Vales & Valleys (a poem by Virginia : )

On this late Advent weekday, here’s another go at a poem Virginia shared here six years ago. As our valleys descend into the deepest night, the Light of Christ is bright with love to guide us on our way.

VALES & VALLEYS

Oh heart, my Heart,
why are you so downcast within me?

Why so much despair?
Not caring, or sharing, the will
to walk the way ahead…

Into the valley of Shadows,
must I go?

Veiled, the vales lie deep before me
Sight hindered, darkness lingers
below the heights

Be still, my quaking heart
open up

…LISTEN FOR THE LIGHT…

Oh heart, my Heart,
Why are you so downcast within me?

Hear my cries, Oh Lord
MOST HOLY LIGHT

Shine bright

This night

Show me Your Light
in this valley of shadows.

Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me…”
(Psalm 23:4)

grace, peace & valleys
