The Eternal One knew you
In the secret place,
Before anyone had an inkling
That you would be someday.
He gave you good work to do
And made you to reflect His grace,
So that in everything,
You would know His perfect way.


The Eternal One still knows
All  that’s in your heart;
Your thoughts and feelings, wishes and doubt
Your destiny and call.
Each day, His affection flows
His Presence will never depart.
There is no time without
The Loving Lord of all.


And when it is time to go
Home to Love so true,
The Eternal One who planned your birth
Will hold you to His breast.
As you have been known, you’ll know;
As you have been seen, you’ll see too.
Precious one of great worth,
Come now and gladly rest.

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, 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.
