We Missed You at Church!

We Missed You At Church!


We went to church,

but you weren’t there!

Where you normally sit,

stood an empty chair.


This bliss and joyful person

 wasn’t to be found.

The one who encourages others,

when “the chips are down.”


We hope you hurry back.

 Please make it soon!

Without you, out church

 is like an empty room!


We pray for God’s sunshine

 to brighten your day!

May his spirit guide you… 

Along the way!


May you allow the arms of Jesus

 to hold you.

He sees your life,

and really knows you!


May he bless every footstep

 that you take.

For it’s people like you

 that we appreciate!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
