CREATED FOR EDEN

20161023_172035.jpgOh God, how I need you now.

The place where you meet with me and make me feel brand new.

It is there in your presence that you breath life into me.

I find peace… Shalom Shalom peace, not the peace this world has to offer!

I take your hand and we walk on together along the waters edge.

You remind of all creation… how you have your hand on every thing.
