Sometimes I decide to give something up for Lent or to add something during this time of intentional personal reflection and prayer. This season of Lent, I will be writing a poem a day. I thought I would share this one…

I opened my eyes…
To the sun streaming through the blinds,
Spilling ‘cross the room and into my mind,
Breathing the first breaths of a new day undefined.

I opened my eyes…
To a wide world not already knowing,
The gifts that God has been bestowing,
Upon those whose faith had started growing.

I opened my eyes…
To a place with no ways of anguish or pain,
Where people lived with no hate or disdain,
Where love and kindness and grace sustained.

I opened my eyes…
