Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

God's Will

For he knows of his joy
And his glory
And still longs to belong

waiting for Christmas
the child
praying for the healing
of a loved one

the desolation of the mother
for the lost little one

the conviction and desparation
of a father who has lost his only son

Three crosses on a hill
three was a conviction (completion)
of God's will

    We are in God's hands and if we believe and do our best, that's all He asks for. Nicely written. (Report) Reply

    What constitutes the strength of a Man as a crown of Creation:
    Resolution, Conviction, will-power, resignation and submission to Divine-Will...
    there can never be the report of All-Good every time, in all phases of life...whatever the time least God IS there.........enough consolation and moral support..... (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
