Listening Is Loving

In this fast~crazy and busy world,
there are many words that are said.
Words of joy and words of pain,
echoing from the walls of life.
Many have said they heard me,
did they really?
A call came in,
my dad had been hurt.
I needed to get there now,
I lived far away.
So I threw things in a bag,
I needed to get to the airport.
I prayed all the way,
God if you must take him that will be OK.
I just wanted to see him one more time,
I had arrived~he was alive.
A miracle had taken place,
prayers were answered.
I can always count on You hearing me,
for you always listen to my every word.
In my prayers,
Your Listening Is Loving that comes through.

Dear Paula, this is such an amazing example of faith. I had a similar experience too. My Dad passed away two days after I was able to come from another country. My Mom said - He was waiting for you. I was fortunate to spend last two days with him. Love and blessings, My Dear Friend. Thank you so much for reading my poems.
