I “Glow” When I Am Happy


Sometimes work gets a little overwhelming.
When personal things get caught in the midst
            Of aligned strings.

Or in the commitment to community links.
When quality family time begins to sink.
           
When the brain is weary to think,
Of how to keep the body in sync.

In a space where only rest can relieve me
From stress, though I feel I am doing my best,
There is a bigger mess.

Still I keep going, moving on impulse, gasping
            For air.


As my heart beats rapidly I know, I know that
I’m low. Perhaps even lower than it shows, below
The essential blood flow.

Some things I must let go, as sure as the wind
Blows. There I recall how Moses received a vow,
That stands even now.

My burden will never overflow. Give thanks
That is so. Even when I’m weary I know, one kind
Word makes me glow.

Dear Readers:

When I had received this collaborated verse, to me it read that without that Foundation of Faith from the past in the Bible, what would/could we hold unto when stress happens in our lives...what keeps us glow with happiness?

Many prophets were there to do this for us; they either listen or hear the Word of God and that aligns us with our lives as well.

Thank you for reading and being a part of my life,
Carol
