Fireflies and Starry Sky


there's peace in my world tonight

as I gaze out my window at the light

fireflies twinkle close to the ground

my ear turns toward cricket's sound

gentle rustle of leaves

as a breeze tickles the trees

in the heavens, stars all aglow

cows in the meadow moan soft and low

conscience is clear, mind is at ease

I fold my hands and bend my knees

here by my bed I give God credit

remember Jesus ...  He's the one who said it....

"I have told you these things, so that in me

you may have peace.  In this world

you will have trouble.  But take heart!

I have overcome the world."

John 16:33

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.
