Lawrence S. Pertillar
You Know This Is a 'Somber' Moment?
What is so funny?
Do you know 'where' you are?
'I'm sorry reverand.
I didn't intent to interrupt,
Your call for prayer and worship.
I just felt overwhelmed with blessings.
I'll try to contain my joy.'
You know this is a 'somber' moment?
That's what I don't understand either.
Who knew God would decide...
That 'he who has the last laugh,
Laughs best? '
Would be 'my' experience?
And NOW? !
I had no idea this would be my testimony.
This is God's doings.'
