God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes. (Psalm 18:24 MSG)
THE BOOK OF MY HEART
©2014 Diana Rasmussen
Secret pains hidden
Scribbles in margins
The mess of my life
Written in red
Come into my heart
turn mourning to joy
Mess into message
Test into testimony
Written in red

Wowzers, this is my favorite so far! I love the description of the scribbles in the margins. You take my breath away in your writings/poetry, or rather how you make all this work into one heart-stopping piece. I am blessed to have you in my life to guide me for the religion that I crave so deeply. Peace to you Diana! Dawn
Diana, I think the scribbles in the margins are the deep, momentary truths of our lives revealed and shared, tiny memoirs to remind us of where we were when.As God lifts us up, our pain recedes and only the ink is left, and His blood on the cross. This poem is a lovely reminder of all that.
Love this one!!!!
Thank you t, you know…I love the rewrites, lol! Way better than anything I could have come up with!
Diana, you are really good at writing these poems. They’ve all been lovely! You should consider writing a book of poetry if you haven’t already. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
