DAY OF POETRY

Happy New Year! Wishing everyone the best year EVER! Trusting that better days are ahead of us in 2021. Say Amen.

As many of you know, I just published my 3rd book “Just Sister Jackie, My First Collection of Poetic Observances” and I am truly excited about this new journey. I am just sitting here and I decided to give you a taste of poetry today. This one is fresh off the presses. It is aptly entitled “Leave me at the Altar.” Here we go!

Leave me at the altar
Leave me at the altar
Right there with my father
The One who will embrace me since
I am not perfect
The One who accepts my imperfections
With hopes that I will change
I desire to change
Those presumptuous sins
Those things that keep us apart
Those ways that Separate me from You
That thorn in my side
The one that I try to hide
It can be rough and tough
But you say thy grace is enough
Thank you for understanding my plight
I trust that You are right
I will not be outlawed because of my blight
I am already perfected in your sight
Like JJ I say Dyn-O-Mite
Friends and foes, I am not trying to be a martyr
No need to make this any harder
I am not here to barter
Just leave me at the altar 
With my Father.

Pray for me and leave me at the altar with my Father.
He is the only One who will make everything alright.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
