My Ray Of Light
Through all the hard times in my life,
Through all the good times too,
There's been one constant, solid source,
My ray of light...You.
You guide me through lifes' valleys,
You protect me from lifes' wrath,
You lead me in the right direction,
Along lifes' bumpy path.
For I am just a tiny piece,
In a puzzle that's so grand,
But still in all I'd lose my place,
Without Your guiding hand.
So though I cannot see at times,
And I stumble through the night,
I'm always sure I'll find my way,
For I have my ray of light....
This next poem is a perfect example of the Holy Spirit preparing us, what is eerie is this was written and published in March of 2000.
A Solemn Promise
What's going on, what's taking place,
smiles gone, and now replaced
With looks of horror, shear disbelief,
for all life's joy has turned to grief.
Jobs are scarce, money too,
come month's end the rent is due.
Parents work, still not enough,
all around things are tough.
Lets not forget the little ones,
who played with toys and switched to guns.
They go to school but cannot learn,
gangs and drugs are their concern.
We seek an answer, it's all so strange,
oh how much our world has changed.
We can't give up, we must not quit,
until our torch within is lit.
Not til then can our world be one,
only then...will our job be done.
Our Savior left us with the Holy Spirit to Guide us, protect us, and shine through the dark to light our way. I pray that these poems lighten your heart and spirit, and may you have a fruitful, peaceful and safe weekend.
May God bless you and your loved ones and continue to hold you in His loving embrace...Patricia
