Spirit energy

I want to paint something I've never painted before.
I want to make bold brush strokes up against the meandering vulnerable line of charcoal.
I want to make scribble marks from my 3 year old self.
I long to listen and welcome fear only to squash it by pushing forward.
I want to show up every day.
I long to work and muddle and mess it up...only to bear witness to miracles. To discovery.
Embracing fear...kissing it on the cheek goodbye.

There is aliveness in moving paint.
There is awakening and spirit energy.
Dancing together with color.
Creativity overcomes.
It brings light where there was only darkness.
Rainbow reflections in water.
A simple morning
Fleeting but sweet

Truth has a name

Truth has a name

His Sovereign hands light my journey
This darkness of life, I no longer have to fear

His voice is heard. I the sheep. He the Shepard.
He speaks to me in dreams.
Somewhere in the thin air of sleep and awake-ness the spirit energy is alive
I reach for the words, the images, the closeness
I long to write. I long to paint.

Because of Truth.....
my freedom energy lies still in the grass, Face upturned to the One who sent me.
He knows my name.
He creates in me, Peace.
He creates in me, creativity.
He creates in me, Love.
He creates in me, Hope.
He creates in me, Freedom.

Truth has a name. And his name is Jesus.
For this Truth, I live.
For this Truth, I glorify.
For this Truth, I become more me.
For this Truth, I give.
For this Truth, is the reason I will never truly die.
