Where Love knows me by name...

To wander the depths of perfect understanding
to explore the furthest regions of unending grace
to drink from the purifying rivers of mercy
to fly upon the fearless wings of hope,
to run free among the wildness of passion
to dive to the very depths of joy untold
to live in the freedom of acceptance
to find confidence and peace in one’s own soul…

Oh, how I have yearned for such a haven
for a world where such things can come to pass;
Oh, how I’ve ached to gain such meaning
in a life I know can never last…

So I reach into the depths of Your Spirit
I reach beyond what the human eye can see,
I reach into the depths of Your love, Lord,
and into the very depths of eternity…

*

To walk out of the depths of depression
to run far from the grip of fear
to rise above heartache and find happiness
to break free of chains that bind,
to dance in the darkness once threatening
to laugh in the face of that which once tried to destroy
I find strength in Your presence, Lord
and in Your arms, I find comfort and joy…

Yes, I know with all my heart now
in You I find all that I am yearning for;
Nothing else in this world can complete me
Nothing else can bless me more…

I have found heaven inside me
which I can access freely every day;
so I run into the depths of Your presence, Lord
to where Love knows me by name…

I take photos. I write. I sing & dance. Ok, I DON’T sing & dance. Not in public, anyway; & usually 2 my own beat. But I have fun, & that makes life a little more tolerable -for me. Maybe not 4 my kids. But, hey, if they can’t laugh at their mum then they’re probably the only ones who aren’t. So turn up the music & let’s boogie! (Do they still boogie these days? Gosh, I’m getting old. Best be careful not 2 throw a hip while throwing a leg!)

    WOW, what a very moving write.. This definately moved me, and it probably moves others as they come pass and read this. This part “I have found heaven inside me, which I can access freely every day; so I run into the depths of Your presence, Lord, to where Love knows me by name” It just melts my heart, because He is love and He knows us all by name and He is inside of each one of us and we dont need to wait til we die to see heaven, cause its here right now INSIDE each of us, and that is just amazing.. WE dont need to search HIGH or LOW just inside.. LOVE YOU xxx
