Value vision


Figuring what do I have to give

to a bunch of teens

Listening to the call to look at

the bits of me

that litter the information highway

my desk and journal

covered in micro version of me

my children living – breathing

inside -outs- of- me

my patterns painted across my  life,

my values

my hard held

tight gripped musts



seeing the unspoken

and letting it be unseen

Sometimes space is all that’s needed

Listening and letting it breathe




pointing out the obvious

in a push for clarity

Keeping open my mind for newness

and my heart for Light



having a vague knowing

of where the goal is

having the courage to run toward it

even though I have no idea

where it will end up

I just know it will all be ok

-God’s got this!



getting lost in the detail paradise

to see what is

it’s like being covered

in comfortable pillows

arranging the pieces that I have found

fills me with excitement every time



Not moving

if I know its not right for me

stay the course to see it through



Paint the colors of your vision

tell me where the pencil starts and stops

I will follow along



A clock it runs on the inside

flagging me and ringing me

It’s loud, it must not be ignored



cleanliness is next to Godliness

picking up after yourself

lets you see where you are a mess

Give it to GOD,

do the work and move forward anew



hang in there with you

together we will make it

Giving up is not an option

What I am is all for the Glory of God

it’s not about me



These hands were made to serve

and lift high in thanks to the God

who made me who I am


Values are the power drivers

behind what we do?? What are your values?

  2. what a good idea, to lay it all out like this, friend. you have a beautiful heart.


  3. Confidence/Willingness reached out and grabbed me. Especially the way you put it. Sounds to me like courage to go where you can’t see the bottom. I love that.

    I also loved your intro, how you said these were the patterns painted across your life. Oooh, such imagery. Thanks for this!

    This reads like a personal manifesto – of a person with very strong values and integrity. I especially like preparedness/organization and cooperation/helpfulness. You sound like a good person to be around 🙂 I don’t know if I could summarise myself quite so succinctly but it’s really lovely to read yours!

    Wow, you’ve brought out insights regarding each of these words that I wouldn’t have thought of without your help, Starla. I really like this and I’ll pray for you and your impact on those teens. You have a lot to give!
