Across from the table I look for your eyes

You look toward me but your eyes pass by mine

A smile takes form in those windows of your soul

Wonder ignites and a shine takes hold


You won't catch my eyes as you glance by

But I caught your smile and your twinkling eyes

I know you see me as I observe, too

Captivated by the wonder God placed in you.


Giggling quietly at the scripts you find

Entertained by the mysteries inside your mind

Wired by Hand are the pathways inside

Your brain is amazing, you're one of a kind


I watch captivated by the beauty unfolding

In my child with autism that God is molding

The details that define you are unique by far

I'm captivated by you and the masterpiece that you are















Trading Places: An Easter Poem

He's alive

Trading Places

Catching a glimpse of His reflection
I turn around to see
The crown on his head
His blood trickling down
The price that set me free

The scars on his hands
His clothes dirty & torn
For this task He was born

My pain on His face
My sin is His robe
My hurts on Him unfold

I gaze on His face
Amazed at His grace
His passion shining through

Deep love in His eyes
He heard every cry
As my life He bravely rescued

He took it all and healed my soul
He traded places with me
With love ordained from Heaven above
Determined to set me free!

He died on that cross
His life He lost
Paid the ransom due

He rose again
And conquered death
Defeated all sin too

Once and for all
His children He’s saved
Dressed in His clothes, redeemed, washed clean

That we would be
always together
On earth and in Heaven

His Bride for Eternity.
