Prior to my having radiotherapy in 2002 I found some things quite overwhelming. However, in God I found rest. I wrote this poem 2 months before having radiotherapy.
EXCHANGING THE OVERWHELMING FOR REST
To laugh, to love, to know, to understand
To have and be sheltered, safe in His hands
To find it all here in this small place
In times of desperation, to see His face
I Am is Him alone
His nature at best
I offer the overwhelming
He gives me rest
At the time that I wrote this blog, in September 2002, I signed off everything I wrote and painted with ‘E.G.’. This was an abbreviation for Eternal Gratitude which was what I felt and hoped I would always feel.
