I am linking up for Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “Guide.” This community is such a gift to me. I love what Anita said last night at our FMF Twitter, “Your social media friends go with you wherever you go.” We’d love to have you join us on Thursday nights for our Twitter party.
Like the prairie winds
She blows where she will
Tossing to and fro
The wise Holy Spirit
Who guides where she will
Where God needs you to be.
The Holy Spirit,
The dove of love
Who flows forth
Between the Father and the Son
Guiding, leading, following
When is needed
The way, the truth, and the life
The alpha and the omega
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
The almighty three in one
Who guides us all
As we seek
To do justice, love kindness and walk humbly
With our God.
And because I love Rend Collective Experiment, I have to share their new song and video which just released the other day.
Beautiful, Tara! I love that you said “she”. 🙂
Hi Tara, “the dove of love” is my favorite description. Thank you so much for this lovely poem. Have a blessed weekend, Julie
I may not always agree with you friend, but I always appreciate your words. Your poetry is beautiful. In the 51 spot today.
I always appreciate your words too friend. And thank you!
I love how the Holy Spirit gently guides us- and thanks for sharing the Rend Collective song. I hadn’t heard this one yet!
It’s great isn’t it!?!?
I almost used the hymn Holy Spirit Be My Guide but went with God Leads us Along.
Loved the Rend Collective. Had not heard it yet.
I love Rend Collective. This is a new song. I’m loving it!
Tara, such soothing words! I’m so thankful the Holy Spirit guides us through every situation we face in this life. Have s wonderful weekend, my friend!
Thanks! Hope you had a great weekend!
I love this, Tara!
Keep writing this poetry. I’m loving your words!
Ok I’ll keep writing poetry! And thank you sweet friend!
I love Rend Collective! And I love this poetry as well. Blessings!
Thanks! Blessings to you too!
Beautiful words. Beautiful song.Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome. Glad you enjoyed them.
Your poetry is a balm to my soul tonight. Tara! I love Rend Collective, and I had not heard their new song yet. I hope you have a great weekend!
This is outstanding, Tara, and the video’s wonderful.
Though I have to admit that when I read ‘dove of love’ I immediately thought of Dove bars, which, when I could still eat them…I loved.
Wow thank you! Ooh now I want a Dove chocolate bar. I’ll have one for us both.
Gorgeous, life giving poem. I love this, friend. It inspires me to learn more of the Holy Spirit. I run straight to the father even if I know he is three. You’ve inspired me this morning. I appreciate you. Love you. #fmf
Thank You sweet friend! I appreciate you so much too. Love you!
Tara, Beautiful poem giving depth and breadth to the Holy Spirit. Love the “she” reference and the “dove of love.” “Knowing exactly where God needs you to be.” Sounds like you are speaking from recent experience :).
Thanks friend! I am indeed speaking from recent experience!
good words tara:)
Your words sore and dive. Love your poem! Also a big fan of Rend Collective. Thanks for sharing your insight into the Holy Spirit.
Also, someday I’ll remember to join the Twitter party again! I always remember the Thursday night party when I see the prompt on Friday… :/
Thank You! We miss you at the Twitter parties!
Beautiful poem and I adored the song!
