the truth is

that some days I am barely holding on,

but you don’t want to hear that,

nobody wants to hear that….

we need one another to be “fine”

or at least strong,

to cope,

to get along,

to hide our insecurities

behind a smiling mask,

or a stoic face,

to plunge through these

overwhelming days

of light and laughter,

blinking back our tears,

holding in our sighs….


I wonder what would happen,

if I told you my truth?

if I let tears fall,

if I let out a sigh,

a groan…

if I told you I was overwhelmed,

so overwhelmed….


I wonder…


was it for this moment,

this truth,

that Christ came,

that still Christ comes?

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

( Matthew 11: 28-30)

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 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...
