wandering far . . . never leaving here . . .
looking but not seeing . . . longing to see all clear . . .
exploring circles . . . chasing out with inner near . . .
black holes dance . . . seeking breath of One so dear . . .
as day follows night, as Spring follows fall
so my heart follows light while my mind questions all
and my spirit whispers softly . . . come, have no fear
Light . . . Love . . . Vision . . . Peace . . . One
thoughts: December 10, 2018 Jeanne Hicks Barnett
a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6.
My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)!
I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting!
Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
