It can be an exclamation of Frustration or one of joy!


 

Why me, Lord is what Mama used to say

Whenever things did not go her way

I spilled milk on her newly waxed floor

Or came in but didn’t close the door

If my sister came home late

Because she lost track of time while on a date

When faced with any quandary or source of aggravation

 “Why Me, Lord” Mom would exclaim in frustration

When I grow up and found a love whom I could marry

It is interesting to me that this exclamation was my query

Then, when I became a Dad to my three kids

“Why me, Lord” are the words I said

However I was asking why he blessed me as he did

Why me, Lord can be a term or expression

That reflects a tone of pure frustration

But it can also be expression of appreciation

“Why me, Lord.”  Why do you bless me like you do?

I have loved ones and I prosper and it’s all because of you

How is it, Lord that you forgive me so repetitively?

When I tend to fall short or fail you so constantly

Yet, you seem to dwell on my successes and always tend to encourage me

I know not why you love me like you do

But I know why I love you

You are my Lord and master and my reason to live

So with all my heart and with all my soul please accept the praises that I give

 

Sunny, the long necked giraffe

HALLELUJAH! WHY HE LOVES US LIKE HE DOES IS INDEED A MYSTERY BUT I AM SO GLAD THAT HE DOES AND I DO TRY TO RETURN HIS LOVE TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. A WONDERFUL WORK WITH AN UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE. THANKS FOR SHARING, LOVE AND BLESSINGS, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
