Not an Orphan

Susan Irene Fox


Accepting my adoption

With intended inheritance

The grace and love and compassion revealed

Life is a journey of small surrenders

As I follow, faith ignited,

From you living water flows.

From you, blessing overflows.

Iโ€™m branded by your adoption.

This blaze does not consume, but ignited

New Jerusalem my inheritance

This day I choose surrender

Unexplained peace is revealed

Each day your word is revealed

You give eyes to see, meaning flows,

Allow Spirit to teach in surrender,

Maturity grows within adoption,

Mirror clears with inheritance,

Face to face love ignited

A new view you ignited;

The way, the truth, the life revealed,

No laws but love is our inheritance,

From your center concentric circles flow

As we love we show adoption

Transformation, surrender.

Open hands in surrender,

Heart, mind and passion ignited

Cast out fear and embrace my adoption,

Grace and unconditional love revealed,

Through me your spirit andโ€ฆ
