    we’re impatient
    self-absorbed
    vessels of clay
    with the audacity
    to sometimes
    question the handiwork
    of the Potter
    even second-guessing
    His purpose for our
    use…
    many times
    head strong,
    going headlong into
    darkness…blinded
    by our desires
    forgetting that our
    every need has always
    been supplied
    we go off, in our haste
    impatient, erring
    children
    bound for a destination
    unknown
    working it out on our own
    ignorant/disobedient, we
    even think we
    right
    when we just
    dead wrong
    take on too much
    in the rush
    and under the pressure
    we break
    but gently,
    piece by piece
    we are restored to
    our original beauty
    for Love’s sake
    by the loving Hands
    by our Lord and Savior
    who always comes through
    in spite of our behavior

    In spite of it ALL

    my wrong doings...bad judgement calls...disobedience...impatience...lack of faith(sometimes)...HE's ALWAYS there to repair me when I've been broken.

    He just saved me...

    Again.

    Alyce...I needed this word today.

    Thank you
    :heart:

    Excellent!

    This flows with strength and imagination--of course you know where I stand regarding the suubject matter--but because I have a different stance does not mean that I can't enjoy a smooth and heart felt flow--it is well done and you speak well for others--quite moving--Ra

    :cool:
