Today I wrote my qualifications—
(They don’t look half bad!)
But I can’t bring myself to print it;
I’d feel like such a cad.
We started at a new church this month—
A lot is going on;
I’m sure they could use some help,
Someplace hither or yon.
Having come from a church of eighty,
To one with ten times that much,
I’m wondering where God will use me;
At least I could serve coffee and such!
I’ve been greeted by several nice people,
It’s clear that God’s work is being done.
And though I’m sort of a shy flower,
I’d sure like to join in the fun!
I expect as I get to know people,
Some needs, I’ll be able to meet.
I hope to be helpful where needed
(Not one to let grass grow under my feet).
In June, I finished homeschooling;
In September, my patient passed;
And in October, I was separated from
All the ministries I’d amassed.
So I’d like to resume being useful,
By the Lord of heavenly light,
With the tidbits I’ve learned in three decades
Of serving under His oversight.
Right now I’m preparing for Christmas,
And helping my mother get well—
(Out of the frying pan into the fire?
One can never tell.)
But to serve the Lord behind the scenes,
That’s my passion, Guys!
So after awhile I’ll get on some lists—
Send an email and see how it flies.
For now I’m abiding and anticipating—
How God will use me next.
And just in case, I’m ready with a resume
In Times New Roman text!
