By Bethany Farrell
There is a way that things are done.
Ordered and bordered
Expected and accepted like
There is a way that I must see.
Black and white
Focused and structured like
There is a way that I must be.
Buttoned up and straight laced
Moderate, maintained, and mild mannered like
God gives a way to live my life.
Openly and expansively
Grounded in God and windswept by the Spirit to reach
God gives a way to see the world.
Not with my eyes, but with my heart
Full of grace and compassion for
God gives a way for me to be.
Made in the Creator’s image, I embrace creativity
To truly be free to truly love
