    My husband came across the writings of Granny James in 2004, in the Ozark County Library in Gainesville, Missouri. I was looking through the poetry section and a plain black book with mailbox-type letters displaying the word, POEMS, had been placed on the front of the book. Of course, I had to check out this treasure. On the way back to Texas, there were tears of joy, & from simply being touched by this magnificent woman. Ms. James passed away in 1979 and is buried near Dawt, Missouri, where she grew up. I hope you enjoy her wonderful writings! -) . Respectfully, dawn

Then tell me, oh, pray tell me
  What would become of my soul?

God gave me a being

I've lived close to nature, and God every day. And His hands in all things I could see, while blind, I promised, if my hands were spared,  
God's servant, I would faithfully be.

I've blundered, and floundered, but God is my light.  And his student, I mean ever to be. That through His Teachings, I may be able to tell…
