I would like to introduce Rita Appel this week in my guest blog. Rita joined our writer’s club (Women Writing for Christ – WWC) a few years ago and captured our hearts with her poems. I love her enthusiast spirit. It hasn’t come easy for her. She’s had many challenges in her life, but God has been faithful. Rita has used her pain to craft poems to help others. This particular one came out of a challenge at her workplace. I chose it because I can be a worrier and I’m sure many of you are too. Listen to her words.
Thanks Rita for sharing your heart with us. Please let her know how her poem touched you by posting a comment. Enjoy!
Do Not WorryThe day will start and the day will end Yesterday is gone, tomorrow yet to come Look to tomorrow, drawing always From past experience, but live today Today could be light and bright Or dark and gloomy, you decide We can only choose the paths Not the destinations Paths, choices, destinations Always trusting in what’s right Living, loving, doing Always moving onward, never back One choice, one step, one day Ever focused on the Father Loving, caring, guiding He will always be there As we trust in His strength, We learn to hope Knowing that as we travel Some day in Him we will Rest.
