"Wheels Turning Inward" is a is a rich collection of over fifty poems, following a poet’s mythic and spiritual journey that crosses easily onto the paths of many contemplative traditions. The artwork at the top of this page, is one image found in the Gordon Moore Memorial stain glass window at Trinity Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, by the artist Kim Clark Renteria. The image of these three circles, is emblematic of both the Trinity and the title for this new collection of poetry now available from Friesen Press.

Sadie Lin

Sadie Lin  -  Sadie Lin  -  Sadie Lin
Is coming, she is coming today
She is almost here you know
She is coming with a

Host of angels from heaven
Above, and will be guarded
And loved by a host of angels
Here on earth, and her name

Means wondrous beautiful loving child
Princess of light and love, and
She will have the smallest
Of hands and feet

With fingers and toes to match
And ears and nose and eyes to
Hear, and smell, and see this world
We call the earth and love so dearly

She will come smiling into the world
As God smiles on us all
With her mouth wide open
With a great cry and a shout

To let us all know that she has
Arrived, and she will arrive as a blessing
A blessing of love and a blessing of joy
Her eyes will reflect the stars of heaven

Her breath will be as sweet as heather
Her cries a sound to mark
The brightest passing of life
From the heavens above to earth itself

She will change the world forever
She will change your world and our world
She will rock the world with her
Very body and being

Even though she is one of
The smallest of creatures
To be born on God’s
Good earth today

And she will bring with her
The brightest visions of heaven
And a new love, unknown before today
Because this is the day of her birth

Because this is the day of her birth
And the world has taken note
Of the miracle of life, of how this
Gift of life always calls out to life

While all of creation waits
With bated breath, to see
Her grow day by lovely day
Into the graciousness of God

Into the fullness of Sadie Lin
