A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Longing to Please you, Lord


Longing to Please you.
~*~
With all my heart, Lord
I long to please You.
But too often I lack wisdom
Or am shackeled by indecision
Or deterred by incalculables.
Enable me, Lord.
To relax in your love
Released and radiantly confident
That my longing to please you
Pleases you most.

Dear Deby, I do hope that you are feeling better now. Thanks for sharing the poem as well.

I was wondering if you got my postcard as well... I sent it some weeks ago and I would like to know how fast the French postal service is. Have a blessed week ahead and congratulations on your new grandson! Blessings...
