I wrote this poem in October 2012 as I was studying and experiencing prayer.  I know I posted it to by blog before, but folks seem to connect to it.  It resonates with me, so I’m repeating it with my Sunday morning devotions.Young Father Holding His Young Son (4-6)

      Abba, Thank You Today

Abba, Abba, how I missed you,
Even as you were by me all the time.
In your presence, you are so large, so great,
so much like when I was a very young one.
Your Name shines everywhere, every day.
You fill me up each day.
You pick me up each day.
You embrace me each day as I accept your presence.
How great is your presence here today each time we invite you in,
Each time we open our eyes to see,
Each time we listen and hear you.
Sometimes your words are so hard for me to hear,
