There is a hidden treasure that few ever find
It is discovered in your heart not with your mind

Beyond the land of reason to a place where truth lives
Where humility reigns and the offended forgives

Where love is not an act but a simple way of life
Wealthy is the woman whose husband honors his wife

Blessed are the children who grew up in this place
Found understanding and acceptance in their mother's face

She touched the lives of many in her own special way
And touched the heart of GOD whenever she would pray

Death has claimed a victory but what did it win
Though she is gone I know I will see her again

Triumphantly she enters into her final rest
In heaven a hero because on earth she gave her best

Surrounded by loved ones who had gone on before
Heaven is all she had hoped for and so much more

The angels that had walked with her are now sent back
To comfort those who mourn and give to those that lack

My tears often fall like rain from a broken heart
Upon seeds planted long ago let the discovery start

I have the heart of a poet, the eye of an artist, and dress like a bum. I am no one important. No title, no position, no authority. Just a normal person. But I know Jesus. And Jesus knows me. And this relationship has changed my life and continues to change my life. I have no desire to be known but great desire for others to know Jesus. I would like to blog about Jesus, christian living, church, hurting, hope. I do not want to lead this blog but follow it wherever it leads.
