Christmas adverts cry out peace,

peace, love, contentment,


trees sparkle,

hearts warm,

songs are sung,

over and over…

but an icy wind is blowing,

war, bombs, war,

compassion is limited,

love is boundaried,

joy is fleeting,

hope darkens…

and we pray,

we kneel and pray…

Lord have mercy,

Lord have mercy,

Christ have mercy…

hear the cry of broken hearts…

Lord have mercy…

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...
