stands me exposed,

and I long to clothe


in the approval

of those whose

affirmations gives me

a mask

to present to the world,

so I look for favour

rather than looking within

where I will encounter

my smallness

and my potential

in equal measure….


I know

I am called

to hold them in tension,

to offer them as gift,

but now they both seem

too fragile

to stand,

so instead I hide….



yet long for

the light!



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...
