,
each drop, a globe of madness.
His bliss divine
will soon be mine.
Iíll have no time for sadness.

These twilight years
are full of tears
of joy and jubilation!
Like a child
excited, wild!
I cry in expectation!

Oh God, my King
To You I sing
and dance with leaps of glee!
Giggling here
to Know Youíre near
Forever You and me.

Now if we are children, then we are heirsóheirs of God and co-heirs with Christ... I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. Romans 8:17-19 NIV

Hi Rachel. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Twilight Tears, actually did very well in the Twilight Years Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 6th in that Level.

There were a lot of entries this week, and the competition is always intense in Level 1, so you deserve a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference next month. Itís going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement. (If Iíve already mentioned that to you, forgive me. Weíre just so excited about letting members know about this great gathering.)
