Do you see them?
Are your eyes truly open?
Or do you pretend
Walking blindly among
What hurts your heart
To look at....?
I have never been able to close my eyes to those in need. I pray I never do. Yes, at times I have cursed and wondered the purpose of being blessed with seeing what is not on the surface. That somehow, my vision needs to go deeper. Why do I read such pain in eyes I do not know? What am I being directed to see?
Years ago, I realized that through my own pains and traumas, I was given a gift. The gift being awareness to take that and use it to help raise another's soul.
Oh hungry one
Why are you crying?
Who has wounded your heart
Let me caress this affliction
Breathe grace drenching
You in abundant love...
I humbly offer you my heart
Use it as you see fit
Hold on to it when
Life shatters your essence
I see beyond the surreptitious smile
Let me look inside your soul...
I cherish so many memories of sharing in such profound pain....What do you say to a woman who has found Hell on earth? Does anyone else see the deadness in her eyes? When I am blessed with having those in need come into my path, my first thought is always a prayer...A prayer to be given strength, direction, and the wisdom to say what needs to be said to help heal this emotional tribulation.
I dedicate this to my beautiful Mother who healed my wanting heart as an innocent child. The plan for my life was formed without my awareness . Years later, looking within I found my calling.
Last year I took early retirement. Moving to a building to help my beautiful friend who was battling fourth stage cancer. She actually passed before I was able to move in.
Once again, I do know I am here for a reason. When you open your own heart and ask God to direct your walk in life...HE LISTENS...I give thanks...
Today I am in a very reflection mood...praying still to be directed as He wants me to be. Amen....
