I will put this blog to rest and post on Sarah Geringer regularly. If you have enjoyed my posts on Helianthus, please follow my new blog. Thank you for reading!
You lift me up
in the valley of despair
above shadowy sorrows
You flatten my mountains
of pharisaical pride
You level my rough spots:
Your glory shines forth
through all the cracks
in this earthen vessel.
Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed
and all people will see it together.
Isaiah 40:4-5a NIV
In honor of my blog’s second anniversary, here is my very first post.
When I drown in deep dark blue
I long for the whole dizzying array:
chocolate cream, coconut cream, pumpkin pie
chocolate cake, yellow cake, angel food
chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch custard
with a luscious red cherry on top.
The light fresh juicy melons
never provide the creamy mouthfeel
or the cushy cake comfort I crave.
and I rise high like meringue
until my stomach cramps
and pain crashes back down.
God is watching
but I reach for another
