Sheepfold

Who can tell what a day may bring
Or what one day may take away
Who can tell how a day
May change the course of history
But there’s One who knows
He can change a life
In a moment of time
He can raise a nation
Or take one down
He does
As pleases Him
All creation is His
Trillions call Him LORD

He is the Good Shepherd
Who knows His sheep
And they follow Him
One sheep that strays
From the Father’s fold
He will seek and find
He’s the Good Shepherd
The Father gave the sheep to Him
Not one of His sheep will be lost
And no one can pluck them
From the Father’s hand
Come into the
Sheepfold
Today

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

About Carol Ann Hoel

The new me - Carol Ann. More suitably said, the old me in new circumstances of life. Again. My history has developed in parts and chapters. In person, I am Wife, Mom, Grandma, Author, and Writer, in that order, more or less. Life is good because God is good.

    Very lovely, and apropos to my life right now, so thank you. God is good, all the time; all the time, God is good! In my humble opinion this is your best poem – at least of all I have read so far, and that is saying a lot, because all of your poetry is good, and from your heart.
