only love…

this bitter gall

is eating away

my belly

 souring my breath

blackening my heart

poisoning my speech,

and while it is flowing

deep and strong,

I want none

of it….

I long instead for

clean cool

healing waters,

the sweetness

of a living stream

the balm of

kindness

and forgiveness…

yet I hold back…

for I know that

living water is no gentle stream,

it will rush in purging,

purifying,

overflowing,

overwhelming,

if I stand in its path

it will knock me from my feet

and carry me away…

take me to a new place

demand all of me,

no bitterness,

no gall

only love….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
