Lord, let me hear your song today
With my head pressed against your chest
May I hear your heart beating
The sound of your breathing
Feel the warmth of your embrace.
For I know you are singing
A beautiful melody
The song of victory
If only I could still my mind
And just listen patiently
I know I would hear your song.
I know I would hear you singing.
I really needed this today! I wrote this back in 2008 and sent it via email to my daughter. She was cleaning out her emails and sent it back to me knowing I was having a difficult time.
My father is in the hospital since yesterday and I have been challenged by my mother wanting to drive. Today was easier than yesterday and I believe it was because I asked for prayer for my stress level. She was calmer and so was I.
There is much I have to learn about aging parents and the best way to introduce change. Stubbornness and independence runs in the family. The first lesson I am learning is to ask for help and take it one step at a time.
