Saving Grace

In this moment came
My saving grace
When all the tumult of the world
Might crash around me
Perhaps deservedly
A momentโ€™s godlike leniency
Reaches out to me

And could I now believe
This tender hand
Which reached across this space
Was true and hopeful here
Could wipe away my tears
Relieve me of my fears
Support me through my years?

Pure moment of belief
To see my saving grace
Where wretched I had fallen
Old and broken to my knees
Barely breathing, just degrees
Yet before my heart could freeze
Came this graceful, calming breeze

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. I normally don’t expect to be so taken with rhyming poetry–but this pulled me in. A thoughtful poem. Thanks.

    You knew this would be my new favorite, didn’t you? It brought tears to my eyes….it is just so incredibly true. I would love to print this out and tuck it in my Bible with your permission, Sis. It is just lovely. Big hugs….
