Trusting the Lord and Lady to

Hear and answer your prayers,

Always know everything will be fine;

Never doubt that you are loved.

Keep your eyes and heart

Focused on friends and family.

United in a common background,

Loyalty, love and laughter abound.


This is my entry for One Shot Wednesday and Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday on this Thanksgiving week.  Certainly, I am thankful for such a great forum and group of poets that I get to share my writing with.  Blessings to all this holiday season.
