Readers’ Reactions


I tell them Lord, but they don’t hear.
They don’t care whether You shed a tear.
I show them Lord, but they don’t see.
They don’t know it didn’t come from me.
Maybe it’s me that doesn’t get through.
If that is so, give them someone new.
I know I can’t ever fir the part.
I can’t reach into their heart.

I love the sounds of the country and the music it can bring.
The dogs lying in the sun are lost in the deep.
To watch them in this summer breeze make me want to fall asleep. When I realize how I have been so blessed,
All my troubles become no more than a pest.

After a woman lies in a travailing pain,
Her heart is overwhelmed with joy.
Knowing her struggle has ended,
As she holds her newborn boy.
When a heart is filled with gladness,
It can’t help but begin to sing.
When a long day has finally ended,
Comes hope of what tomorrow will bring.
