Hearts

Poetry

When my feelings are blinding me

And I can’t see the truth

I’ll choose to trust in You

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

-Jeremiah 17:9

The Shore

Poetry

The waves come up to shore with promise

Yet fade back with the tide

Reality surfaces, hopes then plummet

Revealing all I wish to hide

Heart be still and patient

Be willing to learn and grow

Watch the waves, ride gently

Embracing their ebb and flow
