knowing I am known

I come,

expecting judgement,

my knees tremble,

and my heart beats

wildly, as I quake

and tremble within,

I have come,


for my need is great,

I bring doubts and fears,

and carry self-condemnation

as a millstone

round my neck,

I come for I have nowhere

else to go…


but what miracle is this,

I am circled and enfolded,

by loves desire to love

that will not let me go…


yes, it was love that drew me here




My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.

(1 John 3: 19-20)

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
