I could sit and watch the Duty Ferry near Enterprise, La., slowly haul anxious, hurried travelors across the Ouchita River all day.

Sometimes it seems like I'm being sucked along through life
The time trickles on by like I'm an old limb on a river
Just floating along...the river pushing and pulling everything
But I keep coming back to You...I have no other place to go

Sometimes, when I am driving down the road
Or catching catfish at the lake, I think to myself
As I stare up into the clouds, that maybe if I just cry out Your Name
You could hear me, and You could come to me...through the clouds

I'm such a kid...I know that I probably sound insane
Who knows...maybe I am...but I feel what I feel
Talking to You is one of my favorite things to do
Thanks for Your patience with me

This is very touching, something I'm sure many of us can identify with. We should always go to Him with the faith of a child. Wonderful poem, Eddie!

A refreshing write. Kind of made me homesick.

I do that a lot myself, Pastor Eddie: I talk a lot to the Lord about things. Magnificent write; well done!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, and Happy, blessed New Year to you and yours! Never forget the REAL reason for CHRISTmas: JESUS CHRIST!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)
