Finding Healing

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 19, 2014

Today I wake with a hunger

to search the valley

A place where birth lingers

with it's sacred memories

Instead I find voices of condemnation

wounds which left me bleeding, sticks and stones

Still I look for healing, grace, truth, reality beyond

the narrow confines of intolerance and judgement.....

Finding none...

I climbed the mountain summit

Where I had placed my hopes and dreams

Breathless with perseverance

Resolution and persistence my tools

Embracing only the shadow of what had been

once upon... (more)

Lessons Through Pain

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Nov 22, 2013

This tribulation planted

Instilled within my soul

Deeper than deep

Wider than forever

I tried through grace to

Dig it out, leave it shattered

On the path of benevolence

Poisoned with anger

Healed with love

Still swaddled uninvited

Choking my heart beats

OH, MURMURING .....

Leaving me drenched

Cataclysm overflowing

Cascading torrents

A waterfall descending

Plummeting itself

Beyond the abyss

My eyes raining down

Mocking my song

Unsung in this affliction

Too Deep For Tears

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Oct 13, 2013

Come close to the edge of breathe and time

Held safe by the strand of a woven thread of faith...

Faltered on shaky knees yet your footsteps

Strengthened by the spirit witnessing placement ...

Beyond anything of this world

Echoes of an unknown past...

Guided simply by your own "knowing"

Wrapped gently in unconditional acceptance...

Manifesting within what your instinct tells you

Surrendered while leaping off a cliff...

Have you wept out your disappointments

Your sorrows, with mournful groans...

All the while... (more)

God's Promise

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Sep 12, 2013

I am looking for you

Yes, YOU

The person hiding

Behind closed doors

Lost in loneliness

Afraid of life's burdens...

Let me tousle your hair

Making you smile

Gently wiping aside

Your tears flowing

From the cruelness

Life has given you....

Yes, I am looking for you

Standing alone in that place

We all have stood

At times feeling total lose

Betrayal beyond everything

Humanly endured ...

I see you

Alone in the crowd

No one knowing

Or caring to... (more)

Healing Hands

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 23, 2013

...reign of silence and solitude...

Let me knell in veneration

Humbled by the breathe of Him

Who knows my heart...

In this womb of all that was

Meant to be my destiny

Gently touching these memories...

This moon soaked visage

Can not touch or reflect

Adorations of my life....

Held in free inspiration

Within this immaculate nightfall

The breathe of life...

Lifting this to the light

Longing for the bequest

Of eternal grace and tender healing...

Cleansed of all burdens...

Eagerly accepting this gift

Breathing benevolence

Transformed wings of joy

Eternal gratitude given birth to...

Moments of Grace Shining Through Stained Glass

By melanie jean juneau, published on Mar 1, 2013

“Everything is grace”Saint Therese of Lisieux

But how do we receive grace?

Simple. Everything about God is simple and natural. We are the ones in our pride who complicate our relationship to Him. Although Jesus surprised me by suddenly appearing in my life at 16, I tried too hard afterwards to grow in the spiritual life. I read all the complicated books on spirituality and then proceeded to strive and pray circles around myself. Finally exhausted and discouraged, I gave up and Jesus finally had an opening to shine the light of His love into my core self. When the light of... (more)
