God Lead Me

God lead me where You want me.
Show me the way to go.
Lead me on this journey
To offer You my soul.
I am weak and weary
You alone know the way.
Guide me, guard me, show me.
By Your side help me to stay.
The road is long and narrow
The dangers swift and sure
But I know that if I hold Your hand,
All will be safe and pure

Lessons From a Weed

I tried to rid my yard
Of weeds and other things.
Complaining of the work
And all the mess Spring brings.
I pulled up every dandelion
The next day there were more.
I could not understand
What were these things for
And then I stopped and looked
And realized the lesson at hand.
How could I be so blind.
How could I not understand?
We must take a lesson
From these silly little weeds.
And trust God to plant us
And take care of all our needs.
They have an inner strength.
And shrink not from a fight .
And gladly share their beauty.
With all their simple might.
I no longer feel the desire
To toss them all away.
I enjoy their sunny faces
And thank God for them in my day.

Starting On A Journey

Starting on a journey

Of heart, mind, soul, and life.

Beginning this Lenten Season

To leave behind foolish strife.

Struggling to follow

A saint who showed the way

Help me to walk dear St. Francis

With you in simplicity each day.
