From Ashes To Beauty - Poem by Patricia Gale

From these trials
I shall rise
Becoming anew
I will trade these ashes for beauty

I will shine like the Son
No longer in darkness
Forgiveness will be my crown
Covered by a robe of mercy

My soul consumed by grace
Upon my heart a golden band
My lips shall sing His praise night and day
With my feet planted deep within the solid rock

    Patricia, wise counselling would suggest feet planted deep within the solid rock, otherwise you stand the chance of being blown into someone else's nightmare of ash. But the parable is well stated! Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
