Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

Crumpled, broken body
Marked with lines swollen and red.
The spirit alive and anxiously waiting,
The body ready to collapse as dead.

Iron piercing fair, soft flesh;
Scarlet dripping from the wound.
A cry of pain from his naked breast;
The lyres of victory in Heaven are tuned

The tree is erected,
His body is limp.
Innocent blood.
This man was no wimp.

Love in essence,
That's what it is
To die for men
Not worthy of love like his.

Thank you Lord,
You set me free.
The veil was torn, the battle won,
At that moment of Calvary.
