It Takes Time

30 Sep

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

 

Thank you, Lord, for your promises.
Thank you for your loving care.
You satisfy our every need.
Your presence is everywhere.

 

Patience is a trait that takes time to acquire.
It isn’t zapped into our being.
God uses situations as learning tools.
such as waiting for things we are not seeing.

 

It takes time to form relationships-
a bonding of two souls.
Patience is essential
in working toward our goals.

 

There is no substitute for friendship.
It begins with our Lord, above.
What a friend we have in Jesus.
The Cross is the symbol of love.

 

I want to follow in His footsteps
in helping my fellow man.
Even in my old age,
I know my Savior has a plan.

 

Keep looking up, dear friend.
That’s where our future lies.
Our physical body is subject to death-
but our soul never dies!

    What a fantastic photo – I can only imagine how that person (you?) felt at the time the picture was taken. Joy. Fantasy. Freedom? Beautiful. And loved the poem too.
