Father of Mercy

Friend of Sinners

Spirit whispers


Spirit illuminates


Centers our vision



Power given

To us

Via the Way

Of the cross

God the Father

God the Son

God the Spirit

Oh Holy One

Great is the Mystery

Of the glorious Trinity

Strength in Power

And unity

Father of mercy

Friend of sinners

The Spirit whispers

New Life

In some ways my life began on my 16th birthday.

This was the day I was released from care.

I did not know where I was going.

"Am I going to a place where girls go who have no family?"

The matron looked at me blankly.

A friend gifted me a pair of white saddle shoes

I took the ugly black shoes and put them

under my bed.

I was leaving my old life behind

Along with the shoes

My heart was racing in anticipation

I filled two garbage bags with my meager belongings

I had no money

I had no idea of where I was going

I did not care.

Jesus my Savior would look after me

He always had and he always would

I was free

I had been released!

June Smith/ an excerpt from In His Grip

The snare has been broken

And we have escaped

Psalm 124
