The Lord Picked Up My Hand

Placed a pen between my fingers

For ink to touch each page

To share parts of life I lived through to this stage

The pen writes of happiness and sad moments to

Giving strength to others when reader is feeling blue

Maybe after reading something it dries a tear or two 

So they don’t feel alone along lifes journey and long path

Hope a little light gets deep within anothers heart

When the Lord put the pen in my hand

The words flow down unto the page

They are my deepest feeling directly from my heart

The Lord opened up my heart

To have courage to share poems and stories from my writing start

I write about nature for the people that do not get out

To take them to a place of beauty that I can see

I am grateful to the Lord above for giving this gift to me

Writing makes me happy deep down in my soul

I share with others to open hearts of other possibilities

The Lord picked up my hand and I started to write

Will continue to help others with my writings

That is my plight till the Lord shuts out my light!

The Lord made me a writer

When he put the pen in my hand

My greatest love

Is a peice of paper and pen in my hand
