Keep Looking Up

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

          Life presents many challenges from birth to the grave

          But lift your thoughts to God above,

          He promises to save.

          God fashioned us in our mother’s womb

          So I am certain He had a plan.

          We were designed in His own image-

          To serve our fellow man.

          When I was a child, I thought as a child-

          Striving always to please-

          It took a lot of challenges

          To set my heart at ease.

          My heartfelt wish, as I was growing up,

          Was to be a caring soul.

           I desired all humanity

          To make loving others their goal.

           I know it is unrealistic

           To expect Heaven here on earth  –

           But wouldn’t it be wonderful

           If every soul felt its worth?

           Reach out and “touch someone”-

           A word of encouragement, or a smile will do.

           Your kindness will be rewarded-

    It will all come back to you.

    How encouraging it is to bond with other Christians. Thank you for your kind responses and I especially appreciate the prayers lifted up for Janice, my daugthter. I am still waiting to hear whether the doctors will proceed with the surgery today.

      Janice just dropped by on her way home from the surgeon’s office. It was heartwarming to see her (even though it pained me to see her hobbling around). I gave her a cane to use that will eleviate some of the pain. It hurrts me that they can;t schedule her surgery until Tuesday.

        Poor Janice. It always hurts when our children suffer.
