Jeremiah 10:23

As I awoke to a brand-new day I asked Him to direct my path To protect and guide, lest I should fall And keep me free, from grief and wrath In haste, I departed on an errand Forgot - if I, had locked the door Returned and found that all was well Now,- to that sale, at the discount store About a mile down the interstate "One Lane Closed," the sign read A mass of crumpled steel I saw I, - could have been, there instead The sale now ended, when I arrived "They're all gone", the clerk advised For that item, I had waited long Now, I would have to improvise I heard an old friend was confined At a rest-home, in the next town A call revealed, a quarantine imposed I'd have to wait, before driving down I had tried to do what I thought best But obstacles altered what I chose As I analyzed events of the day The picture I, began to compose Watching the evening news, I learned An interstate accident, with one dead And a recall on the item, I had sought Injuries had occurred, - the reporter said So, - back to that morning prayer - Did He supply my wants, - - or needs ? Consolation I found, "alone" - with Him As I read, - Jeremiah, ten: twenty three Colan L Hiatt = 02-24-13 © All Rights Reserved
