In His Midst

Recently, one of our Oblates, enjoyed viewing my winter pictures. The picture posted on this blog entry inspired her to write a poem. She wanted to be known as "Anonymous" so I will not post her name. I do think you will enjoy reading her poem. May God continue to bless us as we strive daily to honor our Lenten promises.

In His Midst

Outside my window
The fury of winter is unleashed

Snow buries the busyness

Burdened but not bothered
The tree longs for Spring Or does it?

Inside my heart
The familiar darkness deepens

Constantly searching, seeking

Envious that the tree endures

Silently suffering, weary, waiting


In the midst of the waiting
Depleted, exhausted, resting

His presence prevails

His glorious grace breaks through

“Where you are….I Am
I never left you
Trust me!”
