Transformation (written 15 August 2009)

Standing before You, dressed in black, not in colour
but dressed in my sin,
pain and captured by my past.

But then You stand before me
holding out Your hand,
to have me come to You.

Your tears, blood and life,
transforms me from me,
and driven in darkness,
to the colour of Light.

And when I look again...
I'm dressed in white, not just in colour...
But in purity, integrity and grace.
A crown of gold and rubies placed upon my head!

Finally I am writing my first blog... I am Chevonne Lawrence and I live in a beautiful little town called Ocean View. Which is in Cape Town and yes we do see the ocean from our neighbourhood (depending on where you are standing). I love my hood (as a friend of mine continually quotes).. Ocean View is filled with pain, sorrow, frustration but it is also filled with loads of laughter, joy, kids playing together outside, women congregating a fence and chatting or just saying hey to someone walking past. With beautiful views, faces weathered by life happening, kids playing together, babies crying, women chatting and friends just chilling on someone's stoep I LOVE MY HOOD...
