In Praise of God I look to you for love and grace, Trusting belief in you I place. Please keep us safe within your sight. I feel your presence day and night. I try to follow golden rules. Your precious words are my jewels. My life I live within your light. I feel your presence day and night. The Ten Commandments are my guide, To my children I did confide. They know your truth to my delight, I feel your presence day and night. I’ve had my days of fears and woe But feel protected and I know The love you share is pure and right. I feel your presence day and night. It’s all about the love we share That helps us to become aware Of needs of others and their plight. I feel your presence day and night. I pray for peace, my worldly goal That each and ev’ry sacred soul Will feel the essence of your might, To feel your presence day and night. 1-10-20 ~First Place~ In Praise of God Poetry Contest Sponsored by Kim Rodrigues ~Third Place~ STRAND SELECT 10,any form ,any theme Poetry Contest Sponsored by Brian Strand

Wonderful rhymes and cadence, which are your gift. The message really spoke to me. What a gift that God's presence is always with us, day or night, comfort or pain, sick or healthy. This was a great shot in the arm for my faith today, dear friend.

An old man once said to himself: "bestow unto me the blessings of an unshakeable faith...and I would eagerly exchange all the riches of Solomon". Many blessings unto you also, Connie. Your friend. :) john

Wow, thank you Tom. I haven’t been too active lately because of my daughter being in the hospital. She is doing okay and will remain there until after her baby is born, but she is only 6 months along. xxoo
