Get Beyond the Dread

 Get Beyond the Dread

early morning experiences help shape the day
remember each morning to pray
 get beyond the dread
pray before you get out of bed

 early morning drive to church
your church family won’t leave you in the lurch

 get beyond the dread
worshiping with others will get you ahead

 early morning drive to work
a right relationship with God keeps you from going berserk

 get beyond the dread
talk to God and He’ll hear what you’ve said

 early morning before your first cup
remember why the Communion bread and drink we sup

 get beyond the dread
remember this poem you’ve read


2 Thessalonians 3:13
And as for you, brothers (and sisters), never tire of doing what is right.

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.
