Her Life’s Creed

  • The little star fish said to me
  • Why haven’t you been to the sea

 

  • We’ve missed you for oh so very long
  • How are you getting along

 

  • Just fine and dandy i do fare and declare
  • Living my life under God’s constant watch and care

 

  • The journey had required much of me
  • Thus I could not visit with thee

 

  • But alas! Here am i now
  • Free of all of my vows

 

  • All this time, I have had it in mind to meet up with the sea turtle 
  • For you see on my last visit he did not come when I snorkeled

 

  • I looked for him here and there and everywhere 
  • But, with me he did not his presence share

 

  • Oh girl! You fret too much
  • There in lies your crutch
  • Adopt calm
  • Receive balm

 

  • Oh girl! You need not use such sheer will force
  • The wise one’s avoid such a person’s discourse 
  • Adopt gentless 
  • Receive blessedness 

 

  • Oh girl! You try too hard to earn God’s good favor and merit
  • Recall you are Their loved child with full Divine credit
  • Adopt grace
  • Receive its mace

 

  • Oh girl! You need not strain for the simple joys 
  • Be still and avoid all drama and noise 
  • Adopt ease
  • Receive, please

 

  • In your heart’s beat is already your Divine desire
  • Let its song guide you, it is so much more wiser
  • Stop the chase
  • Embody a Divine pace

 

  • Thus…
  • The little girl heeded the starfish’s wise counsel
  • She stopped willing mountains to move and being doubtful 

 

  • She took a deep deep breath and gave a grateful sigh of relief 
  • Next, upon the sea, she released all of her stored grief

 

  • She stopped looking so frantically 
  • Instead she relaxed into her heart’s cadence happily

 

  • She trusted her heart’s guidance 
  • And let go of the ego’s expectations and contrivance

 

  • Each day she showed up to life’s store house
  • Knowing that the Divine had already planned her routes

 

  • This freed her up from striving, conniving, and driving so hard
  • She did not need to earn God’s good reward 

 

  • In this space of ease and grace 
  • The turtle of his own accord showed up for their long awaited date

 

  • Her joy was beyond measure 
  • She reveled in this Divine treasure

 

  • A life long lesson it was indeed
  • Obeying the Voice of Love is now definitely her life’s creed

 

  • Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
  • for I am gentle and humble in heart,
  • and you will find rest for your souls.
  • For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
  • Jesus, 
  • The One Whose Love saved our souls
  • Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest,
  • so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. 
  • Hebrews 4:11 

 

  • How do you get to this place of “living rest, or restful living”?
  • “Do as He tells you.”, 
  • Mary at the Wedding of Cana
