My Mom is still being a Mom from heaven encouraging me.  I found this poem in some old photo albums.  Who knew that she ws a poet also.  I now know that the gift was passed on to me....How awesome is our God!

Mom’s Poem


It rains, it rains

The wind blows just the same - the hail knocks against the window pane - I was afraid of the storm -

Because I was alone - But I know God is with me when life seems up side down -God will not let me

drown - I believe in God, when life seems unfair I know that He is there - In that hour I can hear God‘s

Voice saying don’t let go   - I can also hear God saying IAM -the storms in your life are in my hands

I will go around you if you would hold my Hands - when the day is dark and dreary and no body seems to

Care - whisper a little prayer - God will hear you when you pray

He will even brighten your day - Just trust Him when things don’t go right

When you are alone in the night - He will hear your cry - and wipe the tears from your eyes

And when the daylight appears -He will be right there - to see you through the day if you

Would only wait and pray

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
