Another week has passed. I sat out in the sun this afternoon and read some Junior Guides stories. The house stays cool and the sun felt good. There are people walking by almost any time of the day. They are the kind that know that walking is good for them to keep from getting feeble.
Last night when I got ready for bed I was in the writing mood. I seldom get that way any more. I just started writing, not knowing where I was going with it. As I wrote it just sort of unfolded ahead of me. It is quite simple, but maybe someone can get some encouragement or a blessing from it.


When I was a little child so many years ago
I learned there was a God above beyond the stars that glow,
Who loves and cares for each of us who follow where He leads.
We simply need to pray to Him and tell Him all our needs.
He always hears our faintest cry when troubles ʽround us fall.
When things donʼt go as we had planned, Heʼs not concerned at all.
Because He knows whatʼs best for us, He will not allow
Our spirits to be overwhelmed when we before Him bow.

Sometimes we go through tunnels, so fearful and so dark.
We feel like we are all alone - like we have missed the mark.
As day by day and step by step, we blindly move along;
But when we reach out for His hand, He bids us sing a song.
Although we, in our darkest hour, are filled with fear and dread,
We sense His presence, take His hand, then see a light ahead.
We keep our eyes fixed on that light as brighter it becomes..
Soon we will bound out into light, (point upward with our thumbs!)

Even when weʼre old and weak, our side Heʼll not forsake.
He tenderly provides for us. Our burdens, He will take.
It does no good to worry so, be fretful or complain.
Completely put your trust in Him. More blessings you will gain.
We donʼt always know just why He leads us as He does;
But through it all we realize Heʼs closer than He was.
So praise Him from a grateful heart for blessings He bestows.
Heʼs pleased when we acknowledge them. Relationship thus grows
Until we come into His kingdom, walking hand in hand,
Enjoying endless pleasures in that bright and happy Land
