Who I Am



















A small town
With a big night sky.
Majestic Godly lights
Sprinkle the sky
And sometimes fly

Quiet
Quaint
Almost hidden

Twists
Turns
Bumps and Bruises
All okay
At the end of the day

Memories treasured
Wrapped with love
Sealed with HIS hand
Held in HIS heart
From heaven above

At the end of the day
A piece of my heart
Found deep in the ground
In several spots
Sprinkled around

Wherever I go
Wherever I am
Illegitimate, ragamuffin child
Can still be found
It's very simply
Who I am

By HIS mercy and in the very grip of HIS grace,
Andrea

I love the art and cadence of your poetry, Andrea. But I don't see you as an illegitimate, ragamuffin child. I see you as a princess. And so does the King.

What a lovely writing, Andrea. But you are not a ragamuffin, but a child of the King!

Daughter of The Righteous King! You are a creative writer revealing the legitimacy and princess that you truly are, even before you were formed in your mother's womb! Beautifully his, Teresa

These lines are poetry in every sense of the word. I really like the "word picture" here - and I think it captures what Jesus does with a person who is yielded and willing..."except a seed dies..."
John 12:24.

I love the imagery that your poem creates Andrea. It's easy to feel like an insignificant ragamuffin in the splendor of nature. But just as pollution dirties our surroundings, sin has dirtied us. Thanks be to God for providing us our Savior, Jesus Christ who makes us pure and clean in our Father's eyes!

*I don't get to visit many blogs anymore and am even having trouble finding time to post my own! Thank you for the award you gave to Chester and I the other week-I appreciate it! I pray that God continues to bless you and your family.

Dear Andrea, I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog---it was such an encouragement to my heart... and here, you have become a double blessing! What a heartfelt poem-- thank you for sharing this with us. Sometimes it's hard to put into words how we feel; however, the Lord has blessed you with the gift of expressing your heart in a vivid way that paints a beautiful picture!! Thank you for ministering through the Holy Spirit to us. PS...I hope your hubby had a wonderful b-day. I "left my 30's behind" on that day and embarked on a journey into my 40's on March 1. (I never realized how fast the big 4-0 would arrive.) LOL
Hugs
