Monsoon rains tapped her windows, slightly raised
Drifting breezes tagged the sweet scents of pine
Stirring and stretching she reached for her journal
Then penned a prayer to her King, divine

Thank you God for raindrops falling
For guiding me through recent trials
For melting every anxious moment
For loving me in doubtís denials

Answers exceeded pain-filled requests
New joy embellishes unfolding days
I praise you for the morningís glory
And for painting evening skies ablaze

Thanks for caring, though I kept stalling
My invitation--long overdue
But my heartís now open, please come in
Each day created is signed by You

No longer will blindness veil my eyes
To everyday beauty along my path
I thank you for your patience, God
My stubbornness was spared your wrath

My every breath is undeserved
Your kindness fills my lungs with air
I want to live by your commands
Strengthen me, for this world ís unfair

Blessings arrive in gift-wrapped moments
Garnished with laughter, warm smiles and touch
Lives criss-cross quite unexpected
Each script You write, I need to trust

My life is Yours, my King and Savior
Help shut my ears to toxic talk
With You I choose to spend my days
In faith, discerning which roads to walk


The gentle rain slowed to a drizzle
Outside her panes, just whispering drips
Gently she closed her book of prayers
As the dawn was winking, she blew a kiss
