A Freckled Face Child


Once so happy and care free

Playing in her new and exciting world

She danced in her bare feet.


Challenges were only a speckle

She was a ray of sunshine

A face sprinkled with freckles.


Skipping through life, carefree

Not a worry in the world

Complete trust in her Lord.


As she continued to thrive

Taking each new step in stride

She had to learn to say good-bye.


Challenges, once only a speckle

Worries are now her new freckles

They cover her face of sunshine.


Leaning on her Lord for strength

A freckled face child,

Pray’s for a new day to dance.

Excellent write. One day we're carefree, than trouble sets it. Life would be easier if we look to the Lord to help take those troubles away.
