(with WORSHIP)

A Psalm of Parenting

 

The sadness of my situation is not based on visitations,

but on the leaving, which must come as they go back to where they're from!

 

Each time they come, and must depart, they leave a hole upon my heart;

These children, whom the All Divine decided, briefly, should be mine.

 

They come for a visit, making “life” a wreck, my life seems hi-jacked, what the heck?

Then out they roll, and take my air, it's hard to breathe now, is that fair?!

 

The “norm” is back, that's some relief, but missing them is such a grief!

To be quite honest it's hard, both ends, the coming and going, put me in a spin!

 

I can't decide just what I should do, how I should think, to get me through,

this mixed-bag of emotions, Oy; its hard sometimes to find the Joy.

 

It's hard to focus just on the GOOD, and trust GOD for the rest, like I know I should.

So pressing in, again today, to hear just what my God will say...

 

To hear His comfort and wisdom true, the only way I can get through!

To sense His presence, with HIS JOY, that helps me overcome the OY.

 

Yes! That IS where I need to be, my head upon my Father's knee!

So please excuse me Haverim, I'm going, to commune with Him.

 

And when I rise, from that place of Love, my Praise will rise to God above;

My gratefulness will have returned, My purpose, once again, re-burned.

 

All is well, my soul, be still! We each must find and DO His will;

And where that takes us, He will keep, He does not slumber, nor does He sleep.

 

I'll face the day in quiet trust, though come and stay and leave they must,

My Father has them in His hand, And they are tuned to His command.

 

But even if they sometimes stray, His love will draw them to the Way,

They shall not wander far, you see, for prayers of faith bring victory.

 

We know that if HE does not come, again one day they'll wander home,

to start the cycle all again, this joyful, oyful, delightful pain!

 

That ONE DAY SOON, His Kingdom come, ruled, of course, by His Dear Son,

We'll stay together, time shall cease, and All we'll know is Joy and Peace!

 

Until that day, we must press in, to win our battle over sin,

We must press on, into His Love, until we reach that realm above!

 

We have today, and that is all, so we must focus on the call.

We have a purpose in this Life, so grasp the joy and lose the strife!

 

We are not orphans, cold, alone, Our Father sits upon the Throne!

So come my soul, cast off the oy, and choose His gracious, abundant JOY!
