Accecptance, Security and Love

   Acceptance, Security and Love

As a child sometimes I felt
like an ugly duckling.
I was very short for my age,
sickly and was not expected to live.

As a child with Asthma and pnemonia,
I was absent much of time in school
I spent most of the time in bed.
I prayed and prayed that God would
make me well.

Even as a child in God's love, I felt
accepted and secure. 
Over the years, I did gain strength,
regained my health, and went on
to become a bride and mother.

In my heart, I've never grown up.
Asthma and allergies still bother me.
But...I'll not forget that first year in school
I give thanks to God for His love, security,
And acceptance still today.

"His love endures forever." (Psalm 136:1 through 26)
