Just For Me

I am loved

just for me

I am not

who they expected me to be

but I found

my chosen family

and they love me

just for me.

This is my last post on Sophia’s Voice.  I have enjoyed it immensely.  Thank you all for the follows and likes. You are a part of my chosen family.

God bless. (Love you, Sophie!)

I have always loved this poem. Thanks for posting.

It Started with a Quote

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

No Weapon

No weapon formed against us shall prosper.

Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the word “weapon” as being “something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy. 2. : a means of contending against another.”

Believe the people of the world can love one another, and that no weapon is stronger than the power of love.

God knows what’s going on.

No weapon formed against the mercy and grace that our Loving Father has for us will prosper.

Perchance I Could Take Heed, Not

Perchance I could take heed, not

But ask a question;

Knowing that in not asking

Is the telling,

But seeming a bit too forward

Pushy, yes;

I still lay claim to make

This one request.

 

One shall not know

Until one asks

And yet in asking,

Perpetuate a certain

Self-interest, which

If answered in the affirmative

Still leaves me feeling

Wanting for another’s cause

Unsure if my assertive front

May bear another’s loss.

Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life

Man + Woman = Confusion?

There are few issues so hotly debated in today’s society as the roles of men and women toward each other and in society. The arguments range all the way from those who maintain that man is created to rule and woman to serve, to those who maintain that there are no significant differences between men and women besides the physical differences required for human reproduction. In other words, we humans are mightily confused about the roles of women and men!

Traditionalists in the largely Christian parts of the world often point to the Bible in support of their view that man is meant to be in charge and woman is meant to serve man. But a look at how men and women were first created tells a slightly different story!

In many ways, the roles of men and women have not changed all that much…

You of the Hasty Amygdala, Awaken!

Wake up the Prefrontal Cortex!

You, stewing in the ambiguous amygdala

with all it’s fire trucks

hoses and masks

it’s horse-drawn carriage of a bygone era

Wait just a little bit,

let the hippo send it through

let it rest in the PFC

before gut reactions

pump cortisol into the pistons

of your unified generator

that reads and writes your whole body’s nerves

and hinges on faulty wiring

from hasty firing
