TITLE: Soaking in His Spices

Spices from my Lord
saturating me;
raining down on me
forming droplets
of His love.

It is enough,
His marvelous love.

I find over and
over again
no matter how
much pain
I am in,
He wants to
bear it with me,
if only I let Him.

The wounds of this life
sometimes are blaring,
the world --
even the church
seem uncaring.

I long to be touched
and changed,
not easily offended;
for I don't want
life's cares to
matter so much.

Like the flame
of a candle
dancing in the wind...
Its wax melting
down
ignites
something within.


I crawl onto the lap
of my Lord.
Enveloped by
a fragrance
I adore.

Allowing Him
to chase away
the tears
once more
as He
holds me
through my pain.

I step closer
into the folds
of His robe
...They drip
with spices
untold.

I forget the rain
that came
pelting down
on me
causing me
to be so lonely,

And huddle closely
with my Lord.

You've used beautiful imagery, lavish and sweet-smelling (and so reminiscent of the Savior's love). This reminds me of those beautiful words, "every tear I've cried, you hold in your hand -- and though my heart is torn, I will praise You.."

You did a very good job of describing your pain as well as how if feels to be held my the Savior.

I smelled the spices on His robe. Thanks for this entry.

This is beautiful. I could feel the intensity of the emotions you described and it drew me and in. Fantastic job.

I did not see who the author was when I first left my comment I must admit when I read it through the second time after seeing your name, I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes. I am glad that God is able to be there and comfort you tbrough your hard times. You created such a visual effect for me it was so intense. Beautiful
