A Blogger’s Confession
I’ve been writing forever (well, sometimes I exaggerate) and I can’t seem to get much response.
Just trying to share the hope we have in Jesus. Am I boring? Am I antiquated? Do my verses not rhyme?
Honestly, do I need more color?
Am I not loud enough?
I am so serious! I wanna tell the world about my Savior.
ANY and ALL comments and suggestions are welcome.

The Gift of Letting Go
she clung to her hurts
with all her might
her arms wrapped around them
she clung so tight
nursing them, rehearsing them
to all who would listen
the peace and the joy were missing
then, with trembling heart and hands
she raised both in the air
surrendering her entire life
to the God who’s always there
the burdens she once carried
had vanished, they were all gone
at once discovering in their place
a melody, a song
♫ I surrender all,
I surrender all;
All to Thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.
