Welcome to Renaissance Woman and the first post of 2023!
I will be continuing my study of Isaiah 45:7 in the upcoming weeks but, for today, I am sharing a poem. This poem is inspired by one of my all time favorites: [i carry your heart with me (i carry it in] by E.E. Cummings. You can read it here.
Resolution My Love, we've counted down another year As years are measured by the clock Time has come to remember and Spend a moment taking stock Of where we've been and where we are How far we've come and have yet to go To make a brand-new resolution Though what may come I cannot know. My Love, we've ascended heights Far above all I could have dreamt But lows there have been as well Traversing them left me spent You, My Love, were always with me You led, You guided, sustained, upheld I must admit-as I look back- There's been no good thing You've withheld. My Love, I look to this new year One resolution only can there be And that is to not resolve at all Because I do not know-I cannot see No resolution-I choose Your rest For I do know this one thing is true Day by day, age to age, You bring me deeper into You. The wonder is we are never apart I am carried in Your heart-I carry You in my heart.
