Lord I know You are
always with me in tragedy
Walking beside me while I
pick up the pieces
Holding the rubble until I gain
strength to sort through it

What I really need is for You
to shield my joy
It is so fragile and fleeting
Help me to enjoy the moments 

Birds singing in the dawn
The first delicate flower emerging 
from the frost of a bitter winter
A gentle rain drifting down
Children giggling in the sunshine
The warmth of friends around 
a campfire on a chilly autumn night
Someone who knows and loves me 
holding my hand through a glorious sunset

Remind me not to get lost 
searching for joy in material things 
For it can only be found
in beauty and song 
that touches the heart

    Faith can be a powerful ally. It seems to be a blessing for those who grasp and hold true to its lessons. Allan

    Monterey, very sweet poem. Life provides us the opportunity to experience all its bounties. Nature being right at the top. I express this in "Beauty Abides". Allan

    True indeed sweetie, we have all that we need in the very beautiful words you have written here. Things are nice, but that is what they are...things. I happen to love trees and I get such enjoyment out of seeing the seasons change. Love, Shar

    What a wonderful prayer, I will echo your words to our King. When things are going well it is so easy to forget where our blessings are coming from. I really like the thought behind this one Monterey. Hugs Rick.
