Water into wine

Hello everyone. The work of a poet is never done! I’ve just made some revisions in today’s prayer, and thought some of you might be interested to see the difference changing a word or two can make:

 

Lord,
You are amazing!

You spilled
Your precious blood

So all my sins
Can be transformed,

And turned, instead, 
To love.

Lord,
You are amazing!

I’m yours,
And you are mine.

Now all my sins 
Have turned to love-

Like water 
Into wine.

**********************

Minded to forgive

Lord,

You’re not thinking
All the time
Of sin,

Of judgment,
Punishment,
And penance,

For you are love,
And minded
To forgive –

When we repent.
