We often ask our residents to get creative in their assignments. Creativity can bring healing and it can also help them discover that they are good at something they never realized they had a talent for. One assignment recently given to our residents was to write a poem as they learned to pray for God's love and we wanted to share one of the poems with you.
His love is beyond measure.
Unfailing, steadfast, never-ending.
My thoughts, concerns, so many questions.
Pretending? Who am I kidding?
Myself, my insecurities.
Yet I go on bidding
For I am His special treasure.
I truly do know better.
His love for me is beyond all measure.
