Opening Up

Opening Up

Like a rosebud
Curls downward into itself
Tight, rigid, closed
Unwilling to open out
Until the sunshine and warmth
Of  the balmiest day
Melts away its' final defenses

So the grace of Jesus
Prods open my locked up heart
Fills it up fully
Saturates it with ardor and affection
Waters it with mercy
Opens it up, pardoned, nurtured
Smiling upon my days as a blessing.


  1. Need this today Peggy, thank you. Blessings.

  2. Can't imagine all the possibilities when we open up to His love and grace...The art and the poem are both so beautiful...Shows what His love did in your heart! God bless.

  3. So lovely! I can almost see the dewdrops resting on the unfurled petals.

  4. Peggy, came back for another read.
