    HE loved me today as I climbed upon HIS wheel
    A dry formation of clay that lost its moisture during
    My walk through life pouring into others and yet I,
    Not being poured into discovered my emptiness;

    I shivered at HIS touch that raced through my life
    Reaching within me to find the blemishes and cracks
    From constant drops on the ground and dipping HIS
    Hand into the libation of life to smooth out the edges;

    I felt fear but not from Him but from the thought
    That today the things that bound me in misery
    Would be removed by the gently movement
    of HIS hand over the spaces bruised by time;

    A steady spin upon HIS wheel and the moments
    Of time marred by wrong steps and bad judgement
    Are now places of lessons learned and testimonies
    Bringing balance to the once lopsided pottery;

    And now, I am ready for the fire, the time when
    All that is left of yesterday, all of the thoughts of
    “I can’t”, all the thoughts of unworthiness will be
    burnt away by the ever-increasing heat of grace;

    HE Loved me today as He loved me yesterday when
    He sent a perfect vessel lacking blemish or scar, to
    stretch HIS arms wide, have HIS shell pierced to release
    HIS sweet fragrance upon the dry clay HE formed into me.
