Like Never Before – A Guest Post by Melinda Poitras

By Melinda Poitras


I asked You to make me strong
I forgot that You walk in perpetual paradox
I forgot that strength doesn’t need
So strength is weakness
Weakness is strength
You knew what I meant
And you made me just “weak” enough to do the right thing
Thank You

I asked You to make me happy
I viewed happiness as some mysterious distant destination
Naturally assuming I would one day wake up and be there
Happiness forgets You
Happiness can stand alone
You knew what I meant
And you made me just miserable enough to experience true joy
Thank You

I asked You to be near to me
I wanted You to come here
Fill in the space around all I was holding
Emptiness is full
Wounds are counted faithful
And You knew what I meant
So you broke my heart just enough – to open it
Thank You

I am so impossibly in love with You that everything is pink
Because You do exactly what I ask – when You don’t

“The songbirds keep singing, like they know the score
And I love You, I love You, I love You – like never before.”

Wind Beneath My Wings

Team members are vital to the overall success of the organization and must be appreciated by leadership. I’m eternally thankful for the team members I work with presently and those that have stood by my side through the years. This blog and poem is dedicated to you! I hope you know who you are and what you have done for me.


“The Wind Beneath My Wings”

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have the sunlight on your face.
You’ve been content to see me shine
You always walked a step behind.
I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strain,
Only a face without a name,
I never once heard you complain.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
And everything I’d like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
But you are the wind beneath my wings.
