Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Away From Home


Iraqi Freedom

One thought beats strong

Thundering in my heart

Thoughts of home

The aroma of home cooking

The sound of the sweetest voice I have ever known

Far away

But the echoes are loud within

Conjuring up images of the embodiment of love

And the home I will be returning to

One day soon….
