Daily By The Bedside(A Lenten Reflection)

I sat.....wide-gazed..
Life's possibilities....
Not without the Cross

Pinning me to earth notwithstanding
The joys, happiness
That must have been mine

This and that would have made life unbearable
If not for embracing the Cross
Befallen yet whole in spirit

Daily by the bedside
Immortalized by the man on the Cross
Nailed, crowned and crushed to death

Daily by the bedside
i die from sin, mistakes
Over acts only by your Cross
Was redeemed

I am always reminded of Christopher Robin kneeling in prayer when I read the words 'by the bedside' and some of the innocence and beauty of this imaginary boy comes across in your humbly penned lines of reflection and supplication. Although prayer has never been my choice of spiritual expression, I nonetheless understand perfectly where this piece is coming from. There are many doors into love and compassion. You have opened yours with grace. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
