You watched a tear

Springing from my heart

Joining with the river

Falling down below.

You called my name

I did not reply

Instead You saw my heart

I couldn’t kneel to pray.

You brought me comfort

All I saw was pain

Yet even in my blindness

I saw You smile at me.

Hope came tumbling down

You pulled me out again

Lifting up my heart

Bowing down to You.

You heard my whisper

As I turned my head

Now facing distant scenes

Watching at the gates.

You felt my brokenness

It drove through Your hands

Blood spilling down like rivers

Giving down below.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies ! These include (but aren't limited to) gardening, cooking, making cards, playing piano, singing, writing letters, journalling and walking in nature/ identifying animal species. I find it hard to make time for myself but I'm learning that life is too short and sometimes things must be scheduled in or the days slip away without much change. Family and friends are very important to me and I am happiest when I live my life in community.
