Inspired by conversations with Suzanne today, on this particular morning, I am thankful for everyone who has graced this existence with love, joy and hope…and who continue to inspire.
Oh Blessed Mary, mother of my Lord who whispers,
“Surrender to Love and be changed”
You could I not see and
Struggled in vain, against Thee.
Yet in my search was I shown
An emerald heart upon Thy throne.
No earthly gems will ever satisfy this
Longing inside my soul to fly…into
Your breath breathing me
Within the walls of
This mortal body…a new life
Paradise eternal; when I close my eyes
You are with me—and I realize—
I am surrendered. I am changed.
With love and gratitude,
