WATCHING THEY SAW

simeon_and_jesus

Simeon held to a promise
That he would see God’s Son;
That he would not die but live
To hold the Holy One.

Simeon watched for Him each day,
In prayerful meditation,
Until in his arms there lay
The Savior of nations.

Anna watched and waited too;
She served God day and night,
Till she saw Messiah who
Would set the world right.

When we watch and pray, we know
We will see Jesus too;
He opens our hearts to show
Himself to me and you.

Seek the Lord who makes you whole
And you will surely see
Him the Lover of your soul,
King through Eternity.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
