'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!
John 3; 16-18

Poet's Notes about The Poem
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.'
