Sherry: Alone but not lonely
Playful ideas twirl through my mind as I bolt my room.
I dance with my own imagination…. I feast with my own thoughts…
I’ve never realized solitude can be this beautiful and gratifying! My body stretches out in blissful contentment upon my bed, the silence of seclusion lifting my consciousness to such a blessed state.
“Ah! This is freedom! This…is pure delight!”
Cheerful beams pierce through the blinds, inviting me to look outside. I watch the afternoon landscape: birds above; blossoms below; earth colors everywhere.
I relish each moment. My heart is filled with warmth.
“Thank you, Lord for giving me eyes to see and appreciate the wondrous beauty in everything you have created!. Your magnificence shines through your handiwork! You are great and marvelous, oh Lord!”
Here, now, a song is born…
I hear my baby’s first cry. I shed tears – not of sorrow, not of pain…but of pure joy and hope and love…
I guess all mothers are like this…
I can’t explain it…
Harry: Forgiven and Free
This is the most unbelievable thing on planet Earth!
You see, my life was such a terrible mess before I met the Lord! But look at me now! I’ve been reborn! Radically changed!
No more wild parties and empty revelries… No more dopin’ and drinkin’ and casual sex… Jesus has given me liberty from all these! I won’t trade nothin’ for it. No, never!
It’s really awesome to know that my past has no more power over me. The preacher says it’s all under the blood of “The Lamb.” Well, I believe he’s right. My Bible says that I’m a new creature in Christ.
Praise God! I’m fully forgiven!
Thank God! I’m totally free!
