Do not take anything for granted — not one smile or one person or one rainbow or one breath, or one night in your cozy bed. 
     ~Terri Guillemets
 
My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.
     ~ Colossians 2:6-7
 
Like a child playing dress up
I stumble on the hem,
trip in the too big heels.
The hat nearly covers my face,
jewels weigh more than I.
 
I just had to wait, to grow
into You, feel my roots
soaking up all that living water,
and walk, singing, with wet feet.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
