She Walked With God
Her silver hair was flecked with gold, her eyes were emerald green,
her mind was filled with memories of good things she had seen.
She had a tranquil aura—a soft gentleness so rare,
and emanated love and joy to everybody there.
We all sat very quietly, expectant and beguiled,
while she told stories of her trips to every spellbound child.
She’d travelled far when she was young to spread God’s holy word,
and went to places no one knew with names we’d never heard.
She’d been across the ocean, and trekked many jungles, too,
brought Jesus to the children, made them see the world anew.
She told us tales of those she’d met, how humbled she had been,
by all the kindness she’d been shown and wonders she had seen.
We saw the glow shine in her eyes, the soft smile on her face–
and we knew as we looked at her—she walked in God’s embrace.

I started out as a poet, my first love. It was while doing this that I began taking an interest in children's stories, written in rhyme. When I had my first book, Hedgerow Capers, snapped up by a publisher, I was elated. I now have seven children's books published.
