thinking about my ‘one word’

Standard

merry

the way I want my

heart

to live.

not merry a cliche,

or merry a reminder,

of the hectic

season.

I

need…

the merry that is

life-giving, not taking.

the merry that  is

peace.

the merry that

voices the right

and

looks forward.

and

not back

I wear merry happily,

I write the merry

list,

and check them one

at a time.

heart happy,

check

relational growth,

check

halting the hectic?

the box is empty,

it needs a mark to be merry,

change is needed,

then peace will usher,

in

my merry.
