Enduring Faith

By Arley Steinhour 042911

Where oh where does a family go,

We used to live right here;

Till the storm came in to blow,

And we quickly lost our cheer.

Thank you God, for your protection,

Without it, we'd be lost;

In the piles of rubble here,

Our lives, the final cost.

You allow, what we endure,

To make us stronger in you;

That our faith be Petra Sure,

And Eternal Reward, so True.

The 'things' that flew away that day,

Can, if needed, we'll replace;

Possession Dross, also flew away,

Without that, we'll have more space.

So, please, dear God, remember our need,

As we start the road of recovery;

Like a garden, we must clean and re-seed,

Better, deeper, loving Faith, devoid of greed.

Help the neighbor, as much as we are able,

Blessing others, more than self;

When we find it, set the dinner table,

With Love, the first thing on shelf.

Praying, as we're working hard,

To let you know we understand;

So we can have a God Filled yard,

And best neighbors in the land.

Please bless us Father, one and all,

As You see us through these tragedies;

Each day, before we hear sleeps call,

May you find us on our knees.

AMEN
