Poetry, to me, is an elegant bridge that God uses to lead usaway from the numbness of the familiar into the amazement ofHis awesome love and grace. He used the Psalms to reveal magnificent truths about Himselfto man, and we have been blessed by those songs of love forthousands of years.When He finds a yielded, available vessel who is open to helpshepherd His little flock through the minefield of this valley of tears, He will use that instrument to pour out precious and pricelessgems to bless their pilgrimage Home, and in the process, rejoicetheir souls.Shirley Gutierez is just such a conduit of the Master's loving touch.Having fought many a battle down here herself, and found Hisvictory to be sweet, now she shares with you -- or better said, nowHe shares with you through her -- through her poetic gifts, truths thatwill equip you to see His marvelous light in the midst of your owndarkness or your own vexing valleys.Some would-be poets write "poetry" just for the sake of writing poems. Not so with Shirley Gutierez. This dear saint allows theHoly Spirit to use her to speak truth through her words thatlifts the veil and carries the reader beyond the shallows of mere logic, reason orraw emotion. I think the two words that best describe this giftto the Body of Christ, the book you hold in your hand, are anointed and inspired. See for yourself;you are in for one blessed encounter with grace, regardless of where your finger might land in this volume."We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence ofthe power may be of God and not of us" 2 Cor. 4:7. This is the oneverse that comes to mind when thinking about this sister and herwork. That "Treasure" inside her has been allowed to use thatearthen vessel for His pleasure and His glory as He touches your heart.Someone has said that poetry is "plucking at the heartstrings and making beautiful melodies with it." May you enjoy the music of herpoetry, and may that sweet music draw you ever closer to the One who poured them all out through her, for you.Dr. Charles BrowningChristian TherapistOrange Conty, CaliforniaSeptember, 2012
