Be Authentic

Be authentic
Unique within our own skin
Comfortable within ourselves
Who and where we are now.
 
Be authentic
True to your own person
Following our own path
Our calling, our purpose.
 
Be authentic
Not chasing after others
For we all have been calling
To our own paths.

Embrace your Uniqueness – v2

Embrace your uniqueness
Your gifts and talents;
Live into your calling,
Your purpose for God.
 
Draw closer to Him
Run toward your own purpose;
Cleave to the Spirit,
The whisper of God within.

onto the #beach – v2


walking onto the beach
that moment of anticipation
crossing the plane of the dunes,
the sand, the swaying grasses
 
sensing the waves, the water,
before I even hear them
drawn to each sunrise
to our place of peace

returning home - 3






watching her steps before sunrise
crossing the plane of the dunes
stepping out onto the sand
as she was returning home.
 
walking with her toward the water
in anticipation, looking to the sky,
the orange ball rising,
all was right in our world…

under the cover of darkness - v3


flying under the cover of darkness
like a military invasion, stealthy,
everything outside the streetlights,
swallowed up by the inky blackness,
a great thick curtain falling down.
 
our driving more like crawling, silently,
in rough earthen subterranean bunkers
following the faintest of trails,
bomb bursts of the lightening
illuminating the jet-black air.
