I write. Remember making-up stories from spelling words in the fifth grade. A journalism degree followed. Thanks for looking.

RESCUE

Help me forgive
Before I’m forgiven;
Find strength within
Beyond my vision.

Help me love
Before I’m loved;
Give thanks above
When pushed, shoved.

Help me believe
Before I doubt;
Repent to receive,
End sorrow’s drought.

Help me live
Before I die;
Learn to forgive,
Let love multiply.


Always

Celebrate love each day.
