“MARIE” – an acrostic profile poem
She finds it easy to be merciful, as she experiences daily the mercy of her God.
Welcoming eyes and ready smile … not peculiar enough to frighten, nor so lovely as to intimidate.
Sinner-deemed-sinless, a debt she can’t pay.
Humbly and deeply thankful for parents who taught much, and loved regardless; an abundance of encouraging, uplifting, loyal friends and extended family; and mostly her Creator, whose unyielding love, grace, and mercy breathe her very existence.
Taught by her father that “Nothing great was ever accomplished without enthusiasm.”
