A Beautiful Mess

So….here I am…..my first blog post!  Be patient, it’ll probably take me a while to get the hang of this.  But, check back often.  My goal is to post something new everyday.  It may be a poem, a nugget of truth from the Lord, or a rambling thought.  I look forward to sharing with you.  Please feel free to comment!

This poem was written at church yesterday.  It was inspired by a perfectly horrid morning and a beautiful dress.  Yes, inspiration often comes from weird places.  Hope you enjoy it.

Splotches of color,                                                                                                            Haphazardly strewn.                                                                                                      Incongruent shades,                                                                                                                 Existing side by side,                                                                                                                         Like a field of wildflowers,                                                                                                                   Planted by the hand of God.                                                                                                           Her dress reminds me of our lives.                                                                                               For those of us who are perfectly imperfect                                                                                     But love Him.                                                                                                                                        He takes the good and the bad,                                                                                                          The happy and the sad                                                                                                                    The triumphs and the failures                                                                                                            And creates…                                                                                                                                      A beautiful mess.

Be blessed today and be sure to tell someone that you love them!

About meanderingswithgod

I Write. It’s what I do. It’s as vital a part of me as breathing. I write when I’m happy. I write when I’m sad. I write when I don’t understand. Or when I understand a little too clearly. I write when God’s speaking to me. And when I’m speaking to Him. And, more often than not, it comes out in rhythm and rhyme. In my words, you’ll find laughter and tears, pain and triumph, confusion and clarity. In my words, if you bother to search, you’ll find me. So, it is with both excitement and trepidation that I begin. This blog. This writing that’s been so long coming. My words. God’s words. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to tell the difference. Mine are clumsy, His are eloquent. I hope, as you read my verbal meanderings, that you’ll be blessed and find yourself searching for Him.
