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. In the midst of the chaos that comes naturally with kids, pets, and altered schedules, I lost focus a couple of times. But then I cried out in prayer and God answered always showing his faithfulness.
The days were busy and enjoyable. Having my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren near is a great blessing. As I reflected upon the blessed time, I wrote this Limerick.
When tension flares, I’m tempted to rant
but humble entreat my God will grant.
Chains of stress shall be reprieved,
Yahweh hears—prayer received!
Now, shout and praise with angelic chant.
