Not Whispers

Ok soooo… God isn’t whispering at me. He’s SHOUTING.

I wrecked my car today… barely…

Truth be told, it should have been a whole lot worse than it was. My car should have rolled over when it landed in that ditch.

Hell, I wasn’t even going all that fast. A very good friend lost her father today and had called in a moment of hysteria and asked if I could pick her little girl up from school. I looked down at my phone to check the time and hit a puddle.

It was that fast.

Suddenly my momma was trying to climb in my lap and she’s saying “I have to get out! I have to get out!”, because she’s afraid that if she settles back at all in her seat the car will roll.

I had to LITERALLY turn sideways and use both of my feet to get my door open.

We should have rolled.

But we didn’t..


Rescue Me

I need your

Inner light

To guide me

And your hope

To lead me home

I hear your voice

It is my compass

When it feels like

I’m alone

You calm my


When I am shaken

Still the tremors

Of my life

To find you gone

Leaves me forsaken

And a little less


I see you

Reaching out to save me

And I slowly

Turn around

For I’ve yet

To catch my breath

From the last time

You watched me drown…
