Choose To Thrive
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

It is true that Love conquers all   
But not the kind you see on silver screens
The kind that lasts through every trial   
The sort that never fades and never flees
I have seen the vapors left by errant hearts   
And heard the cries of those ripped apart
I've heard the anthem 'I will survive'   
While knowing actually they could thrive
These words sung over and over again   
'I can't live without you' is a lie from dark dens
For though your heart may break in two   
There is a bright hope that you can choose

It does not steal your soul nor torment heart   
It does not need death nor poisonous dart
These lies we hear that revenge is sweet    
Are only sweet toxins giving bitterness license to breed
Do not be deceived my friends and my foes   
Your heart cannot hold these grudges and woes
Forgive your debtors and breakers of hearts    
Purge them instead and feel the weight depart
Let Love enter in and touch all your wounds    
Give Love your heart and give Him room
God who is Love can heal all your hurts    
And He will give more good than any soul deserves

The Welcomed Eavesdropper

The Welcomed Eavesdropper
By:  Adrie’lle R. Bollin

My Lord heard me as I spoke with my friends
We laughed with delight recounting His stories
How He turned things around and brightened our days
We listened in awe to testimonies of His glories

He smiled with us as He leaned in noting our hearts
For they glowed with His love and emanated His grace
As we went home to our families so filled with faith
He did not leave us but stayed with us each at our place

So filled were we that we woke early to seek His face
Wondering at all the possibilities we peered into heavenly realms
We danced with joy in His arms, sang more heartily than before
Carried the light more brightly, kept it shining at our helms

My Lord saw all these things and His heart was greatly moved
For though our lives held challenges and times of great distress
We remembered Him, His promises and all He had done
We chose the better way, we chose to trust, to abide in His rest

So He wrote what He saw in a book and declared 
That we would be His, a precious gem in His crown
Preserved and cherished for all time and for all to know
Saved from wrath that His love might be shown

A Busy Lazy Winter

Forgive my absence my blogging friends, what usually is a season of hibernation and plenty of time to write, has turned into business, distraction and a loss of focus in this area.  I think of you all often and think to myself that I must write again soon!  For now though, I can only offer up nature's beauty as a small gift - as it was a gift to me.  Winter is my least favorite season...ok, ok to be honest, I just plain don't like winter.  HOWEVER, as always, God shows me beauty in every season as often as I am willing to open my eyes and see it.  He gifts me with a beautiful sunrise, a sparkly cloudless morning, and sun shining through the window.  He knows it makes me smile and warms my heart.  He is the greatest giver of all!  I hope you can smile with me as I share it with you. :)
