My Journey

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." ____________________________
I find great comfort in my faith so even in times of terrible tragedy it is my safe harbor, my refuge. I am never alone if I have the Lord and Jesus. I believe there is a Heaven after this life. To think otherwise is devastating to imagine. I picture my loved ones above greeting me at that golden gate. When I am broken the Lord carries me, when afraid he holds my hand. Often when I am weeping he strokes my hair. The Lord cannot change what mankind has set into motion but I am sure that he weeps with us and is there if you call his name in prayer. I will not try to push my faith on others, that is their journey to find. We are each on a journey, each on a path, and each must decide what path to follow . . . birds chirp songs from trees new life blooms each day on earth- a moment of time ___________________________ July 7, 2020 Poetry/Haibun/My Journey Copyright Protected, ID 20-1266-603-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the PREMIER contest, My Faith sponsor, Regina Riddle Second Place
