In this strange but wonderful union of people
that we call America.
Black, gold, white and red
are closely woven tapestries
that cannot be separated by pain
nor undone by joy.
each seeking their own truth,
pour out division in our daily lives,
and beckons sweetness, but leaves barely at
times the bitter remnant of peace.
Not so is it with my Jesus,
who embraces all
with strong bleeding arms.
Affirming both the creation and Creator.
As all loving –
And salvation as natural
to both the shed blood and his broken body,
and He continues to unite Himself with us.
In this energy of spirituality of my Jesus
I spend my days.
In the unfolding of his purposes
I find my Lord giving to me the breath of life.
His tears washing me,
His joy uplifting
and His love completely filling all.
Stay in God's grip!
