Warrior Sisters

IMG_9252

In the quiet of the canyon,
Love slipped in on emerald wings

weaving hope among the thorns,
the Holy bleeding through the night

like diamonds,
until we said, Good Bye.

Yet across the miles,
hearts circled,

lifting, shielding,
wielding prayer and tears

and grace,
mercy falling

across the keys
of each pulsing life,

toes dipped
into the cool, clear waters

cutting deep
these ancient walls.

Tender flames grafting
into an unlikely band

of Freedom Fighters,
thirteen strong.

We are:

Frio-birthed,
Canyon-fed,
Grace-filled,
God-loving,
Hope-giving,
Prayer-drenched,
Love-nourished,
Word-sated,
Wagon-circling,
Trust-unfurling,
Shield-wielding
Frio, Ninja,

Warrior Sisters,

And we are ONE!
No sister left behind.

  3. So beautiful, Cindee! I’m so grateful you did the photo with the yellow flowers because yellow flowers always make my smile. Probably because my mom loved yellow roses.

  4. Oh, this just makes me cry and smile and sigh. You are such a gifted writer, Cindee, and to be a prayer warrior/sister with you and the rest of the Frio girls? It’s something I’ll forever be grateful for.
