a moment recalled from many years ago…
In walking with the Lord, I remember a winter night in particular,
when I left a Bible study gathering of friends, by myself, to drive home.
Snow had started to fall that evening, and the moon was out…
The Lord’s presence surrounded, as if to tell of His peace in a poem.
We’d focused on His love in our study of the scriptures that night,
and how we would never really be going about our lives alone.
The glow of the moon reminded me of His Word as a lamp and Light,
which pushed away any worries to which I might have felt prone.
I carried my marked-up Bible with me–it was my valued friend;
and I had the Holy Spirit and the angels, on whom I could always depend.
