2.  The Mercy you give

The Mercy you give, says the Teacher,
is the Mercy
you get…
but as I sit bathed in Mercy’s flow
with the scales tipped Gracefully in my favor
a realization awakens as to
how much I have been given and
how notably I am
lacking


***

3.  Lord, tip me

surely I seek stability
for when overfull
I am known to
start leaking

but how, the Spirit asks,
can I pour out of you
unless you give me
the handle

Beautiful...
Heart hugs coming your way~

To have lived the dream of a love so true...
   is to have seen a glimpse of heaven.

These prayers are beautiful...
Ones I think I need to say more.
Seems it's easy to forget just what we have sometimes, even when most seems lost.
Thank you for these...

Always, Alyssa

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
