My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Heartbeat - Tribute to My Creator written in 1991

creation
It was YOU who thought of me
It was YOUR creativity
It was YOU who gave to me all the many possibilities

YOU were there all the time
Wish I'd known, but I didn't
I was lost from YOUR love
And YOUR thought of me was hidden

I was gray, cold inside, full of pain
Not what YOU had in mind
Then one day, in despair
On my knees I turned to YOU in prayer

YOU took my hand and we walked away
Each step, my disguise is more erased
The beauty of YOUR thought unfolds
The colors YOU had planned are told

YOU heal the hurts, YOU ease the pain
YOUR LOVE works on, though the scars remain
YOUR FIRE burns the dross away
A gift is given in each day

I am YOURS, YOU are mine
Sketch the picture of
YOUR design
YOU
wrote a book about my life
Help me fill in the pages

I need
YOU
Like I need the air that I'm breathing
I need YOU
Like I need my very own heart beat
heartbeat, heartbeat...........

I console myself with coming back to Him because the wasted years can get overwhelming.

Great poem and words to live by. Have missed seeing you, heard you're on a yeast free journey. I wish you well.

word verification - beading...for some reason, this amuses me.

BTW, heard of Jane Monheit? Fabulous singer!
