DEAR GOD 5

Dear God

I walked down the path To visit You in the garden Where You and I Became friends

But the road was much longer Than I remembered The pathway snarled and Darkened, I stumbled

I called out but There was no answer Just an echo of the past Silence

I came upon our garden And found it perishing You were not there But contenders filled Your space

They blocked my way And surrounded me as comrades As if they knew me Friends by association

Peering closely thru the gloom Faces, one by one revealed I recognized them My heart frozen, confused

Why are you here, in my garden Because you brought us here Was the gleeful reply With cheers all around

My mind raced Through memories Marking off choices Made through the years

The leader stepped out Santa Claus was his name Good will and gentleness Was his game

You embraced us in your spirit Integrating us into your life Inviting us in, to live and Steal the hearts of your children

And I bowed my head In shame For I knew He spoke the truth

Little by little Santa, Halloween, Easter And many more worldly icons Had found a place in my life

Innocent things I so believed Until now, when My true love cannot be found

All these possessions That filled the place That My Father did Until

There was no more room For Him In the Inn And in our garden

My forgotten garden Left for wild seeds To grow unattended Smothering eternity

How could I have Abandoned You And, yet I did For the love of the world

So subtle, so clever The magnitude of evil That I have suffered Your loss And didn't even know it

But, Mercy and Grace Gather around me Perforating my soul with The winds of knowledge

Pressing me to return Because You are my God My matrix of Light and Love To deliver me

From time without Light To restore our Private communion And love affair

Return me O Father To the ancient way Forgive my deviation from You and Restore Yourself to our garden

Then He whispers Remember That evil always begins With a kiss...

About just stevie

First and foremost...I am not a writer! That is very evident if you start from the beginning. These blogs are the result of an intense relationship with my heavenly Father and I wanted to put my thoughts into writing. Words and music are very powerful...together...each having it's own interpretation! This encourages me that every day be different, with new thoughts and directions. Even now, that surprises me when I go back and re-read an experience I've gone thru. I think I can say, that my writing has improved with time...enjoy...
