Not Without Hope

A day at Chicago Botanical Gardens.

  by Karen Klotz, my neighbor, who has had MS for 39 years and yet lives a joyful and fulfilled life.

There are many things I can do no more

Like bake my cookies or scrub the floor

Or even run on the ocean shore

Yet a quiet calm is in my soul

For the peace of God I’ve come to know

His love and caring guides my way

And in His arms, I long to stay

As I sit in my chair quietly and still

Watching the birds as they eat their fill

The feeder is hung by the water bath

Bringing a smile as they splash and splash

My body has slowed yet my soul expands

Forever nurtured by His loving hands
