PROSTITUTION…WHAT IT REALLY IS

By Anita Mondragon

Years ago, I read an article in the Rocky Mountain News.  A journalist had interviewed several prostitutes here, on the streets of Denver.

I wrote down several of the questions asked, and the answers given.  Here are the two that stuck out in my mind:

Q:  “What is the answer for you?”

A:  “I don’t know…I think its death.”

Q:  “Living this way must be very difficult for you…what is the hardest part?”

A:  “The hardest part…is having to be me when it’s all done…”

THE NURSERY WINDOW

By Anita Mondragon
I believe the spirit part of every man exists in Heaven before he becomes flesh here on earth…hence, the nursery window.  God knows us before we are formed in our mother’s womb, and He places His purpose in us, as well as our gifts, abilities, etc.  That’s why He could say: “I KNOW the plans I have for you…”  Just a thought…just an opinion. -anita

She walks in degradation

Wondering, aimless through the streets.

She’s nothing but a tramp now…

MERCY

By Anita Mondragon

With mercy…You were broken

With mercy…Your blood shed.

You breathed Your words of Life in me…

And now, my sins are dead!

You looked upon my broken heart,

And saw the tears I cried;

You took my pain and sorrow,

When on the Cross You died.

You bid me come to You, and let my soul be fed.

You are the Living Water…

You are my Daily Bread.

I come to you Oh Jesus!  On bended knee, I fall;

Have mercy on me Lord…as on your name I call!

IS THERE STILL MERCY LEFT FOR ME???

By Anita Mondragon
I have been thinking a lot about God’s mercy lately…how deep, and wide His love and grace reach.  Even though I was brought up in a Pastor’s home, and heard about Jesus, I strayed far, far from that truth for a long time.  When I finally came to the end of myself, I wondered if there was any mercy left for me…or if I had somehow exhausted the longsuffering of God.  The other day, as I sat pondering, and remembering how many times He has rescued me, I wrote this poem.  Thank God for His mercy and grace!
