A Question to God


I lie here in my bed

Darkness surrounds

The body but the mind

Is bright, alive and

Questioning my purpose

Here on earth

I ask the almighty God

What is your reason

For keeping me alive

When my body refuses

To move, when I am

Dependent on all others

What could you possibly

Have for a reason for

Keeping me here and alive

I heard an answer and

It was quite clear

You are here because

You are my child

I gifted you with both

A heart and a soul

Pure and innocent

You do not need

To speak nor

Move from here

Your smile is

Your gift to give

And when you have

Completed this task

I will bring you home

And you will walk freely

With me my child.

I am still fighting this salivary gland issue. I was looking on google for ways to rid this without going through surgery. I found several sites that said suck on sour candy to up the saliva in my mouth; so when I get done writing this I am heading off to the Dollar Store. Spending a dollar or two is not going to hurt my wallet, just my sugar levels, but it it can help, so be it.

Yesterday I found a house to live in, in my daughter’s home town. I sealed the deal with money and now when I move in September I won’t be a permanent door mat at my daughter’s house, and for this, I am sure she and her family will be quite grateful. She loves me, but she has her own family and life to live without a mom there.

Last evening a family came to look at my home. They were looking for a place for their  mom to purchase. They seemed impressed and went home to think about it. First thing this morning they called, and they want to buy it. Yeah! Tomorrow they will come here to seal the deal.

So the way I look at life right now is I am making the right decision to move. I prayed before any action asking God to guide me easily through each step if he thought it was a good idea to move away from here. I would say my prayer was answered. Now to reserve the moving truck and back to more packing. Thank-you Lord for showing me your answers.
