wait….. (pondering ascension)

and then he was gone,

we peered into the sky,

trying to see through the heavens,

but he was gone,

and this time really gone,

no more appearances in locked rooms,

no more breakfasts on the beach,


… he left an instruction of course,

“wait” he’d said, “wait!”

…wait for what????

… “power from on high”, he’d said..

… power, what will that look like,

what will that be like,

and what can we do but wait as instructed,

the roller coaster ride continues,

it’s about 3 years since he called me,

and I followed willingly,

my eyes have seen remarkable tings,

my ears have heard blessings, and teachings, and stories,

I’ve heard him applauded,and lauded

and blamed, and vilified, then crucified…

now we are to wait,

his promised friend,

this inner power,

this higher power is coming,

I don’t know when,

or how,

or even why,

but I will wait,

my life has been turned over,

I expect it might be turned over again!

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...
