when did you sneak up on me
catching me by surprise
causing me to pause and
savor the moment, the feeling?
how did that happen without
my noticing – the subtle change,
the melting away of anger, sadness,
fear, frustration and pain?
i like you. i’m glad you’re here.
hopefully to stay for a long, long
time. i could get used to you.
feel free to make yourself at home.
i know Who sent you. i know He
worked it all out. so i’m thankful.
thankful for His mercy, His grace,
His thoughtfulness and love.
so with a big smile on my face, i
say “welcome to my place,
happiness, contentment and peace.
Stay as long as you like.”
