Welcome to my site! Wandering with Words is a journey around the world through words. The written word, from when I could read, has opened up new and exciting worlds and since I became an author myself I have created new worlds, helped other people to create new worlds. I embarked on the journey of a writer when I turned forty years of age. This was when my nest had emptied. I felt the need to express myself and I believed there was a deposit of experience within me I could share with the world. I faced many challenges, one of the hardest was learning to expose my true thoughts, feelings and opinions. Over the years, my self esteem had suffered and I didn't really know who I was. To be a writer, I needed to find myself and ceased from building walls around myself. Words fascinate me, they create images, they help me explore ideas and weave dreams so my life has been enriched. Words create friends conversely they make enemies hence the need to choose words wisely. Friendships forged by words of love, esteem, respect often last a lifetime and enrich those unions. Words are the fabric of life, we need to cultivate a vocabulary of words that bless and cheer and create worlds of joy and beauty and goodwill. My great and driving passion is my love for the Lord Jesus Christ. Deep within me, he is the one who has set me free from inhibitions and poor self esteem to grow as a writer and take my place in the world of words. I want to share with all and anyone, the depthless and immeasurable love of God through Jesus, his Son. I hope you can join me on the trip and enjoy the journey, perhaps even add to the journey with a word or two of your own. Enjoy the stories, articles, images, be enriched by what you read and see in Wandering with Words.
HE BECAME AS A SLAVE
His greatness was confined
In the body of a man
His power bound by human weakness
He was a prisoner of his Father’s love.
He was God, yet he laid aside
The privileges of Heaven
And chose a life of want.
He was a prisoner of his Father’s love
The years were short and lonely
True friends few and far
He sought his father’s presence
He was imprisoned by his Father’s love.
On a mission he was sent
To restore his father’s realm
He must plumb the depth of evil all alone
He was Ambassador of his Father’s love
He died as any man, buried in a borrowed grave
He flexed his mighty power
Death fled in fear of him.
His Father’s love now made him King
Jesus is his name!
