The Porch

By Sarah C

Time a bittersweet gift

allowing joy and pain to the soul.

And rest unknown

when painful memories remain whole.

Guilt a cruel thief

stealing enjoyment of love and acceptance.

Heavy burdens need release

for peace to take hold.

Undeserved freedom

from troubles and sorrows begins

as the Healer creates a path

to make Love known.

While imperfections remain

a Hope now whispers

words of forgiveness

for this weary soul.

Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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."

Galatians 5:1

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."
