Poetry Living Life Well

There are now more years

Behind me than before me.

I’ve lived

sometimes through pain,

sometimes through frustration,

sometimes through sheer grit.


Through it all, Jesus was there.

I knew His care as I chose

to make and keep Him

the center of my life within.


With that choice,

I discovered a sense of

Purpose, Peace, Comfort,

And the joy of knowing

My life was and is safely

in His hands yesterday,

today and for all

Flipping back her long silvery-blond hair, Deena frowned at her image in the mirror. In the worn gown of mourning black, she looked far too young, far too vulnerable for her nineteen years.

First, with the death of her mother and now her father, the future stretched out a frightening unknown. Frightening, but for the thread of hope within, not only because of the optimism of youth but also from her steadfast trust in her Heavenly Father--the father who wouldn’t let her down. Or hadn’t until now.

Grimacing, she stared back into the mirror only to freeze as her eyes caught the reflection of her sister staring at her over her shoulder into the mirror. The stunning features of the older sister darkened threateningly.

Flinching, Deena swung about. “Elizabeth...Beth, what are you doing here?”

Struggling for composure, Deena searched the room. “Lord, what does it mean? Beth can’t be here. She’s in America with her husband, isn’t she?”

Even as fear nagged, Isaiah 41:10 flashed in her heart. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: ....”
