Timeless Wisdom from Grandma

This month would have marked my precious Grandmother’s birthday. The lessons and love that she instilled with me are very much a part of my life. I was privileged to honor her in a recent article in Fayette Woman magazine. ¬†Enjoy.

That’s When You Blessed Me . . .

Blessed me blog - November

I planned and was purposeful,
My attempts to create
Opportunities and options
Joys I could equate

I rushed here, I rushed there
Dotted “t’s” and crossed “i’s”
Proposals and queries
But disappointments did arise

No offers. No interest.
And what came I turned down
Convinced it would not fit
As my busyness abounds

I’d given up, was losing hope
I was tired of trying
I felt like my dream was slipping away
And inside, I was dying

So I surrendered. It’s all I could do
I said God, You have to show me how
You created me to want this
The problem is, I want it now.

This is my energy, my passion
But I can’t make it work
My heart, my desire
Now a burden, in my heart lurks

When I gave up, then the phone rang
Opportunity knocked – and so loud
Interest .. incredible interest
Of my work, I felt so proud

It’s a life lesson I keep learning
Why can’t I remember it so easily?
When I say Your Will, Lord, not mine
That’s when You’ve always blessed me.

Moving forward … onward and upward
