WHO AM I?

 

THE SINGLE CONSECRATED LIFE: S. C. L.

 AND

THE SOCIETY OF THE SACRED CROSS: S. S. C.

  


EASTER GARDEN


When walking in my garden

I often can recall

The gardens in the Bible

And stories of them all.


The first Garden was Eden

For Adam and Eve to be,

Happy pure and innocent,

At peace and safe and free.


But through their disobedience,

God had to cast them out,

To pain and toil and hardship,

And dangers all about.


Then there was Gethsemane

Where Jesus used to pray,

Until that Maundy Thursday

When he was dragged away.


Then there's that other garden,

Where Jesus body lay,

Until that Easter Morning

His Resurrection Day.


In Eden's lovely Garden

Eternal life was lost

Because of disobedience

Death was the awful cost.


Jesus in Gethsemane,

Did as His Father willed

And let Himself be taken,

To pain and to be killed.


The Resurrection Garden,

Gave back Eternity

For Jesus' obedience

From death has set us free!


Now in the world, God's garden,

He has a place now for me,

To follow Jesus' example,

 In faith, obediently.






What will 2019 hold for me?

I wrote this prayer poem when on an Advent Retreat in 2018.


HERE AM I LORD

PRAYER POEM 2018


Here I am Lord, come to me

Let me be still and simply be.


Let my busy mind be still,

Focused only on Your will,


Emptied of the selfish I

To pride and anger let me die.


When I'm afraid and want to know.

The ifs and buts and why it's so


And what the future holds for me

And what I'm going on to be,


Just whisper, “That's not for you to know,

Trust in Me and let it go!”


And flood me with Your healing peace

That stays with me and does not cease,


And I will close my eyes in prayer

Content to know that You are there.


In the silence I am free,

And thank You Lord, for loving me!
