“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
Read & Reflect.
I have read this verse many times & didn’t really understand it’s true meaning until just a few days ago. Upon my sudden enlightenment, I felt inspired to create a place of refuge, an outlet, where poems from the heart can come to life and possibly help another human being.
Poetry has always been a place of safety for me. I don’t always have the words in the moment to express myself, or, the courage…let’s be honest. I needed a place to put it all out there. Form my thoughts into words and my words into something that catapulted me through this life, and eventually DID give me courage. The courage to keep going, one day at a time; one situation at a time.
One hurt at a time.
