I WISH

I would be like the radiant stars out in space
Shining bright; guiding others along their way.
I would be like the lilies in the valleys and fields,
Just blooming and growing, needing no words to say.

I would be like the moon in the indigo sky,
Reflecting the light of Your glorious Son.
I would be like the sun as it journeys the heavens
And chases the darkness from everyone.

I would soar on the wings of the splendid eagle,
High in the heavens, above the discord and strife.
I would be like the delicate snow-white dove,
A spirit of joy, hope and love in another one’s life.

I would be as a child in its Father’s strong arm,
So sheltered, carefree, peaceful and still.
Living in trust, embraced by His perfect love,
Being secure, growing in faith and doing His Will.

Loved that poem! It is only recently that I have come to enjoy poetry. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I love to find other Mennonites who have blogs! I will be adding you to my reader and will be back again!

Hey Karin,

I've been thinking about doing a Christmas playlist too! :) But I haven't even begun. Are you having trouble finding any good songs to upload? I am always looking for different songs to put on my current playlist and so many are not there. I am not savvy enough to find them in another location and then bring them into playlist. Do you know how to do that? Good hearing from you. How's the weather in your neck of the woods? Lord Bless, Cathy
