By Belinda

Friends, it is a late night and an early morning awaits! So, I'm digging out an old journal and sharing a poem I wrote in 1982. It isn't a very good poem, but God can use even a very bad poem! Maybe. :)

Christ never did the obvious,
The natural thing to do.
He did things so amazing--
And startling, and new!

If you would tread his footsteps,
Then wear his shoes of peace,
Seek out his Word and love it,
Begin and never cease,

To hear what he is saying,
To those who love his law,
Seek his way, not the world's way,
For different they both are.

Down here we have no city,
We seek one that's to come.
We're citizens of Glory,
And one day we'll reach Home.

'Til then we'll walk with Jesus,
And love him more each day,
And let our lights keep shining,
As we live the "Jesus Way."

These are lyrics waiting for someone to write the accompanying music.

Oh, Marilyn, thank you. Funny, but I brought home a Judds CD from the library. I don't listen to a lot of country music but I do enjoy their singing. I just finished listening to their last song on the CD, "Guardian Angel." The tune would fit well if I added a chorus. I never thought of it being a song. Perhaps God will inspire the tune in me or someone else. Thank you for the great suggestion.
