ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Cast off in the elderly pool.
But I won’t succumb to a life being still,
When my faith in God must rule.
My fragile body may not win the race
Bifocals now help me see.
But God can transform a tired old face
And bring healing with each bended knee.
My children are grown, what’s there to do?
A life once bustling with nonstop routines
Must be softened to birth a more flexible view;
Rekindling old projects lost in my dreams.
Hands coarse from scrubbing too many floors,
Still hold tender memories to share.
God-given wisdom unlocked the doors,
Guiding me through when life wasn’t fair.
My heart still blossoms as this old vessel wilts,
Still yearning to love and win a lost friend.
To taste God’s grace without feeling guilt;
Marinating each day with a joyful Amen!
There’s no date that tells me it’s time to resign,
I’ll craft a new plan to fit God’s desires,
Tackling each task and refreshing my mind,
Till my earthly soul fades but never expires.
