God walks with us

God walks with us...
He scoops us up in
His arms or simply sits
with us in silent
strength until we cannot
avoid the awesome
recognition that yes,
even now, He is here.

When I was 16 (half my lifetime ago; yes I am young; but I am the oldest I've ever been right now, as I am apt to say) I worked at a camp in Ohio for the summer. I washed dishes, set tables, cleaned cabins, helped campers go swimming (the camp was for physically and mentally impaired children and adults, depending on the week). One of my friends, who I have lost touch with, CM, wrote the lines posted above.

I still have the small faded paper that I re-wrote them on, I keep it in my icon corner. I have always liked these words and thought it was time to share them.

Those are just beautiful words! They really touched me. Sometimes I think that with everything going on in the world we forget that God is with us every step of the way. Thanks so much for sharing these words!

Your welcome. Yes. They have comforted me for years...

I am glad they can be of help - I have been receiving so much encouragement from everyone in the blog world - it is great that I can give encouragement in return!
