Beauty for Ashes

What can be said of the joy you bring?
I was was mute, now my heart sings.
You have filled the very void of my soul.
With hope and gladness, you have made me whole.
A weathered being from life’s stinging lashes,
My life is now complete, receiving beauty for ashes.

Inspiration: Poem recounting the new life in Christ. He brings joy, peace, and happiness through communion and fellowship with him. Based upon Isaiah 61:3 – To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. ~TRP~
