COME

"Come to me all you tired and loaded down, and I will
cause you rest." Matt. 11:28

Jesus spoke:

"Come. Draw close.
"Leave your world behind and
"Walk the world of belief in me.

"Especialyl, when worn
"From battles with the Tempter,
"From worry's beatings,
"From paying self-will's dues --
"The tribute that breaks.

"Yes,
"Come to My Refreshing Waters,
"They cleanse the soul of all vineger and salt.

"Yes,
"Come to My Sun,
"I will warm You.

"And,
"Peace will seed in your soul."

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
