I am not a painter,
One of the weightless butterflies floating across a canvas
Wedding water and pigment to create new life.
Yet I paint.
I am not a singer,
One of the radiant angels raising crystal voices
Bringing worshipers near to the holy throne.
Yet I sing.
I am not a poet,
One of the priests taking mortals by the hand
Leading the way through the torn veil.
Yet I write.
Oh, taste and see!
Perhaps I am one of these fragile ones
Made mighty to imbue the world with a glimpse –
A single tile in the vast mosaic,
A single thread in the Master’s tapestry,
Holding up a mirror so that you may see
And take up your part.

Athena lives and writes in Colorado Springs, where she can look up at the mountains and be reminded of the nearness of God. Hiking, reading, and spending time with her family are her passions. She and her husband, Jon, are actively involved in the Anselm Society, and they also run a ministry for blended families at their church. Whether through fiction, nonfiction or poetry, Athena loves to use words to paint portraits that display the work that God does within each person.
