This is an edited write from about a year ago that is a fitting follow up to "A MESSAGE RECEIVED" which I posted yesterday, December 14, 2009. I looked for the original that I had posted in the Den way back when but couldn't find it. In any event, it is similar to the first posting but changed and edited in several ways. I hope you find inspiration here and enjoy this and may God bless.



Upon all these trails we travel,
Life, at times, can be very hard;
Yet, they lead to eternal life,
The gift offered to all by God.

At times, the trails may get rocky,
As we continue on our quest;
These are the times we must be strong,
When our faith is put to the test.

Put to the test, our faith will be,
As we travel along earth’s trails;
If we keep true faith in our Lord,
There is no way for us to fail.

In God we will find happiness,
Even though friends may let us down;
With our Lord we will find true peace,
Never needing to wear a frown.

Know, through faith, that God always hears,
Trust in Him with all of our heart;
In His way and time, He answers all prayers,
Just as He has from the very start.

Some trails won't be straight or level,
Still, they're lit by Heavenly light;
By the Lord there right by our side,
He makes our trails safe day and night.

But the choice is always up to us,
Of whether we will choose to obey;
It is reflected in all we do,
Also in all of the things we say.

A friendly smile, a thoughtful word,
A soft, caressing, tender touch;
Encouragement in times of need,
As we travel our trails, these mean so much.

As long as we remain true to God, he will remain at our side. The bumps along the way are mere hurdles to test our fortitude, God bless...

Be always safe,

Well said, Paul. A truly inspirational and wisely written poem. Faith gives us strength beyond our knowledge, and we should trust in the Lord to lead us. God's Blessings and Love - Micke

your words sink deeply Paul
beautifully expressed
and the closing verse so very embraceful
with the presence of its impact to others
and also for ourself...a smile is always returned
and love always gives more tenderness
Peace, Love & Blessings
