Good friends and family continue to care for us.
Your love is expressed in so many ways,
And is as balm to my troubled soul.
Deep anxiety still racks me often,
Especially as night falls;
But God reassures me of His constancy,
And I know His presence;
His sure grip.
Days are warm now, in my Jackie's garden,
I listen as the birds sing,
And watch as each new day brings -
Fresh bloom delight, to pots and borders.
I wrap the moments of solitude around me,
They defend my spirit.
Knowing nothing yet of what more is to come,
I draw on His strength -
And your concern -
Often, and always.
