Reverently Stored

Still My Heart

During the quietness, on Christmas Day, I wrote the following poem. The first stanza burst forth as a prayerful song in my heart. I found myself singing and humming it all day. Later, I sat down and worked on the remainder in meditation concluding with a crescendo of praise.

Bless the Lord

For the past two weeks, I had five of my grandchildren under my care as their momma recuperates from major surgery. I’m not accustomed to the rhythm of homeschooling, meals, laundry, and life with five each day.

But then I cried out in prayer and God answered always showing his faithfulness.
