Strolling alone

on a shady and unpaved road

is VERY hard on these weak legs,


I always liked to walk with Him.

Wish He was here now.

Just Him here would bring rest

to my weary heart.

Wish I could do all I used to do . . .

but my soul is young though my body not so much.

Maybe HE could still . . .

I stood a  moment,

gathered my thoughts,

and felt His hand squeeze mine!

In my distraction,

I didn’t notice He was there all along waiting and loving me!

So easy to set aside worries in daylight, but those pests do torment at night. I’ve taken to prayer in their midst, but when they shout too loud I seek Christian broadcasting, and rest in it, and the Lord has led me each night this week to the perfect verse to touch my heart and soul and assure me “I AM” Here’s last night’s – a favorite!
