WRITE the story of your life.
Write the STORY of your life.
Write the story of YOUR LIFE.
Write with crayons gathered off the floor
after a long day of Legos, carpools, and snack requests fulfilled.
Write on bed sheets changed, and washed, and changed
day after wet night, after night.
Write your story on walls decorated with
stick cavemen and d-o-g spelled backward.
Write YOUR story outlined by the events
Divine Providence sends you
minute after day after year.
Write using warm, runny yogurt smeared on kitchen windows.
Write choosing broken Lancome lipstick
freed from a toddler’s hands, lips, and sailor dress.
Write spreading marshmellow fluff
on the peanut butter pages of your day.
WRITE YOUR STORY!
Thirty-four thousand days, about, you’re given.
Writing themselves without your authorship.
God, the author, requires you: Pen.
Pen, purposely pick yourself up.
Pray on Page One as the dew
evaporates unveiling today’s seeds.
Pray each page as you intentionally
discern the germ within your hands.
Pray your “The End” reaping fruit
harvested from seed sown in its proper soil.
Write with the grace of faith
that your life has meaning.
It must be written.
Write with the heart of hope
Christ’s victory has been won:
once for everybody’s everyday!
Write with the language of love
On laughter lines each day delivers
when a thankful heart is born.
Write with Mother Theresa’s smile on your lips,
her prolific pen in your hand.
What will you write today?
United to Christ,
WRITE the GOSPEL, the Good News, of YOUR LIFE, well lived.
