Celebration

She tells me, in words quickly written, about her messy heart.
I smile, I see her for what she is...beautiful.
We cry over the black pieces of our hearts, our broken places that we react out of.

My sister-friend, this daughter of my King:

Others may look on, and think we're crazy.
They may not see this battle we're fighting.

To shout "Hosanna" for the grace given.
Glory given to the Only One in this vast land who deserves it.
He reigns tonight, sister-friend.
He reigned last night, He'll reign every day, until forever in eternity!
All …

I see what You have done.I ask for more.I fail to recognize the glory of You, Daddy.I often forget those daily small gifts, forgetting completely to praise and thank You for those things.I keep asking for signs of Your love when it’s already surrounding me.I fail to praise You for those mountains that continually shin…
