she asked me to pray for her in case she did not make it through her operation

i understand

more than she knows


she knows of my involvement

and love of Christianity

and wants to know

if she is ready

really ready

if she does not make it

through a

serious operation


she says she accepted Jesus Christ

as her personal savior

at age 14

but has not lived the live she

thinks she should have


now she is frightened

and tonight

she is asking me

if there is any forgiveness

she should ask for


i may be the wrong person to ask

i believe she is saved and will go to heaven

as she made that decision at 14 years old

when she repented of her sins


i know her fears are overwhelming

as I sit with her

and we read scriptures together


i hope I assured her

she will step into heaven

if she does not awaken


we eat a snack at a sandwich shop

she leaves with

a peace


i hope my advice

was Biblical

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
