Today’s poem was inspired by a prompt from Writing the Sacred: A Palm Inspired Path To Appreciating and Writing Sacred Poetry by Ray McGinnis.
Divine parent-mother and father, human and divine,
I give you thanks with my entire being;
before the sun, moon and stars I declare your praise.
You pull the orphan close feeding her with the eternal milk of your unconditional love.
When I was invisible you saw me in my distress;
even when others refused to look upon me.
Your grace and mercy follow me all of my days,
like twin companions flanking me on each side during this sojourn we call life.
Who can quantify your ways or figure out your favor?
With joy I will share my testimony with all who need encouragement along the way.
Your praise will continually be upon my pen as I write of your loving ways.
Your divine love will light my path as I illuminate the darkness for your glory.
