The mask of love forgives and gives again

It overcomes the sinfulness of pride

Unselfishly it thinks not of itself

But love sees others through the Father’s eyes


The mask of grace is gentle and demure

The measure of a godly heart and soul

It’s ev’ry thought, intention, deed is pure

It seeks salvation as it’s highest goal


The mask of joy is more than laughs and smiles

It overflows with joy because of Christ

Despite the pain, the tears, the trials

True joy exists, abounds, the future’s bright


The mask you wear before the world today

Is yours to choose– choose wisely your display


The challenge this month for Pensieve’s Poetic License was to write an English Sonnet, with a theme of “masked.” WOW – that was a doozy! But I made it. It’s technically after midnight, but I haven’t gone to sleep yet so it still counts as Friday, right? 🙂

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
