Facebook? Poetic? Let’s see.
As part of High Calling Blogs’ Random Acts of Poetry last week, blogger Marcus Goodyear turned someone’s Twitter posts into a poem. So I looked through a month’s worth of messages on my Facebook wall and saw it: poetic beauty, word-gifts from praying friends.
So here it is: a compilation of blessings left on the wall.
Prayers for a Farmer’s Family
You O.K.? God brought you to mind all day.
This chorus of friends who pray, I join them.
Wish I could hug you, old friend. Or just hold
your hand. Put your hand into Abba’s hand.
He holds you. I can’t, but He will. He does.
God has a place for you, in the middle.
Friend, what can I do? Casserole coming.
Your favorite! Do you like apple pie?
Chris made the soup. Glad you liked the brownies!
Have a sled here for you, Daddy-powered.
I put books in the sack, with the veggies,
for your girls. When time is right, they may help.
On my hand, I wrote his name; won’t forget
Prayed through the night as I worked my nightshift
Prayed for you this morning, verse came to mind:
“My power is made perfect in weakness.”
Prayed for you when God woke me (3 a.m.)
Prayers, vibes, heart songs for peace, strength all the time
I honk my horn when I drive by; don’t forget
