Can anyone see me
Here in this shel
So small and confined;
A place called my self?


Does anyone perceive
All that life is,
It’s deepest meaning;
Does someone know this?


And how about dying
And where we go;
All that have fallen;
Does anyone know?


“Yes,” says the Lord of life,
“I see it all,
No matter how grand,
How common or small.”


“I love each one deeply,
Close to my heart.
I never forsake;
I’ll never depart.”


“All living and dying
Is in my care;
Whatever happens,
I’m already there.”


“And even the mysteries
Only I see,
Are wisely governed
In my sovereignty.”


“Now rest in my strong arms;
Leave it to me.
I’ll love and keep you.
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, 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.
