HIS VIGIL by J. W. Riley
(You might notice that I use a lot of his stuff. He is my favorite and I have all of his works. That was a FYI statement) :)
CLOSE the book and dim the light,
I shall read no more to-night.
No - I am not sleepy, dear -
Do not go: sit by me here
In the darkness and the deep
Silence of the watch I keep.
Something in your presence so
Soothes me - as in long ago
I first felt your hand - as now -
In the darkness touch my brow:
I've not other wish than you
Thus should fold mine eyelids to,
Saying naught of sigh or tear -
Just as God were sitting here.
Pleasant dreams and candy kisses!
The following is not CH so I hope I don't offend anyone.
For those of you who have the tendency to send up a prayer now and then - I have to tell "MY STORY" tomorrow in front of the whole Lighthouse Fellowship as it is our Home Group's turn to lead. If you could just remember me I would appreciate it. Thanks!
To those who might even be curious our Fellowship is new and we were looking for someplace to meet that didn't involve owning a building and we felt that the Lord led us right to Double Six (Formerly Sam's Joint) which is a bar/restaurant/bowling alley. So...If you ever want anything REALLY different I invite you all!
