New Wine Time

The pressing is releasing the pouring.
The receiving is transforming,
removing illusions of opposition.

The shift is shifting.

Feeling becomes seeing which is heard.
Hearing becomes that which is seen.
The wisdom to understand is quickened.

Divergences are converging;
Leveling up, stepping in, merging,
as we become aware of our innate qualities.

What has held us back is broken.
The breakthrough is followed through,
and paths created are widened by wisdom.

Division is relinquished in exchange for unity.
The journey is renewed through love.
Forgiveness is ageless and must be
walked out together.

The prodigals are returning and must be welcomed.

The elderly and the frail still need to
push and inspire,
in wisdom,
and must be included.

The middle know when to push and
when to pull,
through wisdom,
and must be heard.

The youth shall be protected as they
pull and inspire,
because of wisdom,
and must be nurtured.

Unity is achieved through the altruistic love of God.

None can be left out, for their contributions are worthy and necessary.
Listen to and nurture each other…
“Feed my sheep.”

~ Rhonda Logan Bailey, poet and artist

The Example of Mary

The Example of Mary

Mary, mother of Jesus. Sometimes I’m just not sure what my attitude toward her should be. As I wrestled with this recently, my question to the Lord was, “How do You view her?” His response pointed me to the annunciation—the angel’s pronouncement to Mary that she would...
