To T, my inspiration and joy.


My Daughter
My Teacher,
You're painting a picture
The brief
'A Lesson For Life'!
Commissioned alone
By Almighty God,
And wrought
On a canvas,
Of Love.

You add to it
Daily,
Splashes of Joy!
Bright and luminous
Thrilling my soul,
And I learn to rejoice
By your daily example,
Of infinite joy
In life
That is simple.

Amidst all the frenzy
You paint on,
With Peace.
Soothing and tranquil
Your spirit is gentle.
And as you lie down to sleep
Still and serene,
I praise your creator
And true peace
Is mine.

I view and I treasure
The difficult strokes,
Of Patience, so poignantly
Born of adversity.
Hands slowly reaching
A toy or a treasure
Only to drop it,
Over and over.
And oftimes my heart
Is heavy and aching
As, for you my child
I'm inwardly weeping,
But I look and I see
The joy on your face,
As the meaning of patience
Is brought to the piece.

To this delicate work
Is added some Kindness,
Compassion and warmth
Are the essence of you!
Your innocent trust
And total dependency,
Evoke loving kindness
In all of your family,
Striking a chord
With their fragile humanity.
Yes, colours of kindness,
Mingle with love.

And running throughout
Is pure Gold
Of Faithfulness,
Constant, enduring,
Beginning to end.
And I ponder the goodness
Of God
Who made you,
Who loves and keeps
And daily sustains you.
Then I am reminded
To faithful remain.

Oftimes this picture
Takes away
My breath, as it's beauty
Deepens each day.
A life-long project
A gift like none other,
I'm fully aware
That the colours may differ.
Some days more vibrant
Other days paler
But always a work
Which I'll treasure,
Forever.

And as we sit
And laugh together,
At no one and nothing
Much in particular,
Than to celebrate life
And our joy in each other.
I'm humbled and honoured
That you,
Are my daughter.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Your words reach deep, into the soil of my heart, and are used by the Potter to form this clay anew. I learn to rejoice By your daily example, Of infinite joy In life That is simple Should not these words be true of my own life? Joy...in the simple things of life each day is filled with. Amidst all the frenzy You paint on, With Peace. I lack that! I long for that! I will now rest in the peace He gives me ... the peace that is His own. How your words minister to sojourning hearts. God bless you.
