Today’s guest post comes from a friend who for years pew-sat near where I pew-sat. We waved, smiled, hugged, and regularly engaged in worship side-by-side. I came to know her creative heart as she shared through a regular design article in our local paper and through her business posts over social media. Her eye for beauty never fails, and neither does her willingness to pray.
Create Challenge #33: Ann McDonald
God’s heart, the soil
Steward in the secret place
No place too deep, heights beyond
Healed, beauty born
Order out, safety balance
Creative beyond measure
Love, weight, fallen yet redeemed
Place of honor stewarded
The psalmist sings
Transparent truth, weight measured
Bearing anguish, healing souls
Relationship, chords become
In blood, redeemed creative
Bring forth new
Endless soil, possible
God’s heart, stewarded from
Are, beloved truth, birthed from
From the soil
God’s heart, now seeds
Break through, growth, fearless, timeless
