Happier Than I've Ever Been

Post by Happy Holmes1 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 6:21 am

Happier Than I have Ever Been

I'm happier than I have been
Ever in all my life
Being a servant of the Lord full-time,
A Mother, Grandmother, and Wife
And having the dearest friends;
(Most of whom I've never seen)
But they are real and genuine:
Better than those in a dream.

I wasn't happy, only going to Church
Where there is very little outreach
And the only time I see them
Is, when we go hear the Preacher preach.
And there is very little much-needed inreach:
Seems we all just pack the pews
To hear one person stand up and teach,
Though they are teaching the Good News!

But I am thoroughly enjoying
Being a doer of what I've heard
And feeding those who are teachable,
As if they were a tiny bird.
I deeply appreciate working
With those who love the Lord,
And who are willing to stick it out
Even when all they've got is outpoured.

It can be so exhausting,
And I do get tireder these days;
But there's an inward drawing
To the field that is ready to graze.
And although there are many scoffers,
Among my closest of kin:
Still, I would have to say,
I'm happier than I've ever been!



GOD's grace this morning 09-25-12
