Take Me to the Ocean, Lord

Whew. It was a week of ups and downs. It both invigorated and drained me. I know that you, too have had weeks like that! It doesn’t happen often, but I wrote a poem of sorts about it. (At least I think I wrote it—but there is always a possibility that it is one I read a long time ago that I suddenly remember!). I pray your weekend is going well. I mentioned that I had my identity stolen. Progress is being made, and I have faith that everything will be ok. May God bless you today.

Take Me to the Ocean, Lord–by Kate Kresse

Take me to the ocean, Lord;               
the tides soothe my aching heart.

Take me to the mountains, Lord;
At the summit I can touch your cheek.

Take me to the meadow Lord;
where I hear larks sing your song.

Take me to the forest Lord,
Your pine and leaf strewn paths  gladden me.

Take me to the countryside, Lord;
laboring farmers remind me to work my hardest.

Take me to the rivers and lakes, Lord;           
a little boat and a little swim refresh me.

Take me to your altar, Lord;
In the quiet, I hear your voice.

Take me to my home and friends, Lord;
The gift of love awaits me there.

Remind me of your arms, Lord;
They take me everywhere.
