      Beyond imagination.......


Rest your head, close your eyes,
hear, feel, taste each beat of your heart.
Earthbound sounds are moved aside,
knowing God will never forsake, part.

Mystifying events begin taking hold,
at last feeling lighter than ever before.
Mind set free, to open up, come alive,
slowly, surely you begin to soar.

Set your soul free, soaring higher and higher,
reaching beyond the stars, the milky way.
Remember all past dreams and wishes,
second star to the right, here to stay.

Heavenly greetings beyond imagination,
a place free of heartache and pain.
A haven rich with dreams come true ,
where the sun brightly shines, no rain.

Deeply inhale, set yourself free,
spread your arms wide like angel wings.
Partake in all the endless joy,
drink until drunk from all good things.

Shake off the old, the baggage, the worn,
embracing the love that surrounds you.
Time is so short, no time for sadness,
no time for anger or what makes you blue.

Allow the good grace of God within,
feel his power, his glory, his eternal love.
Inhale it, embrace it, encompass it all,
into every cell, every pore, till it fits like a glove.

Can you feel it growing stronger inside,
each minute, each hour, each passing moment.
The brightest light you will ever know,
envelopes your being, erasing the torment.

Rest your head, close your eyes,
hear, feel, taste each beat of your heart.
Earthbound sounds are moved aside,
knowing God will never forsake, part.

You take us by the shoulders and gently, lovingly shake us awake in this write, Karen. Why is it we constantly need reminders of the miracle which is ours? This is how children see the world and this is the source of their spring of joy. Beautiful!

Your words and picture are a perfect match, Karen. Such restorative exhortations uttered here with the conviction yet gentleness of a quickening summer breeze. Gentle yet filled with a compelling grace and wisdom that wills the enfeebled spirit to arise and take heart. Bless you, Kate xx
