The hallway is long, wide and high. I can’t see its end. I am able to hang pictures and more; memories of my life are here. On quiet days when resting, I come to walk slowly through this space too large for me to comprehend. The imagery is not that of a museum. It’s life […]

The steps I walk seem so random. Each moves me forward, even when I go in a sideways or cross movement. A memory invades my perception from a game played as a child. Hopscotch rules remind me of words, “safe” and “home” and especially “rest”.

A crowd begins to jeer Who is this woman? Her fears rise until she wants to run Opposition gets louder Voluminous voices try to drown resolve Her message is a statement Listening, she asks for wisdom She lays herself down Nothing more to be done Love is sought Humility her answer

Greater Than…

Feb 22nd, 2012 by debrabee | 0

Great are the battles within each and every one of us. I stood witness to a reflection of myself today. My own weakness I heard shared in the words spoken.

Humor Commodity

Feb 18th, 2012 by debrabee | 0

A sense of humor is a precious commodity in serious times. It can be arms of comfort or weapons of warfare. I pay attention to humor in myself and in others. The way one uses humor can be quite telling. The weaponry aspect shows when I see deflection; that would be the shield. To see […]

Two turtledoves sat outside my kitchen window. I looked on them with a love burning in my heart knowing what they represented. They would not leave each other. They were dedicated. They were singularly focused. They flew freely. They chose to fly together always.

Boundless Greed

Feb 16th, 2012 by debrabee | 0

He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good.   Pro 19:8 My greed knows no boundaries and the hunger in me cannot be quenched. I tilt my ears to listen intently to what is spoken of truth. In my dullness, I come alongside those who can sharpen me. With […]
