God's Way

                                                            He calms the mighty ocean
                                                            with the whisper of his breath
                                                            heals the sick and afflicted
                                                            restores a lost soul from death

                                                            His eyes are always wide open
                                                            to this world of peril and woe
                                                            he rises to each occasion
                                                            and miracles continue to grow

                                                            He is the road to salvation
                                                            our mighty sword and shield
                                                            the rock of all the ages
                                                            he proved on Calvary's hill

                                                            I'll look to his love in all things
                                                            in the wave of each swaying branch
                                                            in each breath, each step and moment
                                                            I'll pause to my God and give thanks

                                                            So when turbulent waters surround me
                                                            and clear skies turn to gray
                                                            I'll look for sunshine beyond them
                                                            and let God have his own way

                                                            Susie Swanson

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. Please continue to keep my niece in your prayers, For the ones that haven't heard, she was in a head on collision on Nov. 15th. It's a miracle that she's still with us. She has broken bones from her head to her feet, but Thank God no head trauma or brain swelling. She's had three surgeries in one week with more to come. They are having to reconstruct her legs , feet and arms.. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. She has a long road ahead, the doctors said even with therapy it may be a year before she puts her feet on the ground.. May God Bless Each One.. Blessings, Susie

  5. Lovely poem, Susie. Prayers for your niece here.

  6. Hi Susie, this is such a beautiful poem and so full of heart. I'm so sorry that your niece has had such a serious injury. I was glad to hear that there was no brain trauma, I thought there might be when you told me about how badly injured her jaw was. I wanted to ask, how old is your niece? Was she driving when the accident happened or was she with her family? I hope no one else in the family was hurt. My prayers and thoughts continue to be with you Susie, she sounds like a strong girl and I hope she will get the best care possible and be home with you all very soon. Have a nice evening tonight! With Love, Delisa :)

  7. Will keep your niece in my prayers, lovely poem.


  8. Thank you so much for your prayers and I'm glad you enjoyed the poem..

    Delisa, she was by herself Thank God, She had just dropped her children off at school..She is strong, very strong.. They said she's in good spirits and hasn't got to depressed yet..that will probably come later on as time passes.. when it sinks in that she can't walk and do the things she used to do.. but maybe in time with God's help she will.. thanks again for your prayers..

  9. Oh I forgot to tell you she is 23 years old.. She's young and got that going for her..

  10. A lovely stiring poem Susie. So glad your niece is on the road to recovery. She will heal and wal again, but the road is long.. The devil realy tried to wipe her out so she is very special to God. Will keep her in prayer. Love CM

  11. Dear Susie,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your niece. I will say a prayer for her, and I'm sending love your way. Your poem today really touched my heart because there's not many things I'm sure about in this world, but God's love is one thing I am sure of. Peace to you and your family.
