new creation


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)



Twelve years had taken their toll.

Money, dignity and hope


She found herself among the crowd, 

Carried along by clamour and crush.

She reached out

And through dust and tears

And knowing

Old things passed.


Even before the question

And the trembling silence


Began to take shape in her heart.

But it was in words of


And peace

She realised

All things had become new.
