One More Hill…by Carl Gooch

One More Hill
As I climb just one more hill
My youth a long time passed.
The kids are gone, the house is still.
Oh the time, it went so fast.
Now I sit and talk with God
And reminisce of yesterday.
I think of all the paths we’ve trod,
And it takes my breath away.
I recall my firstborns smile,
And I heard her first cry.
As God and I sit for awhile,
It brings tears of joy to my eyes.
God’s in my life hand in hand,
In my joy and my heartache too.
Though I didn’t always understand
He’s faithful to see me through.
=-
He was with me in my youth,
It’s true, that I cannot deny.
He spoke of His love and truth,
And He’ll be with me when I die.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
