Dear Power:

Forgive me if I intrude into your realm today. I think of Esther when she went before King Xerxes. He had the power to take her life if she happened to irritate him. Fortunately, his Majesty was pleasant and welcomed her with open arms. Power, I ask you to be pleased with me today while I address some issues of concern to me.

Can you restore marriages by words, like “I’m sorry.” or “I love you?”
Can you heal bodies by replacing depression with goals and dreams?
Can you inspire moms by the sight of a baby’s smile?
Can you stretch mens’ finances by keeping their car tires from blowing out?
Can you “use the widow’s mite” to feed the hungry in foreign lands?
Can you give guidance to floundering youth by a word of wisdom from the elderly?
Can you lift the lonely by a smile?
Can you use the energy of youth to help the old?
Can you reward the continued love of a Alzheimer spouse?
Can you sustain the will to live when cancer ravishes the body?

Can you inspire disaster victims to build again?

Do you only do these through the ministry of people?


Thank you for taking time to read my letter. I will contact you next via song, meditation, scripture and prayer. Thanks for your answer. And, I feel honored that you extend your scepter to me just as King Xerxes did to Esther. I am blessed.

Your questioning and loving Servant

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    “a word of wisdom from the elderly” – really? Haven’t the elderly screwed the earth enough yet?😀

  2. This is sweet, oneta! I highly approve. God is infinitely good to us and very kind. The power of His love changes everything. I think we do have to be a bit like Esther and go boldly before His throne of grace, however. 💖

      He is indeed. When we blame God for things, we need to ask him why. In asking we will probably receive an answer. Whether we accept that answer and do anything about it, that’s the part God leaves to us. Thanks, IB.

    The Power of an infinitely Holy God is indeed beyond comprehension. May we harness the power of the risen Christ in our lives today. amen. Power in a phone call, a written word a Loving smile. Let’s be and do it.
