Cowgirl for the Lord

Cowgirl for The Lord

I may not dress the same as you
In my jeans and cowgirl boots
But riding the range on my Daddy's land
Is a life that really suits.

In my flannel shirt and cowgirl hat
I can lasso as good as anyone can.
And no matter what the weather is like
I can round up the herd from across the land.

The big open country before me
I scout around for the lost.
I'm not talking about cattle or horses now
But the lost sheep bought at a great cost.

The lost sheep belong to my Daddy.
He searches for them everywhere.
If I could bring just one safely back home
Oh, how much my Daddy does care.

No matter how large the flock,
If just one has wandered away,
My Daddy grieves and is waiting back home
For the one who dared to stray.

If you happen to be in the saddle
And stumble onto one of Daddy's lost sheep,
Reach down and give it a helping hand.
Forgiveness is within its reach.

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
