Transcendence

Kathy A. Wittman 1949 (Tennessee)

You, Lord,
have carried me out of my cavernous pit
into the radiance of Your Love,
uplifting and transforming my spirit
into Your crystalline image.

Oh, Lord,
How can I truly love You?
As I transcend this veil of tears,
within my broken heart, I just
dimly recall youth's fading illusions.

Yes, Lord,
That part of me that I have so carefully
hidden I will one day reclaim for You,
as I present all of my being joyfully in
awestruck anticipation of Your Majesty.

Kathy A. Wittman

I am a retired college teacher. In the past, I taught classes in Education, English, and Psychology. At present, I am focused on developing my potential as an artist and writer. I have self-published books in the genres of autobiography, fiction, and poetry. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Tennessee (1972), a Master's Degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Tennessee (1983), and a Doctoral Degree in Educational Foundations from the University of Wyoming (1988). I have taken numerous college classes in Art and Creative Writing over the past decade. I completed an Associate Degree in Art from the Laramie County Community College (Cheyenne, Wyoming) in 2018, and I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Art from the University of Wyoming (Laramie, Wyoming) in 2020. I consider myself to be a "Life-long Learner". more…
