A Time to Rejoice

A Time to Rejoice


it' s†always a time to rejoice
when someone hears God's voice

God's voice we hear in different ways
to learn His language is like walking in a maze

amazing we think we're on the right track
only to find we have to turn back

turn back to the path straight and narrow
'fore the barbs of sin slice through the marrow

the marrow of a soul is the most sacred part
it takes a long time to learn the language of The Heart

the heart may hear; much harder to understand
when we "get it" life is really grand!!

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.
