*Pastor’s Note: Here is another beautiful poem from my long-time Sister-In-Christ, Joan Adams Burchell. As a reminder, she has a website, Along Poetry Road that is still up and running with a lot of great poetry. When you have a chance, stop by and check her selections out. You will be blessed!
As always, Glory to God for all of the creative gifts He gives so bountifully and for those who use those gifts. God Bless!

The man who died upon the cross
Walks with me each day.
His Wisdom, Light, Love and Peace
Is always guiding my way.
I gave Him my heart many years ago
And through each day we talk.
He holds me up when I am weak –
Gives me the strength to walk.
PEACE above all understanding
Is His gift to me.
LIGHT surrounds me, from this man Jesus,
So that I may see.
He colours my days and nights with LOVE –
See His canvas all around?
He guides the brush of mother nature –
Artwork sure to astound.
He gave me life when all hope was gone;
I praise Him every day.
LOVE to heal – heal with LOVE;
Jesus showed us the way.
