Change

The change in me
when in Christ I believe
should be as noticeable as when
I dye my hair Love Apple Red

 

The prompt at dVerse Poets Pub yesterday was to write a poem about hair, using it as a metaphor or as the topic of the piece. At first nothing came to mind and I had decided to skip the prompt. But then this morning I remembered this post that I wrote some time ago about hair and decided to reduce the gist of that long post to a short poem.

  1. Love this Linda! Sometimes when I see someone from my past, from before I accepted Jesus, I don’t think they will recognize me. Haha! I’m always so surprised!
    God bless you and all the change He’s wrought!

  6. This reminds me of a Bible verse:

    “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

  8. true that…
    faith without works is dead…
    not that it is all works…but our life
    and how we react to and interact with others
    is one of our greatest testimonies…
