It is Well

July 22, 2018

It is well with my soul

because despite the cracks

He has made me whole


it is well with my soul

because even through the constricted breath

of panic and angst I have the breath of life


I’m not thankful for panic and anxiety

but I am thankful that I’m still alive to experience them


Just one more experience in life

an experience the same way seeing the butterflies flutter in Aruba was

The same way each bite of something new and delicious is 


In times of peace AND in times of turmoil 

It is well with my soul

simply because I was given time for both

I was given time

Through pain and joy

a chance to learn

an opportunity to grow


One not everyone is afforded




New perspective 


What I am granted every time I open my eyes


Early or late in there morning or even in the middle of the night

Whatever hour I deem savory or not quite right


It is well with my soul because my eyes opened for one more day for someone to gaze in them and see into my soul


To gaze and be blessed or to pour in or maybe both

But they are open 


Open for the chance to see things differently


To witness change in the world around me each day 


It is well with my soul

Even as I fret about my physical appearance

About my scars


I pause


I pause and reflect on how many of those scars came from injuries that could have been worse


On the ones where the bleeding wouldn’t stop and someone intervened


It is well with my soul, scarred body and all


Scarred body carrying more weight then some say it should


Weight that’s come as the price I’ve paid for mental stability


And it is still well with my soul


My soul now jumps for joy and I think others can sense it


I cannot explain it always


But I can and will accept it


I will accept it and I will invite others to journey as well


To journey to this place of joy


To share in this delight


In this imperfect life


This imperfect life 


Where whatever happens I can find peace because


It is well with my soul
