Shortstop

We sing in unison, then settle in to “Play ball”   He turns and squats before Her, he bows his head and prays   “Help me”, he asks silently, “I beg you, keep me whole.”   Ready, he springs to his feet, filled with Her mercy   He plays with abandon on his toes   […]

Practical

Nothing is more practical than Faith. All is less practical than finding God. Nothing is more practical than Love. All is less practical than losing me.

Fierce

She is above the law and does not wear a badge. she is beyond the rule and does not need a shield. With wide open eyes, she mocks blind justice. With wide open arms, she gives peace and mercy. Without empty threats, she feels my pain with me. Without leaving a scar, she uses a […]
