Once Again

Once Again

“Once again” is my favorite failure
keeping its promise to return.
“Once again” is starting over,
trusting God when I don’t trust myself,
giving in to hope
instead of giving up,
granting grace to this heart
that easily focuses on failure
once again
finding freedom
by practicing the positive things
that can’t prevent disaster,
but protect me from defeat.

I never have found a box that fits me, so I follow Jesus into the wild. My husband, Bud, and I are two life-long hippies, parents of four grown children, and live in Bartlett, TN, with six cats, two dogs, and no TV. I am a voracious reader and am passionate about prison ministry. I am also an advocate for middle-aged and senior women, and anyone who suffers from depression.
