I am taking a short vacation from blogging to spend holiday time with my family. In the meantime, I have set up a few of my more popular posts for you to read. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Redeeming the hour
Of words unspoken
Deeds undone and
Would take a life time of wishes.
If one was a simple soul that is.
To cold hearted clerics
Who hold the words of absolution
In the palm of their hands
And choose to say nothing
Rip the very fabric of our being;
And cause us to question the heart of God himself.
And yet a stronger soul
Emerges from the ashes of wasted words
And needless silence.
Like the phoenix
And are reborn.
Carrying with us
A heart for the unredeemed hours
Of our lives.
We see the hearts
Of the lost and the hurting.
We speak the truths
That were once denied us
To others whose needs are no more
Or no less than our own.
In place of the devils behind
Who left their teeth in our hide
We become the god with skin on
For those who need his touch.
And we tell you the only truth
You need to hear.
God sings over you
Your sins are forgiven
Rest in that knowledge
And forgive those whose own scars
Rendered them silent on your behalf.
You are more than a simple soul
Living on wishes and lies of others.
You are a phoenix
More valuable than silver or gold.
Bought at a price
Redeem the day.
