35 Shades of Grace

35 Shades of Grace

I smile like there’s no sorrow,
and when sorrow strikes, I smile again.
I sing like there is no one listening,
and when someone listens, I sing again.

I love like there is no deception,
and when deception comes, I love again.
I live like there is no tomorrow,
and when tomorrow comes, I live again.

It’s been 35 years of living out loud,
though there were days I died in silence.
It’s been 35 years of learning to soar
though there were days I sank in silence.

I came this far only by grace,
life has happened to me many times.
I run into God’s warm embrace
even when I commit common crimes.

I turn pain into a work of art,
because I carry God’s creative force.
I brew hymns in my hurting heart
because God is my inexhaustible source.
