In Each and Every Thorn

Dear Beloved Prodigal,   When you come Home to Your Abba Father, you will be so excited. Like the woman at the well, you will run to tell others in your church about the depths of His love for us all. You will see women weeping and you will know they too have just experienced... Continue Reading →

Hidden Jewels

On Rock  He teaches  Us to build With human hands  We go to work   Believing  Our self-righteous works Our Rock  Must build. And so  He sends us forth In waters deep Storms now come Our human rock  To shipwreck Break    On foreign shores. We sift our debris  Eyes laid low Yearning now  Our... Continue Reading →

Unwrap Her Here

Death you know All you ever thought you were All you ever dreamed All you ever loved.   But, My child  This death  Is death  To flesh alone.   In slumber  Has he but laid you there.

Sweet Breath

A poem by Anna Louise Smit (2017) Do you see the many leaves Crushed and broken, torn, Barren tree Weeping shittim wood Arms stretched heavenward  Waiting? As manna then from heaven Falls Bare they do remain But in praises sway Many branches, side to side As One. Firmly planted In love's strong roots Swaying now... Continue Reading →

I Will Sing
