Hi, I sometimes call myself the Christian Poetess...I am a wife of a wonderful husband, a mother, grandmother and great grandmother...My passion is to write poems that lead others to the gospel of Christ...It is a gift I have received after becoming a Christian in 1983...I started writing in 1986 on how I truly feel with pen and paper in hand, through my own experiences and through what the Bible teaches us in life...I make a decision to follow God each new day through His beloved Son...Life has not been easy but Jesus has been my rock to help me make a stand in what I believe to be the narrow way of life through our Lord Jesus Christ...I pray these poems and my blog will be an encouragement to you and that they will lift you up and help you along the way...God bless each of you with a new day and with many blessings.

Thank You, Lord

It was freezing cold outside.  Below freezing with cold icy rain that covered the steps and iced over the roads.  No going anywhere on this cold night of winter.

Living in a trailer makes it drafty and cold for anyone to keep warm.  I'll put up plastic around the windows so, when the wind howls I won't feel it as much on this extremely cold night.  I could turn on the oven to warn things up a bit.  

I need to make sure to let the faucets drip so, the pipes do not freeze tonight.  I hear it sometimes works and keeps them open until the weather turns off a little warmer. We can try it and it just might work.  

It's just you and me tonight, Lord.  How about we spend some time together.  It can be rough when you live alone.  It's a special night and I do not need to fret but be as comfortable as I can and snuggle into the Word of God.  Jesus, says He promises me that “He will never leave me or forsake me”.  I could use Your company tonight, Lord.  Stay close beside me during this time of isolation.  (Hebrews 13:5)  KJV

He promises “to heal the broken heart and bind up their wounds”.  It's a little like being left alone to be refreshed in His Word.  The Holy Spirit is my comforter and helps me to realize that “I can do all things through Christ Jesus”.  Sometimes that's to face my fears of being alone.  “There is a time and a season for everything”.  Through the seasons or even the weather. (Isaiah 61:1) (Luke 4:18) (Philippians 4:13) (Ecclesiastes 3:1)  KJV

I seem to complain about the weather without thinking of how it sounds to others.  It does not glorify Christ and I am simply complaining to God for the way He is handling things that are in His control.  Forgive me Lord when I become dissatisfied with everyday life.  Everyone seems to complain about the weather.  Never happy or content with what comes around the bend. Help me to remember to be thankful for what I do have.  “Godliness with contentment is great gain”.  (I Timothy 6:6)  KJV

Thank you, for a roof over my head to keep me warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  Thank you, for the food on the table that You have given for me to nourish my body.  Thank you, for my health and how you have helped me time and time again.  Thank you, for all the ones who are there when I am in need.  Thank you, for the freezing rain that kills off all the germs in the air and keeps things brisk and alive.  Thank you, Lord, even for the faucet that can drip that gives me water to drink.  A faucet that drips sometimes can be very annoying when your trying to sleep but I trust You Lord for all my needs and even when I am alone, I am never alone. Thank you, Lord.  (Ephesians 5:20)

A fictional story...

I could pray the same prayer about being alone but in my case, a house. This is a beautiful writing. As a suggestion, you might tie a strip of rag to the faucet, and it would drip on that and you wouldn't hear it. But then, you did say this was fiction.

Hi Sunlite, Thank you for stopping by. I like the suggestion about the faucet and how you added the prefix. It made me smile. The thoughts are very kind. In God's Speed...
