My Butterfly World

 

dedicated to Reason A. Poteet

a dear friend of mine said it best
she knew I had passed the test
others struggling with transformation
God gave me an amazing revelation
through these simple words I share
I pray they know You are there
I only write of what I know
your mercy and grace upon them bestow
I understand their hurt and pain
they have so much to gain
please help them to forgive
so they may eternally live
I may never see them face to face
encourage them to win the race
it’s not for me to gain recognition
I pray for complete fruition
Lord God of you I beseech
teach me how to reach and teach
the caterpillars in my butterfly world

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.
