ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
(An aging egret seeks shelter in the Reeds)
As my old body tells me that it’s time to settle down,
I wonder of the time that’s left to me.
That even though my zest is gone, my eyes and ears are dim,
My aches and pains will never let me be,
But when we look at Jesus and the gift He brings to us,
I can’t hold back the joy that sets me free.
His Word is filled with promises that He will always keep,
He gave His life to save both you and me.
I wonder if I’d know Him when He was a baby small,
The Son of God who died without one plea,
He rose again and conquered death for all eternity.
My faith in His provision keeps me strong,
To share His loving message, with those He sends to hear me,
The Son of God and man will carry on.
