another way? ( love in times of conflict)

I choose

to take the lower part,

to bend, to yield,

to pay the cost,

to give,

drawing deep

from wells of grace,

to set the other free,

and, demanding no rights,

to love…


I choose this path,

though some may call me a fool,

I still choose it,

even stooping to the ground

to write fool

in the dirt,

while others shout over my head,

demand their rights,

and cry for wrongs to be recognised,

I choose it…


I choose love,

I choose grace,

the lower way,

I choose the road less traveled….


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...
