Giving pieces of ourselves away

Slow loss of our identity giving pieces of ourselves away

Losing pieces of ourselves each day

Caught in addiction hurting inside

Eating away in pieces at God’s peace that can abide

Lured by the darkness within

Justifying all our sin

Forgetting about the love that brought two caring hearts together

Love that falters in the stormy weather

Trust broken by lie after lie

Pieces at a time covenant love starts to die

Voices raised to a children’s ear

In the child’s eye a tear

Broken sleep the wounded child holding to a teddy bear

A saddened face does now wear

We forget the One we should be holding so dear

Hurt that child for many a year

Is that fleeting lust worth all that?

Why continue with spat after spat?

Remember the love of God that brought you together

He who is with you through life’s stormy weather

The addict and the adulterer can have new hope

Turning to God and getting off the booze and dope

So their endless night would turn to day

Knowing their Lord is with them all the way

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
