HERE THEN THE BLESSING

HERE THEN THE BLESSING Please come visit me Here, then go in Your glory forth. I’ll treasure the gifts You bring to me — the graced Promises of caring and the song. Do visit me before Another dream comes along. The hours of this night Have unfurled as I lay Restless and alone — Watching my candle flicker, Throwing deep-gray shadows Over and across my room… As my sleepy prayers stutter on, Hoping You will come With Your fulfilling love and light, So sweetly, peacefully, My soul might rest again… And I go on, thankful, and Renewed into the coming dawn. ———————————————————- (c) sally young eslinger /6/22/ Thanks be to God……..

Your imagry of the flickering candles and gray shadows speak to the futility of trying to find sleep when beset with worry, but the return of dawn and hope brought peace, this is so moving~
