On this day between days

I pause…

Given a chance to reflect

I choose not to make myself,

Or anyone else

False promises.

I choose not to set

Unrealistic goals.


Instead, I choose life

Having to acknowledge

That I am unsure

What I mean by that,

So perhaps I am choosing

To give myself to the unfolding

Of this moment by moment existence,

Not striving for what might be…


I am choosing not to be


With either my own demands,

Nor the demands of the culture that

Constantly shifts in its definition of what is,

Or what is not acceptable…


I choose love,

Knowing that I have only paddled

In the shallows,

But longing to strike out into the deep…


I choose these things

Awake to the inevitability

That I will fall and fail in them,

But trusting that I am

Held in the shelter

Of a greater power,

Who I know so little of,

But who knows me completely…


In this I rest,

All will be well,

All will be well….


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...
