I Want to Remember

sweet life marvia davidsonI want to remember Jesus the Christ
Blood and water trickling down
Hands and side intimately pierced
I want to remember His body broken
Riddled with pain for me

I want to remember the fragrance
Of His death because
It gave me sweetness of life

I want to remember His Word
Coursing through my veins
Fleshing out deep truth
Penetrating the root of my dark

Pulling me into His
Embrace of healing light

I want to remember His last breath
A heaving sigh resting on the earth
Between the veil
Torn
Ripping
Breaking the chasm’s divide

I want to remember Jesus the Christ
A gift of redemption, of restoration
Of reconciliation

I, no longer on the outside
I, now invited
I, now belonging
I, now adopted
I, now ardently loved

I want to remember Jesus the Christ
I will give Him all of my life
This will be grace enough
More than enough

Love Letter to Creative Souls

Bloom
All these blossoms
All these stems
All these blades
Were made to bloom
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What if being a whole and authentic creative soul meant remembering who you always are?  Would you still create?  Would you still write?  Would you revel in the thought, or would you be stilted, crushed, or even immobilized?  Sister, it’s okay.  We’ll walk together on this journey.  Being a real and true creative soul means embracing the whole of your story, and we want all of you to shine.  How can that divine light in you shine bright and undimmed, if you’re hiding or switching the lights off?

Today I’m over at The Story Sessions with a love letter to creative souls.  Come take a read, and be encouraged.  Perhaps you might find something of the return to being fully you, fully whole, and fully aware that you carry beauty and hope.  It’s what the world needs more of right now – people who love and are real and true.

We {Real Talk Tuesday}

hold hands m davidson 2014I am me.  You are you.  Together we’re stronger.  It’s true.

But really!  There is power in the “we”.  I am a conservative person, reserved, and very guarded.  I don’t always easily trust people.  I wait till I can trust them before I share the realities of living in the right-now life.  I’m okay with that.  It’s part of my process, but living in community, whether online or in real life, calls for intentional connection person-to-person.   Continue reading

A Soft Place to Land {Five Minute Friday}

I wish for a soft place to land
A home in which embrace is common
And despair is driven to the ground
With the stake of hope

I wish for open arms welcoming
The whole of this human essence
Whimsical, musical, ardent, passionate
And sometimes afraid.
