Once again, I have been gone, which is the lack of posts. This time I was volunteering at RADical Attachment Camp, which is for families with children that have reactive attachment disorder (RAD). Visit the website for more info. These kids find a safe place at the camp where they and their families can heal.
I was blessed to work there as junior staff. I was in the kitchen most of the time, but was still able to see the changes these families went through as they bonded together and were healed.
These last couple days have been hard for me. Now, before any of you get concerned, I’m doing fine. Really well, actually. Why, if I just said the last couple days were hard? Because God is Still God.
The following song by Heather Williams made me realize that more then ever. I’ve discovered that for bits here and there in life I will have a “theme song” for whatever is going on at that point. I don’t remember all of the songs, but it’s been things like Amazing Grace, Yes We Can, You Alone Can Rescue, Be Thou My Vision, etc. For the past couple days, my theme song has been God is Still God, the song that I listen to constantly.

It looks like you guys are getting two poems in two days. I remembered that I wrote this awhile ago, and didn’t post it. Dream of Flying is the first of my music inspired poetry. I wrote this when I first listened to Brian Crain’s music. What powerful songs. It is more abstract then most of my poems. Anyway, here is it is.
Dream of Flying
I dream of flying way up high,
And soaring through the air and sky.
Reaching out to touch the soft wind,
Forgetting that I ever sinned.
I want to get so far away,
If only that I can just say;
‘Praise the Lord!’ And not be hurled
Back down to this hurt, broken world,
This song has been my theme song in the past few days. The lyrics ring so true.
But our God is with us, so we say…
YES WE CAN!
God answers prayers. With Him on our side it is always ‘Yes we can!’ Always.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13
ALL THINGS! This has been so important to me. God is working. He is working right now. I can already see the evidence of the good things that are coming, and they are amazing! What will tomorrow bring? I am so excited to find out! I know I’ll fall, but I’m getting up again. I will not be brought down for long. God can help me move through the power of love. He is there! That is why I say ‘Yes we can!”
Remember, that as Christians. it is always YES WE CAN!
