In Your Presence


Lord, I am humbled each and every time
You reveal to me a special verse or rhyme
thank you for opening my eyes
every poem is a gift and a surprise
just an inkling of a thought
tells Satan I won't be bought
he knows with You he can't compete
his every battle will end in defeat
no greater desire can burn in my heart
and from you I never will part
this desire radiates a soft, warm glow
for it is You I yearn to know
in order to embrace Your essence
I must live each day in Your presence

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
