    After my Father
    woke me up this morning
    I took my shower and
    found myself
    blessed by the
    stream of the water

    per
    ....vad
    .........ing

    OVER ME

    blessed by this

    element~
    in the name of the
    Holy Spirit~

    cleasning

    ME

    feeling
    ........finding

    FREE

    as I...
    sing along
    rock~
    and
    praise~
    God
    standing in
    my nakedness...

    "Love...a word that comes and goes
    but few people Really know
    what it means to Really
    Love some-body
    ooohhh love
    though the tears may fade away
    I'm so glad your love will stay
    cause I LOVE YOU
    and you've shown me...
    JESUS...
    what it Really means
    to LOVE"

    As I begin to cry
    baptizing my eyes
    outstretched arms
    reaching towards the skies I

    continue...

    "ooohhhhh
    the nights that I cried
    YOU LOVED ME~
    when I SHOULD'VE DIED
    YOU LOVED ME~
    I'LL NEVER know WHY
    YOU LOVE ME~
    it's a MYSTERY TO ME
    now I'm glad to see
    JESUS
    when ALL HOPE was GONE
    YOU LOVED ME~
    YOU gave me a SONG that
    YOU LOVED ME~
    NOW I CAN GO ON CAUSE
    YOU LOVE ME..."

    this...

    Morning Baptism

    opening up my heart and mind

    my life is right on time
    God's time
    where I'm supposed to be
    spiritually
    yet...
    being baptized to
    another level
    internally~
    externally~

    I just want to thank God for this

    Morning's Baptism

    Thank you for my life's experiences
    thank you for the love the...
    undying~
    unconditional~
    love that you have for me

    I pray that with this baptism comes a light
    a light that shines so bright within me that
    people will be drawn to me and be touched by
    the spirit that dwells within me whether through
    conversation~
    my smile~
    my eyes~ (they tend to say alot)
    dance~
    or poetry~

    I love my Lord and Savior and I know
    HE LOVES ME TOO!


    *this is real, today...this morning
    I had my own personal*

    Morning Baptism

    The most difficult one for me...patient love. I must say that I've improved greatly. The proof? I'm (temporarily) residing with my mom (at a time when she probably needs it-even if she never admits it)!

    "I've got JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY
    JOY in the HOLY GHOST!!!"

    gyrl you got me singing!!:)

    Ma sistah...thank you for your poetic reply. People say I don't have much to offer. This may be true, maybe not. All I know is that if I can be a blessing to someone else through my testimony...my life experiences no matter how gruesome, then I feel like I have accomplished something good. I pray that God would be pleased.
