A Child’s Prayer

Oh light where did your splendid sparkle go
To touch the heaven that I know
Where I visit God and sit upon His lap
I talk with Jesus, lay upon a lion, and take a nap
Joyful colors make a rainbow of love that can dance
Angel wings soar, and fragrance doth enhance
The brilliance of the moment in the sky
I weep with love for You, and I will try
Bending, before you Lord, to say to You
While stammering within my own heart,
I hear Your words; “I know you do โ€“
and my child
I love you too!”

written by Joni – feeling grateful for all my WordPress friends, sleep tight, and don’t let those bed bugs bite – don’t forget to say your prayers – good night, love you all

  1. This is SOOOO wonderful, Joni–I love the part about sleeping on the Lion! Have a good sleep tonight, restful and refreshing.๐Ÿ’•

    1. One of the characters in my book is a wise lion who the two main characters sleep on. I love that we will be able to talk to animals in โ€œThe New Jerusalemโ€ or heaven. Thank you Rhen. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni

  2. I love this your words ring true. When I am great need of pacifying I lay in the Lords hand and HE covers with with a soft energy blanket to make me sleep. Bless you.

    1. Oh thank you, your comment made me tear up. I prayed before I wrote this poem and asked God to send me words that would comfort someone. I am so glad you could relate to this. We are especially blessed to be covered by His blanket right now. Have a truly blessed week. Love and hugs Joni ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ

        I really hope you are having a fabulous evening. I feel like we did not “speak” in a while. I guess I miss you.
        Sending you love

      2. Oh thank you my dearest. I miss you too. I get so excited to see your post. I thought you might be very busy with finishing with your students. I also know this was a sad and difficult time for you giving the lack of personal contact with them before graduation. I will write tomorrow I had some news I wanted to share. I hope that is ok. I look forward to writing then. Sleep well my dear friend. Love and hugs to you Button from honeybun

      3. Thank you for your understanding Joni. You are a sweetheart. I am thrilled you have things to share. I can’t wait. I look forward to reading the news. Sleep well too honeybun.

      4. There is a little subliminal message in my last photo with post today. See if you can find it. Love and hugs dearest Button. Sending love, blessings, cheese cake and hearts to you. Love honeybun ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿฅฐ

  4. If you are mine,
    then am I am yours?

    If you are the breeze I stand in
    when I am simply cold,
    then am I the taste of your breath now?

    If you are the hands that hold me
    when I am simply scared,
    then am I what runs to your arms?

    If you are the tide that feeds me
    when I am simply lost,
    then am I the light on your shore?

    If you are simply mine,
    then am I simply yours?

    1. This is a beautiful poem and so touching and loving a comment. Thank you for this amazingly written work. Your poetic comment is gorgeous. Thank you my friend. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni

      1. Hi… it looks like an old site address was stored on my profile. Seems like that’s been fixed now.

    1. Thank you so much my friend. I am so glad you like it. Your words mean a lot to me. Thank you Sovely. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. Oh that is very kind. It is a blessing that poetry is making a comeback finally. I love poetry but it hasnโ€™t been as popular as it was at one time. Thank you so much for reading and commenting Anna I really appreciate it. Have a truly blessed day. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni

  5. So beautiful and emotionally touching, Joni. Any artist would be compelled to paint a child sitting in Godโ€™s lap talking with Christ.๐Ÿ™โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

    1. You are so kind thank you so much. I am really glad my poem moved you that way as I believe he is with us even when times are hard, he will never forsake us. I hope you have a really blessed weekend my friend. Thanks again for the sweet comment. Love and hugs Joni ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. You are a phenomenal writer Joni. Your heart speaks in a language that reaches out to all kinds of sorrows in life. What a blessing it is and thank you for sharing! Super Hugs!!๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

      2. Oh thank you so much that really touches my heart. Seriously I appreciate your kind words immensely. I wrote two books about my childhood and then my teenage years and adulthood. It took four years and no one was interested in publishing them. I understand people that have not been traumatized during their years at home find it difficult to believe the things I wrote about. However I feel like it was reading books about other peopleโ€™s experiences on getting to a โ€œhappy placeโ€ that even made me aware that other people had the same issues I had at one time. I am blessed and loved and am fulfilled now and donโ€™t take it for granted. So now I try to give back with my blog. I am grateful that you understand my poetry and read between the lines. God bless you and the blogging you do. Love and many hugs coming from NC to you. Joni ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ๐Ÿค—

      3. Good morning Joni, many authors pay publishers all the way to their notoriety. But it is not necessary to go that route. Your writings are beautiful, healthy and healing. Youโ€™ve completed and published Th Path Toward The Light, and you can do many more. I believe in your loving messages Joni and your heart will continue to guide you. A bouquet filled with Hugs for you Joni! ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบโ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ
