Tether My Soul

Tether my soul, tie peace to my frame,

Make love my goal, steady my aim

That wherever I am, whatever I do,

Your presence in me would point others to You.

Inspiration from a frosty soccer net…

    I love this–I especially love the idea that my soul is “tethered” to HIM!!

    This made me smile on so many levels. First, I have a frosty soccer net in my back yard. A few weeks ago the grandboy and I braved the chilliness and muddy back yard to go and kick around for a half hour. Cocoa soon to follow. “)

    Second, I just love this. It reflects the prayer of my heart. I am part of a ministry (similar to Emmaus Walk, called Koinonia) that shares encouraging mail/gifts with the participants. May I include this poem as my gift. I will heartily give you credit. I just was so blessed and want to pass the blessing along.

    as a mom of three teen-age boys and having had various tethered nets in the yard and driveway … yes, it speaks to my heart … and makes me reflect on my goals and desire to be intentional in the season God has put me in … you made me smile! Thank you, dear!

    A nice poem for an image that could have easily taken a different twist.
