Lie Still my Sweet
Recently, several of my dear friends have lost loved ones: two are presently in my life and one was a part of my life during my former ministry years. As I have prayed for these three incredible women, I wondered what I could say that would provide a few fleeting moments of peace. I tried to imagine what God would say to them and this poem is my earnest, yet feeble, attempt. It is my gift, along with prayers for God’s sustaining grace to heal their hurting hearts. I feel at rest and close to my Creator while in the forest.
