WELCOME, JESUS

Last night as I went to bed, I thought of places you had laid your head.

I lie there in cozy comfort.  There must have been evenings when your tired body hurt.

I imagined Martha as I would have been, making up the very best

For you to lie down and get some rest.

This morning as I sit here, this heating pad feels so dear

The rocking chair turns round, so I can prop my feet up on the wall or on the bed beside me.

I’m arranging for us to meet for our morning chat.  I really do like it like that.

Oh, Jesus, do you find that very funny,

To see me struggle as I snuggle to welcome you.

……Aw, now I catch a glimpse of you, and I’m humbled that I do.

Again I hear your precious greeting,

Saying, “Here I am.  Let’s have our meeting.”

And I say, “Jesus, you are so dear. It’s such a joy to have you here.”

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...

      I’ve been a big woman all my life, or at least I have that image. One place I’m always comfortable is snuggling under the comfort of His wings. Don’t have to be under 105 pounds for that!

Anyway you must have read enough to see that I share you love of Jesus! Be blessed as you encourage others with your blogging message.
