Your Resources for Lent and Easter

Lent starts on Ash Wednesday is on Wed, March 1 this year. Easter Sunday is on Sun, April 16. I thought it would be a nice gift to those who read my blog to give them 3 independent resources for Lent and Easter and anytime for the last of the 3. I hope you enjoy them whether you look at one or all, it is your choice to download. Susan…

Child and Adult

New beginnings
New endings of old
New possibilities
New hopes and dreamsOnce, I was a child.
I spoke as a child.
I acted as a child.
I am no longer childish.

My fears were real
as a child abused.
As an adult I no
longer carry that fear.

My abuse was real
as a child to abuser.
Now, adult I am no
longer abused but loved.

My abandonment
was real from mother
and father, but I am
no longer abandoned.

My loneliness was real
as a child and an adult.
I choose not to be lonely
but to make relationships.

As a child, my hopes
were scoffed and lost.
As an adult, I choose
to believe in my hopes.

I am no longer a child
abused, fearful, lonely,
and without hope, but
the adult rebukes these.

Once I was a child, but
the adult chooses to
be full of hopes and
dreams and fearless.
