“Love Walking Forward”, from L.Willows (Mercy, The Brokenhearted, See God)

There are some walking, with footsteps unheard
In the distance a softness, a rumbling from behind
Shuffling in silence beyond what is seen
Hearts have been broken, times have been lean.

Off in the background, far from the front
Back in the distance, they seem restrained.
These are the hearts, they- do not cry fail
Suffering they silence from times in life’s assail.

Can we love these hearts – full round found and brought forth
Bind them together with prayers in love’s girth.
Bring to the fore with mercy’s attend,
We bear your love for, the ones at the end.

Times in such seeking brings lives in full reaping
found in a circle that tenders and keeps
all in our Hearts, belonging- we run…
love walking forward, we gather as one.

Psalm 50:21
These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

“Love’s Gift, Life’s Thread”, from L.Willows

Albert Bierstadt1
Love’s Gifts, Life’s Thread

Where heroes walk the sunlight tilts
casting light upon streams pew.
Mountains break with peaks to view
upland, view – new clouds light built.

Hark, my soul can hear a call
like trumpet far that lulls the air.
Sweetened soar flies through like a dare,
God’s arrow in all might’s recall.

Where heroes walk the sunlight drifts,
lifetimes rainbow, blessings shed.
And In the shadow of such tread,
hearts long to bring love’s gifts, life’s thread.

Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

2 Corinthian 4:17-18
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.a

2 Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.
