Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7 (NLT)

Uprooted i was

Replanted by God’s hands

Rooting in Him

Still prickly though

God’s cactus

forest of forgiveness

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

God blows breathes of new life through the leaves

as the winds of change blow through our souls

we are free again

Holy Spirit soars within us

and that mountain is a mole hill again

scars remain but the range of motion is back

we move on

lingering not on what was

praising God for what is and what will be

remembering it’s okay to cry on occasion cause He collects those tears and maybe pours them over those seeds we are sowing

maybe

He hears heavy hearts and lightens them too

He heals heavy hearts and enlivens them too

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

yellow flowers

majority opinion

does not equal

truth

yellow flowers rain down on solemn shoulders

heads bow in prayers of thanks continually – even for enemies

happiness blooms deep inside watered by tears of sorrow giving way to repentance

no regrets

no backwards movement

losses so big the losers could never be the same

Forgiving bomb dropping gas-lighters with grace – then giving them space

God’s job to deal and heal

Guiltlessly reappropriating time to environments that incite growth

yellow flowers fall on solemn shoulders

heads bow in prayer continually-even for enemies

majority opinion

does not equal

truth

Author’s Note: 2 Corinthians 7:10-11

Ch-ooo-oo-oose Up *Adeline voice

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever. -Isaiah 40:8

We are the grass and our faithfulness the flowers…

Left ’em for God cause the love of the Creator who created me is what I needed and wanted

Laughing when they worry about me being out and about “alone”

Cause who is alone?

I’m out with my everything

God

Left ’em for God

Cause I am but grass that withers and I know where I want to spend my forever

Author’s Note: My soul sisters stay sending me songs that hit me in the heart in the most divine timing. Thank you Jesus for the soul sisters. *Laughs and runs it back a third time
