I am smiling today With childlike bliss As lavender blooms Like fairies dressed For a party we missed Are outside my window Gently ushering in The fragrance of hope Like an enchanted kiss For perhaps there is Another celebration Come what may..
Once again I was blessed with an opportunity to write a poem and prayer for the Bishop’s College Past Teachers’ reunion, which was held in January this year. Here is the acrostic poem TEACHERS
Dear Lord, You walked among the people, teaching them and lighting the way for all of us. We are humbled and honored to share this title of Teacher with You. We are grateful for the call You have placed on our hearts. And we thank You for allowing us to do great things among Your children. Lord, we harken again to Your calling – however big or small the task may be, we keep our hearts open to serve You with the guidance You provide. And as we walk into the unknown that tomorrow holds for everyone, we are confident in Your love that will always light the way. We ask for Your blessing for all of us and for every heart we touch – may Your glory, always shine through. Amen
I have been writing poems and putting them in cards and frames since I was a kid. Giving these as gifts, I find that most people remember or still have a poem they received. One that I particularly like to gift is the poem Equilibrium. This is my favorite inspirational poem in my collection, and I am sharing it again as we get close to the holidays.
