Ready for Church

My totem creature

I got up this morning, got ready for church,

But not in a chair or a pew.

I sat on my couch with coffee in hand,

My computer screen clearly in view.

It’s not the old way,

But it’s needed at this time.

To hear God’s Word spoken,

Although there won’t be wine.

We gather still with others,

Who sign in on the site.

The body, the church is ANYWHERE,

When people seek the light.

Light is what parts the darkness,

Dispels fear and illumines God’s face.

So we can glimpse our salvation,

And leave with peace and grace.

I was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist for 40 years with a side passion for writing--poems, journals, etc. I now write for a weekly newspaper and have published essays and stories. As a trained Stephen Minister, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about humans, especially myself. I hope my writings will help others. I am a mother to four and grandmother to nine. I hope to see you all on my blog. If I'm not there, I am probably reading!
