BELIEVE

Believe by Ann Marquette

It is time to call it quits with social media and will deactivate my FB account Saturday night (4 days from now).  I will begin the New Year with A Blank Slate” for a clean heart, clear mind, and open spirit.  I plan think more about writing, and posting to my blog more often.  And of course, I will be delighted for communications from and to those who wish to keep in touch.

I give it all to you, Lord Jesus
This mind
This soul
This heart
The spirit within
I am letting go

Letting it all go
All the muddled thoughts
All the mixed emotions
All the confused feelings
Too much, too many
Have scarred the very essence
Of this being

I give to you
This empty vessel
This blank slate
For you to make it new
For you to fill it up
Fill it to overflowing
With Your goodness
Your grace
Your light
Your love

Write what you will
On this blank slate
That is me
Waiting to be cleansed
And renewed
With Your Spirit, Lord Jesus

Heart

You opened your arms to welcome me
You spoke as to a friend
You smiled as we passed
Your heart whispered,
As it flowed alongside mine
“Come Home”

Your charm and beauty inspire me
Your soul reaches out and touches me
Your spirit fills me with endless possibilities, and
Calls Me Home

You wrap me in a warm embrace,
As if a long parted lover
You fill me with joy and comfort
A sense deep inside, that you are
Calling Me Home.

Dedicated to all who have been, are, and will be a part of my patchwork life.
What an amazing life
Like a beautiful patchwork quilt
Various shades of colors
A variety of designs~

Family, friends, acquaintances
Some famous personalities
Some only whispers
Some a passing breeze
Some who stay forever,
In this life and beyond~

Traumatic painful times
Soft and quiet hours
And oh yes…
Miraculous, magical moments
Peaceful, wonderfully loving moments~

The most beautiful patches
All the special people
Happy times
Magic moments…
But, every single one
Sewn together
To match, blend, highlight, contrast
Every Blessed piece
Make up this…
Wonderful patchwork life of mine~

This was inspired by the story Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend  
By Matthew Dicks http://matthewdicks.com/memoirs-of-an-imaginary-friend
The story is told by Budo who is the Imaginary Friend about his precarious life.
I suspect many of us feel invisible, even to those who are friends or friendly
acquaintances, at times. 

***

You can see my human body,
But you don’t SEE me.

You can hear my voice
But you don’t HEAR me.

You say we are “friends”
But do you really KNOW me?

Am I your friend,
Even when it is not convenient?

Am I your friend,
Only when you want something?

Do you KNOW
My strengths,
Do you care?

Do you KNOW
My likes and dislikes
Do you care?

Do you KNOW
What hurts me,
Do you care?

Do you KNOW
What makes me happy
Do you care?

Can you really SEE me
Do you want to KNOW me
Do you care?

Are we really FRIENDS
Or just IMAGINARY FRIENDS?

Have YOU, ever experienced a sense of being invisible?  How does it make you feel?

Recently I sensed you were already here and I wrote this…

Believe In New Beginnings by Ann Marquette

Believe In New Beginnings by Ann Marquette

 

Oh My Love

Who are you

Where are you

Already I feel your tender kiss

And you holding me close

I know your love

Beyond ever imagined

Who are you my love

Where are you

I am here waiting
