Words_Freedom, Forgiveness

Thank you to our kitchen clock for being 20 minutes fast or we would have never made it to church on time today. Thank you Jesus for a beautiful September walk, pumpkin spice creamer to my coffee, and new friends and neighbors. Thank you Epic Church for being exactly what I need to feel, hear, be. Thank you for reminding me to be quiet, to listen, and most importantly, that I am free. I am forgiven. We hold ourselves captive in our own prisons when the door to freedom is unlocked the entire time. We just have to make the decision to walk through it. Thank you to my husband who keeps me accountable to my actions and loves me in my darkest moments.

I am forgiven.

I am free.

A morning hello
To my lifetime beside me
Inhaling the September air that rounds each corner 
Coating my senses
Uprooting decades past
Against the backdrop of trees in unison
Bending to a commanding wind
That with one touch
Silently speaks
Resurrects and pioneers
Comforts and weakens
Forgives and strikes
Everything behind me 
And the landscape beyond
