In a matter of days three world renowned deaths,
One sticks out in mind
Execution by hanging-seemingly a thought-a threat proclaimed against a fearless dictator
Seconds dwindled into fate and the pages of your life read, “The End”
I wonder, although your face was calm, what was in your mind?
You declined a mask to cover you, as you welcomed eternity,
Appearing ready and expecting to hear, “Well done” as you closed your eyes and breathed for the last time
Who were the men who prepared your body to take its eternal plunge? And what beats at their hearts this night? (Which in their time is really day)
This I wonder as I lay my head to sleep and they rise from slumber…
Vengeance is God’s, is He pleased?
Is God Pleased?
Layers and layers of people we encounter moment by moment, Oh, for the secret thoughts and battles of the mind to be revealed. . .
The real you, the real me padded and primmed, tucked and trimmed; gently covered like knees under church doilies, clasped like staunch prayer fingers aiding in the request for deliverance from condemned temptations, but, “The Lord looketh at the heart”…
As a woman who is passionate about life and pensive about many things and has varying interests and subject matters, you will find that my blog site will feature different ideas. I hope that you will find a laugh, a smile, an encouraging word mixed with some enlightenment as you take the time to read what passes through my mind and often lingers in my heart.
Random things about me: I love reading and learning about different matters and topics. I google almost anything. I believe that love does conquer all. I am a product of the belief that, “A kind word can really go a long way”. I own a Nook and I love it because it’s like my own portable library. I’m a happy newlywed and new mom. I love my family and am extremely grateful, and I try to show my appreciation to the best of my ability.
(AND) I am pretty forward when it comes to speaking my mind and at times I add some cushion to what I say. I also am aware that I am a work in progress and I have a long way to go. I love people. I adore people who are generous enough to call me their friend. My heart bleeds for young women, especially those who have issues with self-esteem. I have a growing love for community outreach and I am currently working on enhancing this desire.
There are many other thing that I can say about myself, but I will end with this, Jesus is the center of who I am and I am not ashamed to state that fact. This is a big step for me, and I am excited about finally taking the time to commit to writing this blog. What I will write may not always be interesting, nor politically correct and may even challenge the lines of what someone like me ‘should’ say… AND I cannot promise that it will be free from typos and grammatical errors, but I guarantee it will be sincere. I do expect that as time goes on, I will become better and better is what I look forward to. Feel free to comment and subscribe. -Madison5thave
