'One Day at a time, ' #1


Dear Lord Jesus meek and mild, I am so glad that I am your child.
You are my heavenly Father, and it's true that at the age of thirteen, I dedicated my entire life to you.

When I was the age of nine, you saved me and the members of my family.
And I trust you watch over them for me. When I was nine, I ran around our church shouting, 'I am free.' But at the age of thirteen, 'a huge weight was lifted off of me.' I was crying and laughting at the same time! That's when you filled me again, with your Holy Spirit's love for all of eternity. Someday, in presence I shall forever be.

Someday I shall humbly bow myself down before your heavenly throne.
'Welcome home my good and faithful servant enter into the kingdom
which I have prepare for you.' 'I have been waiting for you my
beloved child to welcome you home. No more shall you roam.'
Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Yes, I was saved at the age of: nine, promised to serve Him all of my life at the age of eleven. And promised to be His disciple at the age of thirteen. I was baptized when I was in my early twenties.

I began serving God through poetry writing about 1984.
I have sung in a few church choirs; I sing in Faith Lutheran's choir.

I sing for The Sun Shine Singers at the Carl Gipson Senior Center, in Everett Washington. My sister Lynn and I are members of our
local Old Time and Country Music Assoication.
No I am not tooting my own horn! 'I can do all things through
Christ Jesus; who strenghts me.'

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
