Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 11/20/2011

We have not stayed in the same place with our roommates of a year and a half for longer than a couple of hours at a time since Tuesday. After a year and a half of sharing a small amount of space with people, that feels weird. We might get used to it, but it still feels weird. The good news is that we are pretty much all moved … into our separate apartments across town from each other (it is just the way it worked out, honest!). In any event, missing each other is the inspiration for posting today’s poem. I have a hope you will enjoy!

AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Remember Who to thank for all of your blessings (and trials)!

too long away
daniel m  klem

i spent too much time
trying to please my friends
but that will not help
when my life ends
i would act a certain way
even when i knew
doing so at all
is not for You
but now i am back
and i know how to live
i will live the life
with my life to give
and Your Will will show
in everything done
and all will know
i live for the Son

Taken from simple words for God from a simple man of God by daniel m  klem, page 89.
